we have a little baby block on the way!
yep, i'm 14 weeks along today -- just starting the 2nd trimester. we waited to tell everyone until we were sure everything was alright, and just started to inform people this week with a fun little announcement we sent around in the mail (cover below). we had never seen this done before, but we wanted to find a way to let friends know (besides a mass email) if we couldn't tell them in person. i'm still sending some out, but most friends have been surprised already by the note. =)

to answer some questions that i know are coming my way:
1. the baby is due on new year's day, 2009. yes, it's an awesome due date. =D but we all know that this actually means that baby block will send me into labor and delivery on my 30th birthday, which is on january 6th. LOL
2. no, we're not finding out the sex. when have you known me to be a pink kinda girl anyway?
3. the office, which we have been working on slowly, now has to be shared with the baby. so we have to do some revamping around here.
4. yes, i will continue working after the baby is born. i'm just taking off the requisite 2-3 months in the beginning, which is fine because it's a slow time of year. current clients who are reading this -- don't worry, there isn't a person on my roster that i won't be able to take care of. all of you are good to go! and i will post my schedule for work on my site and on my blog, so everyone can know when i'll be working until.
it's our first and were both extremely excited. my migraines have been made way worse by the pregnancy, if that was at all possible, so i'm not lying to you guys when i say that i've been sick. but since i'm used to the daily migraines anyway, i'm working through them.
so, just thought i'd share the news with everyone before the holiday weekend. hope you guys are as happy as we are. =)
