Garret and I decided that we will not be finding out the sex of Baby W. Well to be honest I have waffled a little since our original discussion on the matter but G will not budge. My mostly fake argument of “my body my choice” was met with an “our baby our choice” reply. And thus we are waiting!
One of the downsides of this is that we now get to have “discussions” on both boy and girl names. Apparently I lean towards the hippy choices, and Garret leans towards more boring ones. Somehow he has known (and hated) someone with most of the names I suggest. He also comes up with the most ridiculous nicknames and worries our kids will get teased…I try to explain that kids would not be as creative but he doesnt agree.
Since we won’t have a personal pronoun with which to address said fetus, we have been auditioning nicknames over the past few weeks. (I HATE saying “it” when referring to our soon-to-be-newest family member) G vetoed any variation of fruit or veggie nick names and so we have settled on Gus. Short for Gus Gus
