Each One Tell One.

I have a major problem with telling people about major life events. I kept my very small wedding to myself and my family... only telling most people afterward. Now, I am finding it very difficult to tell people that I'm pregnant.

Not that I don't like talking to friends, reconnecting with them, or hearing about what's going on in their lives, but when it comes to big things... and right now big things growing under my sweater... I'm very tight lipped.

So. Here is my idea. Each person that reads this, tell one person. And have that person tell one person. And pretty soon everyone knows! Great! Because I am having trouble picking up the phone and telling people. Partially because I am still quite exhausted at the end of the day and partially because it feels so awkward to start a conversation, "So... I'm pregnant."

I am feeling good. The baby seems to be healthy. Charles and I are thrilled. There is no bad side. Well, literally there is, I am looking a little chunky in photos, especially directly forward-facing photos.

If I haven't told you this news yet, please don't be mad. Rest assured I love you as much as I have always loved you... my dear friends... I am just completely incapable of being a normal human being when it comes to public declarations. Please don't take it personally.

The baby is due in April. I am about halfway through.

Aunt Jan told me during our trip, so she is off the hook on telling someone. I guess I will have to carry the news on for you.

I love you and Charles and am so happy for you.

Aww, thanks so much Kim! Your pictures are so amazing. I can't wait to hear more about the trip.

We are just off a very nice weekend with Nathan, which is reminding me that you are still welcome to come visit us - anytime you start to feel overwhelmed with your life. Although, I don't think PA will help your tan much.

Thanks DP! Hope all is going well with you!

Hopefully I can make a brunch club sometime in the next few months - to catch up and see how you are doing.
