12:14 am - And if your curiosity's satisfied...
For those who were wondering, yesterday's post is, in fact, true.

We couldn't resist, once we learned the news, to wait the extra couple days to post it on the first of April.

Thanks to all of you who wished us congratulations, and apologies to those who thought it was cruel to play it so coy.

Congratulations!!!! Oh, I'm so happy for you two!

If you have any questions, or want to share observations, or want books or swings or clothes :-), or just want support... call me. Anytime. I'll share whatever I know or have.

(And as Rich is my witness -- I swear, yesterday I was saying, "It would be just like them to actually be pregnant, but wait until April 1st to tell people just to get a reaction!")

Thanks!

I think we'll be talking soon. ;-)

Hey, if you can't add a twist to the regular April Fools joke, what fun is it? Really, though, we only found out last week literally on our way to a convention. By the time we got back, it was a no-brainer to wait the extra day. Also gave us time to tell family first.

Oh wow, you only just found out? Interesting! Yes, let's definitely talk soon. :-)

I'm serious about the swing. We've had this almost-unused Graco swing sitting here forever, and we really want the space back... And about books, first get the Sears classic "The Baby Book." (That's Dr. Sears, not Sears and Roebuck.)

The random unrelated ultrasound totally added to the gotta-be-fake.

Congratulations.

What's so different about announcing it today over yesterday? You think I don't remember you can tell a joke?! ;-)

So, what you really need from Sears is a Craftsman roll-away. Lots of drawers for diapers and such, flat bit on top for sticking the kiddo while you take care of his business, and when you're done using it as a changing table (I hear those things get bigger!), you can move it into the bedroom where it'll make a great nightstand.
..I mean, into the garage, where you can put tools into it. Or something like that.

I told a friend about how you often posted the message "We have an addition to the family" along with a photo of something like a dump truck; he said my response to your post yesterday should have been, "Oh, so you got an ultrasound machine!" :)

Oh, boy! Congratulations! This is fantastic news.

Now all of those toys in the house will have another person to play with them...

Do you know how hard it was to keep that secret at ConnCon? I'm so happy for you two!

YAY! Madeline will have a playmate! =)

But the secret was half the fun! And thanks again for the loan of the doppler. We're thinking of renting one soon.

Yeah, playdates will have to be arranged. There's a teleportation portal that links all the Milfords, right?

Oh, I would highly recommend getting one... we had a couple of scares, at points... but the doppler immediately fixed that.

And isn't 'Milford' just a plane of existence that bleeds into the Prime at several points? That would make it easy...
