“So you named him Hank?” Cheri laughed. “Like that’s not too much too?”

“And you’re the one who ruled out Wyatt?” Cheri asked. “What else did you say no to? John Wayne? Billy the Kid? Marshall Dillon?”

“Ooh, I like that,” Mariah said, patting her tummy. “Maybe we’ll name this one Marshall.”

Joe sighed. They already knew it was going to be a girl.
