We like to have a sort of “placeholder name” for the baby. We don’t know the gender (nor will we, until s/he is born), so we can’t use their actual name even if we have them decided, and we want something to call them. So this little one is Spooky. S/he was conceived on Friday the 13th (yes, tmi, sorry), and someone on Hellobee commented when I mentioned it that we were having a spooky baby. Christopher is also calling them “Boo,” both as a play on spooky/ghosty, and because that was what he called one of his grandfathers. Also, I keep calling this one a her in person (no real reason, I just keep saying it), but I’ll probably just use him and her interchangeably. I don’t like it or them.
