Equally exciting as all of Eva's news is the progress on our baby boy.
I am 26 weeks now and still a rather uneventful but wonderful pregnancy. I have been more physically tired this time but crawling around with a 9 month old, working, strolling, diaper changes are a little more difficult when you're packing an extra 15 pounds! But cant really complain. At least this time I can brush it off and know that a little leg numbness, soreness and back aches are all worth it when they arrive.
I go back to the doctor tomorrow and will let you know if anything changes from the above but the fun stuff is really what this post is all about.
We made BIG progress this weekend on moving within our own house. The guest room is officially moved to upstairs and affectionately now known as the guest suite. The bonus room upstairs that Jon once envisioned as a game room/man room is now ready for anyone who wants to come stay with us full equipped with luxe accomdations such as your own second floor room with a private full bath, high thread count bedding, 42" LCD TV, Playstation 3, all the reading and picture perusing you could want.
Now munchkin #2's room is ready to begin painting and filling. I met with our wonderful designer, Myra Graves last week and decided on color schemes and the vision for the room so I'll post more as that comes together but think browns, creams and teals! Painting is next so as you can see the room is cleared and ready to be a darker shade of brown, probably like a chocolate brown. I hung up the clothes I have bought and received to begin filling the closet, folded blankets and pjs until we find a dresser and took inventory of what all we need- which thankfully isnt as much as we thought. Its really starting to come together which is so exciting for two very Type A planner parents!
I know you all have been awaiting an update on what we have decided to name him and I can confidently say Jon and I have 100% decided on his name.
However, much differently than last time with Eva we have decided to keep his name a secret!! Naming a boy has been a much bigger task that either of us expected and so when we were in St. Louis, with our minds cleared and time to actually discuss, make lists, etc it came to us! We came home and thanks to the McKinneys for loading us up with books we dug through ever possible boy name we could, make top 10, top 5 lists narrowed it down to make sure were thinking of everything, everyone, every name and was thrilled to realize we liked the same name we left Missouri with.
The only clue we're giving people is that his initials are K.J.W.
Knock yourself out guessing but we're not telling! Good news is because it took us so long to decide, you'll fortunately only have to wait a little less than 14 weeks to find out!
We've come along way with this little man and are over the moon excited to bring him into our family and grow to love him more and more everyday!
