God works in mysterious ways.

I am going to be a new mom again.

I am coming to terms with it.

I am scared and excited all at the same time.

I wonder if we have done the right thing.

We were enjoying our freedom, but felt like something was missing all at the same time.

I was up all night tossing and turning...

trying to think of names, trying to figure how we are going to juggle everything.

My husband was disappointed that it wasn't twins.

He is still considering it.

I have the pictures to show you.......

She's perfect,
from one end....

to the other!

I need some good name ideas.

So far I like Finley, Lola, Fergie and Brie.

It has to be a not so common, sophisticated (maybe preppy) name.

Thank goodness, my kids are out of the "Rainbow, Princess, Blossom, Crystal" name stage.

Our big day is Friday.

The kids do not know!!


I love surprises!

To answer the question:

She is a Golden-doodle.

She will be on the smaller side for her breed, around 35 pounds and
look something like this:

OH MY WORD...you had me! The whole time I was reading it I was Saying *Oh my word!! Oh My Word!*. I of course thought it was YOU!!!

CUTE puppy! Do your girls not read your blog? You said it was a surprise. I guess I just figured they read your blog!

Let's see...names: Muffy, Lily, or Buffy!!

How fun! Adorable! I like Finley...that's cute. A trainer told us once to choose a 2 syllable name that ends in that sound (long e)...that it is the most effective in training. Don't know if that's true but we had an Abbey and now a Dixie. Puppies are a lot like babies...lots of work but lots of love too. You'll enjoy her I know.

You totally had me too, except I was sidetracked as I tried to do the math- figuring you must have been sixteen when you had the first...you get the picture.

Congrats :)

Puppies and babies, love them.

Darla DiStefano said...

Oh, honey, that is the best gift you could have given yourself! That girl is adorable! And yes, I thought you were pregnant too...OMG! Too funny! I'm going to have to think on that name thing...what kind of dog is she?

Carrie B said...

She is soooo cute! I know what you're thinking on the whole freedom thing but this will be good for you.

How about Georgie or Phoebe and even though it's my daughter's name we've heard Callie used twice now. Ha

Hi Lisa, First of all I want to say that you did a great job telling about your moms (and your own) journey these past 3 months. You are absolutely complete grace under pressure. I will always love & miss my Aunt Barbara.
Now, for the new addition, she is precious! My vote is for the name Lola...
Can't wait to see more pictures. Love to you all, -Lori

I am so happy for you! Congratulations MOM!!! What fun you will have with that sweet girl. I love the name Finley. It's different, but very cute. Can't wait to hear more stories and see more pictures when you get her on Friday. Love & blessings from NC!

Hey Lisa, So glad you've got a great big dose of happy on the way. You deserve it. I like Phoebe, Lola & Finley, in that order. Be strong sistah, and don't let those girls name that sweet thing Flossy!
