Not “It” Anymore

I think I’ve figured it out. Before we knew that Cole was going to be…well… “Cole,” we called him “Piglet,” not really after the A.A. Milne character, but mostly because he 1) Made me so hungry that I ate like a pig, and 2) At a certain point in his development, as all babies do, resembled a fetal pig. Strange, I know, but there it is.

But this time, I really wanted a new name for the tiny passenger in my body (no, not the tapeworm) but was having a difficult time thinking of anything that seemed quite right.

But just last night, I found myself thinking about how much my lower belly feels like a pouch this time around, which lead me to think about kangaroos, which lead to remembering that Cole has a kangaroo with a baby in the pouch that he got when he was very small (maybe newborn… can’t remember), which in turn brought me to A.A. Milne.

So the new baby’s “before we have a real name” name is “Roo.”

    Roo is good.

    We’ve got our name for the little munchkin on the way, and it makes no sense to anyone so we don’t share it. We tried to share with Elex and Taz and just got teased.

    It’s a great name for us though, and we use it often when talking to the kicking, bumping, swishing bump that’s taken over my midsection.

    3 more months to go, and we’ll be holding a little baby with a new name. There’s a part of me that really wants to know if its a boy or girl, but the surprise will be good.

    That’s cute. :-)

    I love it! It’s perfect. And you can show Cole how you have a baby in your belly just like his kangaroo does! Except he can’t reach in and grab yours. Logan used to try to reach into my belly button to touch Claire. It was so funny.
