I am sure that bpohl realises that we have his best interests at heart. He misses us. He wishes to make a solid contribution to Foo.

So, how have you been doing, bpohl?

Cool. Congrats! Life doesn't get better than that.

Just ignore my initial response. I get in this funky sarcastic mood right after a stressful day at work.

Thanks, Siu. This is the same girl about whom I posted the thread when I thought we were pregnant the first time. This time was for real. We found out in July that we had been pregnant since June 4th (during the STanley Cup finals ) So, we're due on March 11th. We had originally planned on getting married next summer, but pushed it up to the year because of teh baby. We got married in August 23rd on the Canal here in Downtown Indy and had a really nice reception at the local wine bar. It was a great time. I'm very excited, but also nervous. It's all very overwhelming, but I know it's going to be worth it

That's a major life-changing event bpohl. Those "Life comes at you fast" commercials aren't much of an exaggeration.

btw - Congrats... and Congrats.

The Stanley Cup finals must have been, uh, "exciting" for you.

Yeah, that's no joke at all. If you had told me in August, 2007, that I'd be married with a kid on the way in one year, I would have laughed you out of the room.

Husbandry and Fatherhood are the two hardest jobs I have ever undertaken. To make it work takes an incredible effort that is oh so rewarding. Congrats and Best of Luck.

Wow, you both got pregnant at the same time, and have the same due date? That's an amazing coincidence! Were you both born in the same hospital on the same day, by any chance?

Oh, it's the girl who's pregnant? Pfft.

BTW, if someone from the Weekly World News shows up on your doorstep, just tell them "nevermind."
