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.

    Hello Brandy and a big congratulations to your whole family on the new addition Hamish :) . Try and get some rest in, where you can, until you recover.

    How gorgeous is he and going on his birth length Hamish will grow into an over 6' lovely young man similar to your husband who also looks tall as well.

    Both my sons were long born at 20" and 20.5" long, 9lb 7oz and premmie at 8lb 6oz, and grew into adult full height at 6'2" tall and 6'3" in height.

  • Melanie May 28, 2018

    What a beautiful name! I love the fact that you choose not to just take "any" names but made it really special. What stories to tell your children later! I have a little story I'd like to share for laughter. I was pregnant with my second child, a girl and had to have a c section. We were happy to welcome any gender into our family praying for a healthy child. I had decorated the room by painting a tree mural with birds and butterflies on the wall and started to write the name on a sign that was on the door. The name was going to be Katja, a name that has special meaning to me. To make a long story short, birthday was there...and the doctor asked what name if any we had decided on when our little darling was born. We told him and he said, ok...what else..we said there were no others, whereof he responded we better come up with a boys name!!!!!!!! I have a picture of us, crying in surprise, relief and happiness all at the same time right in the op room. We actually found a name right that day...that starts with just the same two letters! Kai! And he honors his name fully as he is like a wave in the ocean, gentle and kind, but strong and determined. The pictures of Hamish you posted are adorable, what little angle. You light up my life with stories, ideas and your way of mothering, for that I am very grateful! God bless you and your family, much happiness to you and yours.
