Well, now people know we’re going to have a baby.
We had our BFF Ross and his lovely wife and adorable six-month old son over for dinner last night, and after much sideways eye contact conversation between E and I we broke the news over desserts.
It was… weird. It’s the first time we’ve done any verbalizing about a baby to anyone other than each other or a medical professional. And while it was a relief to suddenly spill guts over all of my crazy concerns to people who just recently went through it all for the first time, I also experienced my first little piece of parental sadness. The idea of the baby doesn’t just belong to E and I anymore.
Next up on the to-tell list: siblings!
