FINN (my little man)

Our family is growing! WELCOME to Finn Bradford Allen, born on July 17th at 1:31am. He weighed in at 8lbs 8oz and we are so happy he is here safe and sound.
Lucy is finally accepting her "demotion" from only child. It has been a dramatic process filled with a few tears (both from Lucy and me), but we are working out the kinks and the tantrums and are on our way to a BEST BIG SISSY of the year award.
Life is good!

We are stuck on boy names.

I am feeling pretty much moved into the house and ready for the baby to not be camped out in me anymore! I think he knows that we don't have his name picked out, so he is giving us some time to make sure we know what we are going to call him.
We have had a list of maybe names for a while now and just can't decide on one.
Our list:
Finnley (Finn)
Harrison (this is Lucy's favorite, but she would call him harry)
Quincey (Quinn)
Any suggestions? I know my mom doesn't like Finn. When I told her we were thinking Finn or Keller her response was, "Oh, I like Keller."
I still think of names I like, like Oliver, James, Claude... nothing seems just perfect.
Maybe I will have to see his face to know.

The countdown begins.

I had another ultra-sound yesterday and the tech said the baby is already six pounds! I have heard that babies grow about a pound a week for the last month. That means that if I go all the way to my due date he will be 10 pounds.


It wouldn't be completly odd for me to have a 10 pounder since I was 9lbs 3ozs and my little brother was 10lbs 5ozs. Let's hope not! I will die!

Too Busy for words... pictures will have to do.

I'm getting too big and pregnant (it's a Boy) to deal with toddler dental floss disasters... seems like when Dad is in charge, there are many "quiet messes". The best one yet involved a big container of bread crumbs. Or in Lucy's words... "dirt"

The volcano has been erupting A LOT. If we can't get out of here on our flight to Hawaii I will be MUCHO ANGRIDO!!

Alaska celebrated it's 50th b-day.

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! Celebration on the town square.

We bought a house! We will move in the middle of May! YIPPIE
