Drum roll please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Bayer Triplets are two sweet girls and one precious boy!
We are overjoyed! So those of you who guessed this combination, you get a prize....a full day with the babies when they arrive. So sign up for your prize day now! Ha ha ha! I'm so funny.
I have felt that they were 2 girls and a boy from the beginning of my pregnancy, I guess it's motherly instinct. Now I bet you want to know the names of these little miracles. We have prayed about and thought about names for a long time. We feel like the Lord led us to 3 beautiful names.
Baby A - Hope Allison
We chose Hope because it has been the theme of our lives for the last few years and we feel it is a beautiful name. It also has the meaning of "faith". Her middle name is Allison, which is my mother's middle name, my middle name, and Ivy's middle name. She is carrying on a legacy.
Baby B - Genevieve Hannah
We heard the name Genevieve a few years ago and fell in love with it. It means "white wave" in the ocean, a beautiful picture. The name Hannah has been close to my heart because it relates to Hannah from the Bible. Her story is in 1 Samuel 2:1-10. She was an infertile woman who prayed and prayed for a child and God blessed her with her son Samuel. Her faith was amazing. Hannah means "grace" and "magnifies God".
Baby C - Ephraim Titus
We recently chose Ephraim because we feel like it is a strong name for our little boy. Ephraim means "fruitful". Ephraim was also a prominent figure in the bible, he was the second son of Joseph (Genesis 41). The middle name Titus is a name we have loved for a long time. Erik was led to the name Titus. Titus means "Giant" and "hero". There is an entire book in the New Testament written with instructions to Titus from Paul. Titus was a trusted companion of Paul.
Now the secret is out! After we found out the news we did buy the outfits you see pictured above and it's hard to not shop everyday. Some dear friends have given us an abundance of boy and girl clothing and it's like Christmas every day at our house. We are having so much fun preparing for them.
I continually pray that our babies will be a shining light in this world, that they will know Jesus as their Savior, and they will share Him with the world. Praise God for new life!
Love you all!
