Mostly Pictures Aaaannnnddd a Name!

Things around here are progressing...

We (aka Ron) got the crib put together, and it looks nice!


The part we don't get is that we don't see how to bring the mattress up from off the bottom. We don't really want baby girl sleeping on the floor now do we? I looked through the instructions and didn't see anything and there aren't the pegs on the crib bars that people have said would be there. It's confusing! I suppose this is the first of many confusions headed our way as we enter parenthood. ha

Here is a pic of the belly at 32 weeks -


I feel ginormous! But I know I am only going to get bigger... Fredo asked me about the name we would be giving baby girl and I said that I would post it, so here goes. Skylar Helena (Hel aye nah). Helena was a given, Helen was my fave grandmothers name and also Ron's grandmothers name. And then to top it all off, Ron grew up in Helena Alabama, so he was sold. I love the name Helena though... I forget why we didn't want it as a first name but I love Skylar as well! We wanted something that wasn't an everyday name... If you hate the name we have chosen please don't come down too hard on us. We like it. :-)

And now I shall leave you with a funny!


Happy weekend peeps!

I like the names very much! It's great that you are using your grandmother's names too - I wanted to name a daughter after my grandmother but had a boy, so that didn't happen.

The names are nice. I particularly love Helena. You have a great looking
bump. That little girl must be really growing!!

I think she is taking over my body.

Great names! I didn't know Ron grew up in Alabama. Does he have one of those sweet southern accents?
comment by troutbend on Mar 8, 2013 2:59 PM ()
No he doesn't have the accent, but he has the sloooooooow mentality that drives this native upstate NYer bonkers at times.

I adored my Grandma named Helen. She was cool

Skylar seems to be one of those modern unisex names. Not that that matters... it's a nice name for either sex.
comment by jjoohhnn on Mar 8, 2013 1:18 PM ()
it is unisex... it seems as though they first go unisex then they become girl names, so I am kinda hoping for that.

I loved them both.Helena and Skylar.This picture of your baby bump should be scared to keep and show her when she is old enough.Saved the pictures as I know that she will be happy with it.The names are great.
comment by fredo on Mar 8, 2013 1:06 PM ()
We are saving everything, probably too much, but at least she will have it all. I haven't sent the pics off to be printed yet though. Glad you like the names! We love em.
