Here we are (or, erm, were, two weeks ago)!
We're half way to September 30th. On one hand, hooray for being half way done baking this baby! On the other, it is going to be one long, hot summer without margaritas and chilled Sauv Blanc on the deck.
How embarrassing that the stair painting project is STILL not done. This working plus child-rearing thing is really putting a crimp in my productivity around the house. It's too bad I can't kick either job to the curb to free up some time. (Mom, I'm joking...I would totally give you first dibs on Noah.) Maybe by the time I take a 24 week photo that painter's tape will be down. But don't hold your breath.
In other news, we're trying out a name (first and middle) for this baby. Tim is decided on it while I am decidedly NOT decided. If we pick it, and it is THE name, I will share it here. For now, we're keeping mum while I make up my mind. Not to beat this horse to death, but picking a girl's name is painful for me (like ripping off a band-aid painful, not like I tear up at the mention of a specific name or anything). I have a hundred boys' names that I adore and love but girls' names elude me. I LIKE a lot of them. I just can't find The One.
How did you pick your kid(s) names? Did you happen upon one and just KNOW? We knew with Noah and had it decided before he was even conceived. This one though? NO CLUE. (Side note: during that same conversation where we picked out our future son's name we also chose a girl's name...that we then used on the damn DOG. Idiots.)
