Hi.

I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to three kids- Dylan Archer, Kyler Jude and Noelle Rose. I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.  

The Story Of Her Name

The Story Of Her Name

When my husband and I were dating, the topic of kids naturally came up. To my delight, Justin told me he wanted 3 kids [I wanted at least two, four max]. He also told me that if we had a girl, he would love it if we called her Noelle. My initial thought was the name was very pretty, all the Noelles I knew were kind so there were no negative associations BUT... was it too โ€œChristmasey?โ€ ๐ŸŽ„

Fast forward in time and we have two winter babies- both boys. We thought weโ€™d have a third shot at a winter baby, but God had other plans and so it turned out our rainbow baby would be a summer one. Initially I shelved the name for that reason. Also, I was 100% convinced we were having another boy and dreaming of all things baby boy.

Throughout my pregnancy I was wracking my brain to come up with the perfect masculine moniker... Justin would offer his input, but would always say, โ€œWe wonโ€™t be using that name as weโ€™re having a girl and her name is Noelle.โ€

The morning of August 11 arrives and to my surprise I hear the words โ€œItโ€™s a girl.โ€ ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ€ And it clicked. It wasnโ€™t Christmas, but here was our girl, the perfect gift from above who tied the bow on our family. โœจ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ #missnoellerose
