Big Brother

So lately Ben's been going through a lovely phase. You know the phase. It's the phase where at the end of the day you're left not only questioning your sanity about deciding to increase your spawn, but also desperately racking your brain trying to remember where you put the receipt for your first offspring so that bright and early tomorrow morning you can march him right down to the store where your got him and return him. Yup that's the current phase. Of course pregnancy hormones and mood swings aren't helping much. But then....a glimmer of hope, a moment of pure, unadulterated cuteness. Like last night. Emma was being particularity active so I asked Ben if he wanted to feel her saying "hi".
He did.
He felt.
He giggled.
And then.....
He jumped onto the couch arms raised above his head, Rocky style, and started chanting in utter glee "I'm going to be a big brother! I'm going to be a big brother!"

Alright little punk, for that one moment of adorable sweetness all is forgiven.

Name and Pictures

It was sure interesting to see what name everybody thought we'd choose. For awhile there I thought for sure our pick would be left in the dust, but it pulled through in the end. That's right we've decided to name her...

Emma Jane Eucker

or "just Emma" as Ben says. He's not convinced she gets to have more then one name. We're working on that.

There's also been some of you who have been wanting prego pictures. Can't really imagine why. They're not that attractive, but to appease my adoring public here you go. of these things is not like the other........

And the gender goes to.....

So you've waited for awhile, I guess I'll go ahead and spill the beans.

It's a ...........


I think most of you already knew that, but there's your official, go get it notarized, announcement. To say that we're excited is a major understatement. With Ben's approval we've even already chosen a name.*** Want to know what she'll be called? Why don't you guess. I've even narrowed the field for you over in the left hand column.

Cruel and unusual you say for making you wait for information, yet again. What can I say? I like forcing you into becoming repeat readers!
