Happy September!

Wow, I can't believe it's September already! September, October, NOVEMBER!!! Wow, this little one will be here before I can get my mind wrapped around it. It's still hard to believe. She lets me know that she's in there...I see the proof as nothing fits and my belly is getting huge...but it's still hard to imagine having another baby! I think I'm more afraid of going through the labor again than actually having the baby with me. Haha! If you have ever heard someone say that you forget all about the labor once you have your baby, then they must have had a decent experience! I STILL remember the labor with Karlee. It is what totally freaks me out about what's to come in the next few months. I hope this time around it is a lot easier.

We still haven't picked a name out for this little one. I think Isabella is probably pretty permanent, but EG doesn't like it as a first name. He keeps bringing up "Catalina". I think of French dressing when I hear that! So that can't be her name. Nadia is okay...I just haven't settled on it. I have always liked Amelia, Emma, Elizabeth, etc., but many people have those names already or are naming their babies one of those names. Ashley's middle name is Elizabeth. As much as I'd love this baby to be Amelia, I don't think it's going to happen. I want to name her something different...she is special to me so I guess I want her name to be very special too. Landynn isn't bad...I just wanted our son to be Landon. I love "K" names but again, there's Karlee and Kelly/Kelita the cat. They sound too similar. When we yell at the cat Karlee cries because she thinks we're yelling at her! There's still a little time left to decide, I suppose.

If everything goes according to plan, I am going to do a little shopping today and tomorrow. Today I'm going to get Karlee a few clothes for the fall and/or winter. Tomorrow I am going to get some much needed new clothes for myself. Tomorrow EG has the day off, so it will be easier for me to shop. I can't try clothes on when it's just me and Karlee, and I hate to buy anything at this point without trying it on first. I love to shop! It's not often that I get to do it, so I'm going to enjoy it!

I am meeting up with some friends this Labor Day weekend that I have not seen in years, so I'm pretty excited about that! I'm sure they will be shocked at my massive weight gain. Ha! Sure I am pregnant, but I am also very heavy. They have not seen me since before my first pregnancy, so I'm sure I look about 100 pounds heavier. No joke! I am pretty self-conscious too. But hey, I'm sure they may have changed a little too. Probably not as much as me, but whatever. Maybe they'll be too happy to see me to notice anything else! Hahaha! I'll just tell myself that, anyway!
