What We've Been Up To :)

Getting ready for baby! That about sums it up. I've finally hit that nesting phase and, now that I know how hectic it can be after the baby arrives, I am getting as much done as possible before he arrives. Luckily, I have two fantastic helpers. Lily has become quite the good cleaner as you can see in the picture above. She actually vacuumed most of her own room pretty well. I was impressed. Now that bending over is not the most comfortable thing for me to do, it is great that Lily thinks helping me switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer is fun, too! We can only hope that she thinks cleaning is just as fun when she gets older!

In baby news, it is fun to say that he will be here next month! (unless he is late and is a August baby ... ). Poor little guy does not have a name yet. We are anticipating another active and feisty little soul like Lily - this boy is quite the kicker! So far the names on our list are: Cortland, Kyler, Lincoln, Cohen, Tate, and Trace or Trey. Any favorites or others that anyone likes? We are open to suggestions!

If I had a boy and I had to pick from that list of names, I'd pick Kyler or Lincoln, but they are all cute names. That picture of Lily vacuuming is so cute!

I like Kyler too! We need to get together before you have a big huge change in your life!

How funny! I was going to say I like Kyler the best as well. I guess I am not the only one that thinks that is a really cool name.

Like the pic!! She is a doll!!

Names are tough. I'm sure you'll pick the perfect one. Maybe you'll have to see him first before you know just what that name is.

I am so happy for you! It's coming so fast. Can't wait to see pictures.
