Rita-I love your taste of names--I like Ethan also but DH does not. My cousin named her daughter Maya Rose so that one is out and Olivia is the name of one of the adult stores in a city 75 miles from us so Jarrod has x-nayed that!

haha... Im in love with Ethan but my dh isnt crazy about it either haha.. Maya Rose is a combination of both of my grandmothers that passed away, Maya and Rose ergo, maya rose hehe... Olivia is pretty but its not my favorite... hopefully when the time comes, my 100,000+ baby name book will come in handy haha..

Mags - Yoga pants totally ROCK and our baby bumps will be AWESOME!!

Thanks! I like to think that she is always here in spirit watching over us, but it's still hard and I wish she could have gotten to meet her grandchildren in person.

Couldn't find anything recent, this was taken last year. My hair is much shorter now.

Maggie and Kaleigh - It was awesome to feel the hiccups, at first. Then it got to be annoying, like a twitch that was always there. But always a happy reminder, too.

Cassandra - Your little boy is adorable!!! I love that 6 month pic.

Emma - You should read "So that's what those things are for", it totally changed my opinion about breastfeeding from "well I'll try and see what happens" to "I will make it happen". I would also highly recommend a lactation counselor/consultant and a nursing group or LLL group for support. And finally, a cranial sacral therapist to help with any birth trama (on the baby) can help breastfeeding as well.
