First Post of Many

This is the first post of many to come from the Baker's in Texas. Now that we are having a baby (we don't know the sex), we figure we had better connect with the rest of the outside world. This has become especially true since so many of you, our dear friends, live so far away. Sarah's parents are going to arrive tonight for all of the Christmas fun. We don't have much planned because Sarah isn't exactly fleet of foot anymore.

I did learn a new word this week.

"Cankle" = when your calves and your ankles have blown up to such a point that you can no longer tell the difference between the two. That is all I will say on that topic, but as you can imagine this won't be the only time I throw that word out. New words are so fun to work into any and all conversations.

If you don't know, since we did not find out the sex we are referring to the baby as "Comet". Once the baby is born we are going to wait 3 years before deciding on a name, that way we can really let the personality of the baby determine what name is appropriate. (wink, wink)
