Baby's name

We've decided on a name!

Noah Patrick

We decided on Noah for the Biblical references: We have to trust that God will guide us through this storm and keep His promise in the end - that Noah will be awaiting us in Heaven, keeping seats warm for us. So we're banking on that rainbow.... Dave also points out that Noah in the Bible is first recorded drunk. I think this will bear no similarity to our Noah.

Patrick is for my cousin, James Patrick Walthall, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in 2007 at the too-young age of 26. Noah will also be taken from us at too young an age, but both son's memory will still live after them.


  1. I love the strong, beautiful, meaningful name you have chosen for your son.

  2. Annie - I'm about to look up that Noah drunk reference.
    Rhys Patrick is named in honor of Scott's younger brother, Mark Patrick. He died of leukemia at the age of four. It appears Patrick is a very popular middle name in heaven.

    Scott will be so excited to learn Noah's name.

  3. Dave, Dave, Dave, :::::shaking head:::

  4. I do love Noah Patrick's name!

  5. lovely name! lovely sentiment! not sure about the drunk thing? but whatever! The other day -out of the blue John said he was going to have a cousin -you are in our thoughts, prayers and hearts everyday!

  6. Love that name....AND you two. And Noah. I can't wait to see pictures of him! Lil Wrig!
