Welcome, Welcome, Second Son!

What do these movies share in common?

Hint.  November Boy is here, and they have something to do with his name.

Creedence Shepherd (Creed for short) made his arrival this morning at 1:10 a.m.
He was 8 pounds and 9 oz and was 22 inches long.

Since we announced Million's name with Louis Armstrong's "Thanks a Million" we only thought it would be fair to have a little music with this post.  :)

The reason we chose Creedence's name is that we wanted something that would really represent who we are and what we believe in.  We're pretty set on choosing names with meanings that our kids can carry throughout their years as a blessing to them, instead of just choosing a family name, a Bible name, or a name that sounds cute.  We actually chose Shepherd as a first name initially, but the thought of someone calling him Shep as a nickname made me cringe.  Shepherd was chosen to represent one of the functions of Christ, just like Million has Christ as Advocate (Kumelachew: "He stands for you") as part of his name.  We chose Creedence (the Puritan spelling) because it means to establish a firm or strong belief.  A Creed in itself is a well thought out written statement of belief, like the Apostles' Creed in the song above.

We're grateful (or "happy to God," as Million would say) for this new little life, and we'll be writing more about him and posting a few more pictures in a few days.
