Im so excited to buy this:


Names? I like Anna middle name Belle. It means easy to love or favored grace depending on the website. That's what we need, someone easy to love (: It may also remind you of a poem about a dead lady written by E.A. Poe which reminds me of my 10th grade english teacher Mrs. Coe:

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love -
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulcher
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me
Yes! that was the reason
(as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we
Of many far wiser than we
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride,
In the sepulcher there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea

Congrats!!! Now we get to have girls together. Knowing her parents, she will be a great cook and great at fixing and helping around the house. :)

Did you know Barb is prego too with a boy? We're all prego at the same time! And the funny thing is-I was looking through and organizing my pictures the other day and found a picture of all three of us with pillows up our shirts pretending to be pregnant. Silly us!

So, I really like the name. In fact, we have thought about naming a girl Annabelle (one word) because its my great grandmas name! But, I really like it separated, too. Anna is so classic. And I just love "A" names :) Yay for baby girls! Sometime our little ones will have to meet.

Mrs. Coe, huh? I haven't thought of her in ages. Didn't we have to memorize that poem? Never more, quoth the Raven.
