Yes, it’s true. We’re no longer the Beggs, our legal and official last name is now Vikesland (VEE kuhs lond). It’s a Norwegian name that belonged to a great-great-grandfather of Kabyn’s, back when a family was named after their farm.
Changing his last name is something Kabyn had thought about for a long time, and with little one here imminently soon, it became the right time for a decision. She’s still not here, but now everyone knows one of her three names!
Little girl is due this Thursday, the 18th, according to the doctor. Mommy Alyssa is feeling very ready, for the first time really, to be done being pregnant. This “pre-labor” business is not a fun experience, and not one we’d quite planned on. Daddy Kabyn is feeling excited. Pray we can rest, and enjoy our last hours/days/weeks/however long as just the two of us.
