Baby Names

so david and i have been having the baby name conversation lately. we've had our favorites picked out for a while, but narrowing down - really just the boy name - has been more difficult. it makes me think of one of my favorite gilmore girls scenes when lane finds out she's pregnant.

RORY: you are way ahead of a lot of people as far as parenting skills go, like Britney. Britney Spears does not know which end of a baby goes up. And Courtney Love? She's no June Cleaver.

LANE: yeah, i bet i could be a better mother than Courtney Love.

RORY: my sock drawer could be a better mother. but, yes, of course you would be. and Michael Jackson - you know not to name a child "Blanket."

LANE: i do know that. do not name your baby after an inanimate object.

RORY: see? way ahead of the pack.

LANE: yeah. hey...I wonder if, um, Blanket ever met Tom and Katie's baby, Pillow.

RORY: yeah, that would be a perfect play date.

LANE: yeah, when it's nap time they would be totally set.

RORY: and then they could invite Gwyneth's Apple over afterward for a little snack.

LANE: Banjo, Rachel Griffith's baby, could play for them.

RORY: and then they could all jump in Mia Farrow's Satchel and make fun of, uh...what's his face?

LANE: oh, Pilot Inspektor Lee.

RORY: yeah.

...stupid celebrities.

also, i think this book looks so cute.

I assume this means you aren't sharing yet...

P.S. You are stunning. I love that pic at the top (I usually just read your posts in google reader so I haven't been to the page in a while).
