Naming our kids {Allyson}

After we had Aubrey we had begun to discuss having more kids and began throwing more names around. Perhaps we learned the first time around we didn't agree as much a we thought we would.

In March 2010 we found out I was pregnant. We had it narrowed down to Allyson for our girl name and Aiden for a boy. On June 21st, 2010 we found out that we were going to be welcoming Miss Allyson into our family. I *swear* that Conrad and I had talked about middle names because I had in my head her name was going to be Allyson Kate. I called her that forever!

It wasn't until a week or so before my due date. Conrad was at work and texted me that he didn't really like the middle name Kate. Whoa?? What? I was so mad. He let me call this baby Allyson Kate for MONTHS. I told everyone that was her name. Now he wanted me to change it? I was so mad at him. So I googled some middle names that went with Allyson and text him that list. I was hoping that he would text back that none of those really sounded right and we would stick with Kate. Within seconds, he texted me back that Grace was absolutely perfect. At that point, I didn't think he was serious so I  continued to think it would be Kate.

D-day had arrived and once our little girl made her appearance, we went with Grace. I did tease him that I sign the birth certifiate and he better double check to make sure I write the correct name.

Two and half year later, Grace fits her. I am glad that we went with it.
