Here's the deal..



So, Matthew McConaughey just had his first baby boy with his brazilian girlfriend Camila. Now you may ask, "What's the big deal?" Well, the deal is the NAME he chose for his son.
First, if you know Heredes and I, you probably know that if and when we have our first baby boy his name will be Levi ? Ribeiro. This is the same name Matthew M. gave his son.
While reading up on the story, he said that one special gift he will give his son is a passport and that he would like to live in Brazil so baby Levi can learn more about his mommy's culture. Ha! I just laughed because I am married to a Brazilian and I just want our kids to be full of culture. :)
Third, this was just cool. They asked Matthew why he picked the name Levi and here is what he said: "Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person". And then, "Our son was born at 6:22 pm," Matthew goes on to say, "and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in the Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'"
Now here is the cool thing. Yesterday, Heredes read to me the verse he read during his quiet time. Yup, you guessed it- Matthew 6:22. And again he read it and wrote it in his journal today.
With this said, we just got so excited to hear the name and that he went to the Bible- which is so beautiful. So, Heredes and I are stamping the name Levi ? Ribeiro for our future baby boy. [Of course, God knows when that will be and if it will be a boy] I just had to share this because it was so cool!
