It has been a month since we found out what baby #2 is. And we are FINALLY telling our big news! Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to do a special gender reveal announcement but I just didn’t quite know what that would be. It didn’t have to be something no one has done. Just special to us and our family. Little did I know just how special our little one is going to be…
After we found out what we were having, life kind of just got a hold of us and we just didn’t feel like it was the right time to post our news.
I appreciate those who reached out to me to make sure everything was okay. And I apologize if I didn’t respond back, I read every message but just wasn’t able to respond to them all. We were dealing with our sweet little Ellie getting really sick twice in a two week span (she just recovered from that about a week ago) so obviously she is our top priority and we needed to take care of her and get her back to her normal self. And my husband’s family lost a very important man, his grandfather. Which was beyond devastating. Ever since I met Caleb, his grandfather was someone he talked about often and I knew he was someone he looked up to so much. Shortly after that, I got a call saying my grandmother won’t be with us much longer… I just didn’t feel right even working on our good news with everything we were going through.
Despite everything, my husband and I decided it was time to share our news. Especially since we knew just how important this little baby of ours is.
With all of that being said…
We are so excited to announce that the newest addition to our family is…
Oh how we love this sweet little one so much already.
We also decided to tell everyone his name. If you followed me when I was pregnant with Ellie, we didn’t publicly announce her name until she was born. But this time we decided to announce his name before he is born for a few reasons. My husband and I always knew that if we had a boy, we would incorporate his grandfather’s name, either first or last. About a few weeks ago we decided that it would be his first name. Nothing else appealed to us. A few days after we decided, Caleb really wanted to tell his grandfather that we were naming our boy after him.
And I’m so glad we did, because little did we know that just a few days after that…his grandfather would pass away. I know Caleb envisioned his grandfather holding little Warren in July and my heart just breaks because that won’t happen.
So our little Warren is one special little guy. He is the only boy to carry on the Cheek name and his great grandfather’s name.
Of course every baby is a blessing to a family, but we can’t help to feel extremely blessed to be welcoming this little boy into our family this summer.
