I want to begin this by saying we are COMPLETELY and utterly overwhelmed with the amount of messages, prayers, and love we’ve received from all over the world. I never knew this community that we’ve become a part of over time (shout-out to the mamas and papas allllll over!!) would be so uplifting and just so kind. I seriously cried reading all of the comments and DMs on my social pages, and I am so grateful for it all. Tim, Leni, and I also couldn’t be more overwhelmed with love or pride for our newest member: BOONE IAN JAMES BRENT!
Boone was born in the afternoon on August 22nd on National Rainbow Baby Day…excuse me while I cry and praise God because he is SO SO GOOD (for those that don’t know, a “rainbow baby” is a child born after a miscarriage or passing away of an infant. For parents, these babies are “the rainbow after the storm”). After a pretty intense labor due to getting an epidural that didn’t work all the way–but more on that later!! He came into the world weighing in at 7 lbs, 5 oz. We chose his middle names for both of our fathers: men who mean the entire world to us. Knowing that those names are wrapped up in one sweet little boy’s is so special to us!! It took us foreverrrrr to decide on his first name, but we knew the middle names pretty much from the jump.
Boone is literally so precious, and seeing Leni with him makes me want to die of happiness. I mean, seriously: how are we THIS blessed?! He’s an incredibly good eater, sleeper, and is such a cuddle fiend–he loooooves being held, which is the total opposite of how Leni was. I’ll share more about him and our fam soon–but for right now, we’re going to enjoy having this sweet and snuggly little boy to love on and get to know as we begin this incredible journey as a family of four.
