My mom keeps asking me to start a baby blog. So here it is. I love you, Mom!
After what felt like an eternity of waiting, my husband and I are expecting our first child circa November 2010. This blog will be the place to chronicle pregnancy and baby developments and our life in D.C. — a place I find endlessly entertaining.
We live, work, play and worship in the District. Like many D.C. residents my age, I occasionally fantasize about moving some place “normal.” But I must say, I love life in here. We have no current plans to leave. So it was a bit off when we started telling people I was pregnant and one frequent question was: “Are you moving?” We own our house. It has more than one bedroom. I bet people in that situation in, say, Massachusetts, do not get that question. But such is the transient life in D.C. … and the perception that it is impossible to raise a child here.
I’ve never done it, so I certainly don’t know if it is possible or not to raise a DC baby. But here is where you’ll get to read about me trying.
Baby’s in-utero name is “Pavo.”
Husband’s on-blog name is “Ned” or “P” or “Superman” … none of which are related to eachother but all of which are related to him in some way or another.
