Brand new Nufer, on the way!

Just so that you are in the know:

One line - Status quo
Two lines - the ultimate quid pro quo

So the baby is on his (we're assuming) way, and will be bursting into this world come July or so. This is number one for us, and will be child that converts the parents into Grandparents.

We are very excited parents, indeed. The baby will be coming right around our four-year anniversary, and about the time I will be finishing up my master's degree. Here is a list of things that the baby will be able to look forward to:

  • Kisses
  • Hugs
  • Being spoiled by grandparents
  • Skiing
  • Learning
  • Playing outdoors
  • Harry Potter
  • A father who will play xbox with him
  • Spicy Thai food

Of course, there are also elements of this world from which we plan to shield our children:
  • McDonald's (and other forms of fast death)
  • Rick Astley or MC Hammer music videos
  • Early Adam Sandler movies
  • Mullets
  • Comic books and/or male scrunchies
  • Reality TV

So what we need from you guys, our friends and family, are suggestions for baby names. Given that 2009 will be the year of something or other on the Chinese calendar, and that our first-born will very likely has some kind of Zodiac sign, let's see what you can all come up with. Give us your suggestions as a replied comment to this post.

The first suggestion comes from my Kathie, who states: "I'm pretty partial to Jacob, Sarah, Ethan or Tyler..." Her kids' names happen to be Jacob, Sarah, Ethan and Tyler.
