Mommy and Owen's WEEKEND OF FUN

So Bigger Baby is going out of town this weekend for a "guys" weekend to Tunica, MS. Pregnant people do not make fun companions to bar/gambling areas so therefore, I will be staying at home with Mr. Owen!!!

I am excited though because I have some girlfriends coming over on Friday for dinner and a movie...Twilight. Yes, I have seen this movie a good 5 times but Edward is oh so dreamy!!!

SO...I have decided that Owen and I will try to be as domestic as possible and try out some recipes. Hopefully sweets...yummy, yummy sweets. All for Owen of course.

To be honest, I am really looking forward to some mommy, Owen time. I am beginning to get a case of the second pregnancy syndrome. Thankfully a few of my awesome friends have convinced me that I am not crazy for feeling a little bad about bringing a new baby into Owen's only child world. While I know he will NOT understand anything that is about to go on, we have been such a tight three person unit for a while now that I feel bad that I he may think mommy is replacing him. YES, I know...HE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND. But in order to compensate for my feelings, I have decided that I will spend as much time as possible with my Owen until Katie arrives. So this weekend is just what we need.

If you have any fun, kid friendly (children 2 and under friendly) recipes please send them my way. Of course, my Leave it to Beaver visual of this weekend may not go as planned. Knowing Owen he will want nothing to do with me and my baking abilities and will cry and fuss because Daddy is not home.

Hopefully I can get my butt in gear and my camera charged so I can capture these moments.

And yes, we have finalized a name for our Baby Girl. Katherine Jane Ferguson.
Please feel free to call her Katie-Jane, should you wish. Her mother will be!!!! Her dad will more than likely be calling her Katie.

Love the name and I will be calling her Katie Jane. I'm working on some kid friendly recipes and if they come to mind I will email them to you. Have fun this weekend.
Love, Aunt Ricki

I want to call her KJ. I think that has a nice ring to it.

Also, I've been wondering-- are you going to rename the blog All Things Owen & Katie Jane once she arrives?

KJ sounds like a dog.
You may call her Katie! (you secretly want to hang out with me all the time don't you Ashley?!?!)

And I may have to pull a Les and change the name all together. Who knows.

KJ sounds like a girl who's too cool for school from the womb, Jill! I'm not calling her Katie. Nothing wrong with Katie, but I feel like I need to call her something original like KJ that only I call her.

Like King Owen.

I haven't seen the little King in ages, but you tell me he's now sassy and that scares me a little.

Lunch is soon. Definitely. When? Email me or better, IM me!
