Hmm. Well, if I heard all your kids' first names without seeing them, I'd probably assume they were all boys. Written down, the Y in Cameryn would be enough for me to at least wonder if the name was feminine or masculine. I have vaguely feminine impressions of Cameron because of House, MD - even though I'm pretty sure it was her last name on the show, so it doesn't make a lot of sense!
Tristyn seems more masculine than Cameryn to me, and you were obviously OK with that, so - I say, go for it! Of course, I'm saying that as a mother with a daughter called Rowan, so... you know. :p
I had a bleh day today. :( Was going to be all productive, but spent most of it lying in bed feeling icky and tired. DH and I are going away for a night tomorrow night - the first time we've been away without DD! - and I'm both excited and somewhat terrified. It will involve me having to drive in Auckland, a hellish place with fourteen lanes per road, and if you get in the wrong one you end up in Timbuktu before you can turn off; and DH isn't exactly stellar at giving clear driving directions in good time. And I have no sense of direction, so I'm totally dependent on his map-reading skills. So, that'll be... interesting. Assuming we can make it there without disaster, though, it should be fun! We're going to a semi-posh hotel (certainly the poshest I've ever stayed at, and far too posh for the state of my maternity wardrobe) with an in-room spa; we'll have dinner out at a nice Italian place, see a movie (probably Source Code), go to a farmers' market in the morning, and generally oose around shops and so on.
I will be interested, to say the least, to see how DD gets on without us. She's never slept apart from us before (in her own bed, yes, but not in a separate room, let alone city); but she'll jolly well have to get used to it before the baby's born, because the birthing centre doesn't allow siblings to sleep over and I don't want to be left there without DH. My mother's going to come and sleep in our bed, which should hopefully be less traumatic to DD than going to another house to sleep (which we tried a few months ago, with notable lack of success). So far DD seems keen on the idea, but we'll see... anyway, we're not driving back in the middle of the night to rescue her if she's sad, so she and my poor mother will just have to suck it up. I think pregnancy's making me callous.
Have to go get DD's hair cut in a bit! This will be her first haircut, unless you count me trimming away the odd straggly bit a few months ago. Her hair is pretty fine and has been breaking all around the edges of her hairline, leaving a rather odd-looking longer portion in the middle of her head. I've been reluctant to cut it - my hair is sittable-on and I found childhood haircuts immensely traumatic - but DD seems unfazed by the prospect and it will probably look a lot better. It still looks semi-respectable in a tight pigtail, but that makes the breakage worse; and if I leave it down, she has a kind of Cosette/ragamuffin vibe which looks most dishevelled. Plus, she rubs the back of her head against things when she sleeps - you know where babies get bald spots? - and turns that portion into a short, fuzzy, knotty mess. So the time has come. Hopefully she'll behave...
