How I Cope

It's easy to forget that my life is about to turn upside down. We are less than two months from making our family of three into a family of four. Despite my soon to be brimming love for our new baby, I'm really in no rush. You see, life is pretty damn good right now. Annabelle II is just going to reset the clock to July 2007. Long nights, spitting up, crazy nap schedules, impossibly small clothes; the list grows longer each time I think about it.

So how do I cope? Well, I do what any longtime procrastinator would. I put my head in the sand—in this case the sand trap—and pretend that nothing new is about to happen. There isn't anything you can do to prepare for a baby outside of making sure you have all the necessities. This is something you find out after the first one, when you spend months planning out the most minute details and buying all the gadgets you are sure you need, only to find out that your baby likes about a third of them.

Having said all that, there are certain times when you are yanked from la la land back into reality. Below is one of those times. Yes, that's her nose, seemingly pressed up against the camera.

Aunt Dani's thoughts for names for baby #2. As a little sister I feel obligated to say that calling her Annabelle #2 may be harmful to her in utero psyche. Here are some names I think might suit this new little sis:

Ruby
Hazel
Eva
Sofia/Sophie
Rosie
Lucy
Ellie
Maya/ Maia/ Mia
