We caved, and found out.
The name is back to...John "Jack" Fox Paulson Tate- the name we originally agreed on way back when before we were even engaged. No '-adams' or 'Ebenenzer.'
We have time to change our minds, but he's going to be called Jack no matter what. Maybe we could name another son, be we so blessed, Adams Ebenezer, and be like another family I know....

My due date has been moved to June first from the thirteenth, so I am officially 22 weeks along- I jumped an exciting week and a half closer to meeting the baby...but I enjoy the journey.
I have a picture of my belly, from the side and cloth-ed, but Josh is actually working at his work computer. I will have to sneak away at bath-time and post it up!

And just so you know...I am VERY happy and excited to be having another boy. Josh actually wanted a boy, and I don't know if I could be more or less happy if this was a girl, but I love knowing what to call our newest one. Did that make sense? Hmm....

Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.

Summer in Florida

This is our fourth summer in Florida- a number that amazes me.  I still don't feel at home here, although  I know my way around.  I don't feel completely out of place in the supermarket, but I have this suspicion that everyone knows I'm not from here, and they know that they don't know me.  That special kind of paranoia belongs to the homesick, and even while I acknowledge its foolishness, I still feel it.
Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
