we're having a baby!
the kid is due december 7th and for the past few months i've been going from being really excited to completely terrified about what's to come.
we found out in early april and waited until 12 weeks to tell family, and friends a bit after that.
i think it drove charlie nuts to keep a secret for that long and although it was a relief to not have to fake drink any more, i'm so glad we waited that long to tell people.
the thing about babies is that, although everyone is excited for you, everyone also has an opinion about how you should be taking care of yourself, raising the baby, or what lifestyle choices you should be making.
personally i needed some time to adjust to the idea of having a baby and figure out some things for myself before being bombarded with questions.
we're not finding out the gender. something i always knew i wouldn't want to find out. this means that it'll be known as 'the baby' or 'the kid' for another 6 months.
charlie's hoping it's 10 days late so that they can share a birthday.
and we're both pretty excited to have another member of our family here at christmas.
