Well, since some of you have asked about a name, I’ll go ahead and tell you. Even though we thought it was a girl, we were more settled on a boy’s name than a girl’s. So our baby will be Jackson Lee. Jamin says we are sounding a little Confederate. 🙂 I told him we could call him Jackson Grant to keep it even, but he didn’t like that! Lee is Jamin’s middle name, and also several others on both sides of the family. We’re really pleased with our baby name.
I actually had better nursery plans for a boy too. We’re doing airplanes, and I’m planning hard. I’m going to buy fabric today. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to make all the bedding for this baby. I’ve got it all drawn out, I just hope it comes out the same as it looks on paper. I made some letters for his name. They are wooden letters, about 6-7″ high. They have little bits of fabric put on with Mod Podge, and separated with brown yarn. They look pretty good. I’m going to use some of those same fabrics on the crib. I only took a picture of the first four letters. We’re not just going to call him Jack.
We’re also going to register today. Since we’re planning to move in 3-4 weeks, my mom is planning my baby shower for the last Saturday in September. It’s a little sooner than most baby showers, but I’m afraid that I won’t be able to get down here very easy. Also, if I get a few large things (swing, stroller), they won’t fit in my car. So we’re just going to do it before we move so we can pack it all in the huge truck when we’re moving. Fun, fun, fun!!
Okay, switching gears. The other day I went to work with Jamin for a little while. He usually works with another man, but that day he went on a job by himself. It was a pretty day, so I sat in the truck and finished a book I started a month ago. I liked watching him work. It was sweet to spend the afternoon together. 🙂 He’s been working very hard lately, and sometimes very long hours.
One more picture…after church the other night, Jamin was so sweet, telling me I looked beautiful. He wanted to take a picture of me. Even though I was looking very tired, the sweet way he looked at me was priceless. 🙂 Mushy.
Have a great week!
