Middle Name

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

We finally decided to call him Evan William. Apparently there's a Kentucky Bourbon named Evan Williams, but he'll just have to live with it.
This kid is so awesome. He had to get a Vitamin K shot about 2 hours into his life, and he didn't flinch. Seriously. And when we took him to the pediatrician, he barely even noticed the doctor trying to find his testicle (yes, poor kid, only one nut. Hopefully the second one "descends" soon). The only time he's cried so far was when the doc jammed the tongue depressor down his throat, and even then, he stopped almost right away. Yes, I am knocking on wood right now.
Cute things so far: Ellie kissing him every chance she gets (unfortunately, that's an awful lot, and the poor kid needs his space), his high-pitched buzz saw snoring, his tiny little cleft chin (where'd he get that from?!?!?!).
OK, seriously time for some sleep now.

Naming Thoughts

What do you think of these: Gwendolyn for a girl, Evan for a boy. We're fairly sure of Evan, and Gwendolyn is the girl's name I came up with yesterday. It's competing with Sylvie, Meredith, and possibly one or two others.
