When I first read this I thought you were wishing them happiness and love for two more years... which I thought was a bit of a less-than-optimistic viewpoint.

Okay, fine. That was the first draft. I'm a writer so I'll revise it.

Here's to the two of you. May your love for each other bind you together in happiness always!





Alright editor, is that better? Now when do I get my royalty check? :)

Okay paramedics had to help me off the floor after reading that. :shock: It's great news . . . I just wasn't expecting to hear it from you so soon. You need to stop in here more often. We miss you. If you have a little girl I think you're in trouble. She'll have you wrapped around her little finger, she'll get anything she wants. Brave New World indeed.

Thanks guys.

My world has already changed drastically. I've already been learning the ropes as a dad with her other two, but now there's one on the way that I will bring into the world from the beginning. :shock:

I'm hoping to become a more regular here, but work is beating me down with too many hours and though I love you guys, I wanna spend most of the rest of it with my family for now ;)

Well, I finally get to be an HGGM! Congrats, my dear. I somehow missed this thread until Pengie brought it up. Good word, HGS! :wink:

Now I know why I missed it. Even when a new post goes on it, it doesn't show up on the main board. Why?

So the other day was the first ultrasound, we have to go again for the first trimester "big" ultrasound (not the big "big" one, but the one that tests for down syndrome, etc.). Everything's going great, except we all have the flu right now. Yuck.

And I even had my flu shot already!
