- Marek–rhymes with Derek, but we can’t agree on how we want to spell this one exactly–spelling isn’t really important, but yet, it is. The appeal? It’s weird. And how cute would "Mia and Marek" sound?
- Xander–not Alexander, just Xander. To us, it’s just got this ultra-bad-ass thing going on, and you know how we love bad-asses around here. And it’s better than Riddick.
- Duncan–sure, there’s the whole Duncan Hines and Dunkin’ Donuts associations to worry about…but once you get past that, you can worry about the name’s whole soap-opera-villian vibe. Once you get past that, given our last name, you can make Highlander jokes and actually be funny. This one’s really grown on me.
- Jackson–A little on the *yawn* boring side, but it still made the short list, simply because Caleb’s liked it forever. And I just love the nickname Jack.
Feel free to weigh in on our choices. I can’t promise we won’t just go with Diego, depending on the intensity of the fit Mia’s going to throw when she finds out that, no, that’s not really going to be her baby brother’s name.
My appointment with New Doctor went well. Tomorrow we will get up at the butt-crack of dawn and drive to the hospital, where I will be hooked up to a pitocin machine (hospitals love pitocin) and relieved of my job as chief incubator of baby numer 3.
