OK, after much thought and some input from others I have decided to rename "Bean".

Henceforth, the baby shall be referred to as "Plum".

I started calling the baby "Bean", because I don't like "it", or "that", or things of that nature. They all seem so impersonal for a person. And, until we know the sex of our child, we needed something unofficial to use. At the time I started using "Bean", the baby was about the size of a Lima bean. Now, the baby is about the size of a plum. I think plum will do for now. Don't get too used to it though. Next week, hopefully, "Plum" will be bigger and can use something like Navel Orange, or Grapefruit. (I don't actually eat any of these foods, so I'm not really sure why I choose these names to describe my child. Strange.)

Ya'll have a great day. It's 80 degrees here in NC, and BEAUTIFUL. Yippee!! Summer is just around the corner, and that makes me very happy.

Well, as you know, I like "plum", but we really have to think of something for the next phase besides "grapefruit."

Love ya!

Personally, I don't like any name from the vegetable or fruit world. We are talking about a human baby; we are talking about my grandchild! I refer to her/him as "the baby". That works for me. I guess you gotta do what works for you. Love you bunches 'Mater.
