Final Countdown

Well, friends, we're in the final countdown.  My due date is May 12th...exactly one month from today!  I can't believe we'll meet our little girl in the next month!

We're as ready as first-time parents can be.  We have the car seat, crib, stroller, a closet full of clothes and two hearts full of love for this little person who is going to complete our family. 

Hubs and I had an awesomely laid-back weekend, just soaking up our time together.  We went to dinner at a Spanish restaurant, we saw a movie, we went for a walk.  You know what, though?  As great as it was, it feels like we're waiting, like we're missing something.  I know it's her...we're just waiting on her.  We're already a family of three and we're just waiting on this baby girl to make her arrival. 

Speaking of her, I should formally introduce you her. We've had the name decided on pretty much from the time we found out the gender. 




We wanted a name that was unique yet classic, strong and feminine, something that could be said in both English and Spanish...and Viviana was the perfect fit in our minds.  June is my grandma's name, who embodies those unique, classic, strong and feminine qualities and who all-around is one of my most favorite people on this planet.  To be able to work in a family name - and her name, no less - was the perfect bridge to her name. 

We call her Vivi ("Viv-ee") or Viv for short and I'm sure we'll come up with other fun nicknames once she gets here and we see her personality.

So there you have it, friends!  One month and counting!
