Baby news

Finally! This post has two parts. One that's very exciting right now and one that will be exciting in February. So if you know what's good for you, you'll read the whole thing.

First, Laura, my dearest most loveliest most thoughtful most midwife-in-training-knowledgeable-about-birth friend had her little one on Friday.

In the midst of wedding chaos, I didn't see the text until late that night and then missed her call on Saturday while we were taking photos. BUT STILL. He's beautiful, he's a boy!

Judah Alexander



Isn't that the cutest thing ever??

And luckily I had already determined that the bunting flag card was for her, so it's all ready to go. But now includes his name:



(cutting out words in cursive is harder than you think).

She's a little preoccupied with figuring out the breastfeeding/infant care thing, so I'm pretty sure she won't see the card here before it arrives in her mailbox. But if you're out there Mama Laura, here's your card!

Next on the baby news front. There doesn't ever seem to be the perfect time to post this particular piece of information, but now that we're on the subject of babies...

I'm with child.

Haaaa. I love that saying. But yep, I'm pregnant too. I'm just about 19 weeks (see, I told you I've been mysteriously holding out!) and we're so super excited. And nervous, a little. And we have to come up with a new #1 boy name because ours was too close to Judah. Friends can't have sons with nearly the same name. Of course we might have a girl. We'll find out in February.

So there you are. Now perhaps my aversion to cooking all summer long, my hiatus from shopping (with the exception of maxi dresses), my uncharacteristic pass on those AWESOME blue shoes, my flighty posting, and other unexplained things are more understandable.

This also calls for a new blog category! But what should it be? Temporary one in place and I shall ponder further.

Some of the most important things that I know about you are that you're an incredibly loving, kind, giving, selfless person - all traits of a wonderful mother. Congratulations!

Meg said...

Congratulations, lady. That's going to be one stylish kid. xoxoxo

lovelymorning said...

You guys are so nice! Thanks so much for all of your nice comments and encouragement. It's a little surreal, growing a human.

I'm so glad that you who I don't know piped up.

Karole-anne - weeeeird. we'll be doing this at the same time!

Jora - i like it.

Style-for-style - yep. Jude. We like it too, but there are thousands of names so I'm sure we'll come up with a few more. Boy names are so much harder than girl names.

Meg - you give us too much credit.

All of you, so happy you're all here!

Kyla said...

I've never left a comment before, but this deserves a congratulations! And this is so funny, because my 10 month old's name is Jude Alexander!

From yesterday's post:
"The october issue is not normally a favorite of mine, I have to say. Perhaps I'll appreciate it more when I have kidlets to dress up ..."

Haha, you danced around that one nicely! Congratulations!

We are SO ecstatic for you Mrs. Kristina + Mr. Brocky. Love you both and can't believe you're going to hold out till you give birth to find out the sex. But, it is one of the biggest surprises of your life.

xoxo, Jillian + Scott

Kristina, I'm so behind on my blogs. And since I'm home sick today, I figured it was a good day to catch up on a lot of them. Anyway, I was reading your blog, and I saw a post about a baby, and I was confused, so I went back in blog-time and found this post. A big heartfelt congratulations to you and your husband. This is soooo exciting! You're going to be a great mom. And that is going to be one well-fed baby! : O )
