October 8th

Since it's been ages since I've graced my fine readers (all three of you!) with a proper post, I figured I'd treat you to something a little special today--an announcement!  

I'm pregnant!  

Yup, it's finally that time of my life for me to buckle down and learn what it means to be a parent.  Our due date is October 8th, 2009 and just for kicks, we're not going to find out the sex in advance NOR reveal our top baby names.  Nope.  No sir-ee.  Not gonna do it.  So don't ask me about it (or I'll probably cave).  

Rumor has it that in just a couple more weeks, I'll start feeling more human again (as opposed to the combination of sleeping and groaning that currently consumes my days), and some pregnancy books even promise me I'll get a boost in energy once I'm past the first trimester!  That would be lovely indeed.  So although I make no promises, I'll do my best to give this humble blog a bit more love and devotion in the months to come.  

That's all for now.  It's time to go feed the belly...

Thanks, guys! I'm pretty excited, too! My belly is sticking out a bit by this point, but I'm looking forward to when it juts out properly and doesn't just look like I need to lay off the mozzerella sticks.

Congrats! :) I have been curious for quite a while. Ever since you decided to do the house-wifey thing. :) Not that you couldn't just decide to do that, but you always seem to have your hand in something being as creative as you are. Anyway, I'm very excited for both of you. You're going to LOVE it, of course. I'm in my third trimester now and have been having a wonderful time preparing for the new kiddo. I'm sure you'll have just as much fun! I'll be excited to read all about it! :)

I'm so excited that baby Maika's sex is going to be a surprise! I've been calling it baby Maika, Ma(tt)-(Er)ika. I think it'll be so fun to wait and dream about what baby Maika will be like.

I can't wait to be an Aunt again!
