A Name for Baby Boy Knopp

We landed in Fayetteville, NC yesterday morning, excited to see Momsey & Pops and to tell them our big news. We had planned it out perfectly… we were all dressed in blue!
Well, in the picture above, we were all looking a little fresher than I am sure we looked when we landed after flying all night long! We took the picture above once we found out about our new little boy as a belated Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift for my parents.

Reagan, Anna & I all even had our toenails painted bright blue, and I had bright blue fingernails! Now you would think that with all that blue, my parent’s would have immediately clued in that something was going on. Or that they would have asked if we needed “special” help identifying each other while traveling as a group! Nope, in all the excitement of just seeing us, they didn’t pay much attention to what we were wearing.

After a few minutes of hugs and kisses, we collected our luggage and then we made our announcement.

Reagan asked Momsey if she liked her blue dress. Then she asked Momsey if she liked all the blue that everyone else was wearing. We all just stood there, waiting for the moment…

Reagan then said, “We are all wearing blue because Mommy has a boy in her belly.”

My mom stood there speechless, almost dropping Reagan, and she asked Reagan to repeat herself.

“We are all wearing blue because Mommy has a boy in her belly, Momsey!”

Momsey started screaming while hugging Reagan and me, and Pops was fighting back tears as he shook Ryan’s hand. Needless to say, we surprised them for sure! Anna even started crying all over again too!

We had one more surprise to announce, so I then asked Reagan to tell Pops and Momsey what her baby brother’s name is going to be, and she proudly told them…

MYERS TYSON KNOPP

Myers is my maiden name, and Ryan and I made the decision 7 years ago when we got married that since I was giving up my maiden name, our first-born son would be named Myers. This was also the only way that I would be able to carry on the Myers name for our family since I don’t have any brothers myself to take care of that job! Tyson is my husband's middle name, so we thought it would be the perfect middle name for our son as well. We will call him Myers... unless he gets into typical boy kinds of trouble when I am sure his full name will be used!

My mom immediately said that she wished Poppy and Maw Dot, my daddy’s parents, were still alive to hear the news… something tells me they already know and are smiling above!
