All Things Baby Evang

Might As Well Pick A Name Right?

Adam here….

Katy is about 29 weeks into the pregnancy and everything is going great. Doctor visits are very positive and we will start going twice a month next Wednesday. We’ve bought paint for the nursery (seen below). The Water Hyacinth and Lime Foam (it is a soft green but it doesn’t translate too well on the computer but looks good in person).

We also took a trip to IKEA this weekend and got a lot of fabric for Katy to make curtains, recover the cushions on the glider I’m painting and for the crib bumper (again the picture doesn’t do it justice but it looks good in person). We also got a couple little lamps that will go on an end table next to the glider and on the dresser to add just a little light when needed.

Katy has been working really hard on the nursing blanket she is crocheting and it looks really good. After I paint the nursery I’ll be buying some chair rail to separate the colors in the room. The Lime Foam will probably go on the the bottom and the Water Hyacinth will go on the top. We’ll have bright white trim to go with the white crib. We are scouring Craigslist, IKEA, and everywhere else to find and end table and dresser/changing table that we like. I’m hoping to find something new and white or something used that can be easily repainted but still goes well with everything else.

That may be the meat of the post but it isn’t what you came for right? You came to learn what we will be naming our little girl, most likely šŸ˜‰ So…we had our post taking name suggestions from everyone and while we like a lot of what you had to offer, we’ve decided to go with one of our original favorites, Sydney. It is a really cute and I think classy name. We’re are trying it out right now, referring to her as Sydney when we remember to. Next up, we had the middle name. We wanted something uncommon and that obviously fit well with Sydney and Evang. This was a little harder for us because while we had good name options they just didn’t work well together. We did have one first name that Katy really liked but I liked Sydney a lot more, so I had ruled it out. However this past weekend when I threw out Sydney with Bennett they sounds great together and Katy got to use a name she really liked. So we have decided on, for now šŸ˜‰ , Sydney Bennett Evang. We both think it is totally cute and since she’ll be the cutest baby ever she will need a cute name.

So friends, what are you thoughts? Do you guys like it? I hope so because I don’t think we’ll be changing it šŸ˜€

    at first i thought you were using those paint samples for naming ideas. Sydney is a beautiful name, and last week or so there was a beautiful sandstorm color filling the sky in Sydney. perhaps there will be a paint named after it, too… anyway I miss you guys!
