Knocked into 07/07

ok cool fools that keep reading my blog even though i rarely post anything of substance anymore, there's a shift about to happen.

First of all, it's a good year, 2007. I've been looking forward to this year for a long time because sometime when I was little I figured out that during this year I will turn 33 (jesus year) on 07/07/07. All of those sevens are supposed to be sort of magic. Who knows what will happen but I have a good feeling. Who knows. I think I will have a party though because it's on a Saturday too and what are the chances of that?!

Second of all, i'm pregnant.

Do you like how i slipped that in there? Yes I really am. FINALLY. And it's very good and the Dupster and I are pretty happy.

Details: 12 weeks along. Due July 26th. Don't know the sex yet, will find out and let you know when we do. Probably going to keep the name a secret until it's born.

Anything else? We had our second pre-natal visit on Wednesday and we got to see a Sonogram of the little bugger and you could really see it in there moving around and kicking it's little legs and everything. There was narry a dry eye. We found out over thanksgiving but we wanted to keep it to ourselves until we knew it was going to "stick". The doc says, everything is looking really good and healthy so we're finally telling.

Telling YOU! The UNIVERSE!

Thank you for sticking by me during this past year of introversion and introspection. Turns out, getting knocked up isn't as easy as your mother told you it would be in high school.

I promise to write more later but I really am slammed at work. I will write more. Thank you.

Big congrats to both of you. All three of, really. Good job existing, fetus.

Please listen to the Lou Reed song "Beginning of a Great Adventure" when you can. Some of the lyrics are a little, you know, Lou Reedish but the overall message: good one.

Nothing in your life will ever be the same but it will be better.

Does it seem real yet? When I was pregnant with Piper, I didn't totally believe it until she was born... and even then, I kept pinching myself...

Holy hell- I am already excited to hear what your bambino will be named! :)
