Rampant Speculation Based on a Grainy Photo for $500:

Norma Gilligan has a few pics up of Edgar and Rachel's shower this weekend. She posted a pic of "the sisterhood" that includes an odd shot of Campbell standing behind Daisy. Campbell is either arching her back in a really unnecessary and awkward fashion, or she's got a visibly rounded abdomen for other reasons.

Adeline just posted some pics that had me thinking the same thing.

Yup. Her story also makes me suspect about Martha, but that could be a hoodie with a kangaroo pocket. Incidentally, did you notice that they changed Bret's name to Brian?

Bethany Lane's baby is going to be named Camille Alexandria. Pretty name. Maybe they're switching letters every 3 kids?

I did not, just assumed there were so many goddamned kids around that there might as well be one or two named Brian. That's interesting!

I’m not big on changing names but that is one situation where I definitely would. Of course I would talk to my child about it and he would help with coming up with his new name. I wouldn’t just pick it myself.

I read an interesting article in the New York Times  Opinion page article by Vanessa Barbara (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/16/opinion/brazil-gender-alves.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage) It is about the gender policies in Brazil but it applies to fundies and their babies. Here is a quote I found particularly interesting.

"The Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby, in her show “Nanette,” once joked that one of the ways you can tell that there’s too much hysteria around gender from the “gender-normals” of the world is the habit of putting pink headbands on bald babies. “That’s weird,” the comedian said. “I mean, seriously, would you put a bangle on a potato?”

And yet, strangers in the street find it appropriate to ask why my daughter — who is adorable but, realistically, not un-potato-like at this stage — is not wearing delicate earrings, a ribbon in her hair or a pink tutu. It doesn’t get any better when you dig into the reasoning behind it: As Ms. Gadsby says, parents do it because they are tired of seeing their beautiful baby girl being mistaken for a boy because she has no hair. Why this would be such a bad thing doesn’t have to be explained — it’s understood that it would be a calamity. (“The thing is, I don’t assume bald babies are boys. I assume they’re angry feminists, and I treat them with respect,” Ms. Gadsby jokes.)"

They called him "Lil' Bit Smit" for years, so I would assume that anything else would be a welcome relief.
