How do I say this?

Robin and I are reeling right now. I don't even know where to begin telling you. And so I'm just going to plunge right in and say it:

Lindsey and Victor chose us!
We are going to be parents on the 9th of June!

We are naming her


because Jesse means "Gift from God" or "God's Gift" and Lee because every firstborn on Robin's side of the family for the last four generations have had Lee as their second name. We are double-barrelling it so that it is more feminine.

Oh, praise God with us for His mercy and kindness and love! He has been so merciful to us. He is blessing us with a baby girl for His glory. Oh my word!!! We are going to be parents!!! Oh my word!!!

What's the time difference between here (Texas) and there?! You need to be posting! Updating us!
Gah. I am so excited for you and Robin. Just wait... soon, you will KNOW that you are bringing home a little girl just by looking at the lint trap of your dryer. Everything goes to pink with a little girl. Whether you like it, or not. Girls are so much fun... I'm betting you are going on a shopping spree this weekend, right?! :P

Carla said...

YAY!!!!!!!!! Doing a happy dance here for you, and getting lots of strange looks.

I'm so thrilled and excited for you both. I will be praying for you, and for Jesse-Lee's 1st Mom.

Kelly said...

I love the name. Can't wait to see her!!! You are going to be a great mom. :)

Irritable Mother said...

Char, you know I am absolutley thrilled for you. But I must admit I am a little jealous, too.
You get to have a baby AND big boozies.
That isn't fair!!!
