BABY STILL GROWING

In about 9 short weeks, another baby will join the Cupit family. The baby has not been featured much while in the womb, so a progress report is in order. Some Chronicle readers may have already heard that this little baby has a 2 vessel cord, which is also called a single umbilical artery. Simply, this means the baby has one artery in the umbilical cord instead of two. So far, this complication has been harmless. Growth, the largest concern, is ahead of schedule. The doctors say the baby is on track to be the same healthy size as Laurel and Brant.

Maren and Brad are steadily trying to commit to names. The favorites so far are Chase for a boy and Laney or Anna for a girl. Middle names are a whole other challenge.

Just this weekend, Maren and Brad moved the beds of both older children into the same room. The nursery is a bit disheveled still, but soon things will all come together. Hopefully, "soon" will happen before Maren is off to the hospital to deliver the baby!
