Name that Baby

Naming a person is a big responsibility. I say this all the time. And maybe that's why it took us so long to choose Sydney's name. We narrowed it down to three names (Sydney, Blair and Natalie) and sat on those names for months. We were leaning toward Sydney Drew the few weeks before her birth, but didn't officially decide until the day she was born.

For some reason, naming our little boy has been so much easier! We came up with a few names we loved, quickly identified a favorite, thought about it for a couple of days and then decided it was the one. Then the decision of whether to keep it to ourselves or not.....and we've decided to do things completely different this time and share ahead of time. I already have a couple of things being made with his name, so now it has to stick:

We're so excited to have it all set, and we're already using silly nicknames like Colony. We can't wait to meet our boy!!


  1. I think it's a great name! And I'm glad you're sharing, because I have a friend who does cute monogramming stuff. ;)
