Pro-create in '98, indeed!
At 3:30 p.m. today, the results came in: positive.
We are having another baby.
Damn! We are good at conceiving. I pray this baby is healthy more than anything in the world. That's the only thing that matters.
So…I ran downstairs, test hidden behind my back, tried to come up with a creative way to tell Dan, and instead, kneeled by the couch, giggled and blurted it out.
He was very happy. I'm very happy. Hopefully, Aidan will be happy. And hopefully, our new baby will be happy and healthy.
Because he or she will be loved beyond reason.

I set the post time to the very minute he arrived, 8 short years ago.
Happy birthday, Coleman Asher. How lucky are we?
