A Jen by Any Other Name

...would be Harpo's mom! As of 3:00 this afternoon (and 4 court visits, a lot of tedium, legal notices three weeks running, and certified letters to all of my creditors), Cait and I are now both legally and officially Cait and Jen SameLastName!

NOW, Harpo, you can REALLY be born.


  • Yay!!!!!!!!!
    That is seriously exciting.
    Come on, Harpo SameLastName.

  • So exciting!!! You may have talked about this before, but do you mind sharing how you decided on a last name? My wife and I are having SERIOUS problems making this decision.

    Yea for the SameLastName family!

  • It's really a shame that this is as momentous an occasion as it is. Congrats, in a "our country sucks for not recognizing that love is love, no matter who the players are" sort of way. Enjoy the hassles that come with a name change!

  • It's a great feeling isn't it??? We did that on Friday - and we both talked about feeling like...we were somehow now "more" a family...even though our names shouldn't really did.

    Good luck on making Harpo listen to you. I uhm, think it's something you'll deal with after he/she's born too:)

  • Yippee! have you practiced writing your new name yet?? And do you guys have a Costco near you? I uploaded some new photos to them and noticed that they do photographic gifts like custom stationery (really reasonable) could take a family picture when Harpo is born and use it for your thank-you cards =)

  • Congratulations Jen and Cait!

  • Yay for getting through bureaucrazy!

    I remember how many steps were involved from back when Wes did it so I know how much annoyingness it takes.

    Congrats. Can't wait to hear how Harpo's name beautifully blends.

  • Congratulations! That's really exciting. Not that it's quite the same, but my husband and I hyphenated when we got married, and now our kidlets share the same name. People still don't get that a man can change his name, though. They get so confused about the hyphen!

  • Woo hoo!!!

    By Blogger hd, at 10:22 AM  

  • Congratulations! It's the greatest feeling, isn't it??!!

    NOW, Harpo will come...

  • Yay! Great news!

    Ok, little baby, come out and play!

    By Blogger Trista, at 1:21 PM  

  • Great news! Except in the beginning I though Harpa had been BORN! You know... harpo's mom, three this afternoon...
    How dare you tease us like that.
