Name? Name?....

We don't need no stinkin' name!

Actually, that's about what it was starting to feel like. We couldn't settle on anything. We went through every computation of all the names we had been tossing about the past few months and nothing was working. But, like she did with Sophie Bess, Abby again nailed it.

Our baby boy is Brazos John Joseph Tankersley. (We got both of the grandfathers' names in there). Yes, it's a mouthful, but when the boy is blessed (?) with the last name Tankersley, anything you add to it is going to be a bunch. He'll be the only kid in his class who will write "See pg. 2" on the headings of his papers.

We greatly appreciate the name suggestions we have received. Terry Keith Hughes Tankersley did not make it past the first round of voting though Bubba T. Tankersley got some strong consideration. My suggestion of Elvis as a first, middle or even second middle name got shot down pretty quickly, as did my entry of Brazos Graceland. Go figure.

Today was a good day. Brazos ate a few times (he's latching on to the source of his food really well; I'm very proud!) and was circumsized this afternoon. After that, he pretty much slept the rest of the day.

Abby is feeling good as well. The doctor came by a few times today and said after he makes his early-morning rounds tomorrow, we'll be free to go. So we should be home by mid-morning.

Thanks to everyone for the very kind e-mails. We'll make them part of Brazos' baby book.
