The Coming Age of Aunties and Uncles My Life 14 MAY 2010

So for any of you who have not yet been informed (telephone account is going to be high this month!), Chantelle and I are delighted to announce that we are indeed four weeks pregnant, with the blood test having confirmed all this on Wednesday 13 May 2010.

(Wow, nice turnaround time PathCare!)

As I’ve mentioned before, we literally started trying for a child a month ago, meaning that no matter what happens from now henceforth, at least Chantelle and I now know that conceiving is simply no hassle for awesome people such as ourselves, which of course bodes well when we start planning for the second (and last) addition to our family later on in life – hey, got to get this first one out of the way first – unless it’s twins of course – which I’m rooting for by the way! :P)

Even better news than us being pregnant is that so far everyone is proving to be very supportive, from work to family and friends, which is a great relief for us. As Chantelle’s boss Louise says, “the timing couldn’t be any worse (the guest house’s busiest period is in January), but never mind that, we’re so happy for you!”.

Of course, with a whole heap of our friends circle being currently pregnant or having just given birth, it really is going to be a great time all around and something that I’m sure is going to knit our little circles that much tighter in the long run.

So in short, I’m happy. Very, very happy.

(Overjoyed I would go as far as saying. Even chuffed with myself if I must.)

And as far as Chantelle feels about the whole matter, well you guys can guess how she’s doing (but it won’t be a very hard guess, I assure you.)

So in eight months time, Chantelle will no longer have to borrow baby Zandea to feel like a mother! :)

Besides, now she really DOES have a legitimate reason to boss me around! ;)

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I’m late to the party! Congratulations sir, may your offspring be geekier than geekdom can handle – but you know, totally hot like Chantelle. ;)

    • Oh don’t you worry. With all my initiation plans my child will be solid geek material – love for comic books, love for animation, love for programming, love for gadgets, love for gaming: got it all on my list. As for the looks department, well I’ll leave that in the capable hands of Chantelle’s DNA! :)
