Lucy's big day

The following is Lucy's synopsis of her day working from home:

Facts about my day
· I just finished working – annoying! So I did not take a ½ day pto (I guess good!)

· I was so paranoid about the blue cheese I ate the other day that I called the restaurant and they said its from pasteurized milk – which is when it’s okay to eat. I won’t do it again just to be safe… but it makes me feel lots better!

· I watched tyra banks and days of our lives over lunch (I don’t really miss working from home that much)

The cat's out of the bag

So we were in California this past weekend for Lucy's cousin's wedding. We weren't going to tell anyone the news because we did not want to spoil the Bride and Groom's big weekend. I should also mention that we arrived late Thursday and slept in on Friday.

Well, Friday morning the whole family, minus us, gather to do some wedding chores. Lucy's cousin-in-law, Alison, wondered where we were and innocently asked Pat and Annie (Lucy's mom and sister respectively), "How's Lucy doing?"

Instead of answering simply, "fine" or "wonderful," they pause and look at each other hesitantly. Alison, already with a reputation for being quite intuitive, instantly exclaims, "She's pregnant!" And with that, the jig was up. I guess we are telling people now. :)

On Monday, we heard whoseits heartbeat. It was a strong whoosh whoosh whoosh whoosh at 160 beats per minute. One best things I've ever heard.

I guess this baby thing is for real now. I couldn't be happier.

First post

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your entire life was documented on the Internet? Well, we thought our first child would be a great test case. This blog will tell the story of his or her life - from 8 weeks after conception to the time when he or she finds out about this blog and demands that we stop posting.
