I can’t believe that at this time next week I will be saying that we are under 10 weeks left until our beautiful baby girl is expected to come! Today we are sitting on 10 weeks and 4 days and although that seems like an eternity, I can definitely say that it’s going to be here so quickly. Every day that passes seems to go quicker, well for me at least because I can’t speak for Kate! I know that her back is beginning to hurt a little more now and that she is not getting full nights rest anymore. To be honest I am not really getting full night’s rest either. I am not sure if its due to the baby coming or my unemployment situation, but either way I have had a hard time sleeping. I guess that will help for when the baby is born and needs to be tended to.
It’s becoming a real possibility that I may not have a job when baby girl comes and I would not be upset by that. It would save us money on Jacob and infant daycare and I would get to spend a ton of time with both of my children. Don’t get me wrong, I need to work and that is my number one objective, but to be honest if I don’t have a job by the time she is born, that search may take a back seat for a couple months. Is that bad? I don’t think so. I mean maybe Kate can start making triple her current salary and then I could be a stay at home dad. I’d be pretty awesome! I mean I would have the cooking and cleaning down because it would be about four months of doing it, I’d just have to add a baby and a 4 year old. Ok, that was a scary sentence.
Jacob is getting excited for his sister, he keeps saying “my sister is coming soon!”, that reminds me we still need to sign him up for big brother class. I guess that is something I will do prior to next week.
So let’s talk names here. I have had people agree with the idea that we are not going to share the name with everyone until the baby is born. I have also had people that think we should share the name because if they have any issues with the name and actually say they don’t like aren’t the people that are going to be around her that often any way. Well, I see both sides and while we are still thinking we are going to keep the name a secret, I will share that we are now up to two names that we really like. We want to pick the name soon so we can get her Christmas stocking this year in case she comes for Christmas. I know what you are all thinking, even if she is here she won’t know she doesn’t have a stocking, but guess what? I love Christmas and I want her to be able to share our traditions as soon as she can!
So here is the deal, send me your name ideas either in the comment section or through Twitter @debo2pt, I would love to hear them. If there are any names that are in a bunch I will be sure to share them with everyone. ***Disclaimer: Just because you send a name in or I use the name in a post does not mean we will use it. I just want to hear your ideas***
