Raising a Blended Family


on November 25, 2014

Thanks for all of your congratulations! It definitely does not feel real.

The first order of business this morning was to confirm that Shorty is, in fact, pregnant. Annnnnnnd is she ever:

And also, this. There’s something about seeing the word spelled out:IMG_0174.JPG

Holy crap! We really did this. We made a baby… Or at least, we made a tiny ball of cells that will hopefully become our baby.

Little by little, slowly but surely, what this all means is coming back to us. It’s been two years since we had a newborn: things like cribs, swaddles, new baby smells and teeny tiny clothes have long been replaced by train tables, sneakers, and puzzles galore. A punkin seat is a thing of the past, and though we still get woken up at least once a night, it is easy to snuggle a toddler and go back to sleep; midnight diaper changes and feedings are also things of the past.

At least they were. In nine short months, if all goes well, they won’t be anymore. We’ve got a baby on the way. 🙂
