(getting ideas for Carly’s brilliant-beyond-brilliant project this October!)
This week we have a meeting going on at our church. Things are crazy around my house. I scored about 50 boxes that other day behind a Charming Charlie’s they are opening around the corner (another obsession of mine), and the packing was scheduled to commence this past Monday… in my head. That is until I realized the packing would have to wait. This meeting is great, and lasts all week so there really is zero time for packing. Oh well.
Packing. Did I mention we are trying to move soon? House possibly going up for sale in October… baby due in late January/ early February. A wedding in New York next weekend.
Life is nutso. I promise everytime we move, I’m pregnant. All three times.
We have done it (with much loved and adored and very much appreciated help) two times, so we can do this again. We just need to move. We are not sure where, but my heart wants to be in the country. Somewhere quiet, inspiring, peaceful.
In spite of this crazy week, my friend Amanda reminded me about the Lantern Release next month. We finally arranged an event on facebook, so be sure to check it out here. Even if you live a gazillion miles from Texas you can still be involved :)
This Lantern Release is not on any special day, just a day to get together with other loss mamas, and celebrate our childrens’ lives together.
In other baby-related news, just about everyday I feel her move now. Some days stronger than others. And I think she likes Jalapeno chips, because she tends to kick enough for me to feel her move when I eat them.
Someone suggested I find a nickname for her, and I have been thinking a lot on it. The hard part about it is, her name has a nickname built into it, so I don’t want this nickname to stick, which I am afraid it might but it would help so much when writing about her :)
I never had a nickname for Jenna, but she did get called Angel a lot. Even though I don’t fully agree with calling babies and children in Heaven angels, I love the reference because she is and was absolutely perfect.
Of course Joseph’s nickname is Bubby.
And this new baby’s nickname will be Peach. For the sake of blogging and writing about her until she gets here anyway. Her nickname is in no way related to her real name, it’s just something I thought up since I was quickly losing the nickname battle against names like “sweet pea” and “daisy”.
You would think I have no imagination!
I will tell you that once we settle into our new place, I am so drawn to peach and grey for her nursery colors (inspired by this on Pinterest). Honestly I am so proud of myself for even thinking that far ahead. With Bubby I nearly scolded myself for even thinking of anything nursery-related. Of course, going out and actually buying it is a whole different story.
