Well, Matt and I have named our little girl! We are very excited about it, and knowing her name helps to give me a bit of a better chance to bond with her- as this pregnancy is so hard- and the future- a good, happy future, is to hard to envision- having had a tragic experience at the end of the last perfect 9 months. So, anything I can do to help that bond, and to help my brain get out of a funk- is good!
We've named her Charlotte. A strong, old-fashioned, yet uncommon name- which we think is lovely! it means 'Little Women', or "Little and Feminine" We couldn't find any N names that we both really liked- and we didn't want to name our child something that we didn't love! Charlotte, like Noah and Matt will have 2 middle names.. and although she won't have an N name, she will learn about her brother, and know him well- from the way we live our lives because he was here.
So, I guess I need to change the name of my blog! Can I change the url without anyone who has it bookmarked etc. having to change stuff?? Maybe I'll just change the title.. who knows!
Time is actually going at an OK rate these days. Those first 15 weeks of pregnancy with this little one just went by so slowly- I didn't know what to do with myself. Being almost half way through now- I can see the home stretch- I can make time into 'chunks' which makes it seem more managable. For instance- 4 weeks of summer school, 4 weeks of vacation (one of which we have a little baby-moon up north in a cottage), 7 or 8 weeks of school, then 2 weeks of Mat leave before the baby comes! Seems more do-able than when it was 40 weeks of stress!
I'm excited for next week when I have a doctors appointment, hospital registration and an ultrasound all in 2 days! Yippy!
A 30 something mother to three. Two beautiful boys, Noah, who lives among the stars and in my heart, and Spencer, my youngest little munchkin, and one beautiful girl, Charlotte, who lives here with us. My blogs are a collections of my thoughts, feelings and ramblings of a women who will forever be changed by all of her children.
