What's in a name?

Joyce is coming along nicely with her pregnancy. As of right now, its about approaching 6 months. What's next? Apart from receiving some baby clothes and receiving some toys, it's time to think of a name.

We really want a unique name. Yet it must not sound strange. Challenging!

Proverbs 22:1

New King James Version (NKJV)

Proverbs 22

 1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
      Loving favor rather than silver and gold.

We came up with a few that we both agreed upon.

1) Edison \e-di-son\ as a boy's name is pronounced ED-ih-sun. It is of Old English origin, and the meaning of Edison is "son of Edward". The name is used in honor of inventor Thomas Edison.

2)Leon \leon\ as a boy's name is pronounced LEE-ahn. It is of Greek origin. Variant of Leo. Thelion is a central figure in the art and religious symbolism of many different cultures, usually meaning kinglinessgrandeur, and courage. See also LionelAuthor Leon Uris.

3)Toby \t(o)-by\ as a boy's name (also used as girl's name Toby), is pronounced TOH-bee. It is of English origin. Short form of Tobias (Hebrew) "God is good". Actor Tobey Maguire.

We sort of decided on Toby for now. Of course things might change.

Money doesn't grow on trees

With reference to my wife's blog on her finding a cheque in the mail, (http://joyciejewel.blogspot.com/2011/08/ive-got-cheque-in-mail.html) I myself am quite capable of earning money the "unconventional" way.

Guess what I found on the ground today!

It's not much, but its $2 out of thin air. Nobody claimed it, so I claimed it. 

I suddenly remembered a few years ago, I picked up money on the ground on 2 separate occasions within the space of a few days. I must have been good.

They say money don't grow on trees. 

(At least they stay on ground)

It's a boy!

 Joyce is finally 5 months pregnant, went to do a full scan to check the baby's health. So far so good! Look at the spine!
For the first few visits, the gynae already suspected that its a boy, but she kept saying it can only be "confirmed" on the fifth month. And there you go, this is the proof. 
 Many of you probably won't be able to make out the abstract pictures above. The one below is the clearest.
You can see him looking at you. If you can't make out what this is, I can't help you.
Joyce went "crazy" and went to buy this burberry romper for our baby. Quite ex hor. Burberry (real one). One piece only some more. 
 I was joking me and Joyce don't even have a burberry anything. Yet our kid already has one waiting for him before he is born. HOR MIA!
