You all astound me...and I mean that in a very positive way. More than 130 comments on that last post? Amazing! Thank you all for the kind words and good wishes. I need to think of a new way to say this because its getting so damn repetitive...but you rock mightily.

I've gotta say, it really felt good to share that bit of news. We've been keeping it top-secret since late November and its been killing me!! I'll be returning to normal post-announcement blogging goodness soon, with light to intermittent talk of babies and pre-fatherhood freakouts. So just hold tight.

It will be interesting to see how your life changes with a baby on the way. So who is going to organize the online shower?

Congratulations you two! :)

See I told you, 100s.... Late November - meaning she's three months, and past the worst, most dangerous part?

Yeah if that is so!

Since last November??? Wow, you guys are good!

That is really smart-- make sure everything is okay and all.

So, is Beth due beginning of August then? I had a late August baby and didn't find out I was preggers til after Christmas.

Make sure you print that post and all the comments. We printed all our congratulatory e-mails and will someday (HA! Like I'm that organized) put them in a scrapbook along with her hospital stuff.

Well, it's only because you rock and all that.

Congrats (I didn't post in your first post since I already posted at Beth's place. She's the cutest of you two, so that's why I went there first. Neener neener)

A nice way to say we rock is to actually give us rocks. Our choice: diamonds or cocaine.

I think your studliness in fathering a baby contributed to the increased swag sales ;)
