It's definitely a Keeling.

So there we are at our 2nd checkup since Sandi became pregnant.

We're excited to see the new ultrasound because he/she may look more like a baby and less like a seahorse.

We weren't disappointed.

The first view of Junior showed him standing straight up in his lovely living quarters.

Unfortunately, things were a weeee bit cramped as Mom's bladder was perhaps a bit more full than the nurse requested.

After a brief respite to give the little one a little more space, we tried again and saw the baby crouching carefully in the bottom right corner of the picture.

At first, me as the Father was a little curious of my spawn's desire to stay so still.


He/She sprang out of the corner, legs and arms extended, then just as quickly crouched back down.

The little one was screwing with us. Definitely a Keeling.

Here's the new bundle of joy.

As for Mommy, she's still feeling exhausted and sometimes sick.

Fortunately, she has me to beat up on and Junior's big sister to take care of her.

This was our first glimpse at our little one.

Absolutely amazing.

And I think he/she has my eyes.

Telling Dad!

On the early morning of November 22, 2010, I decided to take a pregnancy test. I had spent the entire night at work hanging on stable surfaces because I was so dizzy. I figured I was coming down with the flu because it was four days before my expected lady friend was supposed to visit. I took the test and three minutes later....positive, positive positive! I was so shocked that at 7:30AM I ran all the way to the grocery store for FIVE more tests....and yes...I took them all.

Then it was time to tell the husband! On such short notice, I had a difficult time making it special. I went to the grocery store and bought a helium filled "good luck" balloon with a "congratulations" small arrangement of candy inside. (It was short notice!!) I then picked out a special card and wrote a sweet message. I dropped the arrangement off at the concierge desk of our apartment building and ran upstairs. Waking him was impossible. He refuses to get up and could not care less about this mysterious package at the front desk. After an hour of poking him he finally ran downstairs for the package. He opened it in front of me and was so happy. It was an amazing day!!

We're parents.

No one knows yet, except us.

But it's pretty amazing that these two have decided to procreate, eh?
