His name is Brogan John Wilson. I don't think many people really are keen on his name, but we love it and all who know him can't think of him as anyone else. It means 'sturdy' and 'stubborn' and 'strong'... it's an Irish word also for a 'sturdy shoe'! haha ah well.. it's a very masculine, strong name and it's unusual without being hippy. So to name our son after a shoe is okay, but to name him after the Vancouver tattoo artist that my bestest girlfriend got her amazing tattoo from when I was having Brogan put back into my uterus is too hippy? Sigh. I love loving a masculine northern man. ;) BTW the tattoo's artist name was Coen. Cool, too, huh? I like Brogan better - don't tell Dave!
He has golden red hair. I love that the most... it's gorgeous hair! I know there are people out there who think 'ginger' kids are ugly, but they can go fly a kite off a cliff as far as I'm concerned. For every ignorant person out there we have 50 who exclaim they love his hair colour and think he's GORGEOUS. In fact, his hair is the first thing people complement him on. I am astounded at how ignorant some people are with this whole redheaded thing. Some of the most beautiful people in the world have red hair. I am rather thankful that he tends to have dark skin, because although I love being a redhead myself, I don't like having pale skin... too much of a pain in the ass when it comes to sunshine - or tanning of any kind.
Here's our amazingly perfect, wonderful baby boy. We are SO in love.
