and he shall be called...

Thank you to everyone that helped us with our naming dilemma. Greg and I have thought long and hard about what our sweet baby boy will be called. All week we have thought about every aspect of his name anda his future. We wanted a solid name, that would be respectable even as an adult. The name that we have chosen was not an option until early this week. I hope no ones feelings are hurt. We love the name Cooper but just weren't sure it was the right fit for this baby. I wasn't 100% about it and didn't want to settle on something that we weren't sure about. The name we have chosen, we love and we both agree on. Well, except Hayden who calls the baby "Lightening McQueen", but he will get over it. I think I have drove Greg absolutely crazy with the baby names. I know he is relieved we have finally chosen a name. And so he will be called...

Cole Talon Hartz
We actually got his first name from and my sister actually gave us the idea of Talon weeks ago as a first name. (Thanks Nikki) Unless Greg changes his mind this decision is final. I hope everyone likes it.

Baby Update!

On Friday I had my 24 week appointment and everything seems to be moving along fine. My blood pressure was a little elevated and there was a small trace of protein in my urine. However, no one seems too concerned at this point. I still feel great! When I was pregnant with Hayden I didn't feel like myself at all. For a week I will continue to take my blood pressure twice a day and return on Friday with my results. The doctors are thinking that I may just have chronic hypertension. The baby sounded great and I am measuring right on track. Although, I feel huge, I lost 1 lb this month. They don't seem concerned that I am not gaining weight either, I am just really active this pregnancy.

We need help!

We still have not decided on a name for our baby boy. We have one picked out but are not 100% about it. I guess I just need a little encouragement. Here is my dilemma: The name we have chosen is Cooper Reid. Which Sounds really good together! Then you add our last name, Hartz and it still sounds pretty good. However, how often do you say your child's full name? Not that often. He will more than likely just be called Cooper, or when he is older Cooper Hartz. Sounds funny, right? The thing about the name Cooper is, it's my maiden name. So, it would be nice to keep the name in the family. Greg loves it, I'm still on the fence about. What do you think?

Go Heels!

Oh how Wednesday was a glorious day. For the 4th year in a row UNC beat Duke at Cameron Indoor. The final score was 101-87. It was beautiful. Hayden was pumped about the game all day and he was telling everyone he saw that today was "Go Heels Day". He was shouting "boo duke" and praising the heels every chance he got. We sure did teach him right. The pictures below are just before we were leaving for school. Please excuse the horrible picture of me, I look like I just crawled out of bed. But, I just couldn't resist not posting the adorable picture of Hayden.
