A couple of weeks ago (or was it last week? I tell you, time has gotten away from me...perhaps it's blown away in the lovely
Um Suzie. Right.
Only that's not really her name anymore. It's actually Suzanne. Cause' somewhere between now and that awkward stage aforementioned, we all grew up and decided that our given names weren't so bad. Which is great, only now a lot, we stand around and say things like, "Hey...um, ah, well...you! Have you met _____ (damn) ?" Although, I think there might be an unspoken rule that if someone knew you as a previous name we are all getting to the age where we can't remember anything but that, so the previous name kind of grandfathered in.
Only I like the name Sadira now...I'd much rather be called by that name, rather than Sadie.
But, even my mom's confused sometimes...so we just kind of go with whatever pops out of anyones mouth at any given time.
Which is why people are now calling me Sam.

Other than through her blog. Well, and when she was pregnant, but that hardly counts. I will now take a moment to say what a cutie!
What a cutie!
And, he looks just like himself.
Which he should be happy to know...so we can only infer that there is no baby identity theft ring going on in their neck of the woods, and that Suzanne's blog is indeed accurate.
I'm just anxious to know exactly what he's going to change his name to...
