April 2009



It’s still early, ok waaaay early, but eventually we are going to have to name this child. We can’t call him or her Opie forever!

We’re pretty much on the same page for girls. We both like Caroline and Sydney, and Madeline is starting to grow on Dan, I think.

Boys names might take a little more negotiation. I like Noah, Jonah, and Evan. Dan likes Robert and Jonathan.  We both sort of like William.

Maybe later we’ll take a poll. If that doesn’t work, there’s always Rufus Xavier Sasparilla! (Schoolhouse Rock reference, for those of you too young to remember)

…what an attentive, loving, and helpful husband I have?  He goes out of his way to make sure I’m comfortable and all my needs are met, and he is so excited about the baby. I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass him. 🙂

He’s going to be a great daddy!

200px-first_appearance_opie_taylor1I had another ultrasound this morning, and everything was perfect!  Baby is twice as tall (long?) as when I went for my initial visit and the heartbeat is 150 bpm.

As for me, I haven’t gained any weight yet, and I am flabbergasted by that fact!

We have been calling the baby “Opie,” just until we find out if we’re having a boy or a girl, and until we make a final decision about a name. Not to panic, though. I won’t really allow this child’s name to be Bob L. Head.

Stay tuned! There will be pictures to come!

We’re having a baby! I am about 8 weeks along and the baby seems to be happy in his or her current residence – me. There’s a healthy heartbeat and the doctor says everything looks great. Our due date is December 6th.

Stay tuned for updates on mommy and BabyHead!
