Ok, ok, I have picked out the prettiest baby name ever should I be blessed to have a little girl someday.

But today I found out that Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter named their new baby Indiana Rose and all I can say is that I LOVE IT!! I love unusual, sentimental names, especially when they’re old fashioned like Rose. My two names are both almost straight Latin and mean “Of High Birth” and “Image”.

Why in the world am I writing about this? Guess I could tell you…

My clock is ticking. And it’s for real this time.

See, as soon as I turned 20 I would claim that my clock was ticking, that I was ready to have a baby, etc. I also thought I was ready to get married (I was wrong, by the way).

But I realized Thursday night, as I watched “The Business of Being Born” (more on that later) surrounded by 450 other women, that I am so ready to be a mom. Weird how it just clicks like that. I called Jeff as soon as I left UAH and scared the crap out of him. Heh.

The clock ticks…and ticks…
