Logan R

You've probably wondered what the R stands for


Actually it does but his legal name is Logan R Young. Yes, just the initial. My Aunt Shirley has just the letter A for her middle name and that's what gave me the idea.

Logan's maternal grandfather is Roger, his paternal grandfather is Randy and his daddy is Randy. (Yes, in case you didn't know - Jeff's first name IS Randy) So I thought to honer 3 great men in his life we'd not try to choose and just use the initial R. It's something he'll love or hate later but I thought it was fun and different to do it that way. (It's actually kind of Ciara's idea).

So now we have:

Ryan Jeff (Jeff for his dad)
Kevin Leith (Leith for my dad's dad)
Brenna (sorry, no middle name for girls. I didn't get one either)
Logan R (for grandfathers,dad)

The first names have no family significance but we found out that Ryan and Kevin are Irish Gaelic so that's where we looked for Brenna's name and Logan's.
Ryan means "little king" which he is
Kevin means "handsome" which I think he is
Brenna means "raven-haired beauty" WHOOPS! She's a strawberry blond
Logan means "little hollow". not sure how that applies.

So there you go, a little history on our kids names.

pics of Logan

Our new family. Wow, there's no more room on the bed!

Brenna and Logan 18 months and 9 days apart. Yeah, I'm in for a rollercoaster ride with these 2. =) She's ignored Logan for the most part. She does love to bring his binkie to him when he cries.

Mad Logan

Kevin and Logan

Ryan and Logan. Can you tell he's excited to be a big brother again.

Brenna trying to convince us that she's still the baby in the family.

Still waiting...

and I thought today would be it. Our wedding anniversary is tomorrow so maybe that'll be the day. Jeff would be so happy. He's always regretted not waiting a week to marry me on Valentine's Day so he could kill 2 birds with 1 stone. And now if I have the baby tomorrow that's what we'll do. haha Birthday party on wedding anniversary, wedding anniversary on Valentines. I don't care if it means I can have a baby tomorrow!

I removed the baby ticker on the right because it was too depressing to see that my baby should already be here.

So let's get the poll going...

Vote for what you think we are having on the right.

I think it's a girl: this pregnancy feels just like Brenna's. I was more sick with the boys.

Jeff thinks it's a boy: he's pretty sure he saw something on the ultrasound (even though we told the tech to not tell us) and he feels experienced since we've had two boys.

ok, ok, I have to add that I thought I saw something too, so I really will be surprised with what we have.

1 day left

So despite my supposed apathy I really do want this baby here. The last week is always so hard. Every contraction makes me think "is this it and I get excited?" I went in for a non-stress test yesterday and everything checked out. It watches the baby's heartbeat and my contractions and basically checks that the placenta is still functioning well. Next appointment is set up for Tuesday. Hope I miss it!
