The end if nearing in this pregnancy or that’s what I keep telling myself. There is only 32 days left hopefully. Knowing me it will be more like 40 days left. It’s incredibly exciting and incredibly scary at the same time. We have a routing right now and it works. Adding another kid is going to upset that apple cart, but we will find our new normal and everything will be fine right?

This weekend I have the goal of getting out the baby clothes and giving them a good wash and then getting all those bottles out and the paraphernalia that has been tucked away from Miss K that is soon going to be needed again. I told the hubs he really need to raise the mattress back up in the crib. The reply I got was a roll of the eyes and oh we have plenty of time. Sure we technically will have another month but then the anal over planner/worrier in me says but WHAT IF. What if we only have a week or two?

That also brings up another thing we have to figure out. The name. Why is it so hard for me to pick out a name for my unborn child that I’ve never met and don’t even know the gender of? Oh wait, maybe that’s why it’s so hard. The pressure of naming a human being who’s personality I don’t know kind of makes me want to throw up a little bit. You see with Miss K I had her name picked up before I even told people I was pregnant. It just came to me and that was it. Boom. Done. The boy name wasn’t so boom done. In fact I was still trying to change it to what I really wanted as I was having contractions. The hubs did not take pity on me in that moment and agree to changing it.

This time around I have the boy’s name. Boom. Done. The girl’s name I’m a little hesitant on. We have one but I’m wishy washy and I can’t quite say yes forever and it’s done. Does that mean I’m having a boy this time? I kind of hope so due to the fact it would take this name pressure off of me.

    I have a few friends really struggling to name their baby to be as well. Maybe contemplate over this decadent bread? The filling sounds divine!

  • Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice


    I love this pumpkin crescent braid, Julie! How fun, easy, and so full of flavor! And that icing looks delicious, too!

  • Jen @ Baked by an Introvert


    I understand being a planner/worrier but you still have a little bit of time left to think about that girl name. Maybe think of a couple more and see if you end up coming back to the first one?
    I’m am dying over this bread. I love the pumpkin cream cheese combo. It sounds divine. Pinning!

  • heather+@french+press


    I cannot believe that baby girl is happening any day – at least from this end it went SO fast 🙂 and I love this breakfast

  • Dannii+@+Hungry+Healthy+Happy


    I really don’t use cream cheese in my baking enough. This sounds so delicious though.

  • Ashley | The Recipe Rebel


    I totally came here to listen to you babble about baby stuff! lol. I can totally relate! With our first, we knew it was a girl and I’d had the girl name picked for like 2 years before I was even pregnant. But we had such a hard time with boy names! This time, we don’t know, and we also agreed on our girl name right away and had such a hard time with a boy name! I’m hoping that means it’s a girl, lol, because we have so much girl stuff to reuse! Oh right, AND this braid looks fabulous. Pinning!

    • Julie Evink


      I’m glad someone listens to my baby babbling!!

  • Carol+at+Wild+Goose+Tea


    I think we can all relate to waiting that last month or so. My first child was 3 wks late. Sigh.
    I love the kind of treat you made for this blog. Its nice that we can do these so much simpler than working with the yeast dough etc the old way—which is still nice–but this fits our busy world.

  • Kelly - Life Made Sweeter


    I love hearing about all the baby babbles 🙂 Names are tough, we had a hard time choosing for our second baby too and just waited until we saw her face to decide from our list. Snacking on some of this bread would be an easy choice for me though – it looks amazing! Love the cream cheese in here!

  • Carole from Carole's Chatter


    Hi Julie, great dish! How about adding it to the Food on Friday: Cheese collection over at Carole’s Chatter? Cheers

  • Teresa


    This looks like a great breakfast entree.

  • Jocelyn+(Grandbaby+Cakes)


    Oh gosh girl this recipe is amazing! I am in love with pumpkin but yours takes the cake.

  • Melanie @ Carmel Moments


    Yum…diddly. Love the simplicity and the flavor.

    Have a marvelous day!

  • Stephanie+@+Macaroni+and+Cheesecake


    This looks absolutely heavenly!!!

  • kara


    I love this idea…one question is the pumpkin you use unsweetened? If so is the sweet of the cream cheese enough for it?
    Thanks
    K

    • Julie Evink


      I used 100% pure pumpkin puree in this recipe that comes in the can. NOT pumpkin pie filling. I think it was sweet enough.
