No news here...

I've been meaning to post for a while now. Things are uneventful here so far, and I'm guessing that at least the next couple of weeks will be much the same. I have no expectation of going early, but that would be fine with me...I am SO ready!! I do have a couple of things to share, though...

We have a name. It is not a family name, as our others have been. But I take full credit or blame, whichever the case may be, since Jared decided OF HIS OWN FREE WILL, with no prompting from me, that the mommy who has carried his FIVE children should have full rights to this one final name. After months of "How about...?" "No" "Well, then how about...?" "No" back and forth, a decision was made. And since some sweet friends from church had a shower for me tonight...

...we've now officially committed to the name, because LOOK, we have embroidered burp cloths!

And monogrammed blankets and bath towels!

So here's the monogram...

Any guesses??? I know, the suspense is killing you...

Luke is the perfect name! Hang in there, you are just days away from meeting your blueberry-Luke. Can't wait to hear all about his grand entrance into the world. He is one blessed baby.
btw: what beautiful friends you have! I'm so glad they were able to shower you with lots of goodies.

LOVE the name Luke. I have two cousins who named their boys that. Of course, I prefer Blueberry but will settle for Luke. Praying for you friend and looking forward to meeting your little guy.

Your friends are incredible! They have been through a lot with you and now have showered you with more love...and gifts! I am forever grateful for them (the friends, not the gifts) :)

I cannot wait to hold our little Luke. I really love his name! You did a great job, Melanie! (Noah and I secretly know that his middle name is really "Skywalker", but we won't tell anyone... :)

I love you!
