Baby Name

We've spent lots of time talking about names...but I think we may have a winner. Mackenzie Paige. Who, by the way, is doing acrobats in my stomach in as I type.


I had an appointment with Dr. Nguyen on Friday. Originally they put me in the room without the ultrasound machine. I tried to squash my disappointment since I knew I was having the big ultrasound on Monday. However when Dr. Nguyen came into the room, he suggested we do an ultrasound and said he'd look for gender if I wanted to know- YES! So after seeing the heartbeat, Dr. N started looking around. Of course the baby was sitting Indian-style on her bottom...he finally got her to move and said he was 85% sure it was girl.
The ultrasound on Monday confirmed that. I picked up Landon from school and met Bryan over at the Women's UTMB offices. We got to see lots of the baby...she even yawned for us while we were looking at her face. Saw cute little hands and feet. And the doctor pointed out the "girl" parts.
Landon and I went over to Target after the appointment and Landon picked out an outfit for his ladybugs onesies, pants and some headbands. (And he picked out a ball for himself.)

It's a....

We have several projects going on around the house (and none of them include cleaning.) For Valentine's, Bryan is making me a magnetic chalkboard in the game room. Its still in progress. Meanwhile, we painted the baby's room (light beige) and rearranged the furniture in there so a crib would fit. I've been working on some sewing projects. I made a blanket (like grandma used to make) for the newest baby, Cora Leigh. It turned out great, and I bought enough materials to make the same one for our baby.

I'm also halfway finished with a new bed skirt for the twin bed in the baby's room. It's darling. We bought the Circo Nature & Love bedding from target - it has OWLS!

Love it. It is perfect, PERFECT for my little girl. I also bought material to make a bed skirt for the crib...but haven't started that yet. And I'm thinking about recovering the glider we bought when I was pregnant with Landon. Who knows if I'll get around to all of that. Also - I want to paint a few trees (match the bedding) on the walls.
