18 Weeks: We picked the name!

by Elizabeth on December 24, 2013

First of all, Merry Christmas Eve! Enjoy your family, friends, food, and the festivities (you like that alliteration?) Not sure how I’m almost halfway through this pregnancy, but definitely no complaints! This will possibly be the least eventful pregnancy post you’ve ever read and I apologize for that since my blog normally keeps you at the edge of your seat begging for more. I’ve been feeling pretty good minus an occasional headache here and there. If that’s my biggest problem though I’d say I have it pretty easy!
I did manage a bump picture…

20131223-220318.jpg Baby girl is growing like a weed in there and is the size of a bell pepper. I feel her kick constantly and Joe even felt it the other night while we were lying in bed. Have I mentioned how much I love feeling her? I didn’t think so ;-) In other exciting news, WE PICKED A NAME!!!! Picking a name is so hard I feel like. I actually prayed quite a bit for a sign from God and sure enough, I got it. It’s the perfect name for her. From what it means, to where it came from in the Bible, to how it sounds, I don’t think I could love it any more. We plan on telling our families on Christmas morning so for today, it’s our little secret. I apologize, If you’re dying to know you can probably bribe it out of Noah with a choo choo train or taking him outside to play…. He actually wanted to name her Percy (from Thomas the Train) but I think the one we chose will grow on him eventually.
I apologize for what I’m sure is a post full of terrible grammar and horribly structured sentences. It’s after 10 pm so I should have been asleep three hours ago. Don’t forget to put out your cookies and milk for Santa tonight!

You look so chic in your baby bump, picture. I don’t know how you do it, but you need to teach pregnant women everywhere your ways.

I’m with Noah, I think Percy is a super cute name. But I can’t wait to hear the one that you picked!!
