Oh! Darling

What does that look like to you? This picture reminds me of the inkblot images psychologists show during psych evaluations to determine weather or not you need more pills to help with all that crazy going on in your life. Anyway, digression aside; it is what you think it is. My fantastic husband was selfless enough to give me the gift of pregnancy and on HIS birthday--and we couldn't be more excited! Though I am not one to get terribly thrilled about the 9 months of pregnancy-- because it really has robbed me of several things including Rooster Booster's and Disneyland-- I am eccstatic for the after-part and couldn't be more determined to reach it as a cautious (staying away from soft cheese) and healthy (attempting to walk occasionally) mom. I'm already a third of the way through. I will be 14 weeks on Saturday. Elliott and some other friends had been pressuring me to make some sort of announcement on Facebook or on the blog but I knew I'd find more satisfaction out of waiting as long as I could to tell anyone (I would say something if they asked, or I'd tell close friend, etc.). I would've gone the whole 9 months without saying anything to the Ward or Facebook nation. It just would've been more entertaining that way. Anyway, Elliott and I are beyond happy and have already nabbed a few things for the him or her including a cute crib and dresser from Ikea. Now, to wait until we know the sex.
