Father and Son

When I was pregnant Andy and I had a little agreement. We didn’t want to refer to our growing baby as “it.” So I referred to the baby as “he” and Andy referred the baby as “she.” So for nine months I constantly heard Andy talk to our unborn baby as she. Everyday he would ask me “how’s she doing?”  I would answer,” He is doing fine.” Ha. It may seem silly, but it worked for us.  Even though we played this little game I strongly believed that the baby I was carrying was a boy. I was not surprised at all the moment he arrived and the dr. announced he was a boy. Andy on the other hand was very surprised. For the first few days he just kept saying to Eli, “I can’t believe you are a boy!” Well now that the shock has worn off I know that Andy is very happy to have a son. They are so precious together. The bond between father and son is so special and I look forward to watching their relationship unfold as our boy grows. I love both my handsome men so much! I praise God everyday for both of them.
