Frequently Asked Questions:
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.
