My friend Katie somehow had the time and presence of mind to post a bulletin on Myspace letting us all know that her water broke and she is on her way to the hospital to have her baby. Her thought on this -- "Holy crap!"
Which, yeah. That pretty much sums it up. She also texted my cell phone about an hour ago to let me know she was going to the hospital and I texted back my good wishes. Such a crazy high-tech, instant-information world we live in!
Anyway, all of the "group" - that is, all of our friends from college who are part of this group - are abuzz with this information and we've all been calling each other and instant messaging each other. The baby is a boy and the name is, as of yet, unrevealed. They've tossed around a few possibilities but I'm starting to think perhaps those were just to derail us and they're going to bust out a name previously unmentioned, like Jerome, or Lucien, or Patricio. We know they don't want a "typical" name for their kid -- no Davids or Johns or that kind of thing for them.
I'll post the name and hopefully a photo if the new parents agree. Here's wishing Katie as easy a labor as one can have. We can't wait to meet the new boy!
