The Name Game

We have had so many people ask about names, so I thought I would let you in on the process.

Girl Name: We have had our girl name picked out since before Eli was born, because of course it would have been his name.  If the Lord blesses us with a precious daughter, She will be named Elizabeth Victoria Watson and called Ellie.  My mom's name is Victoria, so she will be named after her.  We laugh all the time and say she'll be 25 before she can spell her full name.  Haha!

Boy Name: Should we have a boy, he will be named after baseball bat...ha!  We've actually had this name picked out for a while, and it's a funny story.  With Eli and Ellie we just happened to like "E" names, but wanted to find another boy name to keep the tradition alive.  One morning we were in bed watching TV when Eli walked in with and bat.  We both looked and each other, and laughed because we knew we had found our "E" name.  Should the Lord bless us with another son, he will be named Easton Clay Watson.  Easton because we like the name, and Clay after my grandfather's middle name.  It also happens to be the my dad's middle name and my brother's first.

In case you're wondering Eli is named after Eric's grandfather, Harold.   His full name is Elijah Harold Watson. So we aren't leaving Eric's family out! We're just carrying on names from my family in this child.  Less than two weeks until we know if w're having an Ellie or Easton!!


  1. I read this at five a.m. I highly recommend banana fanna fo fanna if we r gonna get serious about names here... Good job on names with a purpose. Love names with a little history to them. :)

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
