Ok, so this isn't a long story, but I thought I would let y'all know how my adorable little son became THE YETI:
When we found out I was pregnant, we insisted that we would not find out what we were having until it hatched. But, alas, my 20 week ultrasound rolled around, and we just couldn't wait.
So, doing what any normal person would do, I posed the question on Facebook what everyone thought we were having. Of course, the usual boy girl votes came rolling in. However, one individual/co-worker thought that it might be a Yeti due to the fact that Red is a larger than normal human being as are all the males on my Dad's side of the family. Thinking this was hysterical, the nickname stuck.
Oddly enough (he was born October 25th) the night that we brought him home (October 27th) it was snowing out. Very unseasonal for Vermont. That weekend, we got the now famous Halloween blizzard that dropped 2 feet of snow across New England. Obviously, God knew a Yeti had been born into the world, and had to provide him with his natural Himalayan habitat.
