A couple people have asked how we came up with Dexter's name. So, here it is:
Dexter Gordon is my favorite jazz musician. He played the saxophone, and recorded mostly in the 40's, 50's, and 60's. I thought it was just a cool name, too. After a while, Dallas agreed with me. Check out the song in this post if you're interested.
Douglas is Dallas' Dad's name.
Not everyone was crazy about the name when we told them. Here is the conversation I had with my Mom when I called her right after Dexter was born:
Me: We had the baby
Mom: So, what did you name him?
Me: Dexter Douglas
Mom: (pause) .... really?
Me: Yeah. You don't like it huh?
Mom: It sounds like the phone book guy.
