He Finally has a name...

Spencer Brigham
Spencer is a name I love and have for the last few years.
It is also the name of President Kimball who I have felt a connection to as I journeyed through infertility grief..reading his own writing about the pain he suffered. Spencer is also the middle name of President Monson who is a big supporter of adoption. And lastly....the name Spencer has a very interesting connection to the Birth Mother. We feel like this name was meant for him.

Brigham comes from Brad's Great-Grandfather and everyone in our little family has a "b" in their name....so it works out perfectly.

Spencer is doing well...I got to change his diaper for the first time today and hold him for 2 different feedings!
It was a great day!!!
