What's in a name?!

Ok, so for those of you who don't know, we have decided on a name! We actually decided a while ago. We could not agree for a while, so I thought we would be one of those couples in the hospital still trying to agree! But I was wrong! Anyway, our baby's name will be Lilly Belle Foust (someone asked me the other day what her last name was, thought I'd specify!) Anyway, so before we went to Disneyland, I told my sister and she informed me that was the name of Walt Disney's wife! Who knew?! Walt Disney had a special boxcar made called the "Lilly Belle". This boxcar is only used for very special people. We thought since this was the year of "One Million Dreams", that we would just ask if we could see it. We asked the conductor of the train if we could just take a look at the boxcar and explained why. She said of course!!!! She even let us go inside! She told us if we came back later we could go for a ride in it, but there was a chance of rain and they had to put the boxcar away! :( Anyway, here are some dorky pictures of me with the train! We joked that we looked like Mormon moms with our levi capris, socks, and tennis shoes!! Oh well, I guess if the shoe fits...

Such a cute name! I think girl names are so fun! I hope you are feeling well. Get your sleep, you will need it. Hey there are two books you should read. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child is the first and The Baby Whisperer. I promise, those two books will help! They have helped me tons with both boys. Good Luck. I will talk to you hopefully when we are in town in December.

I love Lilly Belle. I have a Lillian Rose. It is such a delicate name. I love the story behind it as well. I hope all is going well!

I'm glad you have the easiest part of raising a child out of the way-picking the name! Sometimes it is the hardest-you worry about the name you are sticking them with for life. Yea for baby Lilly

What a cute name! Abby named all her dolls Lilly a while ago - so she already has the name down for her cousin!
