It didn't take long to put the bed together, and Lincoln wanted to be a part of that, so we all had fun as a family setting up the new "big boy bed."
And now the moment that many of you have been waiting for. There were two names that Jenn and I were volleying back and forth in our minds. They were both relatively uncommon names today (there were three Jenns in the waiting room at the OB's office on Wednesday... Jenn doesn't want that for our daughter!) and they both sat well with us. So we put it to Lincoln, and one of the names he pronounced not-so-perfectly while the other he said very articulately.
And her name shall be: Lydia Gray
We will now be referring to the arrival of our daugther as Lydia's arrival. Lincoln is already calling her by name, and we will be doing the same. This has been a bit of a different pregnancy for Jenn (not better or worse, just different), and judging by Lydia's activity level, she's developing a personality already. It remains to be seen if Lydia will be more of a schedule keeper than Lincoln... we're hoping to meet her in mid, not late, October.
