    Thanks ajh! I was at the midwife this morning and delivery does not appear to be imminent unfortunately so it seems we have a bit longer to wait before we can meet her and make our final decision......

    Thanks everyone for your responses! I think it bothers me too much so we'll keep it as a backup to our backups, but since we both also like Audrey that will most likely be our first choice. (The...

    Elsa was one of my top choices. My husband dislikes it so it isn't an option for us, but he thought the movie made it more wearable/ likable. However, I also have the fear that it will become very...
