Babies in waiting

Every Sunday for a few months I've turned to Jim and said, "hey, I'm _ weeks pregnant today" and he gives me a high five. It was not intentional, but we eased into it as a routine.
On Sunday Willa was in the bathtub and we were standing outside the bathroom door watching her float on her back.
"Hey, I'm 22 weeks pregnant today."
He got a little pale and I noticed his hand gripping the door frame. There was no five.
"There's so much to do."
"I know, holy crap, right?"

At least we're set with a name. Last night sister Lisa called and four year old MaKenna chatted with both Jim and I. She shared her suggestion for a boy or a girl: Peter Pan!

I think that I mentioned a long time ago that someone close to me was expecting twins, but until she shared with the world, I couldn't here. MaKenna is going to have identical twins coming to live with her this winter, and she's making my sister tell everyone: the bank teller, the gas station cashier... They're identical, so either 2 boys or 2 girls. MaKenna's decided their names too: Delilah and Delilah.

Wait! Peter Pan?!?! I thought the baby's name was going to be Phyre Truck.

Or Friar Tuck.

Sorry, it was the absolute first thing that popped into my head after reading Keri's comment. :-)

You are freaking me out. What are you worried about getting done in time. What do Brian and I need to do since we are the same amount of time left as you.

WOW!!!! Congrats to your sister and her family! Amazing. What a happy thing for the Sinki clan, especially after a difficult end to last year.

And I like Peter pan. Very nice.
And ahhh yes, midpregnancy panic. Mine kicked in too, and we weren't done with everything until the end of the year. It gets done--that second trimester energy boost kicks in an you'll feel like you can rule the world!

Love the names!

I think I like Delilah and Delilah better than "I'm Darryl. And this is my other brother/sister, Darryl.

Pulling out the Newhart.
