Name help please!

Tag: baby2,GeneralEmily @ 9:05 pm

We are feeling pretty stuck. Sean’s name came to us so easily, and we really love how we used names from family members (Big Sean and Brian’s middle name – Andrew). We would like to be able to do another name made from names of family, but we are having a hard time coming up with good girl names. Please put on your thinking cap and ‘comment’ to us some names of women in our family that may have good names for this little girl! We don’t need full names (first and middle) necessarily, we can put that together later, but any help would be great.

Some of the names that have made it on to our “potential names” list include:

Marie (middle name only) – Paul’s sister Megan’s name (Megan-Marie)
Lillian (first name) – I think this was Lary (Paul’s dad’s) grandmother’s name??
Page/Paige (middle name only) – Narni’s (Paul’s mom) middle name
Claira (first name) – another grand or great grandmother…but can’t remember now from where…
Catherine (middle name) – Cate’s (my sister) middle name

We need more to choose from! Come on family, please help!!

It’s a girl!!

Here are some ultrasound pictures from Tuesday. Our next little one will be a girl!! We are super excited (and admittedly kind of scared), but happy none the less. Little Sean has been talking about getting a little sister when we ask him, and he says it’s name will be “baby boy.” Hmm…guess we’ll have to work on that one.

New rooms!

Tag: baby2,GeneralEmily @ 7:43 pm

We’ve been hard at work lately trying to transform the rooms on the 2nd floor. We had a really fun time making Sean’s room a big boy room a few weeks ago. It’s Thomas land now, and he loves it. He finally has toys in there now, and really loves laying on his floor playing with all his toys. He’s even good at cleaning up!

Of course, there’s some pictures of his favorite thing…running around in his underpants. These were too cute not to post!

I spent the day today swapping the office/guest room and the baby room. We were orginally going to put the baby in the office, but Paul suggested making the guest room into the baby room. It’s a little bigger than the office, and the office is the only room with a cable/internet hookup upstairs, so we’d have to do some major changes to re-run those wires. I put all the baby furniture in the room today and it looks great. It really is making the fact that a new baby is on the way even more real! Only 2 more weeks, then we can pick out bedding, decorations, etc, for either a baby boy or girl!! Sean doesn’t like the room; he says the baby cant’ sleep in his crib or use his chair. 🙂
