...Some Things

- I've made it to the 24th week! Can you believe it? This is the most pregnant I've ever been...I feel as though I've passed a major hurdle in this pregnancy and am now starting to relax a little bit. The baby shower is coming up ssoooooo quick, I can't even believe it! I feel as though I should be stressed about it, but I just feel as though everything is going to be perfect. I'm not worried about it...although I probably start to panic as the day gets closer, lol.

- ....so we've decided to change the baby's name. We've been dead set on the name Greyson, and have been calling him by that name before he was even conceived...but it's not happening anymore. Not to mention to that we did include his name on the invites...but that's no longer his name, lol. I'll explain it to my family eventually...although I'll probably call him Grey anyway. Jamaican people have a weird penchant for that. For example it wasn't until a few years ago that I realized my Uncle Gary's name is actually Andrew and my sisters nickname growing up was Keisha although her name is Nicole. I don't really know what that's about but it looks like that my be the case with my kid also. The name change comes from wanting to give our special gift a name that has more significant meaning. Although I'm obsessed with the name Greyson, "son of the gray haired man" doesn't quite express what he means to us or the person we hope he'll become. More than likely he'll end up with a name from the Bible, however I'm trying to find a name that isn't too common.

- I'll probably never comb my hair again now that I got this turban thing down

- I've realized that self-employment is the only route for me once the little guy gets here. I just can't see myself going to sit in a cubicle...I don't want anyone telling me what to do and I like to be in control of what I do with my time during the day. I've never had a problem with hard work, but I'd rather do that hard work for myself in hopes that I can eventually create some sort of professional platform for my family. Couple that with the fact that South Florida is very limited in careers that I'm actually interested in - I have no choice but to create the career that I want or settle. Entrepreneurship will definitely have it's challenges, but it's worth it for me. I've dabbled over the past few years with a freelance makeup business and a cupcake business but I'm ready to go full fledged. I'm in between two concepts, so we'll see which one will come to fruition.

- I'm running out of things that I like to eat

- ...did I mention that the baby shower is like...now?

I'm so happy for you!!

And I don't blame you I wouldn't comb my hair either if I was able to do a good turban. I have to practice.

I totally LOVE LOVE the name Greyson. I can't wait to hear what you and the hubs choose as his name.
You've passed that milestone and you look amazing.
Cant wait for the shower!!

Hi, I found your blog thru a RT on twitter and have been slowly reading every chance I get. With that being said, congrats on making it this far :) As I'm reading this, the name Adam came to mind for a boy's name, especially since you want a biblical name.

Good luck with everything.
Peace xx

Looking FAB Honey! :-)

I wanted to do a Biblical name for my first born as well. I was stuck on Ezekiel and Malachi (which ended up being the middle name). Anywho's, I'm sure you and Hubby will find the perfect name <3

Love the turban! and thumbing you up for the self-employment/entrepreneurship comment! Make it happen!

Hey! I named my son nahari, a biblical name meaning intelligent. Just look through the old testament, namely numbers to find a nice biblical male name. You are looking so cute mama!

Aww congrats. You look so cute. LOL about the name. I grew up in a Jamaican and Trinidadian household. I so know what you mean.

"I've realized that self-employment is the only route for me once the little guy gets here. I just can't see myself going to sit in a cubicle...I don't want anyone telling me what to do and I like to be in control of what I do with my time during the day.

THAT IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL NOW. I didn't realize this until after I gave birth a few months ago.
