His Name

We've been calling the baby "Tollie" for several months, planning to give him Grandpa Rod's name, Tolliver.

Tucker knows his brother's name, and uses it to talk about him:
"Tollie is still browing."
"Baby Tollie will drink milk."
"Look at what Tollie drawed all over the floor."

So, we already have a bit of finger-pointing to discourage.
But also, we have a name.

Finding out that someone you already love with all your heart is going to be named after you doesn't make for a typical Tuesday morning. For right now I just feel like taking a baby book over and reading it to Jenni's belly. I love all you guys.

I already thought it was the coolest name I'd heard in a while - and then I saw Grandpa Rod's comment, above.

Why can't every Grandpa be like that? You are a keeper, Grandpa Rod!!

Tollie! We can't wait to meet you (at just the right time).

Thinking of your lovely family,

Cathy in Missouri

Tollie and Tucker? It's so cute I can't take it. I wish I had a Grandpa...or Dad...like Grandpa Rod! :)

'Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.' I am glad to call you friends, and even though years may separate us, hearts remember. Love to all, Yvonne Brown Hall

G' Rod...that is sooo cool...you've earned it, many times over!
Jenni Baby...think about it...along with "C", you will soon be dealing with "T" &(N) "T". Better rent, "The Hurt Locker"! Good Luck!

Very cool!

I knew the minute I read your post that Rod would be thrilled; and, obviiously he was. It's a great name and honors a great guy!!
