We were at our friend’s house for a BBQ on Monday having a great time. Every time I turned around Tony was pulling me into whatever conversation he was having and would say “Babe did you tell so and so the news?”. I would laugh and tell him I hadn’t. I was just enjoying his excitement. At first. By the 97th time we repeated this interaction I finally just said to him “No Tony, I haven’t told them, I don’t think the caterer cares that we are having a baby”. At one point he had us in a circle of people discussing baby names. One of our friends, who thinks that children are only cute on TV, whispers to me “Ugh, is this how it’s going to be now?” I just smiled at him and said “Yeah. This is how it’s going to be now”.
Later that night as we were getting into the car I thanked the valet for his well wishes on our pregnancy and turned to look at my man. He was beaming. He is so proud and happy to be having this baby. What a lucky kid this is. What a lucky man I am.
