Baby is not just "baby" anymore!


Well Adam and I have finally chosen a name for Baby Martin! YAY! I won't have to refer to her simply as "her" and "baby" anymore! We had a kinda hard time agreeing on names... and then when we got it down to about 4, Adam said he wanted to wait until the baby was born to make the final decision. Being the planner I am, I heatedly debated with him on this issue. I tried to explain that she will come out looking like an adorable shriveled raisin no matter what so let's just choose one! I guess I wore him down and we finally agreed on..... Margaret Claire Elizabeth Martin. We'll call her Maggie Claire. One of Adam's grandmother's names is Margaret and the other's middle name is Elizabeth. Claire is French and his whole side is French; so smush them all together and you get our little Maggie Claire! Adam did however insist we have a back up in case she doesn't look like a Maggie Claire, so plan B is Emma Leigh Claire Martin. Emma because its cute, Leigh is my middle name, and Claire as I mentioned was French. I am so excited we've got a little girl and a name now! (Well as most of you have probably figured out, I am the type of person who cares a great deal about what other people think. Especially those that I love. Its been hard knowing that some of them don't really like the name, but I just feel its right for her. Maybe one day they'll come around....it sucks when you are so happy and excited about something but you feel like you have disappointed someone.) Anyway, what do you guys think?


I suppose that is all the big news for this post, believe it or not. Work has been going well and I am feeling WAY more comfortable with all the computer stuff. I've got super fun and amazing people to work with so I'm loving it!


Adam and I have been Skyping every night and that has been great. Well, we have actually been using Yahoo messenger. It's the same thing as Skype - you can web cam, type, and make phone calls. We just seem to have better luck with it. Adam has a really crappy connection out there so we have had problems with getting cut off a lot while we are talking. Yahoo also seems to have a little better video quality and its more reliable than Skype. Well, either way, its been amazing getting to see him almost every night. I think he's enjoying keeping up with the belly! haha. I feel like I am getting bigger everyday and its so wonderful. I tell ya, we didn't know if we could even get pregnant and to know that I am carrying little Maggie right now seems like such a miracle. I might have a husband overseas, but I still feel so blessed. Granted, when I start missing Adam, I forget that sometimes, but I am trying really hard to keep it in mind. Things could be SO much worse than they are.

Well of to bed! Working girl needs her sleep!

Margaret Claire Elizabeth--that's beautiful. Will you want all 4 initials on those adorable little outfits that proper southern babies wear?

Thanks so much guys! We just love it and its so special since it incorporates both of Adam's grandmothers.

Anonymous, we'll probably just use MCM, but you've got it right that she will be sporting those monogrammed numbers!! haha!

I don't know you, but stumbled across your blog, and just had to tell you I admire you for being so strong in a less than perfect situation. You are handling it much better than I would! So don't feel bad for any meltdowns or cryings fests :)I can't imagine going through the miracle of pregnancy without my husband there every day..praying for his safe return home and for your healthy baby!

p.s. LOVE the name Maggie Claire!! Too cute.

I really like the name too Jess. It just seems like it will fit her. I can picture both you and Adam yelling this name constantly - even though she'll look at you with those bright eyes and keep you from punishing her, and Adam... poor Adam is already wrapped around her little finger so it looks like this little one is going to get away with murder on a daily basis. Besides - the name Maggie Claire just can't be associated with doing any wrong. haha!!!

I love the name - I think it's great. I admire the fact that you guys were able to pick one so quickly... I would be going back and forth constantly I imagine.

Emily and I both added you to our skype list so we need to have some face time ASAP. Let's make it happen ma'am.

Love from the big D (and I don't mean Dallas)
