Experiment: Growing a Human Being

This was tucked inside my fortune cookie last month: 
Soon = 3 months. Maybe too soon. Sort of surreal. Always feel weird announcing personal things, because what more can you expect than a "congratulations." And congratulations, though well intentioned and sincere, never feel like enough when I'm on the giving end.  Pregnancy announcements are like sympathy cards in that way - not a lot of options of things you can say.

So can I solicit some nontraditional congratulations? You know, like "Best wishes on your Asian son." 

Or a name recommendation (boy).  For instance, "Jean-Luc Pi Cardon." 
Because after all, he probably will come out bald. And if he's anything like his father, articulately nerdy.

Yay! So happy for you, Adrienne! What a lucky little baby you will have. Your parenting experiment is sure to be the best, most joy-producing yet.

So excited for you!

Becca said...

I've already congratulated you, and though I'm still just as excited, I'm no good with words or puns. Though Arden Cardon would be nice. I loved your Christmas card/letter, and are you speaking at alt?? I should've written an email...
