Well, this is the night before I go to have the baby. It is 10:15 pm and I need to be up at 4 am. Why am I still up? Though I tried to be prepared, something always comes up...like our puppy who has run off and my husband is out looking for him...arghhhh...that puppy and I do not get a long!!! It is all in the Lord's perfect, preordained will for us though, right?!

AJ is sick and wanted to be in bed by 8 pm and I wanted to be in bed by 9pm. Yeah right.

Today was a good day. I told the kids when they got up, no work today, they were shocked! I told them we were going to have a fun day together. We went to an indoor park, had waffles for lunch ( they have been wanting some for awhile) and then we went to the mall for them to pick one baby boy's outfit and one girl's outfit.

They had a blast at the park, and enjoyed picking out the outfits. I would have chose some other ones but I wanted them to choose. They were so excited!

After AJ got home we went to Chic-Fil-A for dinner which they LOVE. Their Poppa Armand met us there. While there we ran into two familes we know so they were excited.

When we got home we took one last picture of the kids holding by belly. They have enjoyed this pregnancy, rubbing on my belly, talking to the baby, poking at the baby trying to get "Little Bambino" to move. I think it upset the baby a few times though! :)

As we go into have the baby tomorrow morning we still do not have a name picked out for a boy or a girl. Last night I told AJ we really need to pick out a name. "E" our 6 year old said, "I know what we can name the baby!!!"

You have to understand, he has been wanting to name our baby "Berry" so he can call it "Sweet Berry" since our last child was born 2 yrs. ago. We got this new puppy for him so he could name it "Berry". He did. BUT we were not off the hook. :)

So I say, "E. what do you think we should name the baby?"
E: " I think we should name it 'Cracker.'"
Me: "Cracker? Why do you think we should name the baby 'Cracker', E?" (thinking, well, we are white folks and that is a nickname for us :)

E: "Because it is sweet and sounds STRONG!"

I did not know what to say, but I will remind him one day when he is older and about to have his first baby, Lord-willing, of these names! I doubt his wife will agree to them. :)

E...what a character...gotta love the boy!

I am off for now! AJ insists I am insane because I need to be in bed.

Coming up...the big news of whether the baby is a boy or a girl!

Can't wait to see what God has given us...a Bambina or a Bambino.

P.S. I like the name Berry Cracker...sounds like the male cousin of Betty Crocker! Hee hee!
