ugh.

Yeah. So I caught it. I'm sick AGAIN. I'm super tired. I'm congested. I never finished being congested from the first bug. I don't know if it's allergies. Hard to ever know. I never used to have them but allergies can come whenever they want so it could have been/could be allergies for all I know.

Sam is starting to finally kick his second cold. It's been a week. Unfortunately, his cold made his appetite very low, and about all he would eat was fruit. And we were trying to push fluids so he drank too much juice. So now he has terrible diarrhea. So that's been FUN. for everyone. At least Aaron and I are thrown back into the mix of cleaning messes from bodily fluids and running constant loads of laundry. We'll be doing that in a month anyway so I guess this is a crash course.

We're sort of ready for the new guy. Sort of not. Still probably have a few weeks to go and I think we'll be ready for him when he arrives. I already am ready in many ways, and can't be ready in many other ways.

Ok. I'm totally tired. Gonna throw on a comfort movie and try to sleep propped up on the couch.

By the way -- I got some breathe right strips (store knock off) and they are awful. Am I just not using them right? Does anyone use these? I have been sleeping with a cough drop in my mouth for like three weeks now and I know that is not a wise move. Sigh.

Hi Liz,

Hope you are feeling better now. It's exciting to hear you are so close to your due date. I wanted to remind you to get pictures of yourself before you deliver, if you haven't already. Somehow pictures always seem to take a back seat after 'the first time around.'

Have you settled on names yet for the new little guy? Awhile ago you ask for suggestions and I thought of Felix, Isaac, or Ezra. Kinda odd, but I like them.

Look forward to seeing your little baby son.

Sending good wishes and love.

yes, already feeling a huge discrepancy in photos. Got some Liz poses a few weeks ago.

The first name is 90% William (Sam's pick a few months ago, grown on us) and now we have been struggling to come up with the middle name. Felix is one of many names on that list!

Sam & William together brings new meaning to Herman's Hermits' "Henry VIII" lyrics.

William is very nice. How did Sam come up with that name?

Oh, who wanted to be married to the widow next door anyway? There must be a reason she got married so many times :)

Every once in a while we would ask Sam what we should name the monkey. He picked "polo monkey" once (was probably "pillow monkey or play-doh monkey"). After that I would say... "should we name baby brother James?... should we name baby brother Felix?" etc etc. At William he immediately said "yeah!!!" and since then was adamant about the name William! So funny. He doesn't know any Williams either.
