Nomenclature II

Funny how the day gets away from you. I've been planning to post all day long, and I'm just now getting around to it, and I think I'd rather be going to sleep. It was a big day. Conrad met a grandparent for the first time, my father:

Today was the first time Dad saw Conrad's room, which features the haiku Dad wrote for our wedding stenciled on the wall. His reaction was very gratifying.

While here we discussed what he wanted to be called, and settled on Opa, which is what I called his German-born father. We still have to decide on what to call my Mom. Do we decide or does she? How does this work?

Jean's parents already have established grandparent names: Grammy and Grampy. They'll be visiting soon.

One of the reasons I didn't get around to the blog until now is that I spent the evening setting up a Flickr photostream. If you can't get enough of Conrad, here's the link for you:

Jean (and Dave), Conrad is just gorgeous and you all look like you are doing so well. Congratulations!
