Here we go!

It’s been a while…

This time last year, we were in a different place.  The news we delivered was heavy, and difficult, but you helped us through:  sharing our pain, sharing your stories, but mostly, with overwhelming heaps of positive and encouraging wishes and thoughts for our family.

Today, almost a year later, we have some very different news to share.  It is my absolute pleasure to announce that my gorgeous wife, Cori, is pregnant!!!!!!!

I am sure you have questions, so here are the stats:

–       She is – 4 months pregnant

–       She is – on bed rest for the duration of the pregnancy

–       She is –scheduled for her cerclage today

–       We are – ecstatic!!!!!!!

We don’t know the sex yet, but we know that there is a healthy baby kicking around in there, and she (or he) is roughly the size of an avocado.

It’s been so hard not to shout this from the rooftops, but given our difficulties in the past, we wanted to wait.  Well, the wait is over.  We are pregnant!!!!!

We answered a few questions for our friend Trish over at you can find them here:

4 month belly!
