thankful thursday

... STARBUCKS CHRISTMAS CUPS. I could right a whole blog on this - wait - I did last year.
... that the election is over.
... that Elias' personality & vocabulary seemed to have BLOSSOMED with his recent haircut. Words we've added: gentle, blue, red, yellow, purple, coke, & spoon. Seriously? All in one day?! Also I was inspired by Angie's blog about femininity & we taught him to softly rub my cheek when he says gentle. aaaahh - my heart melts.
... diet coke. beverages are really important to me, and now that coffee is out - I need diet coke to get thru the day again.
... that my hair is finally growing out. thank you pregnancy hormones.
... that I get to name another baby. I looooooove baby names, love them. I already have a running list but will not be sharing the final pick this time. Here are some that are starting to build in my head: Rose, Margaret, Esme, Ines, Adele, Hogan, Simeon, Porter, Boaz, Joaquin. That's only the beginning of my list - I read the 50,000 baby names book in bed each night.
... my husband. He's been psycho busy with tons of school, ministry, and new church volunteering stuff - but he is being such a trooper. One of the main reasons we moved out here was because he was so overbooked, but this is totally different and every new task he takes on, he flourishes with. He's still carving out time for the kids, for me, and surprising me every step of the way.
... that tomorrow is Friday. I say that every week, but I really love it. This Friday I'm doing breakfast with girlfriends, the rest of the day with the whole fam, & date night - as usual.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Adele! Beautiful. and Porter. too cute! I love baby names too and make spreadsheets with my favorite ones and their meanings and so on!

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

I love the momma tingle I get when Wes says new words or does something cute. Wes has been learning new words everyday and I love it! It's almost better than the first step :) Amy is a good name btw. Haha. I like that Hogan... wonder who that's after... hmmmm... It would be a great tribute to a special person in your life right now ;)

Jennie said...

INES ADELE! INES ADELE! That's mine!!!!!!! I'm so glad you like it that much. I think they flow...I've also always loved the name Esme too.

Rachel said...

I do love thinking about baby names. We have never been able to agree on a girl name..which has worked out so far. If we are blessed with a daughter there's no telling what kind of war could break out. :)

I love that you have a date night every week. We are hoping to work up to twice a month.

Jennie said...

Also. Lorelei.

Lorelei Ines Connolly

Boaz is a GREAT name. Man, you bless a kid when you name him after such a great and godly Biblical man. Bo.

But please please please name him Hogan. That would be amazing.

Shawn said...

I agree with Jason. Boaz is a great name. Strength. Cool.

You could name him Bo Hogan Connolly. We could call him BoHo. Or Ho Con. Or... Boaz.

Jessi said...

Oh yeah, no one can deter me from Boaz. When Nick and I still teens, we went to dinner one night and wrote down our baby names for our kids. Sweet, huh? The only one I remember is Andrew Boaz & we said we'd call him Andy Bo.

And I should give JPH the credit for Ines Adele - that was all her!

I love that ya'll love Hogan, too! It has a wonderful meaning too: descendant of a young warrior.

Lauren said...

if by 'young warrior' you mean me, well then all the better:)

maybe i will name one of my kids 'moss'--just for kicks.

love all the names (and the story about you guys in high school is sweet).

Nick said...

Just for the record, it was the summer between high school and college.

AND I had already been out of high school for a while.

We were way older than Jess makes it seem.

If I catch Glory going over baby names with a guy in high school...I am shipping her to Siberia.

I hear the summers are great....
