That Creepy Spinning Baby....

Okay, so I know the creepy spinning baby to the right says 55 days until my due date. Technically, that's correct. Sort of. My delivery date, however, is different. A whole 9 days earlier (yay!). Hey, 9 days to a pregnant woman means a LOT at this point. So, we're looking at 46 days. I can make it.

So yes, we will be delivering on..... February 29th! A leap day baby. I can hardly wait to hold this squirmy little baby in my arms (and not my belly). We have decided that, what with finding out we are having yet ANOTHER boy (I was so looking forward to making some cute little dresses), that this little man will be named Zachary William. William was my great grandfather's name, though he usually went by the name Glenn. I never did think to ask why, I should do that one of these days. Anyway, he was always an important part of most of my summers, and many holidays as well. We were both tall and gangly, with the same double joints, and I was the one who usually got to share his recliner so that I could cuddle up with him. I've been wanting to use the name for a while, but could never seem to come up with something to go along with it. I'm a firm believer in the power of names, not only in their definitions, but in the meaning they hold for us as well. Zachary means "God has remembered". William means "Strong-willed warrior". Oh boy, this is going to be fun. I'm wondering if I should rethink the "strong-willed" part ;) But, Granddad was always so sweet and even tempered, I'm hoping for that part of his personality to come through.
