A Name

Naming our baby boy was no easy feat. Coming up with a list of favorite names is really easy. But then  to picture that name on the face you've envisioned and a personality you don't even know yet makes the whole process impossible. And then there's the husband who shuts down every. single. suggestion. you come up with. ;) I tried not to stress too much about the whole naming process. I mean, we had awhile to decide and eventually something perfect was going to come up, right? Indeed it did. I don't remember exactly how Owen came to my head, but it was one of the only names that made Matt stop and think for a second (rather than his "ehh" response to everything else). The more I played with Owen in my head the more I saw this sweet baby's face and I just knew that we had to name him Owen. It just felt like this was his name. I wasn't prodding Matt to tell me whether he liked it or not and I tried to not be too pushy about how much I liked it because I wanted him to decide on his own. So when he brought it up on his own one evening a couple weeks later and said that he loved the name Owen I definitely cried a little bit. I'm even more anxious to see this baby's face. And that, in a nutshell, is how we came to name our son Owen Matthew.
