His Name!

This is by far the longest it has taken us to decide on a name for any of our babies!  But after much debate, we have decided on a name.

Scout David Wagner

Scout - (French/American/English) To observe, one who has upstanding qualities, an explorer, a seeker of truth. 

David - (Hebrew) Beloved, Friend

From the Hebrew name דָּוִד (Dawid), which was probably derived from Hebrew דוד (dwd) meaning "beloved". David was the second and greatest of the kings of Israel, ruling in the 10th century BC. Several stories about him are told in the Old Testament, including his defeat of Goliath, a giant Philistine. Jesus was descended from him.

David is also a part of the names of some great men on both sides of our family.  
Dearest Scout, 
We are giving you a strong name.  It's because I 100% believe that God has great and mighty plans for you.  And you are going to have to be strong to be the third child in our family :). And I can tell that you are already going to be a scout.  Roaming around your home inside of me during all hours of the night and kicking me just when I start to drift off.  You are strong and loved, and I will work everyday to remind you of that.
Can't wait to kiss your sweet and round little face.  I'm excited for what you are going to bring into our family, little scout.  
Love you, Mom
