I love the name of your little baby boy. My husband and I just had a baby in July and his name is Evan too. I am so happy for you!
I love the name! I think it’s a great choice. :)
I love the name Evan! Congats on finding it!
One thing I have to mention on having a goal to keep you motivated: you a training for delivering a baby. Every little bit you do now will help with labor and recovery.
You are such an inspiration Roni. when I have kids I hope I can be as good of a mom as you are.
Cynthia (It All Changes)
I love how you came up with the name. Such a family affair even if Ryan forgets he helped :-)
Love the name. My son’s name (Killian) also means “Little Warrior” in Gaelic.
You mentioned what motivates you in terms of exercise is training for the next thing… You’re training for the ultimate endurance competition known to man… labor and delivery!!! Does that help to motivate you? The only time I’ve ever been consistent with exercise was while pregnant because I knew labor and delivery was going to be hard work! :)
I love the name Evan. Had my daughter been a boy her name would have been Evan. My Dad’s name is John, he’s Welsh, and my maiden name is Evans so it was perfect for us.
YAY!!! Love the name (as I mentioned last time!)! :D
When I was pregnant w/ #2, we didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl, so we picked out names for each. We had Izaac picked out for a first name for a boy but could not agree on a middle name (I wanted a bible name). Hubby came home from work one day, walked in the door, looks at me and says “Izaac Jeremiah”. I looked at him and said “That’s it!!!” From then on, that was our boy name…so when #2 was a boy, we were THRILLED! It’s funny b/c we didn’t LOVE our girl name but it was the one we could agree on….I think somehow we knew it would be a boy. So when you both said, yeah that’s the name–reminded me how we picked out our boy name. :) Love the name! And you are still so darn cute!
As far as the exercise goes, think of it this way–you ARE training for something–Labor and Delivery! The ultimate event to train for. If I have a #3, I fully intend to work out as long as humanly possible b/c I know it will help me w/ labor and delivery and recovery. So maybe that will motivate you?? You don’t have to run….walk, ride the bike, boot camp, yoga, pilates–just do what you are comfortable with. Good luck!
I also love the name! I wanted to comment on your comment about not exercising for weight loss, but for the goals you set. I am a big runner, but look at my running time as more for my spirit, mood and my alone time….just that it helps my outlook on the rest of the day. I would consider your motivation to be that you just feel good after burning off some energy!
Love the name!!
Nice name. I like when sibling names sound like the “belong” together. Ryan and Evan – that’s got a nice flow to it.
Love the name and the sweet story behind it!
PS you just look so beautiful!
Evan Robert…Love the name. So cute. :o)
Love the name! Very pretty.
With our son, we had a girl’s name all picked out and set (which we will use should we ever be blessed with a daughter) but no boy’s name. We debated for several days and had several candidates. We realized that our son’s name was our first initials-Connor (C for Courtney) and Glenn for my husband. So, as soon as I said that to my husband, we said “That’s it. That’s the name!” Connor Glenn is almost 2 and 1/2 and the joy of our lives.
Evan is a great name! Congratulations.
I’m mom to Evan Joseph! Congrats.
Love the name!
Congrats on making it more than 1/2 way through. You look fantastic.
Great name! Love it! & you’re still looking wonderful!
I love the name! Ryan and Evan go great. It was me that suggested the idea, my cousin did that so now I suggest it to everyone I know who is having a baby:)
Oh, I love that feeling when “the” name makes itself known. I totally remember with my kids when a name suddenly just felt right. Such fun! I agree with the people commenting before me, you are in training for a marathon of sorts. Perhaps if you researched all the best exercises for preparing for delivery and set up some sort of “training schedule” it would feel more like an official fitness goal to work toward if that might help your motivation. No matter what though, thanks for being such an excellent role model for healthy living! Best wishes to you and Evan!!
I love the name! I even love it more knowing the meaning of it. Congratulations! Love the baby bump…so cute!
woo! i ran that same turkey trot!
We named our oldest Evan Patrick, so I love your choice! He’s 21 now and I’ve always been so glad we picked the name Evan, it’s strong but soft at the same time.
It’s funny that you were thinking of Ethan too, because that is what we named our younger son. People always get the two names mixed up though, because they are very similar. Ryan and Evan sound nice together, but there won’t be the constant confusion.
Our boys are six years apart and it’s been great having the age difference, they get along great.
I LOVE the name Evan. So much! I actually have a cousin named Evan, so I might be a little biased. Congrats on finding the perfect name, and WOW you look amazing. Way to go on your Turkey Trot, too. You are and always will be such an inspiration!
I smiled when you said Evan was the name since that is my fiance’s name. But then I laughed when you said the middle name. He’s Evan Robert too! If yours grows up to be a paramedic, there is something strange going on.
Love the name Evan, I think it is great- and you’re right, when you find a name you really like, you just know- congratulations on the Turkey Trot, you are really inspiring!
Love the name! You are too cute :).
By the way, since you like training for something, Pilates is supposed to be GREAT for labor and delivery. You might consider checking that out.
Yay for Evan!! I had my Evan in February of this year after having a miscarriage in November for 2008. I really wanted to name him Sawyer but my husband wasn’t 100% on that, and then one day he suggested Evan Sawyer and I fell in love with it – He is the sweetest little boy – he is quiet and shy and full of smiles. Evan fits him perfectly :) … His big brother Layton loves him and calls him by his first and middle name – why I have no idea but if you call him Evan he will gladly tell you – no! its Evan Sawyer! lol … Anyways – congrats on picking a great name – I am sure your Evan will be just as sweet as mine :)
Roni! Evan was our ‘boy name’ we landed on too! We are having a girl so that went out the window, although i know a girl named Evan too. So you KNOW I approve, haha! We picked a name last week too! Maya Marie :)
LOVED the name! I’m 19 weeks along and just found out today that we are having a BOY! :) This is our first child. No names yet, so if Ryan wants to help me out, that would be very welcome. :)
I think what your Mom was saying about carry in the back is that your Butt (sorry) is getting larger.
When I had my children the girl I carry all the way around like you and my son was like the football al up front.
Again great name
oh my butt is WAY bigger! lol It’s really the reason I couldn’t fit in my jeans the first trimester.
I’m a mom to Evan Matthew – LOVE the name!
