This post will be much shorter than the last few, I promise.

Some of you already know this. Some of you don't. The girl and I have been trying for a few months toward getting her knocked up :-)

My wonderful wife, who I love dearly, is now about seven weeks pregnant as such things are reckoned (so maybe five weeks in actuality?).

So, if all goes well, I'm looking at being a father within less than eight months. Our "best guess" nominal due date is May 23rd, 2008, which is guessed without any medical authority whatsoever.

I'll keep people posted, at least for major stuff.

Have I mentioned that I'm really looking forward to this? 'Cause I really am.

Mazel Tov.

Incidentally, I was really touched the way you both took me aside and gave me some kindness when I needed it. I will not forget that.

Yay! If you're two days early from your due date (and first births are more likely to be a few days late I think?) Rebecca and little tadpole can celebrate their birthdays together. Well, hell, they could do that anyway, but this way, see, @whisper(they'd be on the same day). Anyway. There's a Blossom Birth Family Picnic this Saturday, if you want to come and see lots of hatched eggs. Lots of other birth resources at Blossom Birth, it is where Jesse and I went to a natural child birth class, although I dunno how much of that would be at the picnic. http://blossombirth.org/events_special.html
