I cannot thank you all enough for your sweet comments about C2’s nursery… and her name!
I’ll do a more detailed post next week about how we decided on Frances Belle, but to answer the vast majority of questions:
- Yes, Frances is a family name. She will be named after my late grandmother, Virginia Frances.
- No, Belle is not a family name (shocking for me, right?!). I’ll talk about that later.
- I have been calling her Francie for no reason other than I think it’s adorable.
- Yes, I shared the name early. But, after naming a daughter Dorothy, it’s safe to say I can handle any negativity that might come from someone disliking her name.

And, if you’re anything like me, you could probably really use that money with wedding/graduation/baby season coming up. Just on my side of the family, we have three graduations, two weddings, three babies AND a 90th birthday between the months of June and August. That equals a lot of stationary/invitations/announcements… and gifts!

So, random. Has anyone used a postpartum corset/girdle?
I have been reading all about the Bellefit and the Belly Bandit, and I’m pretty convinced I need one. I personally know no one who has used one of these, but I think having some type of compression will be beneficial after my scheduled c-section. I didn’t use anything after my unscheduled c-section with Dorothy, and I was pretty miserable for a long time.
I would love to hear any opinions/reviews any of you have!

In other mom-related news, can I just say potty training is a bitch?
That is all.

Good thing it took all of an hour to get a dinner planned for tonight to celebrate all of our current life achievements. Follow that with some cousin time tomorrow to create a baby registry for Baby Kight, and I would say it’s shaping up to be an excellent weekend.
TGIF, my friends!
