Pretty surreal

Hi friends. I just wanted to pop in today to tell you some news. It's big news, and I'm not sure how I feel about sharing it in such a public space, but I can't wait any longer. Here goes!

At the end of September, Alex and I are expecting a baby.

I know! We absolutely positively can't wait. He or she is about the size of an heirloom tomato, and is swooshing and kicking all around. It's amazing and exciting, and pretty surreal.

Food-wise, there was a rather dire period back in February and March when I could only stomach popcorn, watermelon, and Hint of Lime Tostitos chips, but that seems to have passed. (Thank goodness!) Things are pretty much back to normal around here, beyond a few extra eggs and steaks and lobster salad rolls. When the farmers market opens in Orleans May 14th (!), we'll see you there.

So thanks, as always, for everything. It feels very good to share.

Congratulations! I remember how it was. We have the same timeline, my daughter was born at the end of September. But it was 7 years ago. First trimester was something :) But by now you should be absolutely positively fine. And the best thing - you could swim everyday in your last trimester. It feels so good on your back and the whole body!

Congrats! Echoing anonymous' comment, both my children were born around Labor Day and I can confirm that floating your way through the "big" part of pregnancy is wonderful. Winter is a natural time to be nested indoors and swaddling and cuddling a new babe by the woodstove is blissful. Wishing you all the best bringing a new locavore into the world!
