We call it, “it” or sometimes “him”

A post from two years ago, when I was pregnant:

I’ve read a mommy blog or two. What can I say? I’m nosy.

All those moms-to-be they have cute names for their unborn, like peach or plum or peanut.

I’ve already been asked what we call him. And I’ve already felt bad for not having an appropriately cute answer (let the mom-guilt begin).

I call him, “him” and before we knew it was a him, “the baby.”

Perhaps the nicknames arrive organically or perhaps they are manufactured for the blog-sphere.  Either way our unborn is likely not getting a better name than “baby” for quite some time, heck we haven’t even come up with a real name yet, let alone his online persona.
