[VIDE0] Ready? 1, 2, 3…

Screen shot 2014-11-02 at 8.09.35 PM

Getting to share big news with loved ones is one of my favourite things in life, but tricking them into thinking you are taking a photo and then dropping a life-changing bomb on them while recording is the best thing in life! Proof here, and our big announcement:

We can’t really describe our excitement about this news and the fact that our lives are changed forever, but we can say that the amount of joy and love it has already brought us is overwhelming.

And as we go on this crazy journey, I guarantee I’ll be sharing all my bizarre, gross, possibly interesting thoughts on the whole thing. I promise this blog won’t become purely about breast-milk and sleep deprivation, but if I am moved to write about those topics (which I can tell you I am – my boobs have gone from a size B bra to a size D already!), I will be posting those thoughts on Mondays.

Thank you all for your endless love and support for our Grown-Up Partying!

      Grant I know I fully regret wearing my authentic Hawaiian muumuu that night! One day when we show our kid the video he or she is going to be utterly embarrassed by me!

    This is so fantastic! Congratulations both on growing a mini-human in your belly AND on creating a super amazing video memory that you’ll be able to giggle and cry over for the rest of your mini-human’s life! So rad. You guys are going to be amazing parents.
