Thanks. :D

No real anouncement, just an off-handed comment in another thread that another rabbit had died. I think xander was the only one to even notice.

With 'Mom' crying over the drop of a hat, then looking to tear someone a new one the next (emotional bounces we didn't see with Drake), we're suspecting this time it'll be a girl. :D

(I didn't mean to hijack the thread, honestly!)

trickfred, I think you should name this one minifred. Or, if you have twins, name one of them Control, and the other Treatment. That's what I plan to do when we have kids. :)

I think so, but wendryn doesn't like the idea. However, she has approved the following two names (one for a boy, one for a girl):

Yekaterina Elizabeth Anne Henderson
Yuri Edwin Ambrose Henderson

We are hoping that he or she turns out to be a very positive person. Also, as my name starts with 'x', and hers with 'w', in order of age, our initials would be wxy, to be followed by a second kid whose name starts with a 'z'. We are evil people.

Evil? No. Possibly not looking out for the future of the child in their name? Yes. ;)

Evil is naming your child with a name that is clearly ment for the opposite sex. Like boys called Lucy or girls called Ashley (do *not* make me break out the orgin of the name and prove that there's many girls in the US walking around with a boys name).

If you really wanted to be evil, just name your child something like..
