Ken and I decided to call the baby Cookie until we know if it's a boy or girl. I find it cute, and it will probably stick. It's also much nicer than "nauseator" or "the fattener". We have officially agreed on names for both a boy and a girl, after some concern on my part about the girl's name. I think it was a hormonal phase, because I've always loved the name, so I don't know why I wouldn't want to choose the name for a daughter. We will be keeping those names to ourselves until we find out the sex... and maybe longer, though I like the idea of being able to give Cookie a real name :)
As you may have noticed, I've added a poll to the blog, and feel free to give your input. I have a feeling I know what Ken is going to vote, since he's telling everybody we're having a boy already... boy, will he be sorely disappointed if it's not, lol. If you're the type who bases sex off of cravings, I'll give you a hint. I'm not doing well with meat (especially cold meat and red meat) and most vegetables are so-so (though a nice plate of lettuce and ranch is good), I love dairy products, fruit, and toast. Have fun guessing!
The thing that we remember through all this is that the sex doesn't matter- what matters most is that we have a healthy baby, and thank God for this blessing.
