There’s just something about a newborn baby that draws attention. Every where I go there are oos and ahs and stares. If people are close enough they always ask, “What’s his name?” Several times now I’ve gone blank. What is my baby’s name? It’s embarrassing! I think for the most part it has come to me before it was obvious, but I leave shaking my head. What is wrong with me?
When he has just a couple of weeks old, the other kids were all in their rooms for quiet time, and I was sitting on the couch holding Bobby. I was talking to him and went to use his name… The only names that came to mind were all the ones we thought about naming him but didn’t. I kept thinking it would come to me. I racked my brain. One minute went by, two, five. This was crazy! How was I going to remember my baby’s name? Then the answer came to me. I was saved! Facebook. I posted his name on Facebook when I was at the hospital. Quickly, I opened my account, scrolled down, and there it was, “Bobby.” I kid you not!
