Word is out...

Ok, at least my boss knows so it's time to tell.

We're having another baby. We don't know what kind of baby yet, nor will we find out until the thing emerges. I like the mystery and the kind of magic to it. I also really like that no one can start programming socially acceptable gender roles before the kid has a chance to figure out how to breath oxygen.

Due date is February 5, placing this kid squarely in the thick of our family swarm of birthdays. Ah well, you can't fight city hall, so may as well stop trying.

My pants officially don't fit, but just enough to be uncomfortable. So, pleasant.

I have to fly to Chicago this weekend for a work thing. And I can't imagine anything more comfortable than Chicago, in August. But that should be funsies, if nothing else. Though, I will miss Warren. He's really a kick in the ass right now.

He's learning words at a ridiculous pace. If you ask him who he is, he'll reply "I Wowwie" which is how he pronounces his name. Freakin' killer cute. He's also a climber, which is less cute. Like, when you put the coffee cup on the kitchen counter, only to find him on the counter 2 minutes later, trying to drink mama's coffee. I guess they have to learn shit eventually, I'm just not ready for it yet. he's like a whole person suddenly. Out of control.

Ok, that's it for me. I'll be back soon. I really won't have much else to do in Chicago for 3 days. I'm staying out by the Airport, which is also where the conference is. I hope I get to at least run out and see some stuff. What a waste, to get all the way to Chicago and miss all the stuff.

G'night y'all.

CONGRATS!!! I knew it! You should take the bus to Milwaukee :) And/or you can just take the blue line to the city and see stuff. Hopefully I can still catch you over my Labor Day trip. How exciting!

Congratulations! I had a feeling that was the news you alluded to a couple of weeks ago. Yay!

And if you can hold out on having the behbeh until Feb 8th? I think that would be awesome. Why? Because I am awesome. 'Nuff said. :D

Welcome to the club! (Not the greatest club in the middle of August, but it's still pretty cool!)
