oh yeah

NO PINK.

thank you.

you may now resume your regularly scheduled programme.


And um, since she's signed surrender papers, and told US not to worry (bless her heart), I am allowing myself a trip to that that scary place.with.paraphanelia.for.babies....


I'll report later. And I'll share more news later, too. I have a HUGE amount of stuff to do at work to get ready to be gone for the tour, and after. The faboo news is that both bosses are thrilled, and we'll all work out a game plan together.

PHEW.

And oh yes, we did not meet the baby today, we'll meet her on placement. Just fyi.

Thanks again, internets - your support has TRULY helped us more than you can even imagine!

Shelli, OMG! Mazel Tov!!! I have been obsessively following your journey since FF (I was dejavu) and I am soooo thrilled for you. Have you picked a Hebrew name as well? I just had a baby girl too .. so in a strange way, we are Mommies together of new (and Jewish) little girls. I can't wait to hear more updates. Enjoy your last days as a couple before everything changes in wonderful ways, Mommy!

Jennifer said...

Ok so I thought all of those people who said your posts made them cry were a bit silly - but here I sit now crying for you! I am so so so so happy. This is wonderful news! The universe has a way of making things work just as they were meant to and I know this wonderful beautiful baby girl was meant for the two of you.

My heart is filled with happiness for the two of you!

Love, Jennifer

Don't worry, we're not pink fans either, so no pink from us! And in respect of your traditions, I promise I won't put anything in the post until you have her in your arms :)

Erin said...

WOOT!!! I know we spoke earlier, but..........you two ROCK-you are gonna be awesome mommies!!! I can't wait to meet her!

So.........how 'bout lavender-is that acceptable? What if there's pink in a print??

Gotta know these things, you know :)

Just let us know when to come and help- we're only a train ride away.

I was so anti-pink until we got our little girl. They just look so cute in pink (and ummmmmm now I wear it too!)

Jessica said...

YAY!!! I like pink but I like Lavendar too!

Calliope said...

phew- so glad your boss's are thrilled & working with you on this.
Can't wait to hear what you actually purchased!
It is just so amazing when good things happen to good people. This is like the fertility world series!
or something like that...

Can't help wondering if you and NArda slept at all last night or kept waking up to pinch each other. The missus and I keep talking about how thrilled we are for you... Yipeee!

This is so exciting! Congratulations.

When we first found out we were pg, I didn't want to know if it was a boy or a girl.

My sis promptly declared that we could have a girl or a drag queen and sent shocking pink & silver booties and pink "starter chopsticks" (with thumbrests).

Now, I am by no means an advocate of 'pink for girls,' but I'm just not sure the boy with the lesbian moms should be stuck in pink & silver booties before he can even express an opinion about it. So if you change your mind and want hot pink & silver booties...you know who to ask. :)

vixanne wigg said...

Wow!!!! This so incredibly great. I am so thrilled for both of you!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!! I cannot wait to hear all about her!

Linda said...

woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!
