Confession Number 76: We Finally Did It

First of all, I want to thank everyone for your prayers and kind words last week while we were awaiting my testing for gestational diabetes.  After being poked like a pin cushion, we finally got the results from my doctor that my blood sugar levels were perfectly normal during my three hour glucose test.  Yay!  They were actually very, very good.  I was so excited when we found out I celebrated with a glass of peach tea and some chocolate!  I'm not sure why I was so out of whack during the first test, but it really doesn't matter now.  We are so very thankful for a faithful God who continues to bless and provide for us and for great friends who support us no matter what we are going through.

We do have a little announcement today!  After much discussion and deliberation Dustin and I have finally agreed on a name for Baby Brother.  I'm so excited for him to have a name.  It just makes the entire pregnancy feel more real and makes us feel like he is already a part of our family.  Without any further delay....Baby Brother's name will be......
Colton Dean Matthews
We will call him Cole, but we liked the way Colton sounded with the middle name we had choosen for him, Dean.  Dean is Dustin's dad's middle name and we love the old flair and coolness that it adds.  Cole Matthews.  Doesn't that just sound like a football name?  I think so.  I think it is absolutely perfect and I can't wait to hold sweet baby Cole in my arms!


  1. Glad that you are okay and baby boy has a name.

  2. Yes, Cole Matthews is for sure a football name. lol I loved having a name and gender of our children before birth. For exactly the same reasons as you. I never was able to pinpoint why I liked calling the baby by name but I think you worded it perfectly.
