Thanks, man! Both birth experiences were pretty similar for me (in that they both sucked, haha), so that's what I think of as normal. It's so weird to me that some people stroll in and just pop out a kid in a couple of hours. Lucky bastards. But yeah, with Marion I had a softball-sized tumor removed, and then Alice had a knot in her umbilical cord. Birth is terrifying.
Alice June means...absolutely nothing, haha. We used up our family names on Marion! I guess we just naively expected this one would be a boy (Jack Watson, also family names), so we had nothing prepared. I stole "June" from a Facebook acquaintance's kid, and "Alice" was just a name we both liked. It's British-y but not weird-sounding for an American (David loved "Tamsin," which is normal in the UK but sounds pretty weird to me), and the initials—A.J.—happened to be a subtle nod to some other family members (my other grandmother, Ann, and David's grandpa Jack). Basically, we just agreed to try it out for a week and see if we liked it, but as soon as we heard Marion say "Baby Alice in mommy's tummy!" I couldn't imagine any other name.
Um, our house is totally normal sized. David is crazy. It's four bedrooms, but three of them are tiny—it's an old house—and one is basically just a big open space in the finished basement. That's where all our guests are cramming in. The first guests arrive today and I AM NOT READY.
