Well - thanks again for all your baby naming help. If you ever want a good list, ask Marianne! And thanks for all the family name ideas.
I also had a suggestion from Cara last time to email Swistle. I had never heard of her before but she does a blog just for people who need baby naming help.
So I did it - and she blogged about it today! And guess what - I think we have a name! (If you want to know the name, and you won't tell me you hate it, email me.)
Here is her post.

Because we still don't have a name for the baby. I've got a long list of 1 syllable names, and nothing to go with them. So if you would be so lovely as to leave your list of favorite 2 or 3 syllable boy names in the comments, I would really appreciate it.
If you are related to me - and you know some good family names - please leave those in the comments as well.
I've never been this unprepared with a name and I'm starting to freak out a tiny bit. Just a tiny bit.

So I started out making one quilt, not loving it, and making an entirely different quilt. All that really matters is that I've finished it in plenty of time before the baby gets here. (I only have 4 - 5 weeks!)

Living here has never really been my first choice. But I love it in the fall when we can drive up to the mountains and see the leaves turning.
We usually try to get in a drive through the fall leaves before it gets too cold. I don't even remember if we went last year, since my fall was filled with other things. (For an entire history of what was keeping me down, click here). I did find photos from 2 years ago. You can look at them here.
This time we went up to Park City and went for a short hike. It was gorgeous! And I think the boys loved it. Luke especially loves going "on the mountain" and he's always disappointed if we just drive and don't get out and walk a bit.
Charlie wanted me to take a photo of him skipping rocks on the road. This is right at the beginning.
Sam wanted me to take a picture of him with every flower, leaf, rock, and piece of bark he picked up.
This is the pocket of Charlie's cargo shorts, which he filled with rocks at the beginning. He dumped them right at the end, telling me how it was making it harder to walk with them in his pocket.
Can you tell how dirty Luke's face is in this photo? He kept tripping and falling (but no crying) and it was quite dusty. He was a mess when we were finally done.

So Dan had a conference in San Diego and wanted me to go with him. It was great because the company paid for everything except my plane ticket (which we had enough miles for.) We may have spent a bit more on food than the per diem, but mostly it was a free trip. Dan's mom stayed with the boys since she was already out here for the baptism. Thanks Anabel!
Can I just tell you how much I love the ocean? As soon as we got off the plane it smelled SO good. It's breezy, and not too hot, and only sometimes sunny. I really love it. It is my perfect place to live.
This was a huge spider we found. I think he was building his web. He was a tad bigger than the size of my thumb (the top part, above the joint.) I didn't want to get my thumb in there to show you, in case he decided to jump on it.
