A lovely way to announce their new addition to the family. When my wife was pregnant with our first child, I wrote a lullaby to her, based on the meanings of the names we had chosen:
Leah Rachel, grace and beauty.
Loved by God, and favored by man.
Fruitful and cherished. This weary little lamb
I entrust to our Shepherd's care.
My wife asked me why I didn't write one for Andrew Philip, in case it was a boy. I replied, "Then I'd have wasted a song." We wanted a girl and got one. The boy came later.
