This and That

I’ve got a lot in my mind that needs to come out. Unfortunately, these ideas are like rascally two year old that run from you as soon as you even look in their direction. But the main things…

I’ve been feeling Bobbie Jo moving around a lot. At first I didn’t pay much attention to it, just figuring it was gas or something. After all, I’ve got plenty to spare. But then I realized it was always in the same area, felt the same. It feels like I’m being flicked from the inside. Never mind the “butterflies” or a “fluttering sensation,” this baby goes for the punch! Thankfully, it’s nothing that keeps me awake at night, but I’m sure that’s coming, right?

This morning, Bobbie Jo was moving a bit, so I put MCM’s hand on my tummy, and she graced him with a movement, like immediately. I’m glad he was able to feel it :D

We’re headed to my parent’s house for the weekend. I’m eager to show off my baby bump, and have someone go clothes shopping with me. The rubber band trick isn’t cutting it any more. I need some elastic-ness to keep the pants from looking like the ghetto boys who have to hike theirs up after every 1/3 step.

Blondie and I are going to Kohl’s. You know those peely coupons they send off to you. They say “get 10, 15, or 30% off” as if they really give *anyone* those 30% coupons, I know I never do. BUT for this one! I got the 30% off one!!

Then, tonight, I’ve got a date! MCM and I are triple dating with Blondie, her boyfriend, and my parents.

All those thoughts have scattered, and I’m left grasping at…nothing really. Besides I’m in the truck typing this and using battery power that doesn’t ever seem to last long enough.

But, oh! Before you do go, I’m in need of some advice. We’ve picked out a boy’s name, Brendon Cole/Creed. But here’s the thing. *Everyone* wants to say braaandon instead of breeendon. I don’t want to have to correct everyone every time they say ‘Oh Brandon that’s cute.’ “No dummy, listen, I said Brendon.” So….if you happen to know of a name that fits with Cole or Creed, mind letting me borrow it? I don’t want something boring and common. I’m looking for something a little more rare, not weird, though.

Ready? Set! Go!
