Some Babies are Happier than Others

At our breastfeeding class last night, we were handed the baby on the right. As you can see, not all babies are quite as happy.

Sink Roy

The cats are beginning to sense that the jig is up. Ever since we cleared out the room that the baby will sleep in and began putting new furniture in there, they've been acting weird. Siegfried, who is our more mischievous kitty, will often go and roll around on the rug in the baby's room. Roy, our more needy kitty, has been spending much more time with us wherever we are.

Last night, in an attempt to garner more affection, Roy crawled up into the bathroom sink and meowed until we petted him. When I shooed him out, he jumped into the bathtub and rolled around in there - something he does occasionally when he wants to be petted and we are in the bathroom.

Hastings, our most affectionate kitty, seems to maintaining equilibrium for now. Although this will surely change when he realizes that the spot between Dave and I where he curls up at night and sleeps will soon be filled by a tiny human.

The Origin of Mr. X

You may notice that we have registries and links to other purveyors of fine baby goods on the right side under the heading of 'Mr. X's Registry'.

We have been struggling with a baby name for many a month and still have come to no conclusions. However, we felt that we should refer to said fetus as something more than just 'the baby'. While watching a movie back in July or August, we tried out the names in the credits. One of the last ones was 'Mr. X Lights and Sound' or something like that and somehow Mr. X has stuck. And honestly, it has stuck to the point that Mr. X is sounding like a mighty fine name to me these days. I mean, it worked for Mr. T, right?

Also, luckily, we found out in September that the baby was a boy. Good thing since Mr. X would be a pretty silly name for a girl.
