Starting to get Anxious!

As the warm weather approaches, I’m starting to get anxious that we’re not as well prepared for this baby as I thought we were!

Since he’ll make his arrival in about eight weeks (I think it will be earlier than that!), we need to get on the ball. We’re turning our guest room into a guest room/ nursery and using the fabulous bedding that I bought when Davis was born. Unfortunately, I still need to get everything out of storage, set up the room, stock up on necessities, buy large items (monitor, pump, infant carrier, swing — the stuff we had has either been given away or isn’t working), and, most importantly: DECIDE ON A NAME!!

Names are difficult! They are so permanent and giving a name to someone is such a big responsibility. They define a person. They can make a child the object of ridicule if we try to get too “cute” or miss an obvious flaw with our first/ middle/ surname combination…

The boys have their first official tee-ball game in the morning. After that, Chad and I are going to spend some time together and try to take care of some of the above. Perhaps we’ll have a name by Monday! Of course, I won’t be sharing it until our little guy is born or else we’ll be changing it again based on everyone’s opinions 😉

Tee-ball was great! We took the golf cart over to the fields and got to catch up with a lot of friends. The boys’ coach is simply wonderful! His name is Berry Hudson and he was so patient and encouraging with the little players. Here are some photos:
