What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Rob and I are in agreement: our baby girl's name will be a secret until it is on the birth certificate! However, we have already spent a nice chunk of the morning exploring baby names.

We have discovered that B and H names are out, due to initial issues. Who would want initials BO or HO??? Which is sad, some German names we liked were Brynn and Heidi. I suppose they could be options for middle names. And Engelberta* Overton has a nice ring to it, plus part of Robbie's name!

*any "G" sound in german is a hard G, like glory, unlike german.

100 Days Ago...

I found out I was pregnant! It seems like so long ago, and yet the due date seems so far away. I'm almost to the half-way point, and nothing on my to-do list is done. Ha! Looks like we have some work to do in the next 20 weeks.

An interesting thought: what to wear during labor? I haven't really done much thinking about it, but found this LABOR GOWN that seems super cute! I'm hoping to do a NUCB, and have a doula lined up. Yay for extra labor support! Now for some sleep...

Mein Wunderbar Mann!

I really do have the best husband. Ever. Rob: I appreciate your willingness to help me in the kitchen when I'm stressed, and getting the laundry going, and taking care of the lawn and gutters, and cuddling with the cats. I love that we can watch football together. Thanks for supporting me through my mood swings, and for telling me I'm beautiful (the reinforcement is always nice!). Thanks for being a Man of God and the Spiritual Leader of our household, and praying with me and for me. I love your willingness to serve the kids and youth at LBC.

I think you're going to make a great dad for our kids, and I'm excited to raise them up in the Lord with you!

Movement FELT!!!

After I posted last night, I went to bed. I was laying down, and totally felt KB move!!!! I'm pretty sure I fell asleep smiling. :-)

I just had a kitkat, and KB is going crazy! I'm so glad I know what he/she feels like now. I can't wait until KB is a little bigger, then Rob can feel, too!
