So, I, Jeff, am fairly fond of Frey Baby… now pronounced “frybb”… isn’t that catchy? Stephanie, however, has been calling the little one “panda.” “WHY PANDA, Jeff… WHY?” people ask. Well, I’ll let her tell you…
Our first ultrasound was when we were seven weeks, and immediately upon looking at the image I said “it looks like a panda.” AND… an image of a panda was much more welcoming to me than thinking about a little ‘blob’ in my stomach. So, the name has stuck with me! We are affectionately referring to our frey baby as ‘panda’ until we know the sex and have another name (aren’t we, Jeff). On Mother’s Day this year, Jeff gave me a little stuffed panda that is now dear to my heart. There are some pictures of it below… and I’ve asked Jeff to do a little image editing as well.
P.S. Sam, the silky terror, apparently does not like the panda and has attempted to decapitate it’s head… hopefully this is not an early sign of sibling rivalry.
So, as you can see… the little panda is doing quite well in there. Though the more recent sonogram was amazing in the detail… no longer a panda… it looks like a grown up human already. So, whether you like freybb or panda, we’ll hopefully know the gender soon so we can say “him” or “her.” Until then, no “it” references please. :)
Hello world! If you haven’t heard yet, Jeff and Stephanie are pregnant!!! (Well, actually, Stephanie is pregnant, Jeff is just trying not to faint at the doctor visits.) This is awesome news as this is obviously our first human child after 14 years of marriage (Samson is currently our K9 child), and we hope you are as excited as we are to meet Frey Baby.
We’re going to use this website throughout the pregnancy to post news updates, pictures, and gather support for things like voting on “help us name our baby”… or suggest your own… we reserve the right to veto anything though… or we might end up with “Willy Marsh Rice Speros Martel MBYM Frey.” — Daddy, was I named after a dormitory? — Of course not son. It’s a “college.” Get it right. Martel IS a “college.”
More to come…
(Jeff + Stephanie)
