The news will be published on my work Weblog tomorrow, so I may as well share it here first: Rob and I are expecting a baby girl sometime in the next month!
We're thrilled, obviously. but since I'm an older first-time mom, I didn't want to post too soon and jinx anything. We have so many friends who would love to have babies now, but can't for whatever reason, and it is impossible not to temper our joy with an awareness of what they're going through.
I still feel weird writing about it! I know some people are so effusive with this kind of news, with belly photos and baby blogs and countdown clocks, but maybe because I'm from Minnesota, maybe because I'm just private, that's not me.
We're moving into a magical, scary world that we can't possibly see from here, and for now, just moving into it together is enough.
