I'm not gonna diss you on the internet, cause my momma taught me better than that

When I learned that Beyonce was pregnant, I cried. I cried because a) I'm pregnant and I cry about everything, b) I really like Beyonce and feel like I would get along with her if ever we were to meet, and c) I really like Jay-Z and the idea of him and Beyonce together and the the idea of them giving the world the gift of their offspring. For the past few months it's been fun to have something in common with someone as awesome as Beyonce. I just didn't realize how much we had in common. Have you ever met anyone named Ivy? Ever? In your life? Me neither. Which is why we thought Ivy was a safe choice as far as originality is concerned. Little did we know that Beyonce and I share a brain wave. On January 7 She and Jay-Z welcomed their baby girl Blue Ivy into their lives. And their baby Ivy is already way upstaging our baby Ivy. On the 7th the Empire State Building was lit in blue. No joke. And Jay-Z has already dropped a single about his daughter. Sorry, our baby Ivy. We haven't chosen what color of Ivy you are or made any arrangments to light up any buildings and we're not quite finished writing our rap about your birth yet. But I did wash all your onesies if that counts for anything. We're sticking with the name. Because, well, we called it first. And there were four Megans in my second grade class. I lived.

In other news, I'm dialated to a 1. And baby's head is low. My hospital bag is packed. Camera charged. Playlist made. So...we wait.


  1. I have to laugh because I was one of the Megan's in the second grade. Remember in 9th grade when Mr Sutherland put all three Megan's in our English class in a row just thinking it would be fun?! Congrats Meg and good luck!

  2. If it makes you feel any better, we named our youngest daughter Emma and then WHAM! Three months later Ross and Rachel on Friends named their baby Emma. So I like to think of myself as a trendsetter. You are too! Your Ivy is a lucky, lucky girl.

    Oh, and I am a Jenny. Good grief there were about 1.5 million Jennys at my high school graduation.

  3. Megan, I know you feel my pain. J, I remember hearing Emma on Friends and thinking it was such a cute name.


Don't be shy.
