a new chapter

Well, my dear friends, I have some good news and some better news. The good news is that Billy's back in town, had a great time at his Java conference, and we've had my family over all weekend, playing and having really good food (Kopi, Original House of Pancakes, Biaggi's (my family likes to eat out). The better news is that I found out on Monday that I'm pregnant! Wow! We're all really excited about this new chapter and new addition to our family. Georgia looks at me conspiratorily a few times a day, and says ' you have a baby in your tummy' and we talk about how lucky I am to have three children all of a sudden. I'm six weeks along (so that means the baby's heart has started beating already!) and due at the end of February. The nausea has set in already, but doesn't seem too severe (yet, though hopefully never!). So that's the life-altering news and I feel like the timing is just perfect in it's own way to be having another baby, another person I'm priveledged to be associated with and close too and to be a part of forming. I, of course, think it's a girl, and I love her so much already. It's amazing how there's always room for more love.

All these babies...why does thinking of such beautiful little creatures always make cry? Congratulations, Bahiyyih!

Oh my goodness, Bahiyyih! I had the craziest dream about your new baby last night. The baby was a girl but by the time I actually met her she was a year old already. She looked a lot like you but with dark curly hair. And Georgia and Maya looked very similar as now but notibly taller. I remember saying to Georgia "oh my goodness - you are five and a half!" to which she did a little Georgia hop and smiled and said, "YESSSS!" Amia was in the dream too but what was weird was that she was younger than baby Baker. There were other things going on - I'll have to describe them in person :)

Congratulations to both of you! That is wonderful and exciting news. Wish we lived closer to be able to see all of you more often.
