IT'S A...

...BOY!  you may have already seen it on facebook or instagram, but in case you haven't yet, here's the news again: the newest baby is a boy.  i repeat, the baby is a boy.  are you shocked?!  the kids were super excited... kind of.  (when the baby first appeared on the screen, todd said something to the effect of, 'look, guys, it's the new baby! do you see it?' and penelope responded with, 'i'm drawing a picture of a walnut.')

when we asked the kids what they thought we should name him, atticus voted for 'simon peter,' penelope voted for 'sam,' and finneas voted for, well, 'finneas.'  he makes a decent point - that name has been a crowd pleaser in the past.  i'm considering taking his suggestion - i would have to spend less time coming up with  new name, and strangers would have fewer unreasonably long names to remember when i'm introducing the kids.  if they can at least latch on to the name 'finneas,' they'd have 40% of the kids' names committed to memory.  it would really streamline things.

Congratulations! I am highly impressed by this AB pattern you have going. Please don't name him Finneas - not because I don't love the name, but because I love your names so much that I can't wait to see what's next.
