I told ya’ll that I was working on a little project.
No, it’s not my halloween costume. (although that might be an indication of what I will look like in five months!)
It’s a human project. I’m making one. from scratch.
I kid not…err…I do.
Either way, there is a homosapian growing inside of me for the last 18 weeks and the secret can be contained no more. That’s right….I am totally pregnant!!!
Well, it’s more like 45% pregnant.
And this kinda news can not be contained a single moment longer! Afterall, it’s not everyday that I get knocked up. sperminated. wild with child. I am a bambino machino…and yes, I have been waiting my whole life to say that 🙂 I have just been ACHING to tell you all…it’s ridiculously hard to suck in my stomach for all those photos…and I felt like I was busting at the seams with a blend of nervousness, the suppression of nausea and the overwhelming feeling of immense blessing. So it’s wonderful to finally spill the beans.
Both Jeremy & I are uber-excited. Like we have been breaking out dance moves everyday…even retro ones like the butterfly and the hand jive and the mashed potato. mmm. mashed potatoes 🙂 with bacon 🙂 In all honesty, I was a little more scared than excited. Mostly because I was 99% sure that the fetus would find out who was carrying it and spontaneously abort itself. That hasn’t happened…yet. It might regret it’s decision around April.
So other than the official Baby Bower announcement…we have big plans for converting our office into a nursery, we are pumped about our transition into the land of parenthood and hearing all your good advice, and we can’t wait to share with you all the ways that our home will evolve into being a more child-friendly environment as well as tackling DIY projects in a way that is safe for us mommy’s-to-be. Plus, we fully plan on punking the little tike as soon as it is old enough to smile…so stay tuned for that 🙂
And in case I haven’t said it lately – A million bucketloads of thanks for all your encouragement and support and love over the past year and a half. I am thrilled (and completely blessed) that I have such great blogland friends to share with us in this next big step! So hugs and kisses to each and every one of you 🙂
