What's in a name?

We are very excited to announce that our little boy has a name! His name will be...


Here's how we came up with it: About 4 1/2 years ago, we were teaching a Sunday School class together at Sagemont Church. There was an adorable little boy in there named Cayden and we both instantly loved that name. From that point on, when we talked about the then hypothetical son that we someday hoped to have, we always referred to him as Cayden. So, when we found out that we were expecting a boy, the first name was obvious. We played with middle names for a while. We finally decided to go with Glenn. It's a family name - it's Collin's middle name, his father's middle name, and his grandfather's middle name. I really wanted Cayden to have a part of Collin's name in his own and this way, Cayden will have a part of all 3 of those amazing men in his name. To be completely honest, it's not our favorite name in the world, and we joke now about how Cayden will probably not like it when he's young, but we love the sentimental meaning behind it. And we feel confident that someday Cayden will appreciate that as well. He has a long line of Godly men to live up to...and in that, we are so honored.
