announcing NAMES!! (plus cake pops pics!)

Happy Easter!!  I hope you're enjoying this meaningful weekend as we celebrate our Risen Lord!  As is the norm for holidays with us, we have a  weekend of family and fun! It can be hectic at times, but I'm so grateful that we have 3 different sets of family all in the houston area that we are close with and I wouldn't change it!

I'm sorry to those of you who have been waiting on the announcement....we've had our names set for weeks now, but I just keep forgetting to post it up here!  So here we go (keep any negative comments to yourself please....all 3 have special meanings to us and we aren't going back now! :))

Londyn Grace
Layton Jack
Lance Craig

Also, i've been slacking on the stats updates for a few weeks, so here is another:

how far along?  19 weeks
how are you measuring?  26 weeks
size of babies?  about 8 ounces, and 6 inches long each
total weight gain  +16 pounds
stretch marks? No, not yet!! 
sleep?  still not good :(   I even bought a good pregnancy pillow (the preggle), and it almost stressed me out more than helped b/c i couldn't find a good position with all the options!
maternity clothes?  oh yes!
 best moment this week?  joining our church!  Since we moved to katy, we had visited quite a few and never settled on one until this year. we fell in love with Grace Fellowship UMC, and attended the membership class on Sunday to make it official!  God definitely showed us exactly where he wanted us to be, and I'm so thankful!
movement?   YES!  all the flutters started last week!  No kicks yet, just the fizzy feeling!
food cravings? anything really~ lots of meat especially! mom made us a yummy chicken casserole midweek, and that really hit the spot
what i miss:    getting to ride the jet skis and boat today at the lake :(
what I'm looking forward to:  getting the nursery furniture delivered this week!  mom and dad were so sweet to get the entire room for us, and i can't wait to see it all set up!
how are you feeling?  can't complain :) 
Okay, so Wednesday I promised you pictures of the adorable cake pops one of my girl's moms made for my class shower.  I am SO SO blessed by my precious kiddos!!  Here's just a peek:



  1. The names are wonderful, Lauren.

    Congratulations to you and Timmy! I know you will be a wonderful mother.

  2. The names sound great! Congratulations again!

    Would like to know the special meanings when we meet next time!
