So to help us decide on a name for our, as of yet, unnamed girl, I am throwing out this little post/contest. Help Malea and I decided on a name and we may choose your suggestion.
The details of this little contest:
1. Any name can be suggested, but try to avoid any profanity.
2. The more information you can give us about the name you choose the better your chances of being selected as the winner.
3. Be creative.
4. Don't be afraid to suggest something that has meaning to yourself.
Well that's it. Thanks for all of your help. And to those of you who think that I am just being lazy in my parenting duties, you are right, and I could really use your help.
Below is 26 weeks.
It wasn't at all on purpose, but I noticed that each new picture shows a little less enthusiam at getting larger. I have to admit, it's really exciting to start showing around 20 weeks, but that baby gets heavy pretty fast! Note to self: do back-strengthening exercises before next pregnancy.

On top of the new job, we had our renters move in this week. With the new people moving in, I needed to clean the downstairs and make it ready for new tenants. Luckily, my mother was able to come to the aid and clean the house for me. I did all the heavy lifting, but my mom was a rock star and made the apartment look great.
To top everything off, our contractor let us know that he could not do anything until we painted the kitchen. While this was a little inconvenient, having finished the painting, the kitchen looks great. We have been living in this house for nearly five years and until now our kitchen has been three different colors.
Anyway, with all that said, I am hoping to post more often.
Feeling my babies foot made my wife's pregnancy all the more real. The reality of feeling the baby freaked me out more than anything else.
I wanted to add a picture of the Alien Chestburster, but realized that that may be a little too graphic for some readers.
James is a sanding mad man in this picture. And kind of a mad man in general.

Below is our contractor and the first day of demolition!
Below is our current kitchen after they took out the carpet. We're painting and then they will come and put up new cabinets and tile the floor. Then, we will put in some newer appliances and voila! I'm psyched to have it upgraded, and even more psyched to have running water and a working stove again.
My handsome husband has just been hired as a US Census Enumerator. That means he gets to spend his Spring walking in the beautiful weather and counting people. We're thrilled for him to be out and busy since he's been so bored and we've been so poor!
It was like pulling teeth to get this picture, but you can see he's already getting tan from being outdoors. I'm so jealous that he gets to enjoy the Spring! Look how cute he is with his Census Bureau man purse. I sure love him...and temporary government jobs.

I'm posting the only two pictures that had ANY use. The top is the face. A little skeletor-looking, but it's the head (forhead facing right) with two spread out black eye spots and a single black mouth-looking hole. Yeah, awesome. The bottom one was at least recognizable. It's her arm and hand with a little pinky sticking out. Terry (James' brother) said that's the pinky that she's going to wrap James around.
