A Quick Announcement

Okay, let's see if I can type this. The due date is October 6.

Here's a brief background for what led up to this:

Blissful Ignorance, March -- Linda feels tired and nauseous all the time, but she never stops to consider that she might be pregnant. She's a nurse, but the fact never crosses her mind. In fact, she goes to the doctor to check on the possibility of ulcers...

D-Day, April 6 -- We had talked about driving home to Illinois for the weekend, but in the end, we opt not to. That evening, Linda discovers the truth of her new reality. She estimates that she's probably 8 weeks along.

Denial, April 6-12 -- I choose not to believe that my life is about to change.

Acceptance, April 13 -- We go in for the first ultrasound. Is this an elaborate hoax? There's something on the screen. Maybe it's just a big tapeworm? Nope, that's a future baby alright, and 15 weeks along.

Change, April 15 -- Cancel the cruise plans for October, and see how non-refundable, non-refunable airline tickets really are.

More updates to come...

  3. Congrats to you and Linda! I'm so glad to see you joining the Parent World!

    I know six people with October birthdays. Obviously October is a good time to have a baby!

    Good luck and best wishes. I'm very happy for both of you! Does an Administrative Assistant have any special baby duties, like babysitting so you can work?! =)


  4. CONGRATULATIONS to the future mom and dad!
    October 6 will be here before you know it. Are you ready??

  5. Your life will never be the same again. And that's a good thing.
