"It's a boy!"
My first thought was, "Can life BE any more fulfilling?!" I wanted to cry but tears wouldn't come. I wanted to jump up and down, but my doctor wouldn't let me. I wanted to scream but was afraid I may terrify the other moms-to-be in the waiting room.
I came from a family of all girls. I'm the oldest of 6 daughters. Yeah, I have some boy cousins but I have only changed a handful of boy diapers in my day. But I am so anxious to have a little boy! On our way home, Grant and I began to talk of all the things we want him to be; all the things we would teach him. Grant said he would teach him to be God's man, to be a warrior, to be tough and rugged and boyish. He's going to teach him to play guitar and to hunt. He's going to send him climbing up a tree. I'm going to teach him to be a gentleman; A manly man with the heart of a servant. I'm going to teach him to sing, to be polite and full of manners, to cook what he kills, and to love his mommy! I cannot wait to meet this kid!
Many have asked if we have a name. The answer is, yes we do!
Nathan James Lee
Nathan is Grant's first name. Nathan is a Bible name of a great prophet of the Lord. The name in Hebrew means "Gift of God" and that, he most certainly is!
James is also a Bible name (also one of my favorite books in the Bible!). It is a good, strong, manly name. It is the name of my grandfather who is Heaven now, watching us run this race called life. The name in Hebrew means "Supplanter."
So, now we are waiting for April to get here! Praise God for granting us a son! As Luke 2:23b says, "...Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord."
