Setting the Record Straight...

I was just able to get onto the blog and read all of my husband's amazing posts over the past month or so last night... I knew that he was keeping you all updated as he would give me the shortened "man version" of what he wrote, but I had no idea as to the depth and thoughtfulness he had put into so many of them. He truly opened himself up and exposed so many of his emotions to you all and he has an amazing way with expressing himself - as many of you know through reading as well.

Last night I cried my way through over half of his blogs, and found myself praising God once again for letting Jeremy and I find each other in life. I can not begin to fathom what sort of path we are about to venture down together in our journey as parents of quads +2, but this I know: we will have each other to make it every step of the way.

And so, about setting the record straight? Yeah. That same great hubby, who proceeded to tell y'all how I would massacre that names list of his he left last night (HOW FUN WAS THAT TO GO THROUGH!?!?!?) - uh uh. I took ONE name off (because, as he mentioned, it was a tarnished name by former aquaintence in life... you know what I'm saying! You don't want to look at your child and forever think of someone from Junior high or something... nuh uh.) And of two options he has for a particular name (with how his plan is laid out) I chose the "other" one as a preferred option.


All the rest stayed exactly as he left them and I LOVED them!! So don't let him go tricking you into thinking that I took the list and burned it or something - he's just talking smack! He did a great job, which I knew he would.

And, for the few of you that DO know his ultimate naming plan, I have NEVER hesitated to give it praise, praise, praise!! It is uubbbbbbeeeerrrr-cool!! Yes, it took me a couple of days to digest the full impact of it after he launched it to me... but ultimately I told him and anyone else that knows how thoughtful his plan is and, yes, OF COURSE, how totally jealous I was that I didn't think of it!! Here I came to our big "name night" with my laundry list and he came with a heart felt plan... it is just too cool.

Kudos to you, My Hubby. The final names list is complete and couldn't be more perfect!!

And no more wifey bashing. Tell it how it is, ma' man =)

(But I am glad that he didn't share his plan with the world... this is true. Not that I would've been PISSED (as was indicated on several occasions) but I just like keeping everyone in suspense!!)

I'm so glad to hear the babies haven't arrived yet. Hopefully, they stay in as long as possible. I don't have any great wisdom to share regarding the bed rest situation except to say it's exceptional you've made it this far. I have many friends that have done it for months with single pregnancies. I know you are, but you definitely have to be thankful for that. By the way, the pics are look fabulous!
Thinking of you and your family,
