After nearly three years of "me and you, just us two," my husband and I finally decided that it was time to make an addition to the family. And the minute we decided, BAM!
Red marks on Hamil's face are brought to you by jiu-jitsu.
It's my 15th week--we've known since April, but we just decided not to tell anyone aside from immediate family and very few close friends until the end of first trimester. This is partly because I'm half-Indian (haha) and partly because we just really wanted to be safe. A lot can happen in the first trimester. Once we decided to tell people, there were no big announcements on Facebook, and just tweets in passing.
My mom's hilarious reaction after we showed her the pregnancy test: "Ano 'to, USB?"
We kind of timed it so that ze bebe will be a Capricorn like us. I know that sounds silly, but being a parent is hard enough, so we figured the kid might as well have our temperaments. Har. Whatever helps, right? We also made it to the Year of the Dragon cutoff. Ah, a Targaryen! Based on a Game of Thrones quiz I took before, mommy belongs to House Targaryen--a dragon too.
"Mommy." That'll take some getting used to.
