Special Announcement!

I have a special announcement:  we are expecting our first child!  It came as a complete surprise but we are so thrilled.  I'm due in August and just this past week we found out we are having a baby girl.  Lewie has been busy building a nursery from scratch because we only have one bedroom in our house.  It is off the kitchen and our bedroom and will some day (when we move the bedrooms downstairs and redo the basement) become a large pantry.  I'm lucky enough to live in an area where midwifes are available and will be planning a natural birth.  I would like our baby to start life as simple as possible, no drugs and no intervention.  Besides being tired more and wanting to eat more, I feel great and actually in the last couple of weeks I've had a lot of energy.  Here is the ultrasound from our last visit.  She does a neat thing around 4:40 where it looks like she's chewing gum and then she kind of waves her hands.

Now that I know that it's a girl I can't wait to start on a few craft projects.  I'm sure I'll be sharing those as I work on them.  Anyway, just thought I'd share the good news!

Congrats Danielle! That's such exciting news. It's amazing how much your lives will change for the better when a little girl graces your home. You're in for quite a ride. Enjoy every moment of it and don't over do it this summer -- remember, you're busy working full time, even if you're resting on the couch. =)

We're due in mid-October, so we'll be right there behind you all the way.
