My husband cut my hair, got a black eye, and I'm 33 weeks pregnant!

It's true....I wanted to get my hair cut, but I got to thinking about how it's like 13 bucks for a cheap hair cut and I just may be able to do it myself, so I did. I took about 2 or three inches off and it looked great yesterday after I did because I curled it and I couldn't really tell if it was uneven or not. Speaking of curling hair ever since I've been pregnant my hair will not curl or it will for about 5 seconds...weird. Today after I got out of the shower I had Greg check it to see if it was uneven and he said it was uneven by like 2 inches he cut it for me. I think he did a pretty good job for a first timer.

Greg and I were going to get pregnancy pictures done, but he went skiing yesterday with a couple of his friends and he returned home with a giant black eye. I was just happy that I didn't get a call from the hospital saying he had broken legs or something else.

This picture really doesn't do it justice and it's much worse today but I couldn't get a good shot of it.
I guess I could get pictures just by myself, but I just hate to leave him out of it :o(

I am 33 weeks and 1 day pregnant! It's so close to delivery time I can almost smell the amniotic fluid! heh heh heh We are thinking about not naming him Owen now but it's still up in the air. I really like the name Mitchell for a first name not his middle name. I just think it's a good strong man name ha ha... so we are going to keep Owen Mitchell and find a middle name for Mitchell and then when he is born look at him and decide. Hopefully that works or he might be nameless for a few days. The middle names we have agreed on so far to go after Mitchell are Brodie, Collin, Everette, Conrad, Grant, and Hyrum. I really really liked Sloan and Zorion pronounced Zor + ion but Greg said if you said his name fast it would sound like Mitchell's Orion haha... so he said no to that and he just didn't like sloan...but I think it's different and Manly- which is what I'm going for here. Sometimes I just think Owen is too cutesy for when he gets older, but I haven't decided... I had no idea it would be this difficult to find a name I would like and we want four kids! Maybe just maybe it will get easier anyone have any suggestions with the above mentioned middle names or just any in general?
Apparently I am measuring small, but my doctor isn't concerned because he said my fundus is right where it should be and that a lot of times first time moms don't measure right on after 30 weeks. I know he is a very well known Doc in these parts and he's been doing this a long time, but knowing what I know and what measuring small could mean makes me nervous. I've said a few prayers and so far I don't feel a need to go get another opinion and I feel really comforted actually, so we are going to keep feeling it out and see how it goes after my next appointment.
I've only gained 4 pounds in the last 9 weeks, but I hear that's normal as well towards the end and I may even lose weight.

On a lighter, more delicious note, I am in the process of making Chocolate cake cookies to take to Greg's family dinner in a couple hours. I figured they would be delish with vanilla ice cream with them :o) subtract the chocolate chip cookie and add a chocolate cake cookie and there ya have what I'll be having in about 3 hours!


  1. That's some interesting happenings going on. Lol. What about Mitchell Owen? And no. Picking a name never gets easier. Atleast for us. With all 3 pregnancies the doc said I wad measuring small and everything was fine. You will be fine. He is going to be so cute I can just tell. I'm so exited for you guys. I will take some if that delishiousness.

  2. We have thought of Mitchell Owen as well...who knows what we'll name him. At least we have 7 weeks to decide give or take. Did they do any ultrasounds or anything when you were measuring small or just watch you? He never said anything about looking into it further, so I really think he isn't concerned at all. I don't really have any motherly instincts that make me think I should worry, so I think everything will be fine. Go make some cake cookies - 1 box cake mix 3/4Cup butter and 2 eggs. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes I usually do 7 because I like super soft :o)

  3. You look great Lacey! I really love Mitchell Sloan...I think it is such a strong name, but I also love Mitchell Brody. did you know that Kirsten and Jarom adopted a little boy and named him Brody? It is a mix between her brother's names, Brady and Cody. I love that name. His middle name is Samuel. I think of you often and can't wait for the good news!

  4. Thanks Vicki! I really love Sloan too...if I only I could get Greg on board... Yay for them adopting the little guy! That's exciting! I'm so excited to have this baby and I can't wait to show you all pictures!!
