Missouri is the cynical state. You might talk em out of a coffee or a beer but I bet that's as far as you get.

update:

Last night it was confirmed that our baby has a heartbeat and can kick loud enough for a doppler machine to pick it up. My wife is the perfect weight, has perfect blood sugar and has the highest hemoglobin recorded in her town :0)

I'm excited

Amelia for a girl seems to be staying good. Not so sure about boys names. possibly James, but it's a little boring

Just don't repackage a common spelling when you choose one. Please. I never realized 'til the last thirty years you could spell Cathy 30 different ways. Stick to the tried and true. I like Stan. Strong name. You picked it.

I like it, i do, but i dont think it'll stick. My wife has gone off it i think. Currently i'm hoping it'll be a girl so i don't have to think of a boy's name!

Amelia is my favorite girl name. I hope the pregnancy is a very happy time for you both

Do you plan on finding out the gender before the little one is born?

We were discussing the matter last night and decided there's no real reason not to, except that sometimes they get it wrong. I think we came to the conclusion we'll ask but treat the answer with caution. Scan is in april :0)

Be surprised dude. It's better that way. And yes a girl will be easier on your nerves untill teen time. That's where I am now. I hope I don't have to lay a beatin' on no bad *** boys. Then there's PMS! LOL

In my experience, you really truly want the first born to be a boy. First born girls are hellish come puberty. hellish. hellish!!

Leonard... I love it. My fave uncle is Leonard. A great big, quiet, kind man, he's one of the most inspiring people in my life.

I didn't have any major grief with Jodi. The little diamond in the nose wasn't all that bad and it didn't happen till she was 15 or 16. The pink hair was kinda neat but I didn't like the blonde hair she tried first.

Yeah, the dads never seem to be the ones who want to beat the daughter. Let me put it this way... for your wife's sake, a boy first is easier. lol. Every first born daughter I know fought like HELL with their mother, and twisted their dads around their little fingers. lol.

i've often heard that guys like daughters and girls like sons. Maybe that explains your different views on first-born daughters

Well, there may have been a bit of that. I admit to being a bit of a softie, but I have an excuse, I was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse than my kids as a kid. So anything they did that wasn't physically, emotionally, or psychologically harmful was ok with me. (IE, no bullying, terrorizing town at night, dangerous games without proper instruction, etc.)

It could be. But, in my experience, a first born son makes for a more peaceful household than a firstborn daughter. Sons don't push the limits in the same way daughters do, and so the household rules are more set when the second or third born comes along, without the same screaming matches.

I heard that, too. Also heard that guys like their sons to be just like them. Both my girls play(ed) rugby (I taught em the basics). I played catch with them and their mother. Both know the basics of diagnosing a vehicle's ailments. Bth can operate heavy equipment of some kinds. I don't think there's anything they learned from me that I wouldn't have taught a son. I just like kids in general. Neat toys.

A thing from the depths of hell. A consort of satan himself, her screeching voice would and did peel the paint from the walls.
