We've finally decided

So, I never thought that I would leave the hospital without giving my child a name, but that is what happened this time. Luckily with Kaiser they will give you two days after you go home to call them back with a name, or we may have well ended with with the name "Boy Bruschke" on the birth certificate. We have always struggled to name our children, but this time it was especially hard with the whole "family dilema" that we had with the name we felt was right (see our post from Sept. 20 if you don't know what I am talking about). We woke up monday morning needing to pick a name by 11:00. We kind of avoided talking about it until we got in the car to go to a 10:15 doctors appointment. Only 45 minutes to go until our little one was going to be "Boy Bruschke". I pulled out my cell phone to make the call and told Brett that we were going to name him "Benson Douglas Bruschke". He stopped me and told me it wasn't right to do and so we both sat in silence until just before arriving to the doctors trying to brainstorm another name. Our time was running short. Brett threw out a name (one that he had turned me down on in the past) and asked me if I thought it fit our little boy. We both decided that it would work, so with just minutes to spare we called up the hospital to let them know that our sons name would be. . .
. . .Tanner Douglas Bruschke.
