The Diary of Mrs. S

Thursday, September 28, 2006

I don't really care. Sue me.

We don't watch football. Mr. S is a golfer. But, there is a golf channel.......well, he never makes me suffer through that. He may watch it when I'm not home though.

Remember this list for 2006. Well, I got to thinking about it the other day. Let's start from the top: I passed Organic Chemistry II without any problems. I excitedly celebrated my 5 year wedding anniversay with a diamond band to go with it. Two lines did appear on the stick for both me and my sister! No new health issues with my parents. I think my little brother is on track for a better year. I did get "the letter" from UT accepting me (contingent upon me raising my PCAT score). All the preggos I knew gave birth to perfect little babies. I have starting worrying less....well, that's still a work in progress. The horribly pink master bathroom is now a soothing, peaceful blue color. Lastly, so far, I'm healthy still as well.

This is the bedding I picked out this past weekend for baby girl.

These are wall hangings that I will hang in the room.

This is what Dave picked out! I couldn't tell him no. This is going to be one spoiled Daddy's girl.

What is in a name?

I NEED HELP! Seriously. I am stuck with no girl name. As a girl, I'm supposed to have already planned out my little girl's name, right? Well, not me. We had a boy name. Not that we wanted one over the other, we just only had a boy name. So, people I need your help. I would like to ask for suggestions, but first here are some criteria:

1. It can't be Hannah as it rhymes with Jana. Too bad because I love the name.
2. It can't be too trendy. I'm not such a fan of Emma, Madison, etc. Just not me.
3. It can't be too unique as I hated my name growing up, not that it is so unique but there was never anything with Jana on it, and that was important to me.
4. I would like the middle name to be Michelle, so it has to flow with that.
5. You can't be mad if you suggest a name that you would want to actually use and I end up using it, so be willing to give it up.

Am I being too picky here? The way I see it. I want a name that can be pronounced without question. I hate that I am called Janet, Janice, Dana, Gina, Jenna, etc..... I hate it, hate it, hate it!!!! So, I kinda have an issue with names, forgive me.

Honestly, I would like suggestions. so come out of the woodwork and gimme some names!!

Thought for the Day

I kissed my husband off to golf this morning at 7 am and attempted to go back to sleep. Oh, how I enjoy my Sunday sleep-ins. So, snuggled back into bed, I lay with my eyes closed listening to the quiet and the occasional bird chirping outside. And, to my stomach growling from hunger. I'm a breakfast person and usually fix something to eat before anything else, so the desire to eat was the devil on one shoulder and the cozy bed was the angel on the other. The devil won. At 7:30 in the morning, I really can't think clearly, so I let my stomach take over. I figured I would eat and go back to sleep. Well, I did go back to bed, but Baby S was up, therefore so was I. I either have a soccer star or a junior boxer to look forward to. And as I lay there watching and feeling my stomach bounce around, I started thinking. Thinking about how cool this is and how frightening it is all at the same time. I mean, there is a human being inside of me......this little lightbulb moment came about a week ago when I felt movement for the first time. Of course, I knew I was going to have a baby, but to me, it was still so surreal.

I am having to deal with my bulging belly, something that is rather difficult for me personally. I don't want to sound pretentious, but I've always been a petite person who, though never had to work at being thin, or even thought too much about it for that matter. It was just who I was. Yes, I got tired of people saying "You're so little", etc. It really isn't easy being small either. It makes shopping very frustrating. But, at the same time, I liked being a size 1.

And though I do not regret my decision to have a baby, I do have concerns for afterward. Will I be able to get back down to my pre-baby size? Will my body never really be the same? I've never been one to exercise, so doing that after a baby is a totally new concept to me.
Seeing how I'm not really fond of change and I've never been confident about my body, I hope you can understand my feelings. While it is vain and insignificant to the overall picture, I can't help but wonder. I have never been one to make sure every hair has it's place and that my nose is powdered, believe me. So, why do I care now? I'm not worried about what Mr. S is going to think. That's the least of my concern. Our relationship is stronger than that.

What am I afraid of?
