We Have a Name!

I know we haven't posted in a while but we haven't had much to post! We have, however, decided on a name....... Goodbye Horton, hello Grayson Matthew Gallegly!

We've been pretty set on this name for a few months now but have held off telling people just in case we changed our minds. So, after 6 months of having not changed our minds we thought we might as well start telling people! Grayson has been kicking and flipping up a storm over the past few weeks which is, of course, always so much fun to feel. As of right now his favorite food is definitely a Wendy's frosty. Grayson is sure to get plenty of frosty's on our upcoming road trip!

This Sunday will mark our first amazing year of marriage and the beginning of our 27th week of pregnancy! To celebrate we're heading out on a road trip to visit some National Parks. We'll be going to Joshua Tree, the Grand Canyon, Kings Canyon (to see the giant Sequoya trees) and finally, to Yosemite. We'll be camping in some spots and staying in a hotel at others where the weather gets too cold at night. Camping should be interesting at 6 and a half months pregnant!
We'll be sure to post a lot of pictures once we get back.

Once we're home from our road trip, we're home for good. Traveling is definitely getting a bit more uncomfortable and I'm not too far away from the 'travel restrictions' our doctor has set. We're excited to have Janet and Jenifer out for a few days over Thanksgiving and hope to have some more visitors before our guest room becomes Grayson's room!

Our next doctors appointment is on December 1st (29 weeks and a few days) and after that we start visiting the doctor every two weeks. I absolutely cannot believe we are almost to that point! At our last doctors appointment, our Dr., Dr. Keith, had been called to the hospital so we met with his partner, Dr. Volguelpuhl. I was actually very happy to meet with Dr. Volguelpuhl as he would be the one to deliver Grayson should Dr. Keith be unavailable. We're very grateful to be at a small practice where we've had a chance to get to know all the nurses and not have to worry about meeting the Dr. who would be with us during delivery for the first time at the hospital!

We'll update and post some pictures once we're back from our trip!
