Congrats, Ace! While I think the name Leia is cool, just be aware that you might change your mind at the last minute.
I was gonna name my son Trevor (after my favourite hockey player), but a month before his birth, my coworker also had a son and named him Trevor! So I named him Brendan instead (another hockey player, and as a result he shares my initials: BMW). He didn't really "look" like a Trevor anyway.

Great post, thepatient
! The part I quoted you above couldn't be more true. I totally felt useless when my wife was giving birth...
And you're right, the umbilical cord was quite tough to cut through.
