"Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3
We told our boys the baby's name many months ago knowing that it would probably leak out at some point. Much to our surprise and delight, they kept her name a secret the WHOLE TIME!!! We're talking about little boys four and six years old!!! We are especially proud of them as they have proven themselves trustworthy in this matter...a fun, family secret. Not even the 4th grade girls who pestered them EVERY Sunday at church could break their resolve to keep this secret. Amazing! And you can bet they were super excited to go to church last Sunday and finally tell their friends all about Sadie Kathryn!
Isaac, on the other hand, had no idea what a secret was, but thankfully he doesn't speak very clearly yet. He said Sadie's name all the time, but most people thought he was saying "baby baby." If you spent any time with him, you'd clearly understand him saying "Baby Dadie!" When our Pastor and wife visited us in the hospital, I asked Isaac to tell Miss Libby the baby's name and he replied, "It's a secret!" Ha - the day that he can finally spill the beans, he decided to still keep it under wraps!
