The Life of Jennifer Dawn: Boy or Girl?

Boy or Girl?

Have you been wondering about baby #3?  Curious to know whether we are having another boy or girl?  We've actually known for a couple of weeks now, but any announcements got pushed aside in light of everything else that has been going on.  Close family and friends were told, and my dad was able to hear the news before he passed away.  We had names prepared for either gender...
But obviously we only need one of these names, so without further ado...
I'm excited to announce that the baby's name will be...
Caleb Joseph.
That's right!  It's a boy!  L.G. was quite pleased.  She enjoys being the only little princess.  Lydia Grace and Eli will have a baby brother in March.

Caleb-A biblical name just like Lydia and Elijah (Eli)
Joseph-My dad's name

Not to put a damper on joyful news, but I have to admit that I have worried about my sweet Caleb.  Between all the stress and the clotting conditions that make my pregnancies high risk, I've been anxious about him.  I've almost been tempted to call the doctor before my next appointment just to see if they would do a sooner check-up.  Each time I feel him kick, it is so reassuring though.  I know God has C.J. in his hands.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:13-14

I would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for a happy pregnancy and healthy baby!
