A Jumble and a Peck



So last night was my very first uncomfortable pregnancy night. I woke up at 3 (ish) and tossed and turned. I finished a book. I pulled the covers away from Juice (at least 3 times) only to toss them away again. I had 2 leg cramps and pulled my round ligaments just by laying still.  There was also a bout with heartburn that I was stubbornly ignoring and failing.  I finally fell asleep around 6am, only to be woken up by a screaming Professor for his barrel of monkeys. 20 minutes later.

Did I mention that I was coming down from a super nasty cold/flu thing? Fever, chills, aches, sleeping, snot, etc.

I am not at my best today.

Here’s a few (wordy) highlights from our past weeks because I’m just too tired to upload anything.

Baby, housing improvement, visitors, and jobs.  Oh my.

    Ok, here are my top 5 – Emmett (Emmett Arthur is really cute, don’t you think?), Henry, Thomas, Ezra and Parker. And then others I like – Benjamin, Shane, Dylan, Jack, Ian, James, Zachary, Elijah, Caleb and Jonah. And Finn’s kinda cute, too.

    Boys names should be manly. Names that will stand up when he is a man but have cool little boy nicknames. Here are my choices:

    1. Emmett (Follows the movie theme and is a cool name)
    2. Shane (Again a movie name and a cowboy name besides)
    3. Benjamin (I wanted Andrew to be Benjamin for a while)
    4. Jack (Jackie is a cool nickname)
    5. Ian (Irish influence because I am mostly Irish)
    6. Wyatt (lost cause, too many Ws but very manly)
    7. Caleb (Good nickname, for sure a boy)
    8. Henry Parker Watson (Hank P. Watson, doncha love it?)

    Boy names:

    Those are my favorites. If Sprout had been a boy she would have been William Grayson or flip around. lol. I never had a lot of boys names. Girls names were much easier. Congrats the little one being a boy. :)

    What types of jobs is Juice looking for? I can keep my eyes open over here. I’d love to have you guys over here. :)

    Okay, I’m with your mom. I love Thomas. Spencer was going to be Thomas & then for some reason wasn’t. I also think Parker is perfect. Love the nod to the family history. I also like Finn and Liam.

      Alright, I am going to try a couple of options.

      Garrett (disclosure, this is Angela’s brother’s name)

      Beyond that, there are always movie names, Thor, Bruce, Peter Parker, etc.

    His name isn’t going to fit the theme? I’ve been thinking up names for you that will fit the pattern you set… Most of them are very unique. :) A few could actually work.

    I told ElCid he needs to find a job for Juice nearby. He asked what nearby was, I told him west of Colorado.
