It's Been A While...

I knew I hadn't been on for a while but 3 weeks! Thank goodness someone pointed it out to me or I would have totally abandoned you all! (Thanks Kari!)

Not a whole lot out of the ordinary has been going on here in that time. I've been shopping for the baby with all the great clearance sales going on. Alex and I both got new phones, mine is an iPhone and I'm addicted to it. I need a 12 step program I think. Paige is doing great in preschool and her 5th birthday is coming up fast!

Other then that, the great baby name debate has been raging, and though we initially thought that we had the perfect name in Reagan, it turns out neither Alex of I really felt like it was her name. So the search began again....and one night while rattling off names I mention Layla, which Alex disliked right away. From it though, he said Ayla, same name with no 'L' - and so no (or for now I guess I should say with our history of name changes!) the babies name is Ayla Violet.

It's gotten mixed reviews, and that's fine. No one is going to like every name we choose and in the end we realize this is our baby and we can name her "Cheesecake" if we wanted to and no one could do anything about it.

On top of that I have been looking for the perfect baby announcement layout...here's some of the current front runners, we really like the ones that focus more on the photos - after all, everyone wants to see the baby!! (and as always, I'm still making announcements and cards so if you need something....I'm here!)


What do you think? We're still looking of course!!! I promise not to leave for so long this next time! :0)

I like that name! We are in the same boat, can't find anything that fits just right with us :)

I think it's a nice name!

For the announcement, I like the first one best.

Glad to see you back in the blog world!! I like the name, its differnt, and Im all for different names. Out of the announcements you posted the first and last ones are my fav!! Hope all is well! and P.S. Im jealous of your iphone! I so wanted one too and when I went to get a new ohone for Valentine's, the girl at our service store said they didnt carry them anymore and went on and on about how bad of a phone they are. Im still disappointed I listened to her, even thought the phone I did get I love!
