what's in a name?

for months, (around 8 to be exact), dearie and i have been racking our brains to try to come up with a proper name for our coming addition. we feel like the pressure of naming another human being, basically setting them up for a lifetime of whatever that name might bring them, is just too much for us.
here are our top five:
1. harlan (current favorite)
2. ivan
3. evan
4. holden
5. we don't really have a top five

please weigh in.

one day in mexico

it takes no time at all to get into mexico from san diego. you basically drive right into tijuana, they don't even stop you. we had a nice, drive down the coast, stopping in rosarito to do some shopping (bought some amazing decorations for the baby's room)...then, back to the border. it took us 2 hours to get out of mexico. sitting in traffic, badly having to urinate, watching the peddlers sell churros, lucha masks, and bleeding wooden crosses. a lovely way to spend an evening. Posted by Picasa

san diego, ca...miss the warmth already

last trip before baby...there he is, in my ginourmous belly, waiting to see the sights of san diego. Posted by Picasa

the seals in la jolla cove, tanning on the rocks. you could only get about 100 feet from them, as they don't care for humans that much, but still, quite an adorable sight to see. Posted by Picasa

having lunch in la jolla, ca...i can barely describe the beauty of the pacific really just must see it, and i think this little town might be one of the better vantage points. Posted by Picasa

polar polar bears. Posted by Picasa

the polar bears at the zoo were so fun and graceful...much larger than i had imagined...seeing them upclose was incredible. Posted by Picasa

of course, the giant pandas at the san diego zoo, a must see for anyone of any age. miss su lin, the baby, was lounging high up in the trees and didn't feel like coming down for a visit, but i'm sure she's as cute as all her glamourshots. look at that face!! Posted by Picasa

amazing cafe in balboa park, where i had a lovely veggie burger with avocado. Posted by Picasa
