we are anxiously awaiting the birth of our first child. so many unknowns -

when will it arrive?
what is the gender?
who will it look like?
what are we going to name it?

so much to think about.

And almost as important, will he or she be a Dodgers or Angels fan?

WAIT! I have ALL the answers!

>> when will it arrive?

In November so it will be a Scorpio. (I mean, if you want to wait)

>> what is the gender?

Male, so dad will be able to share a good beer with him later in life.

>> who will it look like?

A cross between David Beckham and Jeremiah Johnson.

>> what are we going to name it?

"David Jeremiah". Hey, its biblical. I was going to suggest "Seven" for a name but not sure if you are a fan of Mickey Mantle. George Costanza liked the name Seven. Im going to name my kid "Shoeless". Hopefully it wont affect his job potential. I'll try to keep him off of Facebook.

>> so much to think about.

I know. Hope that helps clear things up ;)

With Love, 1916home

PP - First and foremost, a broken hearted Blue Jays fan, then a Dodgers fan. Lets hope the Angels don't make an appearance.

Dave - HA! I love your answers, although my wife will go bananas if it takes until November for this child to arrive. David Jeremiah isn't bad, but I like Seven more. George was on to something there...

This is an exciting and wondrous time for you, Ben. Congratulations!

Good luck! I hope all goes well for all of you! I'm glad you don't know if it's a boy or girl yet - that spoils the fun!

ben wideman said...

Yep, I guess we're old school in that regard. Kind of makes the birth a bit more exciting!

It looks like a Megan to me! :)

ben wideman said...
