Poll results, etc.
Thank you all for voting on the names. As you can see from the comments, we had some very mixed results. Several of you, I’m sad to see, took Kira’s side. Therefore, after several hours of contemplating and crying, I’ve decided to give up my fight for German names. That’s okay though – I knew it was only a pipe dream (sniff). Including the email votes with the comments on the blog, it appears that “Dieter” clearly won. Honorable mentions were “Johann” and “Wolfram”. Several of them, on the other hand, gained infamy pretty quickly. You know what? Fine. You can all be that way. Maybe I’ll just name him Peekay Desmondo Ricks. That’d be sweet. If we get some serious name possibilities, maybe we’ll have a legitimate poll. Of course, that all depends on the results from May 11th, when we will get another ultrasound that should tell us the child’s sex. Speaking of ultrasounds, here is a picture of our first one about 8 weeks ago. As you can see, Kira and I are the proud parents of a little 2.11 cm-long gray blob (it’s now about the size of an avocado). Isn’t it cute?
