Oh baby......

.................with our next little big "project".

We are so stoked about our little peanut. 
Words can't fully describe our emotions but they're somewhere in the realm of euphoric.

My fellow design lovers, I will try my best to not turn this into a 24-hr baby blog.  To each their own (there are plenty of bloggers out there fulfilling that niche) but it's just not me--famous last words, huh?  Perhaps I'm speaking too soon, but I'll try to not infiltrate this blog with weekly photos of my naked expanding belly and/or tales of dirty diapers.  After all, just because we might find our little peanut cute, doesn't mean everyone else will.......bwahaha!

So, it will be business as usual around here.  That being said, I hope you'll indulge me if I do post something baby-related every once in a while!  I'd like to somehow strike a balance between design-related posts & life/baby posts.  Meanwhile, I hope we can convince our photographer friend Ben to do an awkward photo shoot like this one with us.  Awesome.

Our wonderful family & friends' joy have us marveling.  Not only have they bestowed their wholehearted support/wisdom upon us, they've also made us laugh during this journey into unknown territory (for us).
This e-card, from my friend Jen, made me spew my non-alcoholic beverage all over the 'puter screen (love it):

I can also hear the collective sigh of relief over how, now, I won't be able to make any wine-drinking jokes.
At least for a while. 

It's like we all win, really.

  25. Oh great, another 30-something old with a baby! Your blog...er...life... was going so well. Why do this to me? Ummmm I mean you... Babies, who needs'em??

    ReplyDelete
  26. @ Anonymous: BAHAHA!! You're funny, Anonymous! Oh, you're being serious. Feel free to stick around to see if a baby will mean the demise of this old blog (and my life, as you put it)!

    Who knows, we could become buddies...maybe then you'll have the courage to post under something other than "Anonymous".

    I'm here for you!! =]

    Hearts & rainbows,
    ~FC

    P.S. Mom, if you're "Anonymous", I'm offended. HA!! =]

And of course you should fill evey detail on your blog with baby stuff. Although...you might get my womb going too. Heheh! I'm all about another baby and I give into peer pressure. :) love you and can not wait to love baby FC!

    Cheers~

  33. Congrats FC! First off, you posted this on my birthday so it's like a little birthday present for me. Clearly you planned that, and I thank you ;)

    Secondly-- we are only five or six weeks apart in our due dates! I am due September 27th! We can draw strength from each other to not turn our blogs into babyland.

    Congrats again to you and Poppa FC!

  34. The first thing I thought....well, of course after being over the moon excited for you....was, 'oh man, girl will be missing her wine!'

    then I thought, look at that skinny b with her tiny arms and tiny thighs...she's going to be the cutest pregnant gal ever...and be back to a skinny b 2 weeks after baby beauty mark (bc he/she will be more lovely than a freckle) is born.

    i'm thrilled for you...will follow you devotedly no matter what you blog about! i blog about my kids, my home, what i wear, what i eat...on and on. We love you and your wit/snark...and you're still you, just with a little extra baggage (and less money, good thing you finished that basement! muahahahahaha)

    this concludes the longest comment ever

    really, could it have been any longer?

    I need someone to help me stop writing.

  35. Congratulations!! I love your blog and your sense of humor, and if you want to blog about your baby, so be it. I don't have any kids, but I love reading about pregnancies and nurseries, just for future knowledge you know? Anyway congratulations again! You look beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congratulations! I think the card you shared showed you're already going at this with a fantastic sense of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Go baby on us...it's OK. You'll keep it real and make us laugh along the way even if there are no wine posts!

    Joking aside, congrats to you and Mr. FC. So excited for you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congratulations! You look great and I can't wait to see what you do nursery-wise. I'm sure it will be all sorts of fabulous. Uh...no pressure? Also I'm sure Hiro is thrilled with his new "big brother" status.

  40. What good news! No wonder you haven't been posting a lot...you've been busy growing that placenta.

    Hope you're feeling well, and I mean this next part in the best possible way: your boobs totally gave it away in the first picture! I knew the good news even before I scrolled down. ; )

  43. THANK YOU EVERYONE!! You all are so wonderful, we feel so incredibly blessed. Heart glowing, cheeks blushing over here! =]

    @ Melissa: Aw thanks! My blouse was an inexpensive find from Nordstrom this season. LOVE it for its polka dots (& camouflaging abilities, ha!).

    @ Canny-Cole, Jenny, Kate, LizzieBeth, Alisa, & Elisa: CONGRATS to you ladies!! That's wonderful news! Wishing you all a happy, healthy pregnancy & delivery!!

    @ the rest of you: I can't tell you how honored I am to hear that you wouldn't mind if I posted baby stuff. Whatever I did to deserve your friendship/readership, THANK YOU for sharing in this adventure with us!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ jbhat: HAHAHA!! You gave me such a laugh, thank you! The running joke w/ Mr. FC & me right now is that my boobs are their own entity--they have a mind of their own these days, esp. the right one. I can't even tell you!! I almost need to name them....or get them their own social security number....TMI?

    Thanks jb, for noticing. HA!! =]

    ReplyDelete
  45. CONGRATS FC!!! And, it's YOUR blog, so you go ahead and post about whatever YOU wanna say. We'll still be here! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Haha, I had to come back to see if you lol'd about me saying that your boobs spilled the secret. Yay, you did!

    If you DO name them, that would be awesome. Maybe after some of the Playboy bunnies? : )

    ReplyDelete
  51. I will never take any sort of baby bump photo of you or anyone. (maybe not even my own wife if we ever go down that 18+ year financially burdened path)

    But that picture is hilarious! :)

    ReplyDelete

  54. Okay, so I totally read this like the day you posted it, but I can't comment through the firewall thingy at work and I always forget to comment when I get home. So... A very belated and incredibly boisterous CONGRATS! YAAAAYYY!!! I am so freakin happy and excited for you!

    ReplyDelete
  55. YAAAAAAY! Sorry it's been so long since I've checked in on you, but CONGRATS!!! Yay for you guys! I mean, I think most people know that I'm not a huge fan of kids unless they're super duper cute, and I'm 10000% sure yours will be. Hee hee hee.

    *claps happily*
