Oh Boy! Oh Boy!

If you guessed that Joseph and I would be adding another son to our family, you would be 100% correct! We are very proud and delighted to announce that Ansley, Eli, and Wyatt's youngest sibling will be a little brother. And if you would like to start calling him by name when you say prayers for him, we have named him Seth Alexander Finchum.

We chose:

Seth- because it means appointed one. Seth was appointed to Adam and Eve to console their broken hearts after they lost Cain and Abel. For those of you who aren't completely familiar with this story... Cain killed Abel and was then sent into exile... which means that a mother loses two sons :( However, God sees how heartbroken Eve is and gives her another son which they named Seth to ease (not erase) her sufferings.

Seth will be our third son and I am sure his life will bring great joy to our family. He will not replace Wyatt... but he will be a reminder to our family that God knows what we need long before we do.

Alexander- because we wanted to incorporate some part of Wyatt in his little brothers name. Alexander means "warrior of men" just as Wyatt meant "little warrior". I think one of Wyatt's greatest qualities was his warrior spirit. I very much like the idea of having his baby brother carry a name with the same meaning. I like to think Seth will have that same warrior spirit as Wyatt did. He'll need to have that type of spirit to survive Ansley!!!

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. Please pray that Seth continues to grow into a strong and healthy baby that our family gets to bring home in our arms instead of just our hearts.

Kayli said...

This post really touched my heart. That you put so much thought into your son's name is wonderful to read. I know a lot of people who don't put any thought into the name or meaning.
I also appreciate how much you trust in God & see his blessings.

Lynnette Kraft said...

Congrats! Seth Alexander is a perfectly handsome name. :)

I just realized that your last name is Finchum. My mother in law is a Fincham (with an a). They are from Blue Rapids, KS and she's totally into genealogy. Your husband's family and her family are probably connected SOMEHOW! If they are, she'd know! ha!!!!

Happy Day!
When are you due?

I am so happy for you and your family. It will be nice to watch someone go through all my fears before I try and have another baby. I was wondering did you have a amnio done or genetic testing done on Wyatt? My son had an amnio done and his testing came back positive for TD but I just wanted to make sure I am not missing something either.
