{March 25, 2011}   Names

We used our good boy name. But. I think I’ve found another one. At the risk of being totally cliche and hokey, I like the name Embry Holden. (Yes, like Embry from the Twilight series. Like I said. Cliche.) I also like Emilie Genevieve (pronounced in French jon-vee-ev) but can you imagine the misspellings and butcherings? Quelle horreur! (It’s been a loooooooong time since French class, please forgive me if that’s not the right spelling. I’m sure you get the gist.) And another thing. If all this pukiness denotes girly parts, she better show up with sparkles and ribbons, is all I’m saying. I feel like pooooooo. Big, stinky trashcans full of poooooooo. Just thought you’d like to know. I live on crackers at work, and praying my energy level comes back soon.

{March 20, 2011}   I’ve spawned a daredevil.

That is all. We went to the park for the first time yesterday and played on the swings and the slide. Fletcher had a ball! Grinning the whole time and giggling. He tried to go up the slide backwards, and when I let go of him for a second, he pushed off and was sliding down all by himself! My child’s not afraid of anything!! I see roller coasters in our future, what do you think? I held him up high in the swing and let him go, and he screamed and giggled the whole time, and even started to pump his little legs trying to make it go faster! I think the park was a hit, you? Pics to follow, I haven’t gotten around to emailing them yet!

I’m officially 8 weeks, today. I’m due 10/11/11, incidentally my nephew’s birthday. My next appointment is on March 29, but I’ll be going to see the perinatologist sometime in between. Heart rate was 161, and I saw cranium and feet and arm buds. So. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
