Palm Tree Liker or Baby Carrie

January 15, 2010   |   by Rachel

Yep, it's true!  We found out yesterday.  We are expecting number 3 to arrive in late September, probably near Harriet's 3rd birthday.  Many of you know that this has taken us a little longer that we'd have liked.  We're pretty excited to have this 3rd little one in our family. Winfield and Harriet already seem pretty happy about it.  Win likes to talk to the baby.  They both really want to have a part in the naming decision.  Today at lunch they were brainstorming ideas.  Harriet suggested Animal, Chewies and Baby Carrie.  Winfield came up with, Espung, Yellow Pill Liker, S, and Wall.  He finally decided that Palm Tree Liker was his first choice.  Harriet seems to have decided that Baby Carrie (from The Little House on the Prairie Series) is her primary choice.  We told them that we'd consider their suggestions.



Congratulations! That's SO exciting! Hoping you have an easy pregnancy...:)

OMG! Congratulations!! I am so excited for you!


How cute are your kids? Oh my word. Please go with Palm Tree Liker. It's so original. Also, I love that Harriet likes "baby Carrie" but wants it to be a boy. Hmm. Congrats!
