i've officially hit my third trimester stride and what i've been able to accomplish in these last few days is nothing short of amazing...or a miracle. either way i'm feeling unstoppable. (this must be how all of those marathon-running super-moms feel in their normal non-pregnant lives. hmm. must be nice.)
i've headed 2 trips to purgatory, i mean ikea, a few home depot stops, about a dozen visits to target, ingested a decent amount of fetus friendly caffeine (my doctor says so), and our little thousand square foot home is functioning at the top of it's game and fully baby ready. along with a little something pretty...because instilling an early appreciation for the art of embroidery in all of my children is of the utmost priority.
after this week i'm sort of feeling semi-ready for the new addition our home's anticipating. now we just need to finally decide on her name. which after spinning this song, if baby girl turned out to be baby boy, i'm fairly certain he'd be baby james. weird how a song can entirely change your opinion of a name with only a few listens.
the name we have been throwing around for her is jonah. jonah mae. or as owen would say, "the mad guy who lives in the fish." -- i'm not really one to keep the possible names of our unborn a secret (surprised? don't be.), i'd rather everyone around us have time to get used to the name before it's actually official. that way the aghast reactions sting a lot less.
