Please Don't Leave the Seat Up...

...Is a phrase I need to get really, really, really comfortable with.

Not only because I hate accidentally landing in a pool of urine, but because between my husband and TWO sons, I'm going to be vastly outnumbered.

Yup. Not only does Baby A have a penis, Baby B has one too.

And after months of referring to Baby B as "Baby B," I'm starting to think that maybe we can end the name game. If Diddy can be "Diddy," then I think Baby B can be "Baby B."

Because my god - the name game is getting old and I want to throw every baby name book in the fire. Really...really do you think I'm going to name my child Ulysses? My theory on baby name books is this: there are really very few AWESOME names out there. So most names that get thrown in are just fillers to make you think you have options. If the name "Baby B" doesn't pan out, perhaps I'll switch to a new strategy: the random striking of letters on a keyboard. Perhaps we could use the name "daoiljfkk" or "reoiojjg." If someone could just clarify the pronunciation for me, we might be good to go.

Sounds rational to me, though honestly would you want to be named Baby A? Sounds a little porn starish to me! I figure if it's a boy just ask your husband what name he would like to have, and go with that. It really all comes down to whether the person who has the name likes it anyway, unfortunately they aren't very good at voicing their opinions on that matter at birth! Good luck, you've still got some time to decide, and you can always wait to see what they look like.

April you may be out numbered, but those boys will all take such good care of you in the years to come! And the name game is just that...but a fun one to play with in the months to come.

Delurking to say congrats on 2 boys. Part of me is secretly wishing for 2 boys (we find out this week) but the other part of me is petrified at the thought of 3 members of one household peeing all over the place (no offense, hubby).

Congrats again!
