Worth Every Penny

My mum called yesterday to excitedly tell me that she went out and bought "the cutest baby girl outfit you've ever seen."  Between my parents and D's, I have a feeling this little girl is going to be very, very spoiled.  Speaking of outfits, there is a great collection at Cafe Press for babies conceived through IVF and other forms of ART.  Check out what I ordered yesterday (I couldn't resist):

I'm so glad you all like the name we chose.  Everyone we've told has seemed to like it (or they're just being polite - but either way who cares).  Unfortunately, the battle surrounding the middle name continues.  D and I simply cannot agree.   I want it to be a symbolic name, representing a family member or someone (or something) important to us; and D, I think, is going for more of a nice sounding name.  It truly is becoming The Big Baby Name Debate of 2008.

Lastly, our little girl's kicks and movements (still just flutters at this point) have become s-l-o-w-l-y more frequent but I still can't seem to sense a pattern yet.  She was totally quiet for past two days until last night - we were watching a movie and she went crazy.  For the second time ever, I got to feel her from the outside.  While I'm truly grateful for any movement at all, I'm jealous of those who are getting routinely kicked and punched on a steady basis.  I know every baby is different, but I can't help but wonder when we'll get there.  Still so many milestones to look forward to!
