Our friends, M&M, had their baby! They're our first friends in the city to have a child. A high school friend of mine has a girl and twin boys, but she lives in Houston.
M&M's baby girl is 7.7 pounds and has a fun and unique name. M had actually put together a program before her birth, compiling names. However, it was a warped program. M&M cast votes on which names they liked best and least, and the program gave preference to names that neither had strong feelings for. M joked that, as a result, the baby would be named Pizza Hut. Fortunately, that is not the case :)
D likes to give large stuffed bears to babies, but he was crestfallen because they're only appropriate for 1-year-olds and older. I told him he can give her one later. I can't wait to meet the baby!
7.7 pounds sounds like a nice birth weight, also. The babies in my family were bruisers...my brother clocked in at 10 pounds, I was 9 and a half, and my twin sisters were 5 pounds each, which is apparently large for twins. My poor mom.
