We decided on a name!

Last night we finally agreed on a name for our newest family member...Christian Alejandro Palacios. We haven't decided whether to keep the "h" or not (Cristian), but at least I can start calling my boy by his name. Carlos really wanted a Jr., but we compromised and they will have the same initials instead (CAP). Philip looked very much like his dad (dark hair and olive skin) and I was worried this baby would come out light skinned and blond. So I really wanted a name that would work either way. This one fits the bill and it just feels like the right name. Yeah!

BTW- Mom and I visited my brother and SIL this weekend. We had such a blast playing with my nieces and catching up. On Sunday, we stopped in Dallas on the way home to visit my old friend Lisa. Our family moved next door to her's when I was 5, so we have been friends for a long, long time. She is currently several weeks away from her first labor experience...except she will be delivering TWINS! Double the pain, double the blessings! Anyway, it was so great to see her and her husband and her parents. We had a lovely lunch and I really enjoyed checking out her girl's nursery and all the cool stuff she had waiting for their arrival. She even let me rub her belly! I love the belly rub! It was a great weekend. I can't wait to meet her babies, Lisa is half hispanic and her husband is anglo. Carlos and I are basically the opposite combination, so I can't wait to see what the girls look like. And...which one will be my future daughter in law! LOL! Franny Palacios...Zooey Palacios...either or works for me! Just kidding...our kids will defineatly be friends but anything beyond will be for them to figure out.

Since we were away this weekend, I did not have time to scan the sono pictures. I will try to fit that in this week.

On more thing, my friend Christina had her son Noah this past Saturday (3 weeks early). I think it might of had something to do with that full moon Friday night. Anyway, mommy and baby are doing great and went home yesterday. Christina and her husband have waited a long time for Noah and I am over the moon for them.

Soooo...my kids will be 1/4 mexican and yours will be 1/2 so if they have kids together we will be close to one whole mexican. No? :)

It was great to see you too. When you get a chance can you email me the pics from your camera? I will send you what I have from my mom.

Oh, and DUH! Love the name! I guess Carlos didn't like my idea of Guillermo (MeMo)?
