It February!

And that means its my birthday. Yay. This year was the best birthday Ive had in years. I woke to a little boy in my face screaming Happy Birthday mommy, followed by a huge whoo, several times over and over again. My dear hubby and son both bought me a card. I must admit Blake's was so much better than Josh's. It sang me Twinkle Twinkle little star and it had Blake's voice recorded saying Happy Birthday to me. I loved it. They also give me a huge bunch of roses and took me to dinner. I felt very loved this year.

Toby is doing better. Lucky they said he didn't have the mange and was just allergic to a flea or insect bite. They changed his flea medication to an oral one instead of the liquid drops. It does appear to already be growing back and healing so I hope that was all it was.

Fast forward to today baby bean is exactly 17 weeks baked. I can't believe we are almost half way through. My next appointment is on March 2 for the bug ultrasound. I'm very excited to see what we are having. Some people think this is a girl, but I kinda feel like its a boy. If its a girl, I'm hoping I can talk Josh into all 3 of us wearing pinks shirts to spill the beans so to speak.

Names have been the subject for the last few weeks in our house. For a girl we have narrowed it down to these Joslyn, Addilyn, Haley, Whitney, or Kaelyn. Her middle name would be Arabella. As for boys, we can not agree. Zachary, Jaxson, Ryan and Weston have all been thrown around but I can't commit to either right now. I love Jayden but Josh hates it. Does anyone have any suggestion for boy names? I seriously, seriously would love to hear them.

This is the only page Ive done in weeks. I'm to tired to do anything it seems. I hope to be back to my old self again soon. I'm hoping some of the new products from CHA will be inspire me.

Super cute layout! I really love your design.
Baby names are so hard! They have to live with it forever right? I am scheduled to deliver my little guy on March 10th, so we finally picked out a name. We are keeping it a secret until the big day though.

Happy birthday Cathy! Glad to hear Toby's doing fine. I love your LO, like the way it looks and love your title.

As far as names are concerned ... it's such a personal thing. I remember when I was pregnant, I had a huge list with all three of my kids, and hubby didn't like one of them! All of their names are results of compromises!! I like Zach, not Zachary, and I quite like Jaxson as well. Personally I've always loved the name Jake, but Blake and Jake that's a no-go I think LOL. Another one I've always liked is Matt.
My favorite of your list would have to be Jayden though, sorry to hear hubby isn't liking that one. How about just "Jay"? Ah well, still plenty of time for you guys to agree on a name you both like!
