Family share

I very rarely share pictures of my family...I don't know why...they are so darn cute, but I'm a little biased ;-) Here's one I took the other day of Sydney (aka, crabbypants) when she was at Scott's desk working. The other pic is of Tristan at his 8th birthday party (Mr. Cheeseball)

So far, so good with baby #3. I see the Dr. twice a week and while I'm measuring a little big (peanut weighed about 5 lbs. last week), my weight gain this time has been awesome (only 9 lbs.). I have to say I am looking forward to baby's arrival and working this weight back off again. Still no girls names picked out which was kind of the predicament we were in last pregnancy, changed the girls name after she arrived. I wanted to go in to the birth this time with name picked out but don't think that's going to happen.

Scott and I like names that are a little different and mostly we love movies so Tristan was named for Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall. Sydney...well that wasn't her original name that we had picked out so no movie story there (although my friend said we could say she was named after Sydney in the movie Scream). Our boys name this time is Finley (Fin) which we fell in love with watching Great Expectations with Ethan Hawke, but Finnegan was a little too much so someone suggested Finley which we both equally loved.

So, any name suggestions, we are open to them!!! Only 4-5 more weeks to decide as I think they will be inducing a week or two early depending on how things go the next few weeks. Also, any tips for getting my toddler to sleep in her OWN bed in her OWN room at night? We have been working on it for 2 months now and it's still taking an hour or two of putting her back in her bed, her getting up, etc. before she finally falls asleep. Baby and her will be sharing a room eventually for a few months so I REALLY need to her to sleep in there ;-)

Thanks for any name suggestions and always for the well wishes!

Ummmmm, I have no advice about getting a toddler to sleep on their own in their own room. My kids never really totally slept through the night consistently till about 3. My oldest got to the point where we kept a sleeping bag on the floor for him and he could sleep there. My middle one occasionally tries to come in (mainly when he's not feeling well), and my youngest offically got her big girl bed after she turned 3 in August and only stays in her room all night about 2-3 nights per week. I'm a tired mama!

Anyway, you're in the home stretch now and that is totally exciting!!!!! I'm sure this new baby will be cute cuz your other 2 are gorgeous!

My cousin named her daughter Darion ( not sure how she spells it) from Die Hard. That was Bruce Willis' daughters name.

BTW, we moved to Jefferson!
