The current front runners are Jackson Thomas (after the shoeless one and the doubting apostle) and Morgan Rose (no explanation needed). I've offered up Eppa for a girl on countless occasions only to be shot down. Jackson Thomas is also on the brink after I suggested his nickname could be Stonewall.
I'd love to offer more than a stock smiley for your input, but it's all I've got.
Thanks in advance.
Why doesn't she want to know the sex? It makes things so much easier. All of your gifts won't be yellow and ducks. I have heard the reasoning of "we want to be surprised." You can be surprised at the ultrasound. "Surprise....your having a........."
Makes things a lot easier for the people buying your gifts too, if they know the sex. A yellow baby room full of ducks is generic, and they might grow up wanting to sell insurance.
