I just realized I never posted Baby #2's name on the blog, but he officially has one. His name is:
Wallace Metz Massengill
Naming a second boy was harder than I expected. I am a huge fan of family names, and I knew I wanted to use them. Our family tree is not exactly filled with adorable family names though so I had to really think about it. Caleb actually is the one who convinced me to use the name we chose. He loves the name Wallace, and it has totally grown on me. Hearing Wilson say it makes it even cuter.
Wallace is my grandfather's middle name, James Wallace Blackwood, my mom's dad. He was a great husband, father, and follower of Jesus, very involved in his church. He passed away when I was young, but I have several sweet memories of him playing with us as kids. Wilson has his first name as his middle name, and I love that his little brother will share in carrying their great grandfather's name.
Metz is my dad's mom's maiden name. It's also my brother Jordan's middle name. I never knew my dad's parents, but they must have been doing something right to survive raising him, HA! We contemplated using Metz as the first name, but I am very pleased with what we have chosen.
I am right at 30 weeks, and this pregnancy is flying by. We will have a baby in 9 weeks or less, 7 if he's like his big brother. We have gotten lots of things ready, changing the nursery up slightly for little Wallace. I'll take some pictures soon.
I'm feeling pretty good. I still have some reflux and back pain, and I'm absolutely exhausted by bedtime. I wake up around 4 or 5 am to tee tee, but I sleep pretty well otherwise. I definitely toss and turn a lot, and turning over from side side is getting harder by the minute with this big belly.
Wallace is now head down. He had been breech since 20 weeks, but I felt a big flip one night this past weekend so we checked yesterday. And he's head down now. Woo hoo! I LOVE feeling his kicks, punches, and rolls. He's a great mover, praise the Lord! He has a party every night around 10:30.
I have craved food in general, ha, but more sweets this time than with Wilson. I HAD to have Zaxby's on Saturday, and I love a good cheeseburger. My hemoglobin was a little on the low side of normal so I'm eating all the red meat I want. Also, I passed my 1 hour glucose test - another big praise.
I'm just praising God to have made it this far with baby Wallace. Feeling him move around in my belly is such an amazing gift that I do not take for granted.
I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've taken a selfie in a bathroom mirror, but I'm forgetting to document this rapidly growing belly of mine. So quick shot at work will have to do. I'm a little in shock of how big my stomach is this time. He's worth every ounce ; ) Grow, Wallace, grow! We love you so much already, and I cannot wait to meet you! Praying the rest of the pregnancy and delivery go well!
