- other than my problem hip (which i've nicknamed willow because it makes me hobble like the character from the movie) i've been feeling pretty great. some heartburn, but nothing too terrible. i've even managed to eat some meat in the last few weeks - i chowed down a big ol' hamburger from the restaurant the other day and it was seriously the best thing i'd tasted in weeks. chicken is still a little iffy, unless its covered in bbq sauce. but no other real cravings.
- speaking of, have i mentioned we named the baby? my memory isn't great. in any case, his name is everett knox. no particular story behind it - nate and i have always liked the name everett (a character in one of our very favorite movies is named everett) and that has been the 'boy' name since day one. i was having trouble committing to the name though because we just weren't finding a middle name that we loved that went well with it. then my super awesome friend heather mentioned the name knox to me (which i had LOVED when i was pregnant with cash but nate vetoed so i had forgotten about it) and it all just came together. i texted nate, what do you think of everett knox? he replied, oh my gosh, i love it! and there it was. our boy, named via text message.
- this boy is quite the active little monkey. his favorite time to party is at night when i'm trying to sleep, of course. cash has managed to still never be patient enough to feel him kick. i don't think its ever going to happen, honestly. still haven't felt him hiccup but i'm sure it's only a matter of time.
