To be honest this is not a game that Toby and I play very fair. One (or both of us) end up saying something mean about a name and we end up not speaking for a few days. Well, this time around we thought that we would avoid that fight and headed to the doctor's office with a list of three names that we both liked and we would chose one on our way home. We decided to go with names that we both liked; Logan for the first name (Toby's pick) and Shamus for the middle name (My pick).
But after talking to a few friends and saying the name Toby told me that he really didn't like Shamus as the middle name for Logan. HELLO! Are you kidding me?! So I asked to flipping name; Shamus Logan and that was a no go also. So when we got home we went back to the drawing board. We both sat in bed with a pad of paper in between us writing (and scratching out) names. A little after 3 am, a lot of debating and a few hours of not speaking to each other we have officially decided on a name for little man! Ryder Mathis Vincent
The meaning behind the name:
Ryder - (English) Knight or Mounted Warrior
Mathis - (French) Gift of God
(The meaning of the name helped make the decision for me. How can you not think of him as a gift from God?)
