Good. That is fine and dandy. However, the name of this blog "Being IKE in Boise" is losing it's appropriateness in just a few weeks. (That is Izaak, Kristen, Elliot if you didn't already figure)
I mean, there will be four of us. And IKE+1 more doesn't have the same simplicity. We've been IKE for 3 years. It is on address labels. We get letters addressed to IKE. It is easier to write out than The Rasmussen-Baldwin Family. And now, New Baby complicates the system.
We have thought of some solutions:
- Name New Baby an "A" name...IKEA?
- Name New Baby an "I""K"or "E" name, and square the repeated letter.
- Ditch the cute abreviation altogether and just use our real names.
And that brings me to the final issue of the day: since we don't know the gender, and don't have the name picked out, and there is no nursery to decorate...well, my 3rd trimester nesting instinct is restlessly looking for something to latch on to.
This could get ugly, folks.
