The strangest thing happened to me with names. I have had several names picked out for a couple of years that I absolutely loved and just knew that I was going to name my children the names that I had picked out previously. I even had a couple of boy's names picked out. BUT when I got pregnant and started thinking about naming our baby, only one name came to my mind and I just couldn't ignore it. I have never once in my life thought about this name and I've never even thought about liking this name. But when "Paisley" came to mind, for some reason, I was compelled to use that name. So I really have a strange idea that Paisley is just going to fit her personality and that she has to be a girl, lol. I have tried multiple times to pick boys names in case Bundle happens to be a boy, but I just can't. I guess it's my subconscious intuition. We will know if I'm right Friday.
How many people do you prefer to accompany you during the intimate time of birth?
I *love* the name Paisley! Unfortunately, DF veto'ed that one immediately. But he had a good reason. My sister's dog's name is Paisley. But I think it is a *wonderful* name! I hope you get to use it!

I will likely only have DH in the room. Last time I had DH and my mother, but this time she will likely be taking care of DD1 during labor. There might be a chance of those two swapping, but I doubt it.
If you celebrate anything for the Holidays, what are your favorite traditions? What MUST you do each year?
I like having cinnamon rolls Christmas morning. :) The last couple of years, my mom has made them, but I think I might try my hand at them, this year. :)
Also, I just love sitting at the table with my family, eating, and watching the kids opening their presents.
Really, I just love Christmas!
Hmm, questions... questions...
The only ones I can think of, I can't remember if someone has already asked or not, so if I repeat, forgive me.
Are you decorating your house for Christmas? If so, do you do it Billy Joel style and go to extremes, or keep it simple? For us, we have the tree set up, with lights and some ornaments, we have candy canes lining the walk from the sidewalk to the porch, and solar lights lining the path from the drive to the porch. DF wants to get some more lights to hang on the eves, and we have some winder clings to put up probably this weekend.
