What’s in a Name?

3 Oct

Hey everyone!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I still amazes me how fast the weeks go compared to the week!

I had an ultra busy weekend and seem to be finally kicking my cold!  Yay!  I swear, I only get sick when I fly in September.  Seriously…

Friday, Keith and I rented Bridesmaids and made dinner (monster salad and asparagus ravioli with chicken) after work.  It was a good movie.  I thought it would be a little funnier just because of how talked up it was.  But, overall I really enjoyed it!

Saturday was filled with working out, getting the house in order and running errands.  Before I knew it, it was already the evening.  We grilled burgers and while Keith watched college football, I flipped through some baby book and magazines. 

We lead interesting lives, huh? : )

Sunday,  I decided to start my research on infant car seats and strollers.  Oh man, what a lot of information to sort through!  We ended up deciding on the Britax Chaperone car seat and the Britax B-Ready stroller (I read it has the highest safety rating).  I never knew how much these things cost, but luckily I came across a deal on Target (expires on the 15th).  If you buy the stroller, you get the car seat for free, where do I pay?  If you are a mom to be, check out these products, also they are $100 bucks cheaper on Target than they were on BabiesRUs.  Score me a deal!

This is what we ordered.  I really like the simple black color and they were out of silver.  The only other color was green and I didn’t want that.  I can’t wait for this to come in the mail!  We will probably need to buy an extra base for Keith’s car, but we didn’t order it right away.  It feels so good to have these two items crossed off our baby list!  Next up, we need to order our nursery furniture!  Yay!

While I was busy swooning over car seats and infant things, Keith clean the entire house!  Bless his little heart!  My back has been killing me and he said he wanted to clean for once and take a load of me!  : )  I ❤ my husband!

After Keith was done cleaning, we headed to the gym and then back home to watch the Vikings game.  Unfortunately, they lost again.  Horrible I tell you!  After the pathetic lose, I ran to Target to grab some household items (hello, zip lock bags, hangers and cleaning products).

The rest of the night was spent wasting time and watching the premier of Dexter.  If you haven’t seen this show yet, you must start watching it!  It is so addicting and fun!

So, onto the baby name!!!!!

Keith and I talked about baby names a little bit and had come up with our top two-three favorite names for each gender.

On our boys list we had

  • Luke
  • Finn

Finn ended up beating out Luke for the top spot and we were dead set on naming our little boy Finn (Finley).  We loved the sound of Finn Conrad.  Just a nice strong manly name.

On our girls list we had

  • Gwen
  • Cameryn
  • Estella

We decided against Estella (Stella for short) because I know a lot of people with Stella as their dogs name.  But I really love that name!  I think it is so cute and sweet.

So, we were down to Gwen and Cameryn.

Well, we decided to name our baby daughter,

Cameryn Olivia Conrad

I think I had one guess that was spot on our baby name!  When I read it, I couldn’t believe it!!!  Good job Heather!  🙂

Once we settled on the name Cameryn, we had to figure out how we wanted to spell it.  Here were our three choices

  • Cameron
  • Cameryn
  • Camryn

I love the first spelling but the “o” at the end, was a little masculine and third option was nice, but it just didn’t feel right.  So, Cameryn it was!

We are really excited and I can’t tell you how nice it is to call the baby by her name.  Now, if some of you are thinking she has some funky initials, she does (COC).  We really loved the sound of Cameryn Olivia and our last name just so happens to start with a C.  I don’t ever remember using my initials for anything so I think she’ll be fine.  Hopefully she wont get teased too bad! 🙂

Well, that’s it for me right now!  Tomorrow I’ll have the workout of the week, a new chicken appetizer recipe and my new workout routine along with my workout recap from last week!

Questions:

  • What is your honest opinion of our baby girls name?
  • Have you ever know anyone with the name Cameryn?  If so, boy or girl?
  • Do you have baby names picked out?  If so, what are they for a boy and a girl?

I had Cameryn picked out for years, probably 5-6.  I remember when my sister was pregnant I had it picked out and her daughter is about to turn 4!!!  Some things just stick and I’m so happy Keith loves the name too!
