It's weird how we know the exact minute that the baby was born. We even know the weight of the baby*. But we don't know the little fucker's name. I suggest the name "James" after Harry's real father.



* I've never understood why people want to know the weight of a baby. When I had my daughter, the first question most people asked was "what weight is she". It's really bizarre. Like, who cares what weight she is?

In the middle of an election in a country that has a majority of people that want a republic at some time it will be the same in Australia - all other news items play second fiddle to the baby.

I like Theolonius (after my favorite pianist) but it's Dutch, so probably not a contender.

Its all about asking a simple in the hopes you don't need to ask a difficult question and perhaps a question that is not so important with access to modern medical facilities. If the baby is too small or too big, then you may need to be concerned for the baby or the mother respectively. Our second was 1.5 pounds, that is One and a half pounds, not a typo. Normal range - who cares, otherwise...

P.S. He is OK thank God and an excellent Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that was beating the odds when he was born.

They've got every UK broadcaster in the country working overtime here. Tina Brown was on CBS This Morning to report on the baby. Put foot directly in mouth. Said Harry is with a descendant of plantation slaves. Then she backtracked and said he's married to her. Do we even know if Megan's ancestors were plantation slaves? Lol, I don't think she does well so early in the morning.

We didn't find out the sex of either of our kids until they were born. When our oldest was born (our son), we had boy and girl names picked out.

My wife comes from a family of all girls so after she had a son, she was certain that meant all she'd ever have were boys.

Imagine our surprise when our next child was a girl - and we didn't have an agreed-upon name. The doctor said, "Congratulations on your daughter, what is her name?" I said one name; my wife said another. The doctor said, "You two have something to talk about".

My wife and I held a vote and she prevailed, 1 vote to 1 vote.

Her choice was better, anyway.

M&H also broke with tradition and alerted the Spencer family right after the Royal family about the birth. There is also a rumor the name Spencer could be used in the new baby's name as a mini homage to Diana touched

That's what I said, Spencer. I think it would be a great name.


They are saying that she didn't have the baby at home like she wanted to.


Can't wait to hear what the name is.

Kid should have a regular normal name like Luke, David, etc. rather than some passed on formal names.
