For anyone who'd like to follow along...

Here's our baby's website.

It's weird. I have an 18 year old daughter who I adore and have thoroughly enjoyed raising... and until a year or so ago, had decided I was finished with children. Honestly, it only took finding someone like Emily to change my mind. Not that she lobbied to change it, but the idea of being a parent with such an amazing person just blew my mind. Not to be sappy, but we connect on a level I've never reached with another person before.

So we decided it was time.

Now, I am in preparation mode. I'm getting my office remodeled and in order. We're getting the garage and baby's room cleaned out, things put into storage and our lives generally organized. It's really fun! I needed this renewed energy and direction right now. It has motivated me both personally and professionally.

Life is pretty sweet!

Absolutely!!!

This is going to be great! And you know that I feel the same way about you, love... I never met anyone who I thought I'd really like to be a parent with - until I met you!

(Sorry, that was somewhat sickening... But, I'm blaming the hormones... As I will be blaming everything for the next 9 months!)

Wow. I really need to come here more often. I thought Vi was just a BDD fling. You sly fox, you.

Good luck with the baby and your baby's momma.
