It took every bit of the pregnancy for us to come up with a name for Kolby.

It took a matter of a day for Kolby to collect 3 nicknames:

"Chip Kolby Carl"

I must confess that I like the name Chip and so I have been telling everybody that I wanted to name the baby Chip.  Parker caught on and also said that he liked the name.  It got to the point that Parker would write his name all over his drawings and on random things all over the house.

When he came to the hospital for the first time to meet his brother he had been calling him "Chip Kolby Carl".

So I guess I finally get a "Chip" in the family!

"Baby Carl"

Apparently something got lost in translation when told that the baby's name was going to be Kolby Carl as he was calling Kolby "Baby Carl" when he came and visited him in the hospital.


The nurses at the hospital were great.  One of the nurses was very outspoken and opinionated.  Whenever she would refer to Kolby she would call him "Pipsqueak".  True, probably every baby she has attended received the same nickname, but Kolby is now added to that list.
