Waiting, Making, Loving

Waiting : until now to share some very fun news.
Making : our house into a home for a family - slowly, slowly.
Loving : that Peter and I will get to become parents together in a few short months!
Hoping : that we'll be half-way decent at our new gig.
Marveling : at the fact that I'll get to meet this new little person in early May.
Liking : the tremendous excitement and joy our family and friends have shown us.
Wearing : long sweaters, scarves, and scary belly-bands.
Needing : some bigger clothes :)
Drinking : tea, juice, hot chocolate, repeat.
Following : lots of the advice my generous girlfriends have given me (and if you have some to share, please do!).
Thinking : about how much I want to enjoy this short, special phase of life.
Feeling : excited, nervous, joyful, anxious, lucky, and so, so happy.

This idea came from Meet Me at Mikes!


  1. Oh, this post made me tear up. I'm so, so, so excited for you two and will repeat what I said before: you and Peter are already equipped to be the most loving, smart, thoughtful, interesting parents for this child. I, for one, can't wait to meet this little one!!

    P.S. I wish I had some advice to give...perhaps you'll have tips to share with me when my time comes!

  2. I teared up too! Read this while feeding Anne her breakfast (oatmeal with banana, her favorite!). Hope you are feeling good! xoxo

  3. Congratulations! So excited for you!

  4. Yay!!!! So so happy for you, Julie. xoxox
