Everything in Arkansas has been going really well. Beth got to go to a great church conference for women in Memphis called a Timeout for Women. She went with her mom and sister and they were able to listen to John Bytheway and also Sherry Dew. She really loved the experience. That means that I was a bachelor this weekend and spent the weekend with my father-in-law Steve. We played a round of golf on Saturday and I officially shot under 100 (98 to be exact). While for many that would be a terrible round, for me I left feeling as if I were Phil Mickelson winning the Masters. Last Thursday was another doctors apointment and everything is going really well with the little tike. We have a list of new names at this time so we wanted to run them by Quality Control AKA Michael to see if there are any flaws or ways to make fun of the baby.

Ethan James
Ethan Dean
Jace Steven
Connor (The double r is a problem but we really like this name)

This is the updated list and with only 15 weeks to go (a little over 3 months) we are excited to say the least. Beth is looking very prego!!! And may I say extremely attractive!!! I love her prego belly. I am coming down with cravings for chocolate all the time now and Beth has new cravings every day. Recently, mexican has been a top choice. We can feel the little guy kicking on a regular basis and have even been able to see it. He is a very strong little guy, takes after his dad.

Baby Names

Okay here is the official baby name list give us your opinion!!!!
James (middle name)

We are also entertaining the idea of naming the baby
Deron... After Deron Williams but after his game against the Lakers last night that has fallen down a bit.
I am willing to sell the right to name our little boy what you would like so if you want to make a offer go ahead!!! J/K but you can still make an offer!!!

This is all new for me!!!

Okay so I decided to set up a blog to keep everyone posted on what is going on here in the South. We have been here for about 3 months and it has been a crazy time for the Barber family. We we first got down here we were both substitute teaching and saving as much as possible for the doctor's bills. That paid peanuts and Beth has been so tired during this pregnancy that we could see that wasn't going to work. We were fortunate that Steve (my father in law) gave me a job working for him at his real estate company. So for the past 2 months or so I have been working for him. It really was a life saver. I don't know how much more substituting I could do to get paid nothing well close to that!!! I enjoyed the kids, but wasn't much more than a glorified babysitter. Although, I probably made more babysitting. So needless to say that adventure is over. It hasn't been all work for us though. In February we went to Hawaii and enjoyed the sun and also survived the tsunami of 2010....all 2 centimeters of it. It made for a crazy day of waiting and hoping the best but we luckily made it out alive. Hawaii was great I felt sorry for my wife she could not do very much because of the pregnancy but what she did do alot of was soak up the sun so I think she had a good vacation. Life since Kauai has been as normal as newly married pregnant couples can be. We are now in the process of picking out and buying everything for our new baby boy. We currently have a crib, bassinet, changing table and some very cute clothes. The newest struggle is picking out a baby name. The lead for a while has been Connor James Barber, but we have some other ideas now and are indecisive about them.
