Congrats, now who gets to do the maternity shoot? :D

I like OOF Deming.
Or maybe it's twins....OOF and DOF?

I love babies. I'm stuck waiting for grandkids now.

Ha! That's not even funny, twins run in my family. My mom is a twin, and I hear it usually skips a generation.

And congrats. Just say the word and we will ask TF to come up with an interesting name.

I'm not so sure I want to tempt the TF anymore. ;)


Thanks again everyone! It really means a lot to me! :)

Congratulations.
I think you should make a poll about the baby name. ;)


What a novel idea! Have you ever posted a poll before? :rolleyes:

I think he's really just asking my permission to post a poll. Any excuse, right?

Congratulations! Motherhood is amazing beyond description. And, yes, get that camera primed and ready. I have already taken a million of my almost 6-month-old. :)

Was that a mosquito?! Better sharpen your rib poking sword samurai. :p ;)

I'll post a poll about it, but they only let you have 500 choices and only 15 minutes to make the poll... so I might not make it will all the name choices.

Maybe a poll for a girl's name and a poll for a boy's name.

OR we could save a lot of trouble and just call him/her "Junior". :lol:

On a seriouserer note. This is how we chose my kids names:
I went through a baby name book and chose ANY name I thought would be OK (took a long time).
I gave my wife that list and she crossed out all names she didn't like (which narrowed it down quite a bit)
I went over the approved list and cross out any names I'd decided were a bit lame or whatever.
We chose from the left over names (ie the best).

That's how I came up with the names "Stealthy" for the boy and "Ninja" for the girl. :lol: (J/K)

Everybody is telling you to buy L lenses for the upcoming event. Like the event doesn't cost enough already all by itself.

I told you congrats in another thread, by congrats again. Can never have too many back pats.

Hmmm.... where's my special dictionary. Oh, here it is. Let's see...

Baby: a small man-made object with infinite noise at one end and total lack of responsibility at the other. See child.

Child: a small human taken to the amusement park by grandparents, filled full of hot dogs and cotton candy, spun vigorously on various rides, then handed back to the parents when ill.
