Wyatt's Room

I put on facebook a few days ago that I was having a harder time deciding on Wyatt's room than we had deciding on his name. lol SO many options, SO many decisions to make, and once you finally make one, it's opens a whole new door to more decisions. For a VERY indecisive person, this is not good. haha

We decided the first decision we needed to make was his furniture. Once we picked that out, it would narrow down the fabrics and color schemes that would match it. We went to two different stores, saw lots of furniture we liked, but after figuring out the quality, the color and the pieces that were offered, we picked Simmons Kids Furniture. It's BEUATIFUL! Here's a picture:

Wes saw it and liked it immediately, I on the other hand, took three hours to finally decide that was the one I wanted. haha

So, now on to bedding! OH GOODNESS! Looking on the internet and such, we first found a couple that we liked, but didn't love. We wanted something boyish, but not too babyish, so we didn't even know if we wanted to have little animals, or cartoons, or little trucks or whatever. We wanted someting that Wyatt would like for at least a few years. Out of everything we saw, we thought we would try for the color scheme brown and blue. THere were a few patch work ones we really liked, but we didn't want something boring either! haha

While we were at the store picking out furniture, Wes saw this. Once again, he immediately liked it, and it has taken me a while to be fully on board with it. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great, but it's not what I had in mind. I am now sold on it :o) but I didn't remember seeing it on Babies R Us' website..... because they don't sell it! AH! So instead of being able to register at just one place, we're now going to have to register at two. But it's worth it. Here's a picture of it:

So now that we've decided these few things, we now have to decide what color to paint the walls and such. But we're SUPER excited!

So now you've gotten a little glimpse of how completely indecisive I am, and what it's like to try to make me make a decision. I LOVE my hubby and he's ever so very patient. For this, and many other things, I am VERY THANKFUL!

It's a BOY!

IT's official! We're having a boy!

His name will be Wyatt Nathaniel Payton

Wes' family has a different tradition. Very cool one in my opinion. Instead of passing down a name and having sr, jr, III, etc. they pass down initials. I believe it started with Wes' grandfather; William N. (can't remember his middle name) Payton, his father's name is Wayne Nelson Patyon and Wes' is Welsey Neil Payton. So we needed to come up with a name with WNP initials. After much contemplating and looking, (there aren't very many good W names) We came up with: Wyatt Nathaniel Payton. Wyatt means: Warrior and Nathaniel in Hebrew means: God has given.

God has certainly given us an amazing blessing! I can't wait to meet our little boy and am so thankful that the Lord saw fit to give us a boy first.

Here are some pictures from the ultrasound we had last Tuesday:

I wish the photos had printed out as clear as it was when we were seeing him on the screen. But still, none the less, very exciting!

We are SO thrilled!

I Samuel 1:27 "For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him."

High Maintenance = Lots of ultrasounds!

A few weeks ago I had a migraine that was SO bad that my doctor thought I was having a stroke. After being rushed to the ER just to wait for hours and be sent home, referred to a neurologist and then the next day have an MRI and echo and blood tests like you wouldn't believe, all to prove that it really was just a migraine. Pregnancies are COMPLICATED!

As a result of one of my blood tests coming back abnormal; my OBGYN thought I had potential to be Protein S deficient. Which means that my blood may clot causing all kinds of problems even miscarriage. So she sent me to a high risk doctor today...

They told me everything was fine. I'm not high risk and the baby looks great! We got to see the baby on ultrasound. When we started the ultrasound the baby was looking right at us and sitting indian style. lol After some measurements and finally the baby moving around, we now know what we're having! But, I'll have to post that later tonight with new pictures, all the fam doesn't know yet.

But I say all of this to say that even though it's a pain in the you know what to have to go to so many different doctors, have so many tests done, and all the running around and scheduling and all that crap; it's been great to see our baby so many times! We get to have another ultrasound at my OBGYN's on March 5th and then another one on March 24th as a follow up at the High Risk Doctor. :o) Today makes ultrasound number 4 :o)

I'm also very thankful for the technology and the cautiousness my doctor's are using. It puts me at ease.

Pictures and Announcement to come soon!
