WONDERFUL news, Keith!! :D :D Many congrats to you and your wife.
(My daughter's 25th birthday is today. There is nothing like a January baby to perk you up in the midst of the winter doldrums. :) )

I am thrilled for you.

Congratulations! With three children now, you are clearly a braver man than I! Take care of your wife, she really needs your help now. I hope you can cook.

Thanks all for the support and best wishes - much appreciated!

I've told them they have to compete. Although my other daughter didn't look as though she thought it a competition worth winning. :)

Best,
Keith

Congratulations! What fantastic news!

I am sure it's total chaos, and you're both totally frazzled, but that lack of sleep will only be short lived! By the time she's 21 you'll be back on sleeping through!

Nah, more like 30 (you've forgotten the bit when they move back in again after university/college)...

Now, as to the matter of naming: I don't remember our being consulted on this. We are family are we not?

Well, 'Binder', that's a boy's name obviously, but we still have 'Scrivie' which, though it looks a horror, sounds nice and can be affectionately shortened to 'Scriv' (or even 'Scrivvers', if a tom-boy).

Now, aren't you sorry you didn't ask? And I'm just warming up here.

P.S. I think it's time to change the baby.

GR I think that was just vic-k.

I kind of like Scrivie, but it sounds too much like scurvy.

We should really think a little more "global" and consider the L&L options as well. Say Litteratina, or Lattella. That might be tough to get by mom though.

Well, then, there would be 'Littie' (shortens to 'Lit' for the teen-drinking years).

Oh, and 'Rene' -- short for 'Renevircs', of course.
