Team Frederick or Team Josephina?

Tiny Teague gets a little more “real” tomorrow. It’s our 20(ish) week appointment, and that means GENDER ultrasound! There wasn’t much debate on if we would find out the baby’s gender during the pregnancy. Garrett really wants to know, and I give in too easily 🙂

The terms of my compromise are that at least one baby will be kept a surprise from us (yes, this means we are planning to have kids, plural). Also, I don’t want to name Tiny Teague until I meet him or her once its born. I want to have at least one secret, even if that means my Jax friends can’t monogram initials on everything ahead of the birth (sorry, LL!) We have a list of names, and after tomorrow’s reveal we’ll only have to work on narrowing down half that list into the coolest initials we can come up with (TNT!), but that’s a topic for another day.

In lieu of a real name for Tiny Teague, we created awesome fake names that we will use for the next 20-or-so weeks: Frederick or Josephina. (Note: Best said in a hilariously awful accent for full effect). As I reassured one skeptical colleague earlier today, these names are just for fun and most likely won’t be anything close to what we decide for the baby’s name.

Just for fun, we wanted to put a poll out there and find out, ARE YOU TEAM FREDERICK OR TEAM JOSEPHINA?

Early tallies from today are two friends for Frederick and one (PGA TOUR player) vote for a Josephina. For the record, I’m on team “healthy baby,” while Garrett is leaning towards Frederick…

So you’re probably wondering how we’ll announce the news. Stay close to our blog, your email or Twitter (@laurentee and @hooligantx). We’re going to post a video on the blog sometime tomorrow, so everyone can find out at the same time.

Now that we’re only hours from discovering if Tiny Teague is a Frederick or a Josephina, the whole baby thing is becoming as real as this bump I can’t hide with golf clothes much anymore. Trust me, I tried over the last 10 days at Pebble Beach and Riviera! Here’s the week 19 photo from this morning. Tiny Teague loves travel (or at least doesn’t hate me for five flights in ten days) and has been well-fed in many great California cafeterias and restaurants.

Don’t forget to share your pick for team Frederick and Josephina. We’ll see you tomorrow with the news!!
