We went to the midwife today and we heard the heartbeat. The baby is alive! And active - lots of kicks. She said she saw my stomach move with one of the kicks so I should be able to feel them soon (Yay!). I layed on the table crying.
We are two women with a dog and a toddler and we want to add more to our family. We are an interracial, intercultural, multi-religion, vegetarian, urban family. Follow our journey.
We met in 1997 on the first day we moved into our dorms freshman year of college, when we were 18. We became fast friends and were rarely apart. K made me laugh like no one else ever had, and I was mesmerized. It was like that Oasis song, "She is Electric, can I be electric too?". That was love, but we didn't know how to recognize it, so we called it friendship.
During our junior year of college, we could no longer ignore that we were indeed more than friends. Everyone else seemed to know this before we did, but we were scared. Not long after, we were engaged. We have been together ever since, inseparable and way too cute.
In 2005 we were finally married after a five year engagement, not the longest engagement, but it felt like it. In 2007 we bought a condo and adopted the cutest pug ever. In 2009 baby our baby girl D was born. Now we are ready to embark on the journey toward baby #2. I am 31 and K is 30.
