Introducing Baby Number Nine


A month ago, I gave birth to a baby boy.

We now have five daughters and four sons.

This baby boy was our biggest child! He was 9 pounds, 1 ounce (4,11 kg) and 22 inches long. He was born at home on April 27th at 8:20 p.m.

His name is Hamish.

    Hamish fits right in with your other beautiful children What a gift you have given them with siblings. My mom was one of 13 and there was such a richness in their relationships with one another. God bless you all.

  • Laurie in AZ May 28, 2018

    Beautiful baby! Love the name! Congratulations!

  • Mandy May 28, 2018

    Congratulations! He is beautiful just like all of your children :)

  • Pat May 28, 2018

    Congratulations! I love his name.

  • Marcia R May 28, 2018

    He is so content in his washpan! You are indeed blessed to have such a healthy family. My babies were three months old before they were that size--but they started out around 6 lbs at birth. I was only 5 ft tall--now a couple inches shorter--you don't look very tall in your photos, but taller than I for sure. I look forward to seeing and hearing about his exploits in the months and years to come!

  • Joanne in Birmingham UK May 30, 2018

    Hi Marcia you were lucky with your babies being 6lb when they were born. I’m 4 ft 11 and 3/4” and my boys were 8lb 4oz and 9lb respectively and both were 22 inches long. My fault I suppose for marrying a man who is 6ft 2” tall. I always say I was pregnant from my eyebrows to my toes with both my boys. One is 16 and 6’ 1” the other is 14 and 5’ 8” so I always feel like I’m living in a land of giants

  • Kat May 28, 2018

    Beautiful boy and a fitting name. Congratulations!

  • Shannon May 28, 2018

    I was just wondering earlier this morning if I had missed seeing his name! Congratulations!

  • Roxie May 28, 2018

    What a beautiful baby. His name is great. Does it have a meaning? Your picture of him is so sweet. Thank you for sharing. Congratulations to your family.

  • Angela May 28, 2018

    Congratulations ! He is adorable. ❤️

  • Natalie D May 28, 2018

    A beautiful boy and name!

  • Cindi May 28, 2018

    Such a precious photograph! And a wonderful name for another wonderful addition to your family. Blessings to you all!
