You guys. You are killing me recently with all the hot hot hot baby news 'n' names! We have to spread this out, okay? One at a time, or we'll use up all our fun stuff at once!
First Jen's baby needed a name, and now El-e-e is letting us help name her baby, too. Oh me, I do love baby name discussions. I'd like someone to use the name Oliver, please, and someone else should use Ruben. For girls, how about Millicent or Beatrix? Or, okay, fine, how about Annabel? Genevieve? Elodie? Imogen? Brindle? Clarissa? Meredith? Celeste? Penelope? Fiona? I have so many favorite girl names available! Please, take what you need--The Fates thought it would be amusing to give me four boys to name, and only one single solitary girl.
If all that baby-namin' weren't enough, there are two new surprise pregnancies in our midst: Giselle (who will have a 4.5-year-old and an 18-month-old when the new baby arrives), and Devan (who will have a 3-year-old and a 13-month-old when the new baby arrives). Congratulations, you two, and thank you, because there are few things I like better than surprise pregnancies--even my own, which, one year ago, was still several days from occurring and three weeks from discovery. The nice thing about other people's surprises is that I don't have to contribute to the barfing or the worrying, and I can fully concentrate on the screaming and the whooping and the "OMG YOU ARE KIDDING ME!!!"
