in celebration of our first baby z blogging day, i present to you a collage of this morning's ultrasound photos; another zalben/zalben collaboration:

Fathers Day

Hey everybody, A. here, the guy who's 50% responsible for Baby Z.

Unlike MOST expectant father's out there (you know who I'm talking about), I've tried to be as involved in this process as possible, from blogging (natch), to going to appointments with M., to holding the baby in my uterus while M. takes a nap.

On a related note, using our initials really makes me feel like we're in a Bond movie called "Nine Months Is Not Enough."

Anyway, as M. mentioned, now we kind of sort of know the sex of the baby, it's mainly about deciding on names. However, since she already covered that in her post, I'm going to suggest you comment with your best Baby Bond movie name. Then when we have a name for the baby, and a name for the movie, I'll photoshop a movie poster.

By the way, M. loves stuff like this. Loves it.

Blog is go!

hello, blogosphere!

ever since announcing our pregnancy, A. and i have been asked "when are you going to start a blog?" the answer, my friends & family, is today. we started off the day with a nuchal translucency screening, which went extremely well. we got to see the baby, we saw actual thumb-sucking, and were told that the baby is cute. also, without giving us the official word, our technician let us know that the baby is, in all likelihood, though it could change at any moment, a girl.

leave name suggestions in the comments - we're leaning towards "m" names, but are open, and any suggestions including middle names will be looked upon favorably.
