Jaaaake---

Did you know that your name is the number one most popular name in the US right now? And your middle name is the number seven name. Your middle name was almost Daylor, and sometimes I wish I would have went with that... I'm a big fan of the more unique names and spellings. I was thinking the other day that we should spell your name Jakob, which is how it would be spelled in most other countries anyway. But of course I'll have to check with Daddy first... and Gigi, to make sure that nothing's been bought with "Jacob" already monogrammed into it.



It's always interesting to know what you would have been named if you ended up the opposite gender... I think my mom said I would have been Charlie... or something... I'm not sure. I asked her a long time ago, and I'd really like to know now, but it's too late at night to call her. But anyway, in case you ever wanted to know, you would have been Kaia Donavyn. It started out as Kaia Dawn, but your Aunt Bug wants to use that name for HER first girl... so Daddy and I decided to let her have it...






I finally got around to taking my own pictures of your nursery. We still need to put up curtains... but other than that, it's finished. Every time I walk down the hall, I stop and look through your doorway. Boston already sleeps in it, ready to guard something, but not sure what it is yet (the expensive furniture, maybe?). But every time I walk by, I can't help but think of all the times Daddy told me about our Paw-Paw, and how he'd walk down that hallway and stop in the same exact spot, looking in on him... even when he was 20! So I can't help but wonder if, while I'm looking in, he's looking in right behind my shoulder, too. I know it wouldn't scare you... you got to meet him in heaven and spend a few days with him before you came to earth... and it makes me feel good to know we've got another set of eyes looking out for you. Big Jake is looking out for his Little Jake.


(BTW that is NOT a real baby... that's a doll)


I'll be 36 weeks pregnant at our appointment tomorrow... that means we'll be meeting you any day, but probably not until after 37 weeks. I need to get Daddy to take another picture of my belly... it's so fascinating to put them all next to each other! You were easier on me today than usual... maybe because I tried to take it easier today than usual... and I could actually breathe and walk around some.

I thought you'd like to know that gas is actually really cheap right now... HAHAHA! Well, when I first started driving, it was 1.60-1.70... the highest it ever got was right after hurricane Katrina last year, at 3.40 or so. Recently it's been sitting around 2.70, except the last two or three weeks because of ELECTIONS it's been 2.20-2.30. But it'll go back up right after all the formalities end. Our president is George W. Bush, who looks like a monkey and thinks like one, too. I'd assassinate him myself, but then this guy named Dick Cheney would be the president, and that'd be even worse. So us decent American folk that don't like Bush (58 per cent of the population) are patiently waiting for the next election... and praying... and praying some more....

But anyway, JD, it's almost 10. And that's way past Mama's bedtime. I'm just waiting for Daddy to get home. He went to a youth church thing and said he'd be home at a decent hour... but you know how these things go... you've already been to a few with us, and we NEVER get home early! So I'm going to lie here on the couch and watch the weather channel until he gets home... I have a feeling you and I are going to watch a lot of the weather channel once you get here, too... it's really some nice jazz if you listen to it.

Love,
Mama

2 Strange Opinions:

Anonymous Gigi thinks...

I must say the comment about PawPaw checking in on the babies hit home. I can't tell you how many times he must have stopped just to "get a peek" of his babies. I miss him.

I miss him too.

I wish he'd tell Bubba Cat to stop sleeping in the crib though... that's not HIS bed!

But hey, it'll *hint hint* give you an opportunity to come over and show me how to put on the crib mattress and waterproof thing w/o thinking evil thoughts about motherhood...
