We finally picked out a name. I just hope those who have watched Frazier don't confuse her personality with the personality of Maris on that show. Our little Maris is the complete opposite of her, very sweet, lovable, playful and amazing!



Great name!!!

I love that you call her Dr. Wifey now. That's so cute!

Hey everybody! Between Paul and Bay City, some of yall have been jamming! I love, love, love live music. A lot of the songs on my phone are my favorite groups playing live (ripped from youtube). You just can't beat live music.

Yesterday, we went to a branch of Toys-R-Us called Babies-R-Us. Let me tell you, I can't wait for Christmas with a little one! There were all kinds of things! It just was almost overwhelming! We had such a good time looking at all the little gadgets and toys!

More outside work today. I really need to weed my flower bed, but I HATE doing that! But I bought my flowers Thursday night, so I need to do it.

Love the Christmas in July party coming up....I love this place.

Have a great one!

Babies-R-Us is one amazing place! I don't have one that close to me, but have stopped at one several times and just love it. It's a one-stop-shop for baby gear!

Good morning,

Enjoy the day!!!

Anyway, I think I got 2 hours of sleep or so. EA got up around 6:30. DH just got home around 7, so I am wide awake now. They are both laying in the bed here with me. We're trying to not make too much noise, so DS can sleep. I am going to need a strong cup of coffee!

What are everyone's plans for today? DH said there is a old steam engine coming through town today, so he is going to take the kids up to see it. By that time, I may be laying down for a nap...haha. It's around 9 or 10, so I may be pretty sleepy by that time this morning. Other than that, I'm not sure what we will get ourselves in to.

I hope you all have a great day and keep enjoying the holiday. It's supposed to warm up here. Talk to you all later on!

Poor Guy. I'm sad to hear that he had another bad night and that you didn't get any sleep. I was up to almost 3:30. I should have messaged you again!!! Have fun today and get that nap in later!!!!!!!
