21 Weeks and E's Name!

Yesterday marked 21 weeks!  Hooray!  We are less than 2 weeks away from our scary time, less than 3 from viability, and about 16 weeks from delivery!  I am SOOOOO ready for December!

I am definitely looking pregnant, even though I continue to get the "I didn't know you were pregnant!" exclamations!  Mainly from people I haven't seen in a while.  That's okay though...at least I've gotten past the awkward stage of just looking like I've gained weight (which I have....and quite a bit too...). 

Baby E now has a name...which I have received MANY mixed reviews on...but, oh well!

Baby E's name will be Evyn Myka!  Myka was chosen because Adam's gaming name has always been "Myka", but in an effort to make it a little more feminine, we changed the spelling.  We knew we would use an E name for the first name, and with the middle name Myka, there were many things that we did NOT want to use because of how it sounded.  But, Evan stood out to us and is a gender neutral name, so we again decided to change the spelling to make it a little more girly, and that's how we came up with Evyn!

Cameron is officially in a big girl bed.  She has a full size bed and a matching dresser for her room.  I have resolved to putting a body pillow at the edge, under the fitted sheet, because on night 2, I do believe she rolled out of bed.  We never heard her cry and didn't realize she was in the floor until I went to get her up the next morning.  This mommy felt REALLY bad!

All of the old "baby" furniture (crib and the matching dresser/changing table) has been moved to Evyn's future room.  Most is set up, but not all.  And it's a mess in there.  I'm cleaning up 4 years of stuff in the dedicated "junk" room that will become her room.  And for the last 2 years, it's been the collecting room of ALL of Cameron's clothes that I have kept, just in case we need them again.  Problem is now that Cameron's clothes (most of them) will not work because Cameron was a late summer/early fall baby, and Evyn will be a winter baby.  So, I am working to organize and get ready for our local "Just Between Friends" consignment sale to try to earn a little bit of cash and get a new wardrobe for Evyn.

Other than that, we're just staying busy and trying to pass the days and months til it's time to meet this little girl!  We can't wait!

I really like the name Evan and how you made it girly(:

Sal and baby #2 are both January babies, but.....the next one is a girl and my affection for baby boy camo outfits probably won't go ver to well with a little girl. Wishing we had bought more gender neutral baby clothes for him! Lol..although, I suppose, adding pink to Camo might work..sometimes..lol

Too bad, so sad, gotta go shopping, lol.
