We Have A Name!!!!

We Have A Name.....
Let me introduce our baby boy! Magnus Ryan Lu Shu Schlenner!! Born 3/24/2010 in Chengdu City, China!!! He is cute as a button, isn't he?!!?!?!?!?!?!??!

Much thought went into this name because names are very important and this baby needed a very important name!! We wanted a name that was masculine with no hint of PINKNESS or remotely close to our girly girl house. Ryan's name means "little King." We wanted a name that was similar to the caliber of "little King." I've had the name picked out for many years. The girls and I fell in love with the name Magnus and swayed Ryan into liking it! Or he just got tired of referring to his son as "China baby."

Magnus, means "the Great!" Lu Shu is his Chinese name. Lu means, "boy" and Shu means "tiger," because he was born in 2010 in the Year of the Tiger. So we are naming our baby boy Magnus Ryan Lu Shu, which means The Great Little King Boy Born in the Year of the Tiger! Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is his referral file that we received late Thursday evening around 10:45 p.m. via email. I still can't believe it happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so unbelievably thankful...we have FOUR amazing, beautiful, healthy, loving children.
Baby Magnus has many many MANY layers upon layers of clothing in these pictures. China believes in keeping the babies very bundled up!!!

That's our baby! We're tickled..........BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely BLUE!!!!!!
