I had an thing with the letter "A."
We (I) had picked out the name Abigail..but then, an Abigail was born. So, then we picked out the name Anneke, aaaaand..an Anneke was born. Finally, we picked out the name Anabelle. Go figure, an Anabelle was born! So, we said forget it, we would wait to see whether the baby was a boy or a girl..and obviously, he was a boy and we didn't have to worry about it.
I'm not going to share the middle name that we had picked out for Travis if he was a girl...because if given the chance, I'll definitely use it. Otherwise, I'm fine telling you the others because they won't be used.
Today was quite a day..and such strange weather..rain, sun, torrential rain, sun, clouds, rain, sun..and so forth. Anyway, a big thanks to family members, you know who you are. Work day 2011 was productive. On to my list.
7 Baby Items I Love
1. Double stroller
It is wonderful! I don't care what people say. Don't leave home without it!
2. Boppy pillow
nice for nursing an infant, great for supporting a small baby on their belly or when learning to sit..
3. High Chair
Must be a reclining one! We use ours from infancy on
4. Pacifier Strap
no explanation necessary..this has saved us from many a woe
5. Bundle Me
fantastic for the cold months rather than having bulky snowsuits, wish there was one in my size..
Now mind you, this list is not exhaustive--there are so many good books out there..it was tough to choose just 11. It is quite possible these aren't the same eleven that I would choose tomorrow..but anyway. If you have never read one or any of them, I do recommend each.
We had our first trip to the "ice cream store," as the kids call it, earlier this week. A spur of the moment decision after visiting the doctor..Michael's allergies are THAT bad and the meds just weren't cutting it.
Anyway, as you can see, it was enjoyed.
I hope summer weather is right around the corner..this warm and then cold and then warm and then cold stuff is kind of aggravating.
