Being very pregnant I have several things that have been pestering me (ok...annoying me) these past few weeks. Both relate to pregnancy and the need to keep secrets. I have a firm belief that if you know the sex of your baby you should feel obligated to share that with those who love you (you'll get more gifts that way anyways). Likewise...if you have chosen a name...waiting to share the name before the birth of the child will not jinx the birth in any fashion. I'm sure there are people who can come up with numerous reasons to keep these informational tidbits a secret...but I cannot.
With that being said. I have an introduction to make!
Sam has been our "back-up name" for each of the girls and Ellis is a family name. A has been telling everyone that his middle name is "Alice" but I think we will stick with Ellis just the same.
Which brings me to the rest of my post.
I have two sisters who I adore....The Writer and The Librarian. They are both insanely creative in their own rights.
Combined with the fact that I have been shopping in excess for this baby (I know that is hard to believe)...and he needs not one stitch of clothing for at least the next year of his life...my sister (The Librarian) put her sewing prowess to work. She came this past weekend with her adorable family (see this post) and brought a special present for the baby....his FIRST SUPERHERO! At first I thought it was Super MAN but was later corrected that is is actually Super SAM. And of course she provided the perfect Superman-ish onsie and cape...because all babies need a special outfit to wear when they bravely fight evil and rid the world of injustice!
Anyways...I hope you enjoy SuperSAM as much as we are!
And on a side note...THANKS to all of you who have sent sweet messages about the fact that I am STILL pregnant :) I will be sure to post a quick note on my blog when we are heading to the hospital. If he hasn't made his debut by Monday my Dr. is planning on scheduling an induction. It figures that I would spent 5 weeks on bed rest trying to PREVENT labor...now he seems to have had a change of heart and is quite content to live out the last few weeks in amniotic bliss :)
