Just the FAQs, ma’am

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Really?

A:  Yes, really.  We’re having a baby in late February.

Q:  How do you feel?

A:  Initially we felt sort of ambiguous.  We’ve really enjoyed the 12 years of marriage with just the two of us, but we think we’re ready for a new challenge (ha!).  We discussed the pros and cons of children/no children for quite a while and finally decided to just see what would happen.  And, well, all of our parts appear to work.  It’s been a mental adjustment, but we’re starting to get a little excited.

Q:  No, I meant how do you feel physically?

A:  Deb has felt pretty good.  Just tired.  The afternoon nap is now mandatory.  Not too much queasiness if she does a good job of feeding herself on a regular schedule.  Nate feels hot because it’s 101 degrees in Portland and he rode his bike to work and back.
