Baby, Baby.

Photo taken by the very talented Anna. You can view more of my first pregnancy photo shoot here.

Tomorrow we find out what you are. 

I've had two dreams of a dark-haired little girl, all snuggly and chubby-cheeked, and your Oma is convinced that's just what you are.

But I also dream of a tow-headed little boy, just like your father, and how wonderful it would be to watch you two bond over the years.

All I know is that whatever you are, you're already a good one and I can't wait to meet you.

To the living room, which served as the perfect place to unwrap wedding gifts, still dressed in our wedding best.

To the kitchen, which has served many a pancake breakfast.

To the three minute walk to the park and the amazing view of the art museum from our front door.

To the chipping paint and the broken 2 on the outside of the house.

And to you, yard full of weeds and mint garden that's determined to take over anything within a five foot raidus.

Cheers, we will miss you. 

Thanks for being such a great house.

Photos taken on the morning we left for our honeymoon.

First Came Love

Then came marriage.

Then came..

A big, BIG surprise.

I can be honest here, can't I? Of course I can, it's my blog. When I found out I was pregnant, the first words out of my mouth were profanities, followed by screaming, which made Michael burst in the bathroom door.
It was like a scene from a bad romantic comedy where we both stared at the stick, then stared at each other, then back at the stick without saying a word.

And then he said, "Okay. We're really doing this."
And then he hugged me.
And it was okay.

And now we're over the moon with excitement. We're due September 27 and we heard baby's heartbeat for the first time last week.
