another week off

Dust is taking next week off from work because his parents will be staying with us. Dust will turn 29 for the first time this Sunday. : ) Happy Birthday Dust! It will be nice to have him around.

I have been cleaning the house in preparation for Dust's parents visit. Cleaning is much more tolerable when I am listening to my i-pod. Hopefully NJ's nap will last long enough today and tomorrow so I can get stuff done. Better get back to work.

it's a surprise

Dust and I have officially decided on a name for our baby girl. But, we are keeping it a surprise! Sorry to dissapoint anyone. I know we told everyone NJ's name, but I want to build up some anticipation. It seems like there are quite a few people at our church that keeps the baby's name a secret until it is born.

I do enjoy going through the book of baby names. I was surprised at some of the meanings of names. There were some meanings that turned me off from the name entirely. Take Emily, for example, it means flatterer. Being a flatterer isn't a positive thing as far as I'm concerned.

Stay tuned until November when the name will be revealed at the baby's birth. : )

It's a girl!!

Most of you know already that we are having a baby girl! I e-mailed most everybody yesterday when we found out. I am so excited! I feel really blessed to have one boy and one girl now.

There are so many cute baby girl clothes now. I have been looking at girl nursery room colors for crib bedding. Now we can focus on girl names now.

Today is Nathan's 2nd birthday! My little man had a Diego birthday party for lunch. His Aunt Carissa has been here to help celebrate. He was spoiled in the present department. He is taking his nap now and later we will probably go to the pool.

Happy Birthday Nathan!
