Kevin and I didn’t really talk seriously about baby names until we found out the gender of our little one. In the past, we had thrown names out there just messing around, and then when I got pregnant, we joked about various names, but the “serious” convo didn’t happen until the night of our gender reveal. Then from there, her first name was pretty easy.
I have always loved the name Brooke, and I mentioned it before when Kevin and I were talking. Basically, we decided on “Brooke” in less than a minute. Her middle name however, is what has been taking us so long to announce her name. We have gone back and forth about her middle name for the past two months. We thought of two that we really liked, but really didn’t like one more than the other. Finally, last week, we decided on:
Brooke Nicole Clarke
I couldn’t be more excited to finally have her name in place! I love calling her by her name and I can’t wait to have a lot of her stuff monogramed. Speaking of monograms – You may have noticed this gorgeous organic blanket with her name on it from Atkinson Drive. It matches Brooke’s room so perfectly and I can’t wait to swaddle her in it!! It is super soft and comfy. I am planning on using it some of her newborn pictures as well.
Atkinson Drive also makes adorable personalized leggings, headbands, and bibs. Did I mention she is a fellow blogger as well at AtkinsonDrive.com? I have loved following along her blog and social media, especially her Instagram. Make sure to check her out and enter to win a small personalized swaddling blanket of your own below!
