I pushed. He came out. We stayed in the hospital. Now our family of 3 has officially survived our first 8 hours at home. While our little bundle of joy is sleeping peacefully, I thought I’d post a picture or two and the meaning of his name. A lot of people have asked how we came up with August Thacker.
Our next post will share his “birth story”.
I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Marine City, MI. The farm was established by August Wissman who came from Germany to America 161 years ago. The land August farmed is where I grew up and the same farm my dad farms today. August Wissman is a family legend.
Chris’ mom’s maiden name is Thacker.
That one is pretty obvious.
There you have it. August Thacker Bohle. A name with a lot of family history and meaning. Along with August, we plan to call him Auggie. The verdict is still out if we will spell it Auggie or Augie.
Just moments after birth!
