He’s finally here! Announcing the arrival of our newest member of the family Andrew Gregory Hibiske! He was born on August 10th at 9:12am. He weighed 10 lbs 7 oz and was 21 inches long. Stay tuned for the labor story, it was quite unique!
My parents were in town to help with our 2 girls Ella and Avery, and they brought them up to the hospital to meet their brother. These girls are in love with him!
We chose the name Andrew because it comes from the greek word for “man”. It means manly, masculine, strong. Once we came across this name we couldn’t shake it. This is what we want most of all for our son. That he would represent in every way what was in the heart of God when he envisioned what a man should be. Masculine, leader, protector, bold and courageous, provider, shepherd, respectable, dependable, taking responsibility for family, church and community, hard worker.
As a wife, I believe my husband embodies all of these characteristics and nothing would thrill me more than for little Andrew to grow up to be just like his daddy.
Andrew in the New Testament was also the first disciple to join Jesus. While he was likely unsure of what all of it meant, he demonstrated faith and boldness to step out with his brother Peter as the first ones to say YES to Jesus and give up everything to follow him.
Andrew Gregory, we are praying great things for you as well as your sisters, that you will love Jesus and pursue him with your whole life!
