What's in A Name?

We have finally picked a first name for our little girl. London. :-) I LOVE it! We have no meaning behind it (like family name, location we've been) or anything like that. We just like it. I think it's a beautiful name. And I'm glad that Andy agreed to something that will not be SO popular. I really wanted a name that, when called in school, 13 girls wouldn't answer. ha ha So, I got that. And it's very pretty. I can't wait to meet her!!!

Now, on to the middle name. We have NO IDEA. lol It will come to us. We have time. I just wanted that first name, so that I could call her something. It's so strange to call Andy and tell him that we got this for London today, and that for London today. It still feels so weird to say it outloud. But I enjoy it, that's for sure.

London is definitely going to have to hold her own. She's going to be surrounded by BOYS! ha ha My brother has three boys. I babysit three boys. My cousin that's due in March is having a boy. My friend that's due in March is having a boy. My sister-in-law that's due in July is having a boy too! Poor little girl! At least their will be one girl cousin for her on Andy's side of the family that's her age. lol My brother does have two girls too, but they are older than London. She's definitely going to have to learn to not take any crap off the boys. But, she's a Crawford, I'm sure she'll have NO problem. lol

As everyone knows, I became a photographer so I don't have to be IN pictures. =-) However, since I am pregnant, who can go the entire pregnancy without taking pictures?? Here I am at 23 weeks. WOW, it's crazy! But I'm looking forward to meeting our baby girl.

We're Having a Girl!!!

Our doctor appointment was yesterday at 9:30am. We found out that our baby is very healthy so far, and everything seems to be developing normally. We also found out that we are having a little baby girl!!! I'm over the moon with excitement! I can just imagine all the pink and cute little dresses, and cute little bows...and...and....

Of course, everyone is excited too. My mom will be getting her first granddaughter. My Dad will have two grandchildren born this year, one a boy and one a girl...two months apart. Andy's parents are getting their first grandchild too! I think Andy is warming up to the fact that he is going to be a daddy to a GIRL! ha ha ha He's definitely thankful that the baby is healthy, and that's all that matters. =-) I know she'll have him wrapped around her little finger. She already has me wrapped around it!

This is the Week!!! (Hopefully!)

Hopefully, this is the week! We have a doctor's appointment at 9:30am on Thursday. It's our anatomy scan!!! I've waited SO very long for it! I'll be 23 weeks by then! UGH! So, on Thursday, we will see our little one. Really, it will be for the first time, since the first ultrasound was at 6 weeks, and there was only a little dot then. We will get to make sure the baby is healthy. So far so good, but this is the "BIG one". We have no reason to believe the baby isn't healthy, but you never know. We will also hopefully find out the gender on Thursday too! I so hope the baby cooperates! It is Andy's child, after all. ;-) I want a girl, super badly, but I will be over the moon if it's a boy too. I just want a healthy child, over all. I hear that little boys are closer to their momma's, so Andy will have the disadvantage there. he he But, either way, I will be very proud to be called mommy by a boy or a girl. :-)

Wedding planning, 101! Yikes! Our wedding is 9 months away, and already I am feeling the pressure. I don't want an expensive wedding, yet I would like it to be nice. But finding venues, DJ's, caterers and such is hard work! I am very nervous about my dress, since I do not plan to even try one on until after little Drewry gets here. That will be probably in June or July, which will give me only 3 or 4 months to get everything straight and settled. Ick!!!! It's really very scary. I've always figured I would have at least a year, to a year and a half to plan my wedding. Now I'm trying to pull it off in 9 months! What am I thinking? Oh yeah, there's this man, that is so wonderful, and I can't wait to marry him!!!! <3
