Joining Option Name And Price

Here is a link to our website product page product.php.
We are trying to link the Price drop down to the Name drop down.

Right now the Price drop down sends the correct price to the shopping cart page, but I need some text on the shopping cart page that shows what size they picked.

So I added a second drop down (Name) that adds the text I want to the shopping cart page.
The big problem with this is that you have to select the same option from each drop down in order for it to work like I want it to.
How can I eliminate the second drop down.

Thanks again for your help!

set the size column to be updatable from a select list, the use javascript to change the value of the size form element, an example of this would look like:

<form name="SoftDipesCart1_4_ATC_1" method="POST" action="/product.php"> 
<img src="images/thumbs/fishpopup.jpg" align="left" /><br />
Velcro Dipes<br clear="all" />
<input type="hidden" name="SoftDipesCart1_4_ID_Add" value="1" >
<select name="SoftDipesCart1_4_Price_Add" onChange="document.SoftDipesCart1_4_ATC_1.SoftDipesCart1_4_Size_Add.value = document.SoftDipesCart1_4_ATC_1.SoftDipesCart1_4_Price_Add[SoftDipesCart1_4_Price_Add.selectedIndex].text"><br clear="all" />
<option value="3.00" selected="selected">New Born</option>
<option value="3.50">Small</option>
<option value="4.00">Medium</option>
<option value="4.50">Large</option>
<input type="hidden" name="SoftDipesCart1_4_Size_Add" value="New Born">

<br />
<input type="text" name="SoftDipesCart1_4_Quantity_Add" value="1" size="4" />
<input type="image" src="WA_eCart/Images/Pacifica/Btn5_EN_addtocart.gif" border="0" class="eC_ImageButton" value="Add to Cart" name="SoftDipesCart1_4_ATC">
