bear's birth announcement

hey friends! i just wanted to pop in to share with you bear’s birth announcement. i had so much fun making them! to see where i got my inspiration from, be sure to head over here to meet penny and noah.

if you look closely, the photo will show you that bear was born september 3, 2013 at 10:25 am. he weighed 6lbs 11oz and measured 18.5″ long. he loves forest treasures, woodland animals and cozy blankets. :)

baby names

baby names!

naming our baby. it’s hard work! picking out a name for our son (no, he won’t be called baby roost forever!) has been interesting. it’s been fun, difficult, confusing, exciting and nerve racking. the first name we had chosen for him got shot down pretty quickly from just about everyone we told very early on. (i quickly realized why so many people keep their baby’s name a secret until birth, i think that may be the easiest way to go!) after we decided to drop our initial pick (i think he’ll thank us later), a new name came to mind and we immediately fell in love with it.

the name is rare, though i wouldn’t call it ‘weird’ (you’ve all definitely heard of it, at least). it immediately fit him and everything i already know about him. it feels right. however, it hasn’t been easy deciding to give our son a rare and unique name. we’ve been torn between adhering to social norms and going with our gut feeling. we’ve considered using it as his middle name, a nickname or just dropping it all together, but none of that feels right. it is who he is and at the end of the day we’ve decided to listen to our hearts and do what we know is right for the three of us.

we’ve pretty much kept it a secret beyond immediate family, and we’re excited to announce him (and his name) to the world next week. i love unique names. i think they give immediate character and act almost as a springboard for creativity and independence. though bonnie may not be that unusual, it is a little rare (i say this since i’ve never met another bonnie in my generation, school or profession). having a somewhat rare name has made me who am i today and i’m thankful for it.

since i’ve recently met a few kids named bean, fox, gage and wolf, i think our little man will fit right in with his generation. he has a sweet name. it’s cuddly, snuggly, fierce and manly all at the same time.

beachy finds

when my dear friend amber posted this picture of some starfish she took during her recent visit to the oregon coast, it inspired me to share with you some of my own beachy finds. aren’t these starfishies amazing? i love their colors so much- what a perfect trio!

beachy finds

since we live near the pacific coast now, i’ve found that one of my favorites things to do is stroll along the beach in search of unique finds. we don’t have traditional sea shells on our beaches like i’m used to finding on the east coast, but rather some very interesting shapes and shells. the one above is my absolute favorite (my mom-in-law actually found this one). it’s green on one side, and purple on the other. :)
