Emily Paige and we will call her Paige
Paige is a name we both like and couldn't make it work as a first name. So, she will be like me and so many others on my side of the family who go by their middle name (my grandmom Lois, step brothers Brett and Max, and nephew Wheeler...I am sure there are others). Emily is a name we like and comes from Brad's grandmother, his dad's side. I just learned that her first name was Emily back at the family reunion in March - she went by her middle name too (Aula). She was such an amazing woman and we both loved her so much.
How we arrived at Emily Paige...well, we narrowed it down to Mallory Paige, call her Mallory, or Emily Paige, call her Paige. Last week I thought I am going to look up what these names mean one more time just to see. Well, to my surprise Mallory meant unlucky and unfortunate. Our sweet baby girl is neither of those so that name was out! Then after reassuring ourselves that going by your middle name was ok, we settled on Emily Paige.
Yay! I am so glad that we have a name and that Paige will be here soon!

As I write this I realize we took zero pictures of us with our families! We will be changing that as we see them over the next few days! Today is Christmas Eve. We are going to church then over to Brad's grandparents' to celebrate. It should be fun!
Dinner with Dustin, Heather and Skyler
We met them in Pensacola one evening in October. Poor Skyler slept through the whole thing.

I realized I had not updated the blog is so long! There really is just not much going on. Our December has flown by but I am not really sure with what. Brad went to Las Vegas for a pharamacy meeting the first weekend. Then he came home and is just now getting over being sick. Last weekend my dad and stepmom, Donna, came down. We had a great visit and didn't do much of anything (sorry, Dad and Donna!). The weather was just yucky and Brad wasn't feeling super so we just relaxed. We did however venture out and get the dresser for Baby Girl's room.
Yesterday we had our office Christmas lunch. This is always fun to me because we get the afternoon off after lunch. It is great to finish any last shopping I may have or finish wrapping gifts (I have 1 left to wrap!). Today is my last day work for a week and a day. I am so excited to have the time off and am excited about visiting with all of our friends and family in Huntsville.
Finally, I will leave you with this - I am so over the rain! When it rains down here it pours so I feel like it has been pouring for weeks! Just when I thought we were over it I woke up to nasty, nasty rain and then had to drive in it - yuck! Oh well, it looks like it has stopped for the day and they say the weekend is going to be nice.

But, we got the scores yesterday, and HE PASSED!!!!!! We are both just so excited and I am so proud! He is now a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist. He doesn't get a raise or anything flashy like that, but he does get to keep his job, which is way more important than a raise and gets to have some initials after his name (BCPS).
I hope our daughter is smart like him and gets his test taking skills!!! Also, Brad, congratulations and I am just so proud of you!!
