The waiting game is the WORST. At least you are prepared. I hope he/she arrives soon!!

It has always seemed like a sensible thing for a baby to arrive before the baby's name. How can we name the one we do not yet know?

I'm not bothered ;-)

I think I told you this story, but when my fourth son as born we had picked out the name Asher (this was long before Ashton Kutcher, btw.) He came out and everyone in the room said, "What is his name?"

My husband answered, "Asher"

And I looked over at him and said, "I don't think so."

The doctor and nurses all started laughing. But at that moment when I laid eyes on him, I knew it wasn't his name.

The twentieth of October is a lovely day for a birthday, if you ask me. At least I must have thought so a few decades ago.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't even keep up with the baby book for the first baby. This is why I blog. Blogs are much easier for long-distance relatives to access than old fashioned paper books, anyway!

Only if you tell them about it or they Google you, Lenise. Let's hope my relatives stay away from Google.
