Yesterday your dad and I called you "the kid". I feel badly about it; it sounds so cold and distant. But I promise we don't actually feel that way toward you.
It's just that when we talk about you and the future...well, we don't know what to call you. We don't know if you're a boy or a girl yet, so we can't whip out either of the wicked cool names we've got picked out already.
We're really very excited to see you soon. It'll be nice when I know what to call you.
