Another A!

So, I haven't blogged in awhile and I do have a TON to update y'all on...let's start with the most exciting news of this year (or perhaps last year since that's when we found out) -- baby number FOUR is coming and I'm due on my Mom's XX birthday!!

I've kept it quiet for awhile, told a few people, told a few more, let it out a couple weeks ago to most other people and now...well, its time to post about it on the blog.

Here is a photo from last week (15 weeks pregnant).

We don't know (yet) whether this will be a boy or a girl - all we do know is we feel like four is the complete number for us. I didn't want to find out the sex. I thought a surprise would be nice...but now I'm thinking knowing would be nice too! We have a few names picked out for boys and a few for girls. Actually, we have a solid girls name...and a list of boys names a mile long that people tilt their head sideways and think "whaaaat?"

It's all good though. I can tell you that the first name will start with an A...and the middle name will not start with an S, G or J. Oh....and although the girls REALLY wanted to name the baby Activia and Ativan -- we vetoed those! Sorry, they've been watching a little too much TV or something?! Actually, I'm not sure where they learn these things...

I'm finally feeling better...well, mostly. I was pretty sick early on...very sick. I thought it was the worst I'd ever felt and then I realized that I probably felt the worst with all of them. I have cravings but they aren't all that odd seeing as they are so similiar to the ones I've had with all of them! I liked fruit and carbs with all of them and hated different things with all of them. In fact, the weirdest thing was I couldn't drink anything other than lemonade and ice cold water...until one time the lemonade tasted like pinesol (like I even know what that tastes like?!) and I went to just ice cold water for weeks...along with whatever food I thought sounded good...and while most actual food didn't sound good - anything like muffins, cakes and granola bars sounded great! In fact, fudge was fabulous! LOL.

Ahh, now the cuteness -- Gator thinks its a girl, Peanut thinks it a boy and Achoo thinks there is a baby in Mommy AND Daddy's belly...so, what do you think - girl or boy? And feel free to drop some A names!!

I don't think we'd go with August/Augustus because we were like "isn't it odd to have a kid in August and name it August/Augustus" plus its not really a favorite name...and now that I'm thinking of it...wasn't K's dog Auggie a version of Augustus LOL. Yeah, no...no Augustus. I have my favorites...and one of them was the name that I wanted for Achoo. <3 I'll be honest though...I think its a girl. No one cares that my track record is completely off -- I was right with #1, wrong with #2 and #3....so I figure I've gotta be right this time with #4 because its 50/50 right? LOL

Mrs. Air Force said...

Hmm then I would say Abram. I love that name for a boy :)

Kelly said...

I vote for Aloysius! Because how cool would it be to be named after a Snuffleupagus!?!? AND... apparently, Aloysius was also Theo Huxtable's middle name! YES, right??? :)

Kelly, you are like the queen of trivia!!!!!!

Oh and Tanya- I'm digging Abram. I told my Mom I'd call him Abe - she didn't like that lol. Meanwhile Joe disnt take it off our list!

And a friend suggested Atom instead of Adam - we won't use either of those lol.

Atom is funny. Is your friend a scientist? I love the suggestions already mentioned and stink at boys' names, so I got nothing other than the comment, "You look amazing!"
