Two’s company… Three’s a family!

posted in: Notes | 37

Since I’m my own boss, and I’ve got everything under control… there’s no need to keep the excitement under wraps (well, for any longer!). Steven and I are expecting our first little Finn :)… sometime in March of 2011. It’s all very exciting, we’ve been getting lots of advice and tips from everyone who is already a parent… of course!

Here’s our 10 week ultrasound, which I just got digitized. Very cool to see baby’s tiny heart beating at about 150 beats per minute!

Fortunately, the kittens have been great with babies and kids, so with a little training and prep, we shouldn’t have too much trouble getting Ginger and Cinnamon used to being around things that smell like baby.

Oh, and one last thing: Betsy’s Photography will remain open and operating as usual. We will schedule a brief holiday around the baby’s due date, however we will be operating at full capacity as long as possible.

    Congratulations! Great news! I guess someone else will be cleaning the litter pan for a while then eh? Tell him I had the same problem when our first was coming. We had three cats and 6 kittens at the time.

    yay… comment love. πŸ™‚ β™₯

    Thanks πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ — we’ve been quite excited!

    @Chris — yep, been feeling great! No morning sickness or anything (knock on wood that this trend continues). Just wanting to sneak in a few naps during the day due to being tired. But that seems to have gotten better this week too!

    @Kathy — looking forward to it as well!! I see you’ll be coming to DPPA in the future to do a program of your own… looking forward to that too πŸ™‚

    @Larry — hehe exactly. Fortunately, we have one of those kitty litter pans with the built-in sifter tray. Looks a lot easier than scooping but I haven’t tested it personally yet. I suppose we could eliminate the problem by teaching the kittens to use the toilet… but we don’t want to revisit any scenes from Meet the Parents ;).

    @Zack, figured you of all people would enjoy the FB album title (v2.0 beta …lol).

    Congratulations…! My wife brought a photo home like that for me one day. Only it said baby “A” and baby “B” on it. Took a little while for that to sink in completely.

    @Kellie – due in March πŸ™‚

    @Joe – yeah, twins run in my side of the family, so Steven was a little relieved to see only one on the ultrasound this time around. The OB told him “better luck next time” heheh…
