Maybe this pregnancy was the worst kept secret ever, or maybe there are just lots of psychic people in this world. People have been asking us about a potential baby #2 lately and we've been giving weird and vague answers, sorry if you were one of those people, but we were just waiting to share the news.
Oddly we have had two occasions where people nearly found out a bit early. The day I took the pregnancy test in October I left the test out in the bathroom, because it made me happy to see, and I forgot about it when a friend came over for dinner. I was giving her a tour of the house and we went into the bathroom where I was regaling her with details of cabinet painting when I spotted the test just sitting there in the open. I stopped mid-sentence, stumbled over my words and quickly ushered us out of the bathroom. Amazingly she didn't notice it; I asked her later if she was just being polite, but she just hadn't seen it.
Then a few weeks ago we had friends over and we were standing in the kitchen talking. They asked if we were planning to have more kids and there was a weird, awkward pause as we tried to give a vague answer. We moved the conversation along, but later I realized we had an ultrasound on our fridge...still not sure if they saw that.
Anyway, we are so very happy to be able to share this news with the world now. Thank you so very much for your kind words and enthusiasm for our family! Your well-wishes really made our day, so nice to share something so very precious to us. We are very excited! I am thinking about tiny toes and baby snuggles. We can't wait to see Cordelia loving her little baby brother or sister. Since a few of you have been asking, we have started discussing the situation with Cordelia, but only in a very basic sense at this point. She has an eternity, in toddler time, to wait.
We also told Bumblebee, but she just gave us a blank stare.
Also, thank you for the overwhelmingly positive feedback about the new blog design! Eric was up until 2am just getting everything in order. He's kind of awesome that way.
This year is off to a great start! I have lots of fun stuff planned!
I hope you are having a great new year as well!!
