We're Pregnant!!



While it's been a pretty quiet summer here with not much in the way of blog updates, there is one big event we've been dying to share. Yes, we're pregnant!!...or more accurately, Lisa is. It's a little too early to tell whether it will be a boy or a girl but for us it doesn't really matter. We had been planning a child for some time now but with two moves in less than a year and the new home and all the adjustments (and a few stresses) that that brought along, it got put on the back burner for a little bit. Finally though, it seems all my little soldiers were lined up and swimming in the right direction.

We are both very excited and looking forward to the big day in April. This will be my first biological child, so to say that I'm uber-excited would be a bit of an understatement. I've delved into a good book on pregnancy to help prep me for all that is to come. I am now familiar with the term "Braxton Hicks" and know that under no circumstances am I to make any comments about hips, back sides or boobs over the coming months. The book also suggests avoiding the phrase, "Now she's eating for two." Humour aside, though I plan to be as informed and as involved with the pregnancy as I can be. We are both looking forward to the new addition to our growing family. Because of the daycare, we have a total of 4 play pens in the master bedroom. I get a chuckle out of it every time I see them there lined up against the wall. Hopefully, we will only need the one but we're nothing if not prepared.

Will it be a girl? Will it be a boy? Too early to tell yet though we have names picked out already. We will post further updates of course as things progress.

Congratulations Lisa and Darcy.

Congrats to all of you! You're going to have quite the busy household but with the daycare I guess you're used to having lots of kids around. I'm told once you get over 2 of them, it's all the same anyway.

Thanks Offroad! At the moment I'm not aware of any other Fort Mac bloggers although we look from time to time and would be very interested in finding a few.
