Scott and I got to talking baby names on Sunday night. We talked a little about the ones we’d already discussed. Then Scott mentioned the name Josiah. We decided to look up the story of King Josiah which can be found in 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles. He is also mentioned in Lamentations but we didn’t read that. So now the name Josiah is in the running and probably in the lead!
Josiah means “fire of the Lord,” “Jehovah has healed,” “God restores” etc. Those are the three I’ve found so far!
Here are a couple verses I really liked.
2 Kings 23:25 “Now before him there was no king like him, who turned to the LORD with all his heart, with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses; nor after him did any arise like him.”
2 Chronicles 34:1-3 “Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the ways of his father David; he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was still young, he began to seek the God of his father David; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of the high places, the wooden images, the carved images, and the molded images.”
We are considering using David as a middle name because Josiah was said to be like his father David. We’ve liked the name David for awhile anyway and had even considered it as a first name at one point. Scott has a good friend from western NY whose name is David and we have a couple frineds from church named David, too. 😉
David means “dearly loved” or “beloved.”
So what do you think? Do you like Josiah David? 🙂
On to belly shots.
I took another belly shot a week ago at 11 weeks 3 days pregnant. I’m posting my 6 weeks 3 days pregnant shot as well for comparison. You can really tell that baby is growing! And it really is baby as I’ve lost another 5 pounds in the last two weeks for a grand total of 6 pounds lost this pregnancy!
Can you see the growth? I can hardly wait until this precious baby is born!
