Baby DiMartino #2 is...

... a boy! We have ultrasound pictures, but they are back home. This is how we shared the news with both of our families. We are very excited for this gift and adventure ahead of us!


Micaiah: Micaiah is very easy to pronounce, just hard to spell. The phonetic spelling would be McKaya. Like McKayla without the 'L'. McDonald's is harder to say :) Anyway, Micaiah is prophet in the Bible. The name means "Who is like Yahweh?" We really like Micaiah's story and even find it funny. Click here to read it. We admire how he singularly stood for the truth and faced imprisonment for it. I once heard a great sermon about him entitled The 401st Prophet and have called him that ever since.

Oliver: Oliver is my maiden name. We chose this name to honor my family.

: "Di" is Italian for "of, from" and "Martino" is allegedly a mountain in Italy from whence the ancestors originate. "Martino" is derived from "Mars," the Roman god of war. Honors Ricky's family.
