#2, here we go...

A few pics of the "new" nursery.  If some of them look familiar, it's because they are!  We did Heidi's nursery as a pretty generic room so it would be easy to change 'just in case.'  Well, that paid off!  We changed all the pink parts to blue or brown, and voila... done!  Added a few touches just for baby boy too.
Before - for Heidi
After  - for Baby Boy

Also, we have a name for baby boy!  We've known what we wanted to name him for a long time (since before Heidi)...

Joseph Barrett Lantz

Joseph is the name of many of Matt's patriarchs (grandfather, great grandfather...) and we decided we wanted to bring it back.  It means "Jehovah increases" or "continuation" so it fits nicely.  Barrett was Darcie's grandmother's maiden name (Gwynne Irvin Barrett).  It means "bear-like" or "bear strength."  Good for a manly little guy.

We also found this verse as we were reading through the story of Joseph in the Old Testament.  One of our prayers is that our little guy would grow up to be a man of integrity and wisdom like Joseph was in the Bible, and that he would have influence like Joseph did, so that someday, someone like Pharoah (a pagan) would say these words of him...

Just 2+ months until we get to meet our little guy.  We are really excited and praying for a healthy baby.  We know he will change our lives!

Heidi also painted him a few pictures to match his room.
She's slowly learning what it's going to mean to have a little brother...
and be a BIG SISTER!
