Beginning with our decision to have another baby, this is a journal to record each memorable moment of our journey through conception, pregnancy, birth and whatever comes next.
Lilypie Pregnancy tickers

Normally I wait until the end of the day to post because by then I've got enough fodder to come up with something half-way entertaining. Today, however, I just have to post now (9:15am) because I have super cool, rad, awesome, gnarly good news. WE'RE PREGNANT! Yes, folks, I peed all over my hand to get this little trophy:
Yes, I realize you probably can't see it. Try looking at it from an angle, it's there. I'm going to take another one in a couple of days just to get a darker line and then I'll post it here for those of you non-believers who might be doubting the existence of this faint line. Have a little faith!
As we were jumping up and down in excitement over our faint little line, I happened to glance over toward the window and noticed a very subtle orange-gray creeping up over the eastern horizon. I continued to watch as the display of color and brightness gradually became more colorful and much brighter. It was so beautiful, magical even. It felt like nature was congratulating us on the discovery of our little Squishy who is now a tiny ball of hundreds of rapidly dividing cells.
I can't believe how much I love this little baby already - I loved it before it was even conceived! I'm anxiously awaiting late September/early October when I'll be cuddling my sweet little cupcake in my arms, inhaling the intoxicating smell of it's tiny head. Oh, but there's so much to do before Squishy comes: move across the country; move Hammy into Damian's room; move Daisy to the toddler bed; buy another dresser; sew and crochet blankets, sweaters, hats, booties; and replace and reupholster the baby gear with our theme.Of course all of this will have to wait until I finish making the blanket for Josh's sister's upcoming little sweetheart who's due to arrive in May. Well, I'd better get started! ...Zippety doo dah, zippety day, my, oh my, what a wonderful day!
