Baby Dreams

The strange dreams have started. Well, I guess they're not actually that strange but I do remember them. Last night I had two. Erik and I have been reading the time quintet by Madeline L'Engle (A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door etc. ) and I mentioned that the name Charles was growing on me, it also happens to be Erik's middle name and he thinks it was Great-Grandpa Worthylakes name. So we are starting to think that we might actually go with Charles if it's a boy. (Any suggestions for a middle name?) Well last night my first dream was that it was a boy and we did name him Charles, and then my second dream was that it was twin girls and so we got to use up both our girl names. Erik says I'm not allowed to dream anymore and if it is twins he's going to castrate himself. I'm really hoping it's a girl, it would be nice to have another girl and even out the balance of estrogen and testosterone in the house. Hannah says we should name a girl Tinkerbell and I said probably not, it'll either be Nora Elizabeth or Marilyn Olivia if it's a girl and she likes Marilyn Olivia the best (even though she can't quite say it).
As long as I keep eating I feel okay, if my stomach starts getting empty I feel nauseated and I must say I'm tired of eating already.

I like Charles. Is Charlie an option or just straight up Charles? I will think on a middle name.
And how do you figure that trilogy to be a quintet? There are only three books!

It is a quintet if you add in "Many Waters" and "An Acceptable Time" which are all about the Murry family or members of...
A Wrinkle in Time
A Wind in the Door
A Swiftly Tilting Planet
Many Waters
An Acceptable Time...That's five.

Such a great series of books. Charles is a good name. Middle names...William, Henry, or...? Did you know we have an adult cousin named Marilyn? Lots of family members with the middle name Elizabeth (myself included!). Nora Elizabeth sounds very nice. And I agree...wish I could get tired of eating!

My mom's real name is Marilyn and Erik's mom's name is Elizabeth, we're thinking of sticking with family names, thus Charles works well.
