Third Trimester...time is ticking...and we have a name!

It's hard to believe I'm in my third trimester already. I can remember very vividly the morning I woke up and tiptoed into the bathroom to 'pee on the stick', as I so delicately referred to taking the pregnancy test.
I've come full circle back to some of my favorite first-trimester hobbies, such as napping on the couch every day after work and heading to the bathroom every 2 hours. Unfortunately, the napping and peeing are cramping my time available to get all of the stuff done that I want to in the house before the baby comes.
That list includes:
  1. Culling through all of the stuff in the guest room closet so we can actually fit baby stuff in there.
  2. Selling the roll-top desk to make room for my computer desk to move out into the front room area.
  3. Organizing/getting rid of the ridiculous amount of paper I have filed/piled in various locations around the house.
  4. Hanging up the window shades that I had to go out and buy last night for the baby's room and our room.
We made a lot of progress tonight on the paper and closet issues, but there is still so far to go. I have gotten rid of nearly all of my materials from my last two and a half years of college, and only kept about 5 papers that I still feel proud of.

So, about the last part of the post title. We have selected a name for our son. Most of our friends here in Tallahassee know it, and love it! Most of our family members think we've really lost it this time. It's not a 'normal' name, we know that. We also know the strength of my mother's reaction, and that we're not telling any family members the name of Baby #2 when he or she is coming.
Anyway, without further ado, unless we come up with something we like better (highly unlikely)...
We're naming our son

Fox Carson Rutherford.

The end.

It's your baby and your choice of names. My only suggestion is to reverse the order to Carson Fox Rutherford. That has a distinguished ring to it and if he hates Fox when he gets older, he can go by Carson F. Rutherford - sounds like an attorney or doctor to me. It sounds very important. Of course, as a baby, he'll probably be called Foxy anyway. Just pray that doesn't stick unless "he" turns out to be a "she". Ultrasounds have been known to be wrong. You know we said we wouldn't call Hope, Hopey, but everybody does. Personally, I don't care as long as he is healthy and his Mama is okay. What's he gonna call me? Will I still be Nonna? I'm getting excited. It won't be too much longer. Just take care of yourself and if you need to take a nap, take it. I love you all! Mom

Spencer's hoping he'll be game to reopen all the weird old FBI files...
