Laura, no pics yet.. she called me on her cellphone from the hospital. At Irish rates, she may have to sell the baby to pay the bill. Last time, she thought her husband had called, he thought she had called, my parents were waiting on them and my niece was almost a week old before I knew she'd been born. I have taunted them many times since on "broken dialling finger" issues since and I think that the message sank in.
Mada, she and her husband have selected very unirish names for their girls. Emily Catherine is the eldest, Jessica Sarah (?) for the middle one. I'm really curious about what direction they go in this time.
Bonnie, I totally understand, we got tremendous hassle from the paperwork folks wanting a name for Chloe last time. She only went 24 hours as BG O'Connell. That always creates havoc anyway, as I don't have the same surname as my husband. So insurance struggles with assigning all the bills correctly. This was a big deal when we were endlessly getting NICU bills for BG O'Connell and then bills for Lucy C.... I spent my days phoning the insurance company to remind them that this was one and the same person.
