Some of our Favorite Baby Names

I will start by saying that these have changed so much over time and I’m sure they will continue to change until we find that name that just fits perfectly for our little babe. I am also going to say that a lot of these names are common and it’s impossible to find an original name these days. I’m not the type that cares if someone picks the same name I like. I feel like people only get mad if they said the name first, but we have to remember that just because someone says it first doesn’t mean we have to love it any less. These names are in no particular order, just random. I’m only going to give 5 of each.

 

Girls

 

Mackenize- I honeslty don’t know why I love this name. I just think it’s really pretty and I love the nickname Kenzie, while Cary likes the nickname Mack. Soooo that’s a struggle.

Peyton- I love unisex names. I just think they are cool and unique and I love the way Peyton Gaskell sounds!

Rowan- I know many will say this is more of a boy name, but I love it as a girl name. I just imagine my little Ro Ro running around!! Plus I love a good Irish name. After all, that’s why we picked Teagan!

Charlotte- This is super popular which is what makes me not like it  as much as some of the others but I just think it’s so beautiful, classic and feminine. Cary loves the nickname, “Charlie”.

Everly- This is another one I don’t know why I love but I remember hearing it a few years ago and just loving it. Another beautiful, feminine name.

 

Boys

 

Beau/Bowen- Cary and I both love this name. I just think it’s a great, strong, manly name. Not much else to why, no special story. We just love it.

Hunter- This is somewhat of a family name on my side. My parents tried for a few years to have another child but my mom started going through menopause in her mid to late thirties so she had several miscarriages. If they ever had a boy, they said his name would have been Hunter and I think that’s something really special to honor.

Declan- This is more of my pick. I love it again because it’s an Irish name. It means “man of prayer” or “full of goodness” and I think that is what I would want a son to be.

Owen- This is a Cary pick but I actually love it. I think it’s such a sweet little boy name but also a great man name too!

Colt/Tripp- These are both Cary picks that can’t decide which he likes better. He loves the name Colt from the Three Ninjas movie haha! I think it’s cute and southern sounding name. Cary is a Texan by way of Louisiana so it just seems right to have a southern name. And he has no idea why he likes Tripp besides the fact that it sounds “cool”.

    I can think of another reason that you love the name Kenzie 😉 lol Declan is my pick for a boy too, but Matt isn’t sold, so I hope that’s what y’all end up picking! I love it for the same reasons that you do! I’m so excited for this little nugget no matter what *his* name will be. 💗💗💗

  • Always get family pictures done. Even when you are in the season of life where your toddler won’t cooperate without being swung or eating a cake pop. Even when you have to wear a poncho because you are self conscious of your postpartum mom bod. Even when your baby is still in the stage where most of his facial expressions look like he needs to poop. Always get family pictures done because this is the season of life that goes by way too fast. 💕

  • This little girl challenges me to my core every single day. Her strong-willed attitude is both something I love about her but it also causes a lot of stress. But through it all, she is by far the sweetest, kindest, and most compassionate little kid I know and I couldn’t ask for more. 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • T W O Months 💙 I can’t believe it’s been over two months with this big guy! His colic seems to be coming to an end and his reflux is under control. He’s rolled over way too many times, smiles and coos all the time and pretty much just steals my heart daily with all his cuddles. He weighed in at 16lbs 5.5 oz and 25in long 😱 His pediatrician literally told me she’s never seen weight gain like that from month 1 to 2 so it’s been confirmed...Beau is in fact a milk monster and I am in fact a 🐮🐄 #twomonthsold #rainbowbaby #beaumontgomeryg
  • Grateful. Thankful. And Blessed. Those words just don’t seem like enough for what I feel when I see this sweet family of mine. No doubt that this is God’s work. 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🦃 What are YOU thankful for? 💕💙
