Lissa & Randy Stops By
It was so good to see my cousins, Randy and Lissa, again. They stopped by on their way home. It's too bad that they live so far away to where we don't get to see them as much as we would like, but we enjoyed the time we had with them. Hopefully, we'll be able to see them next year when the baby arrives.
Okay, I've had a couple of requests to see an updated picture of the baby bump. I felt pretty good Saturday, so I thought I had better take that picture. Ha! I'm 16 weeks pregnant and I still haven't felt the baby move. I'm expecting to feel a flutter or bubble at any time now. In a way, I'm glad it's not as active as his/her sister was at this time. It's funny how you have a hard time waiting for that next stage in pregnancy and your child's development. You can't wait to feel thoses first kicks inside your belly, then when it finally starts all you want is for it to calm down a little. Katie loved to jump around in my belly late at night, while laying on my side. My next doctor's appointment is next week, so I'm excited to hear that little heart beat and make sure everything's still good.
Here's a side view. Doug and I have been discussing baby names. Doug was watching a football game and some one from the Texas team was named "Colt". He asked about that name because he really liked it. Well, I hadn't told him yet, but I had been tossing around the name "Colton" in my own head. I asked him, "what about Colton?" He agreed that he liked it. Right now, we like the name Colton Lamar for a boy's name and we like Lauren for a girl's name. I'm having a difficult time coming up with a middle name for the girl. I think the name Lauren Elizabeth would be beautiful, but I'm afraid my sister, Susan, would kill me. She wants a niece named after her and since my other sister's name is June Elizabeth, it won't be good for me. Plus, I have a niece named Elizabeth "Liz". So, I'm stuck with the middle name. We still have lots of time and I'm sure something will hit me just perfect.
