Missing baby Zion

Do you ever have those days when you miss someone so much your heart aches? Days when the mere thought of a person almost brings you to tears because all you want is to hold them in your arms and let them know how much you love them? Days when you would give anything to let them know how important they are in your life, how much they matter, and that you never want to be away from them again? Today is one of those days for me. And it’s how I’m feeling about baby Zion. Yep, that’s the name we’ve decided on, Zion Lee Price. I guess that’s how I know that there really is a heaven and that I’ve known our baby before… because I miss him so much. We’ve spent the last 23 years apart, and I can’t wait to hold him again and smother him with kisses!

As for his name, Zion Lee Price, this is why we picked it. Zion’s National Park has always had a very special place in our hearts. After only 5 weeks of dating, Zac and I went on our first vacation together down to Zion’s for the Houtz family reunion. It was on this trip that we decided to get married. We picked out a date and spent the entire weekend dreaming of our future together. Since then we’ve gone back to Zion’s countless times. With our business we haven’t been able to take many vacations, so Zion’s has helped us keep our sanity. It’s such a quick getaway down and back in a day or two, and we love the biking, hiking, canyoneering, and just relaxing while we enjoy the amazing scenery. It truly is one of the most beautiful places in the world. But the main reason we’ve chosen the name Zion is because we love the meaning… Heaven on Earth. It’s so simple but it wraps up all of the thoughts, feelings and realizations that bringing a new life into the world has created for us. As for the middle name Lee, it’s Zac’s middle name, and if there is one thing I pray for, it’s that little Zion will be just like his daddy. Zac is the most amazing guy I have ever known and I hope Zion inherits all of his wonderful qualities.
