Do you ever notice how loud complete silence is?
It may be an oh so very rare occurrence around here, but on occasion when Hubby is out of town and I manage to survive bedtime routine with the kids and still have some dignity left, I'll plop down with said dignity like a sack of potatoes... no, like a bowl full of jelly... no, oh I don't know what. My brain is too darn shot to think of anything clever right now.
But I'll plop down to take a breather and everything is so quiet, that the utter stillness and silence is like a roaring in my ears.
It can be quite deafening.
I should probably take the time to sleep or do something useful, yet at the end of the day the last thing I have any desire to do is something productive or useful, that includes sleep.
Now that I'm down to the last two months of this pregnancy I can't sleep half the time anyway. Insomnia and back pain make terrible bedfellows you know.
Still, I have to laugh. Every time it's Joseph's turn to say the family prayer, he always asks that the baby will "come out soon". I'm trying really hard not to agree with that for another five to six weeks at least.
The kids are constantly asking if it's November yet, or if it's time for the baby to come out. They are even kind enough to mention that my belly is getting "pretty big"!
At almost 32 weeks now I had someone say to me just the other day that I don't look like I could go another two months.
Ouch. As if I didn't feel huge enough as it is!
Oh hey, I think you dropped something... no wait, that was just my self-esteem hitting the floor. LOL!
But anyway, this poor little guy still has no name. We can't seem to agree on one! My top pick right now is "Joshua". Not that I'm intentionally picking "J" names. Joseph and Jacob were not collaborated in any way. But don't they sound good with "Joshua"?
Besides, it will help keep everyone confused, even me. Haha!
Hubby's hang-up with the name is that it's my oldest brother's name as well as his cousin's name. But at this point, I don't care! With so many dang boys on both sides of our family I've about given up on not over-lapping. And since we like more traditional names, options are getting limited.
Jacob really wants us to name him "Hunter".
Hubby did suggest "Jefferson", and the name has grown on me, but I'm not sure I'd want everyone shortening it to "Jeff", which I feel sure they would.
So, any thoughts? Any name suggestions? Because at this point, I am at a loss.
Maybe we should just call him "Guy".
