Let me introduce you to the newest member of our family. This is Giraffe. He was born Sunday 3 March 2012 at 11:40am (I think.) He was 8lbs 2ozs and 21 1/2 in long. No, you don't get to know his real name on this blog. I like to protect my innocents. I also reserve the right to change his nickname on this blog, like I did with Squeak/ Little Man.
So why the nickname Giraffe? I knew you would ask that question. We didn't have a name picked out ahead of time. We didn't know if it was a boy or girl and we tend to either disagree or not even use the names we talked about so we didn't really bother this time around. When Sweetie Heart asked what his name was I didn't have an answer. She kept calling him by Little Man's name. She said to me, "Mom! He needs a name of his own." So I told her to call him Giraffe. "Why" she asked. "Because I like giraffes and I like him, too!" So there you have it. After 2 days he finally does have a name. Praise be.
