8 months!

  32 weeks....
and I still have NO IDEA what to name this baby!


















On the plus side, the end is near. I can't wait to be able to breathe, bend over, and kick my tums habit. I tried super hard to only gain the 'suggested' amount of weight this time...and lets just say - as long as I dont gain another pound in the next 5-8 weeks, that I met that goal! Ha! Its so not going to happen. At least Im off the buffalo wings. For a while there I was gaining at least 10 pounds a month thanks to my deep fryer. Thankfully I broke up with him, and went through a broccoli and rice craving. And lately its been tuna sandwiches with tons of dill pickles. 

You know what Im really craving though? An early delivery! and ok, because you all know Im THIS shallow - a baby with lots of dark hair :) and a small nose...and a tiny head and body that painlessly appears from out of nowhere. Like an adoption :) Im scared about my delivery because last time went so smooth and fast and I didnt even feel a contraction! The joke has been this baby is coming out sideways to punish me for the easy pregnancy! Lets hope not! 

We are getting really excited. Brother is super active - much more than Brigitte was. He is kicking constantly and making sleep extra hard to come by. No complaints though - I know as soon as hes out Im going to be missing these days of luxury!


For pete's sakes - someone name this baby!

You have got to be the cutest pregnant lady ever!! Seriously! Your tummy is smaller than my postpartum one :(

Brandon & Amber said...

You look so cute! I can't wait to see your cute little boy. :)

megan&steve said...

You look awesome & your slim arms are letting me know that you haven't gained all the weight you think you have :)
what are Gabes ideas for baby boy names? Or Jaynas, since she probably won't have a little man?

Mitzi said...

You are looking good. I think you should just name him baby boy. Done. J/K. Good luck seriously, I can't wait to find out what you guys are going to agree on. I'm in total suspense.

stadia said...

I think Gabe jr has a nice ring to it.

Designing Woman said...

Well, I have no suggests, as far as names. You'll probably pull something amazing out of left field at the last second.

Thanks for the bump pics, I can't believe you're 8 months already...you're pregnancy has gone by so fast for me :)

Anna Beal said...

More active than little B?? Oh madness, you poor thing. You could name hime Otto Moe....sorry I just have to laugh about that one when you put Beal on the end. And by the way, I have to agree with everyone on your tinyness! I wasn't even that small with my first. Can't wait for him to come :)

amy said...

You look so great!! I cannot believe you are so close. Best of luck to you with the delivery. You'll do awesome, I'm sure. Can't wait to hear what you name the little guy.

jayna said...

You mean to say, "It took 32 weeks for me to finally look a little pregnant!"

And seriously...I'm going to have to agree with Stadia....She makes a persuasive argument for Gabe Jr.

Julia & Darren said...

wow I can't believe 8 months already! You look great! Here's some boy names that I LOVED, but will probably never get to use so I will share :)

Tayvn
Trevyn
Camden
Easton
Braden
Bridger
Jarren or Jaron
Caden
Keegan

let me know if you want any more idea's! I think you should make a list, and pick in the hopsital after he is born :)

Sherry Bobbins said...

you are the cutest pgreo woman ever! I totally agree with Jayna's comment... Gabe Jr. it is. NOT! You know what name I love....

Shelley said...

His name is Frank. ;)

kecia said...

you look SOOO adorable! HOw exciting that it is getting close!!

Heather and Dave said...

You look amazing and you WILL have a little itty bitty boy with a cute small head and body - the 2nd time around goes much quicker, so since you had it easy breezy with Brigitte, you better believe it'll be even sweeter this time. And it'll be here before you KNOW IT!! YAY! I love the name Andrew, and think Andrew Beal is cute...maybe even Andrew Gabe Beal? Since our kiddos are going to get married, and I'll be the mother-in-law, it only makes sense that I help name your child ;)

Tiffany said...

I vote for Barthalameux. It goes with the French "B" theme.
I don't believe you... I know you had boy names for days with Brigitte! Good luck :)

Mimi said...

If that is you at 32 weeks... my baby could eat your baby for lunch! ;-)

You are TINY!! I just took a few maternity pictures, but don't think I will be posting them now. I look like I'm wearing three babies compared to you.

I am so excited for you guys... sorry you are struggling with the name situation too! Naming someone is sooo much responsibility- it's their identity forever!

Ok- onto the baby shower... WOAH MOMA!! You are so stinkin fancy!!
You sewed those? At 32 weeks pregnant?? I can barely keep my family fed..kudos! The shower looked like tons of fun- and made me a little exhausted :-) The ladies that threw the party need some kind of award for sure!!
