Baby Drew Update

I think that we have finally decided on a name for Baby Boy #2..... da da da da da da da dum.... (that was supposed to be a drum roll).... Andrew Michael Carpenter. We will call him Drew, though. What do you think? I think that we are about 95% sure that will be his name. You may want to hold off on the monogramming, though. I reserve the right to change my mind. :)

I went to my 25 week appointment today. I can't even tell you how much I love my doctor. He's a kind, Christian, family man. I am so grateful to have found him. He is funny and great about answering all of my questions. But, the best part about him is that he does a sonogram at every appointment. I'm not quite sure why, but that is his preference. So, as of today, I have seen this sweet little pumpkin 8 times!!! Each time he just gets more precious. Today Clayton and Wade went with me to my appointment. Clayton gets so excited about hearing the baby's heartbeat. Today Wade held him up right next to the screen and he waved his little hand as hard as he could. Then he looked disappointed and said, "He's not waving back at me." My doctor quickly found Drew's little hand and said, "Look, there's his hand and he is waving back." Clayton grinned really big and was perfectly content.

We also saw the very prominent boy parts again - no doubt about that one! My doctor said, "You can go right ahead and paint the room. I'm sure about this one." Wade has been itching to start on the nursery, so I am sure that he will be painting by the end of the week. :) We bought Baby Safari bedding - isn't it cute?




Wade is planning another mural, so stay tuned for pictures of the room...

The one thing about this baby that I just cannot get over is how much he moves and kicks. He is a crazy man! I could feel him kicking at 17 weeks (I didn't feel Clayton until 20-21 weeks) and Wade could feel him kicking at 20 weeks (he didn't feel Clayton until 23 weeks). Today at my appointment, Drew was moving around like crazy in the waiting room. Wade said, "Oh my gosh, you can see your shirt moving!" So weird...

Ditto on what Kati said.

The safari theme is super cute. A hammock in the room would also be cool. You know, for me. :)

Love the bedding. Super cute! And Drew was a top pick of ours for Jacob (but it was just going to be Drew, not Andrew).

Love the name and the bedding! We can't wait to meet baby Drew! I was at Target today and I had to practically tie my hands behind my back so I didn't buy up all the cute baby stuff!
PS: I will try to figure out the sitemeter and if I need help I will let you know.

Love the name. Of course, I would love the name even if he was named Blues Clues! Clayton's wave to Drew is priceless. I love those two little guys.
