Our little change

Alright now, you can stop guessing. We are pregnant. Well, I am. Mike is just along for the ride. We are nervous and overjoyed and excited all at once. We have talked about this many times before but now that it is really happening, we stand in awe.

I have been really tired and sleeping alot since this started. But magically as I started this new week, I have new found energy. That is a good thing since there is a lot to be planned for, talked about and done.  The most exciting project for me would be the nursery but you already knew that! I’m looking forward to some sewing projects and crafty fun as well.

We saw our little one 3 weeks ago and it was most wiggly. That is not a surprise considering that it has Mike’s genes.

I just wanted to share this news with you, my dear friends. Believe me, it was hard to sit on my hands and not write this post. I have one more close friend to tell and I hope she doesn’t read this before we talk soon.

I already feel the change in me, thinking about all things baby but I promise that I will still share things I enjoy, like good food, crafty ideas, decorating tips, movies, books, music and even more. I won’t deny that the little one will come up quite a bit because I know I won’t be able to help it.

Won’t you join me on this journey as we welcome this little change into our lives?

    Thanks for sharing your excitement and Congratulations to you and Mike as you embark on a most interesting journey of on-edge anticipation, sometimes altered tastebuds, tender wiggly toes, and soiled diapers.:-) Have lots of fun along the way!

  3. OMG stef! This is so exciting! I have been reading your blog since…. I cant remember since when and this is brilliant news! Congratulations and thank you for sharing!

  4. Congrats again! So happy for you and Mike. Totally agree with you about the wiggly thing cos I’m pretty sure all that fidgeting my baby did was because he has Wen’s genes. =D

    p.s: The Maltesers are on their way. First stop, San Francisco. Then via local mail. =D

In the 7+ years I’ve been reading your blog and following your journey, I feel like we do know each other!! I can’t wait to continue on with your journey, meet you little bundle and I just wish you the best of health and congratulations to both you and Mike!! JOY…!!!!
