i had known i was pregnant for about a week when emily started telling me that her boobs hurt and she thought she might possibly be pregnant. it was too good to be true. i seriously couldn't even get my hopes up at all. it just too exciting, too much, too many dreams come true....i couldn't even deal.
so about a week later, when they came by my house and casually, joyfully told me that it was true, they were going to have a baby just about a month after me....i about died. i started weeping. these two people, our family and best friends , traveling partners and soulmates, would be raising a family right along with us. emily and i would be pregnant together! we will have huge bellies at christmas! we will have cozy nursing newborns in the winter months, with fires in our woodstoves and coffeepots brewing and cats curled up at our feet. we will attend each other's births and act as doulas for each other, and all our babies will grow up together. i can't think of one earthly thing that could make me happier.
the next night they announced it to the whole family at joey's birthday dinner.
here's joey saying the words, "we're gonna have a baby."
my parents' reactions were priceless.
little do tootie and utah know how much fun is about to hit them. our family will have four babies under the age of two for awhile.....wow.... :)
and GUESS WHAT?!! i just found out, in the course of writing this post, that they are having a GIRL!
my heart bursts!!!
