Drum roll please...

Here's a couple of pictures of Burin, me, and the 28-week belly on Christmas day at the elder Nowell household. Please forgive my general swollenness.. well, for obvious reasons, and then I had a cold, so I was sniffly, coughy, and sneezy (and still am) so my face looks like a mess.

Everything is still going pretty well with the pregnancy. I had an appointment a couple of weeks ago and everything looked really good. I had to do the glucose tolerance test, they checked for anemia, etc. and all the levels were great. I also had to get a shot because I'm Rh-negative, and will more than likely have to get another one after the baby is born. :(

They also did another sonogram, and the baby looks good. The tech could even tell that she already has some hair on her head! :) I can't wait to put tiny little baby bows in her hair. And do a little water spout ponytail on top of her head. Of course I would never do these things to myself, only tiny helpless little people that it actually looks cute on.

And now the moment you've all been waiting for: her name. Now keep in mind that this is not typed onto her birth certificate with a typewriter just yet, but it's the name that we think we're going with. I'll explain each one individually. (Got a while?)

First name: Macy

No, not after the department store, Macy Gray, or William H. Macy. We just like the name, it's a little different, it's only two syllables, easy to pronounce, and it's short (up against her gigantizoid last name). Also, when I was looking at the Nowell family tree (after we had decided on Macy), I came across a Macy Nowell who was born probably in the late 1800's/early 1900s, and was my great-grandfather's brother's daughter. How cool is that?! So it's a family name too.

Middle name: Blair

It's Mom's maiden name. Simple as that. And it's pretty.

Middle name #2 (yes, that's correct): Bunman

Pronounced boon-MON, it's Burin's mother's first name. He really wants her name to be a part of the baby's name, and his mom meant the world to him, so I can understand and oblige (I guess) :) Plus, she can just use the middle initial B, which will go for either middle name.

Last name: N.

Sooo.. there you have it.

Macy Blair Bunman N.

Lord help the poor child. ;)

That's a good name. A bit of a mouthful, but a good name. Much better than most of the ones of people I know (two couples, three Lucas-inspired names: Luke, Leia and Indiana... I am not joking), or any that I would name a kid. :)

Love the names and I'm sure she'll be adorable. Can't wait to see pictures! And you look great! So, is Macy a morning or night baby? Is she active or mellow? Believe me, pay attention now. Mine are still EXACTLY how they were inside of me. EXACTLY.

oh, she is VERY active. sometimes i swear there is a mini soccer ball in there that she's kicking around. and she moves whether it's morning, noon, or night. i have noticed though that she likes the 11 o'clock hours for some reason.. it seems that come 11am and 11pm she is moving!

Love the names! And you look great! A little swollenness (is that a word?) is expected. Hope you had a good Christmas.
