174 days and counting...

We told our families on Christmas, and we've started getting around to telling friends and acquaintances: Heather I are expecting. The new addition to our family should come sometime around August 1st. It's too early to tell what the gender of the baby is, but we're excited either way. It is quite sobering to think of our pending responsibilities in caring for someone who can't yet do anything on his own.

In the interim, we've decided to call the baby "Peanut." It isn't a name that we could use permanently, so we aren't afraid of it sticking, but at the same time, it's fun to refer to our new child by some kind of personal name, instead of just "it. The next few months are going to be pretty long, as we wait with anticipation for Peanut to come.
