40 weeks- due date!

Today (October 24th) is our due date. :)

It's kinda nice to have an almost-2-week-old baby instead of still being pregnant.

Lincoln Bryan Merrill


Meet our little guy, Lincoln Bryan Merrill.

He was born Monday the 13th at 6:01 pm after a fast and kind of crazy delivery.

He was 7 lbs 14 oz, and 20" long.

It's been a hard first week, but we're doing better and better each day.

He's the greatest little baby ever, and we are both totally in love with him. :)

This name hunt is killing me!

No, we have not decided on a name for our baby yet.

No, we are not any closer than we were last week. Further perhaps.

*Face palm*

Yes, it's killing me.

I called my grandma yesterday to wish her a happy birthday. Part of our conversation went something like this:

"Have you decided on a name yet?"

"No, grandma."

"Ooooooh Liiiiiindsay."

"I know grandma. It's killing me! We're going to try to decide on a list of names to take to the hospital and I'm hoping once we see his face it'll be easier."

"Hm. I never thought seeing their face had much to do with choosing a name."

... (other small talk)

"Well, we'll probably try to come up to visit after Thanksgiving. We'll have a name by then for sure!"

*sigh*

I saw this mostly relevant youtube video yesterday.

I'll preface it by saying it makes me gag, and that there are only a few names in there that I would ever consider.

But anyway, here it is ha ha ha.
