And Ours
I'm pregnant.
I'll give you a moment to absorb it.

I was going to have this long intro before telling but I decided to get right to the point.  I am ten weeks along and we are thrilled.  We just told Keegan and Isabelle today.  They are pretty excited.  Of course it is a very long time in a pre-schooler's mind.  I am due May 30.  It will be wonderful to have a warm weather baby.  It will be wonderful to have a child with Jeff.

PS The kids have been thinking up names.  Keegan just said he wished I hadn't named him Keegan but he would have preferred Fuzzbutt Fishbowl.  Yeah that was our second choice.
