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. 💗💗💗

  • Peace ✌🏼 out, Virginia! That’s a wrap on this beautiful chapter of our lives. We are so grateful for this home and the amazing memories we have been able to make. We brought both of these sweet babies home to this house so it is bittersweet. .
I’ve spent my entire life in Virginia but so excited for this new adventure and to be back in Cary’s home state! I can’t put into words how much we will miss our sweet friends that have become family and of course, my parents! But we can’t wait to host you all in our new home!! .

Thank you, VA! 💕💕

  • Packing up a weeks worth of supplements so I can pack all the bottles up for the big move next week. I know people (including my family) probably think I’m a complete whack for how many supplements I take daily but there is a method to the madness. My hope is that filling these little containers and taking good quality supplements daily to support all areas of my body will mean that later in life I’m not having to fill them with medications to stay alive and healthy. We are only given one body and I’m trying my best to keep it as healthy as I can so I’m here for my family longer! I’m curious to know, what supplements do you take daily to support your body?? 🥰

  • Today was Teagan’s last day of preschool in her 2 year old classroom. I’m not sure how the year flew by so fast but I’m even more shocked at how much she has grown and matured since the start of the school year. I wish so badly that I could freeze this age and bottled it up forever. She is such a kind, smart and beautiful girl and I pray she never changes or loses her joyful spirit 🥰 Swipe to see our first day of school picture 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ #teagankendall
  • This view will never get old. Seeing them play and laugh together has been the greatest joy of my life. I know it’ll only get better with time. Life might be chaotic with two young kids but I know without a doubt the greatest gift we could have ever given Teagan is this built in best friend 🥰 we hope everyone has a great weekend ❤️

  • Home of the free because of the brave 🇺🇸 We will never forget that freedom is never free and we enjoy these days with family because of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms. Our hearts are with those families today! ❤️ #memorialday2019 #godblessamerica #freedomisntfree #homeofthefreebecauseofthebrave #teagankendall #toddlermom #terrifictwos #almost3
  • Not the prettiest picture but this is our current reality. It hit us this morning that we only have 2 weekends left here in Virginia. We officially sell this house in a few days. It feels like a dream. I never imagined time moving so quickly. Things have been so busy and chaotic we haven’t really had a chance to even process the emotions that go along with closing a beautiful chapter of life. It’s bittersweet. I feel sad to leave our family and friends. I feel sad thinking Teagan won’t get sleepovers at my parents house. I feel sad we won’t be able to just pop over to a friends for a play date last minute. But I feel so excited to watch Teagan and Beau frolic around in their big backyard and have quality time with their aunt. I feel excited to explore a new city. I feel excited to make new friends and host our old ones in our new home. What a rollercoaster of emotions moving can be. 🌀

  • 8 M O N T H S🌈 I’m not sure how that happened. Still a big massive baby, still the happiest, sweet boy! Crawling around all over the place. Into everything. This month he really became obsessed with Teagan and everything she does. Has 4 teeth up top and 2 on the bottom. I wish I could say he was sleeping through the night but he still wakes up at least once. But I’m releasing myself from stressing over it, babies don’t keep so I’m just going to enjoy the nightly snuggle sessions while they are here. We sure do love you, baby Beau 💙
