Just Checking In...

I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  My beautiful husband has confiscated my computer and I get VERY limited time on it these days.  You see, his computer has been freaking out and he finally had to send it in for an overhaul, thus leaving him without a computer for 7-10 business days.  Because his life revolves around his computer, he stole mine and has been using it for work.  

(You should have seen him on Sunday with my white MacBook on his piano complete with my name written across the top of the lid with rhinestones.  It looked kinda silly but I found it completely endearing.)

Anyway....I have it for the next few minutes, so I thought I'd check in and say hello.  Hi.  Tonight is the Big Game.  I am decked out in my OSU jersey.  I do that only to make my husband smile.  He loves to see me in clothing that announces my support of his beloved Ohio sports teams.  (If I wear the shirt or hat, then sometimes I can get out of having to watch the game itself.)  We have friends who are LSU fans that are coming over for dinner and to watch the game with us.  It should be fun.  We're having tacos.  Mmmmm... 

In other household news... Natalie and I have started school again after a semester off.  She is doing very well and I'm ok.  I'm sure I will talk more about things as we progress but I'm too tired right now to say any more about it.  

Baby is good.  I'm 21 weeks along and getting bigger every day.  That's a good thing but I have to say that after everything last year, it feels really weird to be pregnant.  It's been four years since I've had a belly.  I'm starting to be forced into maternity clothes.  Ugh!  I hate 'em!  So far it's only been the pants and jeans that have to be maternity.  I can still get away with regular shirts most days.  Besides, maternity shirts are still big tents even though I do have a little more than just a bump these days.  I haven't taken any pictures of my belly lately, so I promise to do that soon.  I know you are all dying to see me grow big as a house!  

You would all be proud.  We have had two semi-serious discussions about what to name this man-child that is currently kicking me like crazy.  I say semi-serious because we're still NO WHERE NEAR choosing a name.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.  We have some guidelines... 
1. Must be 2 syllables or more (with a last name like Ball--it's just a necessity, well to me it is.) 
2. Must not be horribly common or trendy.  As much as I love the names Aidan, Carter, and Jackson, I know too many of them to use them myself.  
3. Must not be so out there that it causes people to wonder what the heck those weird parents were thinking.  Remember our firstborn is Natalie.  It's a common name that no one wonders about but not so common that there will be five Natalies in her graduating class.  
So there you go... HELP US!!!

I think that's all for now.  I have to go to the store and get more stuff for tacos.  I'm really too tired, but alas I have to go anyway.  Ooooo... I just asked my Beefcake to go and he said yes.  Now I can be lazy for a bit longer.  What a man, what a man, what a mighty good man!!!

Oh and by the one guessed what my picture of the week was.


  1. Okay....I have to give some good thought to the baby name question. I totally know what your picture of the week is though. I bet it's your bellybutton! If it's not, then I'm going to feel really silly. But seriously, doesn't it look like a bellybutton? Well anyway...that's my guess. I'll get back to you about baby names. Love you lots!!! :)

  2. that's what I thought...your of my friend's just named her baby Callan.. ca-(as in cat) and lin. I really liked was pretty unique but the meaning is great *powerful in battle* Man he can be a power ball! HA! Just Joking! Anyway...I'll throw some more at ya later!

  3. it is my belly button! You guys are good!

  4. It's good to hear from you. I have been neglecting my blog since before Christmas because we've been so busy. Holiday's are always great, but it feels nice to be back into a routine again. Hmmmm...I'll have to think of some names...

  5. I am glad to hear your pregnancy is going well. I like the names Elijah and Malachi. Ya know, I was 21 weeks when I found out I was having twins. What fun. Take care!
