That’s Right Baby!
McFadden #3 is in production, with delivery scheduled for January 29th. And we are SUPER PUMPED! We found out a long time ago, but didn’t want to spoil the news in the midst of all my cancer trash. But now that it’s over, bring on the baby! Lindsay is currently 18 weeks pregnant, and we find out the sex of the baby in two weeks! We were hoping for twins, but there’s just one adorable creature growing in Lindsay right now.
Before You Ask, It’s not a Chemo Baby
It was on a Wednesday that we found out that I would be starting chemotherapy on Monday. Our Dr. talked to us about the high possibility of infertility after chemo therapy, not to mention the incredibly high chance if I would need surgery. So he talked to us about “banking”, which we just weren’t interested in. He said we’d need to wait at least a year after finishing with chemo before trying again also. This was pretty disappointing news as we’d been planning to start trying for #3 very soon. We asked if it would be ok to try before starting chemo, and our Dr. laughed at us! He didn’t think it possible with such a small window of opportunity. Well who’s laughing now! MUAHAHAHAhaha…ha…ha!
New Life Means New Things
As with any baby sized addition, changes are on the pipeline. We’re going to need to do some new things in the house, swap out one of our cars for a new minivan, and learn some new defensive moves: a zone defense, instead of man-to-man. We also get to spend time thinking of new names! When we learned we were pregnant with Titus, we picked both a boy and a girl name. We got lucky with our second child being a girl, as we just used the “left over” girl name we picked before. NOW WE ARE NAMELESS. And we really haven’t had much time to think about it yet! We are definitely going to find out of it’s a boy or a girl. Oh, and we like names that mean things, even if it’s just to us.
Titus (Giant or of the giants) Theodore (theo = God, dore = gift) = Giant Gift of God.
Lillian (beautiful) Keona (Gift of God, Americanized Polynesian/Hawaiian I believe) = Beautiful Gift of God.
