I've waited so long for this. I don't really remember a time when I didn't want a baby. I remember in first or second grade when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said, without hesitation, "a mommy". That said, I feel like any other time than right now would have been too soon or would be too late.
We've gotten so much love in response to the news and it's fed our own enthusiasm. Thank you family and friends! Thank you.
