Getting Ready for baby Paisley

Yep, her name is Paisley and it always has been. When Stephen and I went on our first date, a Brad Paisley concert, I just thought Paisley was such a cute name. I always thought that if I had a little girl, her name would be Paisley. There really is no question and I am not even giving Stephen a chance. Poor guy, but he does get to pick her middle name. :) My older sister, Kortni, has 3 girls, the last one is Beck's age. She was gracious enough to give up all her girl's clothes, well, she kept the "special" ones, but look at the load we got!!! Beck was having fun jumping into the piles as I was trying to organize by size.

Stephen also got me a new camera, after I so crazily lost mine. I am so happy with my new one! A Canon Power Shot. I am only on page 12 of the instruction manual, but I've learned how to take a picture! I just couldn't wait until Christmas, I am a picture taking fool!!! And my friend, Rischel, that was gracious enough to let me borrow her spare camera was needing it back, so YEA, I have new camera! And I really like how clear that it takes pictures, and I am excited about all the capabilites that it has, just gotta figure out how to work them... This one takes a black and white picture, with only a color that I choose highlighted, now I just gotta figure out how to rotate the picture, so it's facing the right way before I post it. Hmmm....

Beck on the front porch with his Big Pumpkin
that I just had to have for only $10!! I don't
know why I was so obsessed with having a big
pumpkin this year, must be the pregnancy hormones.

This last picture is of Beck caught red-handed in the
middle of his first real mess that he made all by himself. Yes,
he's made messes before, but I have been pretty fortunate.
This one was a real, "oh wow, look at what this Baby Powder
can do" kind of mess, thanks to his cousin Alizah who
introduced him to it's possibilites the day before. And look
at that proud look on his face. Although he was a real sweetie and helped me clean up, singing his "guardar, guardar" clean up song in Spanish that whole time.

I forgot about Paisley! Congrats on all the clothes! Remember to share when Jax gets a baby sis. Also you might have to give some of them up if Brit's turns out to be a girl also.
Beck is so cute, even in the big mess. I hope you talk about me to him, so he doesn't forget who Aunt Jake and Uncle Chad are!

You're so lucky that you got all those clothes from Kortni. Did you get them all organized? I don't think I would have even tried! I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

I was just telling Ryan I knew that you would name your baby girl Paisley. So glad you love your new camera. You inspire me, I need to read up on how to use mine. Happy thanksgiving!
