What’s in a name?

As I’ve made no secret, we’ve been round and round on trying to pick a name for our new little guy! We never could come up with a boy name when we had Ava (before we knew she was a girl), and so this time we didn’t even really discuss names until we knew what the baby was.

We talked and talked and talked names until we were blue in the face. Some of the names that one or both of us liked were Henry, Alex, Thomas, James, Sawyer, and Grant. Oh, and I can’t forget Ava’s personal favorite of Cake! :)

Then last week when we were driving home from St. Louis, we passed a sign with a name on it and Zach threw that name out there. It was one I had suggested before that he had shot down. The more I thought about it, the more it just seemed to fit. Zach didn’t like the first middle name I suggested with it but once we changed it, he was a fan too!

Soooooo…… our baby boy’s name is:

reeds name

Sweet and simple just like I wanted! I can’t wait to meet our sweet Reed! :)


  1. I love that name, so cute! Can't wait to meet him!

  2. LOVE his name!! So cute. I'm so excited for you guys!! :)

  3. Yay! I love it!! So glad baby boy has a name now! ;-)

  4. Love the name! So happy for you and your family!

  5. Very sweet name! Can't wait to see pictures of baby Reed!

  6. LOVE that boy already! Reed will be such a sweet boy! :)

  7. I love it!!

    We are done having kids (at least that's MY plan!) but I told Rob this morning that I want two more and to name them Grant and Grace ;) It's so fun picking names!!
