Politically Inspired Baby Names: New Trend?

Here's something fun for you to chew on in honor of the upcoming election. After I posted my call for help in naming Baby Lump last week, one of my twitter pals, @petertdavis made me promise I wouldn't do something like this ...


Can you believe that guy? What a nimrod! Let me tell you, if James ever pulled a stunt like that, he'd get a lot more than two weeks in the doghouse. Let's see, which name would you give your child - Sarah McCain-Palin or Ava Grace?

By the way, I think I've come up with a pretty good boy name for Baby Lump - how about Joe Obama-Biden?

In other news, yesterday I hit a pretty big milestone, at least from my point of view. It was the first time a person gave up his seat on the T for me on account of my preggo belly. Hooray, baby bump! It's definitely becoming more substantial. Have you seen this week's pic compared to last week's? There's definitely a noticeable difference.

So I'm coming up on week 30 - can you believe it? It's getting so close! Baby Lump should now be using all five of his/her senses, his/her toenails are fully formed, and Lump's noggin is pretty much in proportion to the rest of his/her body. Baby Lump measures between 15 and 16 inches (think a loaf of bread) and weighs between 3 and 4 pounds (think a Macbook Air).

My Little Lump also seems to be a lot more active lately, as if to say "LET ME OUT!" Apparently, that's because of all the energizing fat he/she has been developing. In fact, if Lump were born sometime this week, he/she would have a 9 out of 10 chance of survival. Still, I think we'll keep him/her in there to bake a little while longer ...
