"on the 11th day..."

Kevin started singing a song yesterday... "The 12 Days until Her Due Date," of course sung to the much better known song "The 12 Days of Christmas."

He so lovingly changed many words while keeping the tune. "On the 12th day until her due date, my chubby wife said to me..." And now he is coming up with things I say every day. He also uses "chubby" interchangeably with "fat." Most of the women at school cannot believe that I am not greatly offended, but I know that's how Kevin loves me. I know, it's odd. But I do laugh at how he manages to come up with these things. Plus, that is just Kevin's personality, and I told him he can't call me fat after our BABY (Are you pleased, Stef?!) is born.

Speaking of us not using the term "baby" all the time, I must say that this has part to do with Seinfeld. Kevin and I love watching that show and have several seasons on DVD that we are rewatching, now that we don't have television. But fans will remember the episode where this couple only talks about "the baby" all the time and uses that in every sentence. "When are you going to come see the baby?" "Come look at the baby?" "Isn't the baby just gorgeous?" Jerry, Elaine, and crew keep making fun of the way they say it and how often they say it. So every time I say or hear "the baby," all I can think of is that. I just hear that woman's voice... It was quite annoying.

Well said honey. Nobody wants to hear fanatic parents talk about their baby with every sentence.

And let it be known that you look amazing.

Baby is much more endearing. Maybe I should start calling your kid cone head or something when he's born.

Kevin said...

Cone head works. I plan on calling him "my little ball of excrement". I think that defines endearing.

I LOVE that episode! And I especially love Kramer's reaction to seeing the baby for the first time... classic :) Kevin - I love the comment to your wife about her looking amazing. I have no doubt that she's beautiful. Though I also have to laugh about your song. Someday you'll have to sing it for us :) We miss you guys!! I can't wait for "the baby" to come! :) LOVE YOU BOTH!
