I checked something off my list this weekend…I changed my very first diaper! We had a cozy girls night at my friend Heather’s house and now that Avery is older she was actually awake for most of it. She’s growing up so fast! We spent a lot of time looking through her clothes and boy she has a lot! Heather is a little fashionita, so I guess Avery will be following in her footsteps! Here's a pic of the little Bookie-Lou:

My friends told me I had to change a poopy diaper or it didn’t count, but luckily Avery didn’t work up a poop for me so it was just a pee diaper.

When I say I have never changed a diaper before I mean never. I didn’t know how to unhook the thing. I didn’t know what was the front or the back. I didn’t know how tight it should be. But Avery likes having her diaper changed and was a very cooperative little girl, so the whole thing was pretty easy. So- change a diaper- check!

In other baby news, I sometimes think about what I would want to name my baby if I ever have one. I REALLY want to have a little girl, actually 2 little girls. My mom’s maiden name is Lovejoy, so I want one girl to have the middle name Love and the other one Joy. As far as first names, I want to name one Lily because my name means “Lily of the Valley” and the other one McKenna just because I LOVE that name and it doesn’t seem to be too popular so hopefully it will still be unique if I ever get around to having a baby.

Knowing me, I’ll probably be cursed with all boys and I don’t really have any boy’s names I am in love with.

What are your favorite baby names?

Laughing my butt off! I can't even count the diapers I've changed, I'll SO share with you! :P David's grandmother was Lilian so we have Lily on our list. Unfortunately, most names I like start with H, Harper, Hudson, etc... or end in "er" which TOTALLY does NOT flow with his last name, so I'm having to rework my list. I would LOVE two girls too though. Mainly b/c of me and my sister.

Haha, congrats on checking another thing off your list ! Glad you didn't get a poopy diaper.. I gagged at the last one I changed. Urgh, diarrhea.
Anyhow, if I ever have kids, if I ever have twin girls .. I want to name them Emma and Ella. I also like the name Victoria. I love the idea of Love and Joy as middle names. They're both pretty.
As for boys, I have no clue. I like spanish names likes Luis or Miguel .. but it would depend on the kid's origins (i.e. it would depend on the father). lol

I've never changed a diaper either!

And I want to name my kids Norah, Kenzie, and Jack. If I have 2 girls, 1 boy that is. I have a full list of names I love, but those are probably my top faves!

I found you on BlogHer, FYI. ( :
Looooooovvvvveeee that question! I love thinking about/talking about baby names - always have.

Here's the thing - if I tell people my names, I'm afraid they'll become popular before I get around to getting pregnant.

I never changed a diaper until I had my son. I asked the nurse how to do it and she looked at me like I was crazy.

I think Love and Joy would be such cute middle names
