If you don't already know, I am a HUGE Ken Griffey Jr. fan!! And I just found out that he signed a 1 year contract with the Mariners! It's most likely his final season, and I am SO excited that he'll spend it in Seattle! Needless to say, we'll be at a LOT of games this year!!

What's in a name....

A lot of good this book does!
We are having a REALLY hard time deciding on a name this time, I don't know what it is.... maybe the pressure of making sure your kid isn't made fun of for the rest of his life, or that he won't HATE his name, or that Jonathan and I differ quite a bit in our taste in names! (At this rate I'm not sure if we'll be able to have any more kids, for fear of not being able to come up with a name.) And if any of you have ever MET Jonathan you know he's not the most serious person in the world when it comes to decisions like these, which I, of course, think are life or death (i AM pregnant! I'm allowed irrational emotions). So he comes up with the most RIDICULOUS names, and trys for the next half hour to convince me that it's the perfect name for our child, when really he doesn't even like the name, he just likes to mess with me.... so of course nothing gets accomplished. (it's usually good for a laugh later though...much later). So this is my dilemma and I wouldn't mind some suggestions, maybe it will trigger something in my brain!
ps. a couple names that I like are.... Adam & Max ..... let me know what you think!

Coming to you from....

MY HOUSE!! Can you believe it!! I guess I should've complained a little sooner if I knew that was all it would take to get the internet! What a great guy huh!? We just got it today and Jonathan has been on it WAY more than I have already.... that will soon change of course! :o) Just thought I would share the exciting news, more to come soon... and more frequently!

OK, I know I've been the lamest blogger EVER lately... but it is seriously hard without the Internet, I know everyone says that is a lame excuse, but it IS reality! SO I thought we could all get together and send Jonathan some "encouraging" emails, texts, or phone calls about how really important it is for us to get the Internet.... and if it works I promise I will be the best blogger and commenter ever! Please let me know if you need his email or phone number, I'd be HAPPY to give it out! :o)

(don't let that innocent looking face fool you, he is to blame!)
