Baby December Update

Hello Everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for replying on my blog posts. I've read a lot of nice names, even though I didn't like all of them (of course). I am going to remember the nice ones. (how about Stitch?) In about a month, we will know if it's going to be a boy or a girl. Something that we would like to know, but are not going to tell the family or friends yet.

Mayuko is also feeling a lot better recently, and her belly is growing bigger and bigger... There even was a store clerk who asked her if she was pregnant. because she is doing a lot better we are planing a trip to Tokyo for a couple of days.

About an hour ago, we were still inside the clinic. Mayuko had another check and we could see the baby again... It's really growing bigger, we could even see the bones, and hear the heartbeat. Mayuko has to come back next month, and hopefully we can bring another Echo with us.

If anyone is still having some tips... just shoot them.

I like them, even though they are maybe a bit too Japanese. I love the name Sakura

What about 'Naomi' for a girl ?
