It's a boy!

We are so exited to announce that our third baby Lockett is a boy!  He looks healthy and beautiful, and we are so thankful for him.

He was a little shy at first, but eventually we saw Obi Juan's lightsaber.

Ava took the news like a champ, even though she was hoping for a sister.  Lev is not really sure what is going on, but he loved the cupcake to celebrate and likes to pretend "my have baby in my tummy too!"

We've had our boy name in mind for a long time.  Josh picked the first name and I picked the middle.  Like Levin, our first name has a literary tie (Levin is from Anna Karenina), and our new baby will be named after the author of one of our favorite books-turned-musical.  The baby's middle name comes from the founder of our new hometown, and an old name that I've loved for years.  

(Not everyone will like our name, we've already had some odd looks and comments.  That's okay.  No one else has to deliver him or stay up with him at night.  I'm sure his dimples will win over any name haters once he arrives.  And hopefully those hateful folks will just hush and not say anything.)

Now that you have the background and ground rules, I'm happy to announce that his name will be Hugo Abner Lockett. 

Hugo means "bright in mind and spirit" and Abner means "the Father is Light."  

We look forward to sharing more about our new baby Hugo and his big brother and sister.  Many shenanigans to come!
