Growing Up Geeky!

I would like to introduce my new blog design! It was done by Amber over at Zany Dezines. I am so happy with the way it turned out.  Do you like it?

"...And Baby Makes Three" was a great temporary name for my blog, but I really wanted something that would apply if/when we have more children, too.  While trying to come up with a new name I started with thinking about who M and I really are...

M is an organic chemist, plays the oboe, and slays videogame dragons in his free time. I test computer software, I was on the Math team in high school (and LOVED it), my reading material of choice is historical fiction about Tudor England, and I would rather alphabetize my spice rack than go to the Mall. We are proud to be not cool. And so "Growing Up Geeky" was born. With us for parents, I don't think Carina (or any other children we have) will end up being one of the cool kids in school and honestly, I think that's a good thing.

If you are the button-posting-on-your-blog type person, post my button! I think the geeky looking giraffes would make a fine addition to any blog. Come on, how can you not love the giraffes? ;)
