We are very excited to announce that we are having a baby this summer!

Telling people that we are having a baby is a strange experience. I am really excited, and want to share with people, but there isn't really an easy way to bring it up in conversation. Or on a blog post. So this news is delayed for the blog because I didn't really know what to say. Sorry!

So- to answer some questions you all may have- we do not know if we are having a boy or a girl yet. We are planning to find out (and are excited to find out!) and we'll post it here when we know.

I have been fairly sick- not as sick as some people I know, and more sick than others. Not so sick that I needed medication. But I think...maybe...I'm done with being sick? I sure hope so. We'll see.

I haven't finished my degree yet, but I'm going to. I finish classes this semester, I have an internship spring term (which I am also very excited for), and then after the baby comes I will write my thesis. The timing actually works out very well, because my thesis shouldn't be too hard to do with a baby, but classes and an internship would be harder to do.

If you have any advice on anything baby-related, we'd love to hear it. Going into baby-land is overwhelming- there are so many things to do, and get, and SO much information available, and it's nice to hear opinions from people we know and trust. So send us your checklists, or the names of books you think we should read, or your favorite products, or anything else that you have found helpful. We'd love to see it!

Also- so you're aware, I'm not going to post my due date, or our baby's birth date, or that sort of personal information on the internet. I'm happy to tell you, I just don't want just anybody to be able to look it up. :) So if you want to know, send me an email or something.
