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. 💗💗💗

what do you think?

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Toss in bowl with avocado oil, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder, toss again
Lay face down on pan

  • Happy 6 months my sweet, happy boy. We missed our 5 month update and over a week late on this one but I couldn’t let 6 months pass us by. Beau is literally a dream. He is so content to just be with everyone and be along for the ride. He’s always smiling and laughing. He is such a joyful little boy and I hope he never loses that. He weighed in at 21lbs 7oz (bigger than Teagan at 12 months 🤪) and 28.5in. My big linebacker! He got his first two teeth at about 4.5 months and haven’t seen any new ones since. Today he tried solids for the first time and I wouldn’t say he was a fan! He’s sleeping better but there is always room for improvement there 🤪 this month is when we really noticed him taking notice in Teagan and he is just in awe of her. It’s pretty much the sweetest thing ever. We love you so much our sweet Beau Beau! .

  • When we first started the process of ditching and switching I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. We decided to switch all our baby products, laundry and then it just made sense to do our cleaning products. When I started researching I found that many of the generic cleaners contain ​Phthalates​ which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens.
.
Thieves cleaner does NOT contain those big bad Phthalates. Instead of Phthalates, Thieves Cleaner by Young Living contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. These all-natural and safe sulfates that are considered surfactants, which contain a molecule that loves water and a molecule that hates water. That means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface and grabs the oil and then washes away easily with water.
.
There is also no warning that says “call poison control if ingested” so there’s that! #knowbetterdobetter #plantpower
