I never thought I would be so happy to see a little penis as I was last week looking at that sono screen. Jason was so happy and just kept going on and on about football, and training, and trying to reason with me to name him "Champ".
I couldn't resist and had to start getting a few things for my little guy. My son. Wow, that sounds so cool. I love shopping for a boy for a change... although, I still think girls clothes are cuter.
And as far as names go, we haven't decided or really agreed on much. On our short list are the following:
Andrew (if we stuck with A's) but we would call him Drew Colton Collin Caden Jackson "Jack" Kellen Parker Jace Nolan Ryder Peyton Quinn (I really like this as a middle name)
My favorites out of those are Colton & Jackson....
I cannot beleive it, Alyssa is now officially a teenager. We had a very nice day yesterday. We took a little trip to Grove City to let her pick out a few birthday gifts. She picked a couple of pairs of Chuck Taylor's, pj pants, a shirt, and a new bookbag. Then we went to dinner at O'Charley's. She ate more like a teenage boy, then a 90 lb. girl! It was funny, she ate a steak, about a half dozen rolls, a salad, french fries, and chicken fingers... oh, and her free birthday dessert!
This past weekend we finished swapping rooms. Alyssa is now happy in her new cool room, happy because she finalyy has a closet. And Ava is happy because her room is HUGE and she has plenty of room to run and play.
Eventually we will have Ansley joining her in there (that should be interesting) but for now, she is still in her crib for a while.
Friday afternoon we had our first sonogram done of the impending babe... everything looked great and my due date became a little more accurate. January 13th. So we will most likely be looking at a New Years' Baby! We stilll won't find out what we are having for about 6 weeks yet, but we are already going over names.
I had a good time shopping at CVS this week. I have enough nailpolish to last a lifetime, and we made a bunch of really cute photobooks too. They turned out really nice.
Alyssa's birthday is this week, and her party is scheduled for Friday... that can't be over fast enough! Countless teens running around the yard screaming and dancing for hours --- yeah!
I plan on moving all the clutter of the house into the basement and then decluttering it from that point, so maybe I can use this as my accountablity forum. Before & Afters would be a nice touch too. We shall see....
