We went to the specialist day for another check-up & were thankful enough to receive some POSITIVE news on our little girl! I guess overall, we never know anything for sure, but from what the doctor saw, her ventricles look "normal" right now. I think they'll be checking her every week, just to be sure everything is ok.

I promised myself I wouldn't research anything on what could happen if her ventricle continue to be larger than "normal", and I kept that promise all week. I ended up being a nervous wreck though, the closer we got to the appointment. Chris decided to ask the "what if" question, and the Dr. Payne said it could mean learning disabilities. He also mentioned that MOST children with this condition don't have learning disabilities. My thoughts?? If someone tells me there COULD be something wrong with my babies, I'm going to attempt to take it with a grain of salt.

NAMES!!! Sorry, Christina, I keep forgetting to answer your question! We've decided on... Kayelynn Faye & Bradyn Michael :) Kaye is my mother & sister in law's middle names & Lynn is my sister's middle name. Faye is myself, my mom's, and my grandma's middle name. I guess our little girl will have lots of women taking ownership of her name! Michael is my husband's middle, his dad's middle, and his grandfather's first name. Bradyn... well... We just LIKE it! Actually, a co-worker's spouse mentioned that name at a Christmas party, and frankly, it's the only name that's come up that NEITHER of us have objections in using!

I'm quite happy to now have names for our sweet little ones.... Even though I keep calling them our "little boy & little girl", I know it'll be just a few more months before I'm holding them tight in my arms! Yes, I'm anxious... I find myself wrapped up in work or just being tired all the time, and then I think about how life is going to completely change so soon. I can't even fathom what it will be like, and I can't imagine how much I'm going to love them at first sight.

I LOVE your names! So steeped in family tradition, too, which makes them all the more special. I can't wait to see those babies, either... and hold them and kiss all over them. :) I just can't believe that there are TWO of them in there!!
