Well, my loves, my little secret is out! And getting less little by the day, I might add. Angus and I are expecting a wee one of our own this Halloween.
(Don’t let the photo confuse you. We find out today if this chubbub is a boy or a girl. I just happen to be holding a pink pouf.)
We’re throwing around words like happy and excited in completely non-ironic ways on a daily basis. Familiar things? They now seem magical. We’ve had the baby’s first pancake, first bite of pineapple, first plane ride, first Bruce concert, etc. The list goes on and on and this tidbit has yet to draw breath.
I’m going to drive everyone nuts once he or she is here, guaranteed.
The best part, though, is wondering what firsts the baby will love. Will this little person play sports? Be able to sing? Build things? Prefer strawberry to mint chip?
Will this babe even like to read?
I can’t begin to fathom the surprises in store for Angus and me.
Off to the doctor now. Can’t wait to share what I’m having. In the meantime, tell me, what aspects of baby planning would you like me to share?
Tomorrow, images from my “pop up” baby shower in Miami last weekend.

We can’t wait for Baby Fletcher!! And the rainbow ice cream request is the best story!! I think Graeter’s or Jeni’s Splendid are in order!! You pick the flavors, SaSa.

Joana I love strawberry best of all flavors and will be sure to convince baby girl it is the best flavor around! Congrats Congrats to my favorite tall/literary/loving couple who will be fantastic parents. I can’t wait to snuggle the little A&O baby and watch her grow. xoxox, Lydia

Ladies, thanks so much for all the love! We’re so excited and I can’t wait to share nursery details with you. I found a great blog I’ll be sharing next week.
And Joanna, if my cravings are any indication, this chubbubs favorite ice cream is rainbow sherbert. Random! I’m sure she’ll grown into mint chip lover like all the cool girls. Love to all!
