Proof of Life

Ok, so I know that I haven't posted in like forever and a day. We have had some computer problems, so we went several weeks without any internet at all. Now we are using a borrowed computer while our computer is being fixed. I am also having a rough pregnancy(physically), very tired, and very busy. The three of these things combined make it next to impossible to blog. Even though I don't have time to write much I felt that the least I owed you was to let you know that I'm alive....oh, and we decided on a name. Kellen Beck Carlin. He will probably mostly go by Kale I know what you are thinking Kellen and Kale, what's the connection?? So here is your explanation:

We love the name Kale, but I kinda have this thing against one syllable first names. It isn't that I don't like them, it's that they don't go with the flow of our other children's names(Lucas, Raylen, Treyson). So, before we even came close of picking a name we knew that it was going to be a two syllable one. We talked about name after name, but Kale was the one that we kept coming back to. We tired to elongate that to a longer name and came up with Kallen. Buuuuut, that spelling would be mispronounced and it also looked kinda girly to me. Hence the name Kellen. We love both Kellen and Kale so I'm sure we will call him both, kind of like we do with Raylen(Ray) and Treyson(Tres). Not that you care about that whole story behind the name. I just thought that I'd explain it just in case any one got confused.

So, you got the name, the explanation behind the name, and assurance that I am still alive and haven't given up on blogging or Treyson's Purpose. Since I have broken my blogging silence I'm sure that I will be more motivated to post more often.

Now, if I could just finish painting the baby's room....

Cool name! I have a friend whose older brother is named Cale. So, where did the Beck part come from?

Micah said...

Kellen. Kale.
Sara. Sadie.
I don't see the problem.


I love both names. Shorten Kellen with our texas drawl and it'll sound just like Kale if ya ask me. ;o)
