Just to wrap it all up....

Thank you all for your name votes. We are still undecided as I am sure most of you guessed. We still have about 17 weeks to make up our mind I guess? Although I really want to name the baby so we can start calling him by name we simply cannot nail down a name as final. All of the names you voted on are top contenders but we are still out there searching.... and searching.
The weekend has vanished... the highlights were a baptism, a farewell to our beloved Fr. Marc party ( he has been pastor at our church for 26 years), a few good yard sales, and of course what weekend would be complete without a home improvement project? Mike had to move the spigot for the hose in the backyard while working in the deck and replaced it yesterday. Because our garden is in the backyard as well as the fact that Keira is a water bug and we fill up her pool constantly we really have missed having a hose in the backyard. Hauling the hose from the front yard has been a pain in the butt! Anyways after 5 ( yes 5!!!) trips to Home Depot and Lowes the hose line is installed and NOT leaking! Woohooo Mike! Mike hates plumbing working and it always takes him longer to get it done but its done!
No weekend is ever complete either without some cleaning and organizing ( especially now that I am pregnant) We are working on emptying out the last unfinished room in our house so that it can be the new "nursery." Baby V probably won't get to inhabit the room until next spring to summer but we are getting the plans for the room together and organizing all our "stuff" that was in the room and now must be moved to the only storage area left in the house- the basement. This involved some purging ( aka donating) most of Keira's baby clothes to a crisis pregnancy center to make room for storage of baby boy clothes.
The week ahead holds some good byes and hello's for us. My 91 year old grandmother passed away after about 2 months in the hospital. Her funeral is Wednesday morning in MA and my brother Mark and his wife and kids arrive for their annual visit Thursday. They live in Europe so we only get to see them once a year so its always a good time! Summer is flying by!
