Once Again

Look how cute Mia and her Mommy and Daddy are!

I was right! Not pregnant. Got my period a couple of days before John and I went to Anaheim for an Angels game. I was not surprised, but I was disappointed. I am very ready for all of it to happen and, although we're only on our third month, I am getting impatient. Surprise, surprise. Me? Impatient? Never!

Still, the fact that I was not preganant allowed me to have some apple martinis after the game, which Erin, JB and Sara (as well as Tom) heard about. I also made my first trip to Hooters, which was uneventful. But I think I need to go again and get those fried pickles which I really enjoyed. And all of this happened before 7:00 p.m. It was an early night. =)

This week began the third round of trying. Looking for the LH surge again. I have a good feeling about this month, but I don't want to jinx myself, so we'll stop there.

I found out that another friend of mine, Emily (roommate and teammate at Rhodes) is pregnant with her first child. They had been trying for 2 years! So good for them! I am really happy for her because I know she always wanted to have kids. And now she will have one that has a birthday very close to hers in February. Plus, a friend from high school's wife is due in March. So those are a couple more that I can add to my seemingly never-ending list.

John and I are heading to Dallas in a few weeks for Noel's shower. John will be doing the golfing thing with the guys. We are both really excited. And we get to meet Mikey for the first time. I can't wait. Also that weekend is when my next period is due, so I might be a little anxious. We will see what happens.
I need to keep track of names that I have decided John and I should consider for our kids. I'm sure I'm forgetting one girl's name, but I can't think of it right now. I like the name Ryann and Emerson for a girl, but John doesn't. Here is what we (actually I) have so far (John still claims if we have a boy we're going to name it Troy Switzer - Not going to happen):
Rachel Laura/Harper
Maya Laura/Harper
Danielle Laura/Harper
Claire Harper
Boys (Ryan after Nolan Ryan, Brett after George Brett - my husband is crazy)
Justin Ryan/Harper
Jacob (Jake) Ryan/Harper
Jackson Ryan/Harper
Brett Harper
