We finally have a blog name for Atticus!

Not that it has been critical, since I haven’t posted in almost a month. I don’t even have a good excuse, other than the fact that we have two children under the age of two and in diapers.

Yeah, it’s a lame excuse… but still.

Anyhoo. We bounced around a lot of nicknames, but nothing seemed to stick.

And Atticus wasn’t helping any; unless we wanted to call him “Wailer”. And now that I think of it, that’s a pretty good name for him given his penchant for crying.

It’s not that bad; he only cries when he’s hungry or his diaper is dirty.

Or he’s tired.

Oh, and at bath time.

Also when the sun is up.

And most the night.

Truthfully, he’s gotten better in the last couple of weeks. But we still have frequent flair ups.

No, Wailer won’t do. Neither will anything else P.Pie or I could come up with.

Instead, we are going with the name that The Squeaker calls her brother – Axe… with a little modification. Squeak adds the sh sound to the end, so it comes out Axsh.

And she elongates the middle of it, so it sounds like Accksshhh. But who wants to be called something that sounds like a flat tire at low speed when you can be an implement of destruction?

Welcome to the show, Axe. Brace yourself.

Good brace!

He is so beautiful, and he looks so healthy and so strong. I am sure his guardian angel/big brother and his gorgeous big sister are pleased....and I am so happy for all of you.

It is amazing how you can come to care so deeply for people you may never meet anywhere but here, but I do. I am glad this story had a happier ending.

And oh!! He DOES look befitting of 'Axe.'
