Bens Woken Up!

A Big Baby
A Big Baby with Big Legs

Now Ben has a name he seems to have woken up and started kicking with all his might! He was kicking before but now its totally amazing. Yesterday morning he kicked away for nearly one Hour. He is keeping Sa away all the time now. When we asked the doctor she just laughed, said it was absolutely fine and told us we were going to have a very large very boisterous, little boy will keep our hands full. Well thanks Doctor!


Sa is definitely getting worried now, just by the size of her and feeling this little bundle in her tummy which kicks all day and night, I can just imagine how big a handful he is going to be.

Inevitably the conversation has turned to names now we know its a boy! We have spent many hours already compiling lists and having lots of discussion.

We are both agreed that his Surname (Namsacun in Thai) will be Vass, however the discussions ref his other names has been going on and on. We both agree we want a short name and an English name. This has helped somewhat and we now have a short list of names and gradually we are crossing them off.

Now we are down to two names Ben and Neo. I like Neo because of the film Matrix but is this a good enough reason to give our poor little boy a name like Neo!

Me thinks not!

So a great compromise has been reached. I am going to call our new Cat Neo which means our Son is going to be Ben Edward Vass. Oh boy this house is going to be so full soon with Neo the Cat, Lucky the Dog, Ben, Pat, Purn Cha’s Daughter (as yet un-named) and all the rest of the family. I am so glad we actually live a few minutes away and can at least escape the madness sometimes.
