More on Baby Names and a Rocking Dinner

Today we are 15 weeks. I borrowed my neighbors doppler again and heard that precious baby's heart beating....! Nothing more incredible than hearing a life growing inside you. I am really trying to talk about this baby a lot to Little Lily....When we go into her room I'll point to the crib and tell her this is where her baby will sleep. I will point to my tummy and tell her the baby is sleeping in mommy's tummy and when we listen for the heartbeat...she is helping me and I tell her that is the baby's heart beating....
We say "Hi baby" to my belly too!
I know she will make an incredible big sister just like the big kids are to her!

Hubs is convinced it's a GIRL and calls her by name all the time.

I got a lot of you asking the names...Ok I'll tell you the name as soon as we find out what we are having...almost a month to go now and I'm on pins and needles!

I wrote the baby names on the menu board last night to see how they look. Hubs added an E to the end of the girl's name. I have to admit I like it. He told me that was the correct spelling of it and when he pulled up one of my fav actresses w/that name and noticed that's how she spelled it I was hooked! haha

Another one of my fav actresses has that name too...(she spells it diff) and I totally loved her until I saw an interview recently in a magazine w/her. I was shocked at her parenting views. (I still like her name even though she is a nut)
I've been told I even look like her in the past. I think it's her cheekbones and the shape of her eyes!

So any ideas? (wiggles eyebrows?)

Lily has been feeding objects her food lately. The other day she fed her Roni (macaroni) to the Little Bear dvd cover. I mean I guess he had to eat too huh?
Well yesterday I was craving Hummus and gave Little Lily some...I went to get her bowl and noticed it was empty and realized I have a fan of hummus like her big sister. That is until I looked closer. Look at her wooden doll...I guess she was hungry too!

I'm not sure I have posted this before, but it is by far a favorite dish of mine. Quick and easy and soooo dern yummy! For those on WW...8 pts per serving.

Aly @ Analyze This said...

I know what they are!!! But my lips are sealed!

Wonderful to hear that you are talking to Lily about the baby! Don't want her to be all shocked when it comes!

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

is that doll magnetic and you can dress her up? R has that one if so! and I thought the name had an e on it too! I like it! Now I want to know who the actress is though...guess Ill google it and hope it pulls up by first name?

New Mommy!!! said...

That is hilarious. Nik is always feeding her stuffed animals and dolls, but hasnt gone as far to feed dvd's. We don't have that magnetic doll, but it's super cute. I have wanted oen of those for Nik.

Is it Julianne Moore? I think that's wrong, but I will think about it, and get back to you.

I fixed my email, I never knew how. I don't have a link for it, but I think you can check the email box in comments, maybe. Or do I need to set a link, you'll have to help me with that too, I'm afraid. hee,hee

New Mommy!!! said...

Together We Save said...

So cute... feeding the doll. Your dinner looks wonderful. As for the baby name I can't wait till you tell us. Glad you are feeling good.

New Mommy!!! said...

I did it correct I swear!! I need professional blog help, like a blog assistant. Ha! I am getting emails now when people write me comments. But, it's showing the comments that are public t everyone, so you can't be discreet if that's what you mean.

I give up. hee, hee
