35 weeks! ~ grateful daily

Wahoo!…5 weeks left to go. We’re currently in a frenzy of baby name hunting and while my Dad has a penchant for those long 6 syllable trip-over-your-tongue names, Shawn and I would like to keep it short and sweet. I’m open to any suggestions (except ‘Julie’ which is Great-gram-Panosian’s poodles’ name and a particular favorite of Raveen’s or ‘Ariel’ which is because he just saw the Little Mermaid)

Also took another maternity self-portrait but this time I didn’t even attempt to peek around the camera. Hormones have so overtaken my face that I’ve broken into spots, and while spots are thrilling fun if I want to play connect the dots, they’re not very good for my vanity! I wanted to draw a happy face on my belly with the nose being my almost-outie belly-button, and take a picture but the kids don’t think that would be ‘very modest’ (sheesh, my moral police!) so you’ll have to just imagine it. Here I am…and it’s my latest grateful post.

on a side-note…
This 100% wool yarn from Japan is a feast for your eyes. Had to take a picture. Don’t know what I’m knitting yet, just…knitting. Had to share it.

Edward and Gretchen - Yes, you do look quite amazing!!!

How about Arianna? It means “holy one”.
I know, it has 4 syllables, not exactly short, but thought I’d throw it out anyways. I read the name in a history book I was reading to my kids today and I thought the name was strikingly beautiful.

Hmmm, I’ll try to think of a short cute name too and send my suggestion your way.

Edward and Gretchen - Got it! “Ada”, It means “first daughter” in African, specifically East Nigeria. It is also a Biblical name meaning “one of noble sort”.
