a name…

i have been trying to find a moment all day to share the name we chose for our baby boy here on the blog. but it’s also been hard to find the motivation to do anything besides snuggle with my family in bed lately. :) but here it is, at last! we are so in love with our little samson rex. the last few days have been incredibly exhausting, but without a doubt some of the best days of my life.
i’ll share more soon, but i’m off to go cuddle with my littles again. i have some sweet guest posts in store for the blog over the next little while. they are so good and i have a feeling you will love them. also, i want to say thank you for all the support and love you have shown as we’ve welcomed samson rex to the world! it’s fun to share it all with you… thank you again!

    hey samson!

  6. Such a great name! xo.

  7. i love the name! congratulations!

  8. Of course Samson is a biblical name and Rex is such a strong name, but did Regina have any influence in the name? "Samson" and "Oedipus" are a couple of my favorite songs by her and the second I saw his name I thought of her.

    Anyway, you two make the most beautiful children and Samson Rex is a wonderful name. He is such a handsome boy already.
