Baby Names around the World from Aunt Katie (Brent's sister). The names in this book are ridiculous! Here are our favorites, but they are NOT candidates for names! The descriptions are funnier than the actual names.
1. Hayfa = Arabic for shapely
2. Heltu = Moquelunmam for like a bear reaching out
3. Kudio = Swahili for born on Monday
4. Luyu = Moquelumnan for like a pecking bird
5. Ronaele = Greek for Eleanor spelled backwards
1. Bobek = Czech for from of Bob
2. Danior = Gypsy for born with teeth
3. Iniko = Ibo for born during bad times
4. Kamuhanda = Runyankore for born on the way to the hospital
5. Nalren = Dene for thawed out
6. Tiktu = Moquelumnan for bird digging up potatoes
Ok we still have not had a blog poll for my mom's grandmother name. So, until she can give me some options, I'm calling her MeMaw. Not only did she get me Haitian maternity dresses from her cruise, she bought Poppyseed t-shirts from Cozumel. Obviously, the yellow if it's a boy and the pink if it's a girl.
My mom is the children's minister at the church I grew up in. Every year, instead of buying Lifeway's VBS shirt, she has a t-shirt contest for the kids. This is the winner for the Boomerang Express and she got Poppyseed one. The shirt is a youth small so it will be a while before he/she can wear it.
This gift just makes my heart melt every time I see it :) My sweet friend, Ashley, made this for my little one. I met her for lunch on Saturday at Panera Bread while I was in the Ham and she gave me this onesie and a card. If it weren't for the distraction of the weird man staring at me and making me uncomfortable, I would have cried. I can't help but smile when I see this. I look at it everyday :) It's just too sweet. Thanks Aunt Ashley...I can't wait for Poppyseed to wear it!
"If you think I'm cute you should see my Uncle." From none other than Uncle Ryan (Brent's goober brother). He went to the beach at the beginning of the Summer and he didn't care for any other souvenir but this onesie. His rule: Poppyseed has to wear this everytime we come home.
"I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praise to my God while I have my being" Psalm 104:33. A long time ago, long before the thought of children seriously crossed our minds, I dragged Brent to Hartselle to go antique shopping. I saw this wall decor and absolutely fell in love. I almost bought it, but the frugal and sensible side of me talked me out of it. I made a promise to myself that if I ever came back and it was still there, I would buy it. Back in the Fall, my mom and I were in Hartselle and I went back in the store to see if it was there...and it was! So my mom bought it for Poppyseed (who was non-existent at the time).
I'm now 12 weeks along and starting to show! I feel like a bloated, swollen whale all the time. And I don't care what people say to try to convince me otherwise, I still feel like a swollen whale. I've been to the doctor twice, had an ultrasound and heard the heartbeat, quickly beating at 160! I keep forgetting to scan the ultrasound picture! It's a pretty bad picture. The technician had a great shot and then moved the camera just before she took the picture, so it's really blurry. Be looking for our new series. I haven't come up with a name for it yet, but it will involve food and family pictures once a week (we hope).
