- Wedding: April 2007
Just a little countdown update 🙂 Time is flying now. Especially since I’ll be out of town 3 of the next 4 weekends and the one I’m in town for is my shower and we’ll have Out of Town guests! August will be here in a blink.
Got a call last night that our crib is in! Now I just have to finish cleaning out the nursery and drive an hour to get the crib so we can REALLY start nesting 🙂 Perfect timing with the shower being next weekend so hopefully we’ll have some ‘stuff’ to go in the nursery! Plus I’m heading to Ikea when I’m ‘home’ this weekend to pick up shelves and other nicknacks for organizing the closet. I havne’t really been stressing that we have done NOTHING – but I’m really excited to get the nursery set up!
ALSO – biggest news…. I fell in love with a boy name yesterday. FINALLY. Bonus – the hubby has approved! We’ve had ‘Alta Paisley‘ picked out for a girl for MONTHS. We had a couple maybes for boys – but nothing I’d FALLEN for like I did for Paisley. Until yesterday when I found Ryker. Not only does it feel ‘all boy’ which I like… but it’s apparently a nickname for Richard and shares the same base ‘ric’ meaning ‘powerful leader’. (According to one site :)) My dad’s name was Richard Wayne and I’ve really wanted to use some part of this to honor him as he passed away 6 years ago from cancer. I was thinking Wayne for a middle name and the hubby was having absolutely no part in that. So this way we have a fun unique (pronouncable) name that I’ll know also honors my daddy 🙂 Now all we need is a middle (or first) name and we’re set!
I’m not sharing with any IRL friends – but I just can’t keep my names totally secret 🙂 I love them and can’t wait to find out if I have a little Paisley or Ryker kicking me all day long!
PS. As far as the ‘pregnancy’ goes. Entering month 8 and I definitely have to pee “ALL” the time. Even if I just went! Luckily I can sleep through this and only get up twcie a night. The baby is taking up more and more room making things a little bit uncomfortable – only painful when it’s rib pain which has been in my back lately. I have to be careful to eat smaller portions too as the heartburn is starting to creep back in. Otherwise feeling AOK!
