Some of our closest friends, Victor and Adrianna-and 'lil Vic- were scheduled to have their second baby on Thursday via scheduled C-Section. Vic was in Texas, Adri back in California. Vic planned on leaving Texas today to go back to be in Ca. in time for the baby's Thursday delivery. Well, little Joshua had different plans....he decided HE wanted to come into the world today!!! So, weighing in at 6 1/2 pounds, 19 1/2 inches long and looking like Vic, Joshua Christian made his entrance.
Little Joshua has a cool story behind how he got his name....
A few years back Vic spent close to a year doing some teaching for his job back on the East Coast where he and Adrianna met another couple and their little boy Joshua. Vic and Adri spent quite a bit of time with this other couple and Joshua and would go to his baseball games and such. They really had a connection to this little boy. Sometime after Vic and Adri returned from the East Coast Joshua's dad called Vic to let him know Joshua had died. Joshua had been hospitalized after his last baseball game when they found out he had Leukemia. Within 3 short days Joshua died.
In Joshua's memory, Vic and Adri decided to name this baby Joshua.
So again, a BIG heartfelt WELCOME to Joshua Christian!!! We can't wait to see you!!!
and CONGRATULATIONS to Vic, Adri and BIG brother 'lil Vic!!!
Vic emailed me some pics last night of the new 'bundle of joy'.....How TOTALLY adorable is he?!!!
