Hey, like most personal web sites, this site is
still under construction, so none of these links
work. But they look good, so that's why there
here. Don't try clicking on them until we get a
digital camera and can add some stuff, okay?
The big news in Philadelphia is coming in a very little package.
Heidi and David, recently reunited after two years of bicoastal
marital commuting, are expecting a baby in August! Ultrasound
already predicts that the new little Bau will be a boy, so the
two parents-to-be find themselves rattling their brains (and
rattling their friends) in search of a good name. Three-syllable
names seem to be winning out. The current contenders: Anthony,
Jonathan, Christopher, and Timothy. The current debate: is Anthony too
Italian for a little Asian boy? The couple is said to be seeking the
guidance of Uncle-to-be Kevin on this weighty matter.
Extra weight is a new problem that Heidi must deal with now. Usually
light on her feet, she is slowing down a bit as the additional pounds
of pregnancy add up. "Only one on-call day left as an intern!" she exclaimed
wearily yesterday before going to bed. Heidi gets two weeks of
vacation before she begins her second year of residency.
Meanwhile, the soon-to-be-grandparents Rachel and Paul are starting
to get excited. On their Father's day road trip this weekend, they're
sure to help Heidi and David pick out baby furniture. Recently
retired, Grandpa is hinting that he may be able to help take care
of the little one. Now this has Grandma thinking about
her own retirement.
Premier Issue of Bau Family Online News Live On The Web Today
The first issue of the Bau Family Online News went
live on the internet today, hosted at home1.gte.net/dbau.
"It's really just a site for baby pictures," explains David
Bau, president, CEO, chief pundit, and dishwasher for the
online rag. "It kind of looks like cnet, though."
Although customers are satisfied with the content at its debut, they
are dismayed by how difficult it is to remember the URL. "Such a long
address! I have to write it down!" said Rachel Bau. Management is
already considering purchasing a better domain name for $100, but
the obvious choice, bau.com, is already taken by a German construction
organization. Perhaps bau-family or baunews.com? Paul Bau thinks it
would be wise to stake out the property.
But all in all, the Online News is off to an auspicious start.
"Nice," says Kevin. "I like the colors," says Eric Vasilik.
Paul and Rachel are planning a trip to New York City and Philadelphia
this weekend. Current word is that Paul will be driving down on
Thursday to visit a coin show, and Rachel will follow on Friday.
They're expected in Philadelphia Sunday, and they will return
home to Boston Tuesday morning.
Despite the coin show, speculation on the street is that the
trip's real purpose is for Dad Paul to get some good treatment
from his sons on Father's Day.
During the trip the family will meet up with old close friends
Yen Tan and family (in New York) and Brian Yee and family (in
Philadelphia). There's sure to be plenty of good food - let's see
if anybody can stick to their diets!
