All about Baby
We are currently 11 weeks pregnant and are due April 12th. Since we knew we would deliver by c-section, Dr. Kimberlin set the delivery date as April 5th. It will be the day after Easter, which we think is just perfect. We were going to refer to the baby as the "EB," for the Easter Baby, but Lee had other plans. Almost immediately, he said he had a name for her, and it is Eloise. (By the way, we have no idea what the sex is, but Lee is certain that it's a girl.) So now we call the baby Eloise. He told us that he just liked the name, but on Sunday, he told Nam that Eloise is the monkey on the cartoon Wubbzy. At least it has meaning. He has been hilarious from the moment we told him the news. Every morning, he wants to know if the baby has grown and what size it is today. I think he's sick of hearing that it's the size of a grape. He has already given me a list of things he wants to do when it gets here. Giving it bottles is at the top of his list. He also wants to give it a bath and a pacifier. When we asked him about helping with diapers, he quickly said, "NO WAY!" He has already decided we need to get it it's own "owl blankie." I asked if we could just give the baby his blankie, and he said no. We have talked about names, but so far, we aren't even close to choosing any. There are plenty that we like, but I think we'll need to know what it is before we can decide for sure. That's all the information I can think of for now. I'm sure I'll have plenty more funny stories from Lee to share, maybe before the day is even over!
