“Going ahead and telling the world our sweet babies name because i would rather y’all hear it from me and christian then things going around,” Sadie began her Instagram caption. “This little girl and her name already mean the world to us.”
The 23-year-old shared a photo of a bassinet with a teddy bear inside, wearing a knitted sweater that read, “HONEY.”
“Honey James Huff,” she wrote, followed by Proverbs 16:24.
“Gracious words are like HONEY, sweetness to the soul and health to the body,” she wrote, adding, “I’ve always loved this verse. Its made me have a love for the idea of all that honey is. It’s a sweet delicacy with a strong healing component.”
Sadie also explained how the word has been a constant in her and husband Christian’s relationship writing, “When Christian and I started dating we went through the book of Proverbs together and I remember getting to chapter 16 and as I read verse 24 i said to him, ‘you have words like honey. they are so sweet and are healing places in my heart I didn’t even know needed to be healed.'”
“On our first date we went to do pottery together and on my cup i simply wrote ‘honey’ because i called him the boy with the honey words,” she continued. “Fast forward 2 and a half years later and we have a daughter on the way who we so proudly get to name after one of the loveliest words. Not to mention this word reminds me of my great grandma who calls everyone she loves honey.”
Along with the first photo, Sadie shared a photo of her and Christian on that first date, holding her mug that read, “honey.”
The soon-to-be mom gushed, “Oh Honey, you are named with such intention.”
“I pray over you all the time that you would be sweet and strong and you know what? I already know it that you are,” she continued. “Those words will be your super power in life. We can’t wait to meet you and see your story unfold before our eyes.”
After revealing her daughter’s sweet name, and the meaning behind it, Sadie’s family took to the comments with love and support for the baby girl.
Rebecca Robertson added, “Aww I remember when that second picture was taken! Y’all are going to be great parents.”
