Too fat to blog...

I know so many of you have been wondering "where are the witty and insightful blogs from Rachel? I just can't go one more day without her shining brilliance..." Well, you'll just have to bide your time, my friends. Much as I am biding mine. Yes, that's right, I still haven't had the baby. I'm hot, crampy, and most of all seriously crabby. Don't believe me? Just ask Ashley. So, until I can either come to terms with the possibility of being pregnant for an indefinite amount of time OR I pop out this little peanut, you'll all just have to wait. Yes, I've got blogs that I need to write (i.e. Isaac's rockin' birthday's that for a teaser?). But I just don't have the mental energy right now. Sorry Charlies.

But I will throw you all this one little tidbit....we're that much closer on a baby far, we've received the suggestions of Bluebird and Cokey Coley (thanks Isaac) in addition to the old favorites of Cupcake and Sweetheart. And Annika is out. Kalena named one of her stuffed horses Annika since it's her favorite name. I don't have the heart to tell her that her obsession has officially ruined the name for me...all I can hear is her little whinny when I hear that name now...she has been going on and on about Annika and Raina (her two little horses) for weeks. But our short list now includes Rowan (the old favorite), Lyra and Wren. I guess only time will tell.

does your belly button hit the keyboard when you type?

i still love rowan. i like lyra too. wren is cute for a nickname but it reminds me of ren and stimpy. it's like it could be short for lauren. and it's only two letters away from being wrench. did i just ruin that name for you? sorry i'm just thinking of all the things that you may have missed.

i think it will be rowan though. come august 17th, we'll just have to see what she looks like :) ha ha.

love you, miss you!

AW! Grumpy or not I still love ya! And I love Wren, even after Marie tryed to ruin it, lol. But I do agree she will prob be a Rowan. And I can't wait for her arrival!

I am feeling you on the crampy uncomfortable crankiness.Not to forget having to pee everytime I move. BUt the good news is if I go up to two weeks over, then I still have six weeks left. Maybe I will be two weeks early, then I only have two weeks left.

Maybe you could name her Rowen and then call her wren for a nickname. They sound like they could go

I hope you everything goes well for you and you pop this little peanut sooner then later. Good luck!

So glad to hear from you - I was beginning to worry! I'm sorry that you are miserable but hang in there and stay out of the heat as much as possible. I hope you pop that peanut out before we move so that I can meet her and bring you all some goodies!! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you all.

Wren! I love it! Like the baby in the "Baby Blues" comics.

Sorry you feel like crap. It will be worth it in a FEW days when baby peanut comes. *HUGS*

It was good to see you today at the park! You look great!
