    And I echo previous sentiments that children are happy wherever they are, if their parents are happy, it’s true.

    Congratulations, TS!

    Remember Cyburbians are here to help with naming kids.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I actually like Seamus! But that's coming from someone who named their daughter Josephine

    Congrats, babies are the best things ever!

    Our due date is 10/11/12.
    I find this highly amusing and hope the sea monkey makes their entrance as anticipated.

    In other "big news" we have found a new apartment.... in downtown Seattle

    In that case, the new child shall be named Seattle Sue, regardless of gender. You must like those rain forest environments.

    AWESOME!!

    Hope the move goes smoothly, and that the dogs forgive soon after the long transport!

    I was off-line when you announced that the sea monkey is coming this fall! I'm so happy for you! New baby, new place.

    Who will organize the Cyburbian Baby Shower?!?!? Oh my word there's just so much to do! I'll make lemon bars - cry joyful tears - etc. No wait, there are other people who make better lemon bars probably, but the joyful tears are coming regardless. I'll get my man card back some other time.

    (smile for each of you).

    As an expecting mom myself, and a self-proclaimed geography nerd, I thought to share the following helpful baby naming links with you- all based on place names

    and

    Congrats Pink!!!



    Thank you for the links! Soooo geeky and wonderful.
    We actually already have names picked out but I will not be revealing them until Sea Monkey is closer to joining us among the air-breathers. Last thing we want is some internet induced baby-name stealing craze!

    Thanks, and you're a full step ahead of me. We're expecting a non-pink version in early July but have had zero luck with names, geographically-based or otherwise. Some planner I am.

    LOL. Don't worry you will get there, it took us quite some time to figure out a name given our bicultural family.

    Sorry I haven't been around much lately. The move and getting ready for the baby have swamped me!
    More exciting news to follow soon. Hope everyone is doing well!
