Never in a million years would I have thunk that Tracie P would one day be saying, “be sure to bring home some half-sours [pickles] from Ziggy’s in Houston while you’re there, baby…”
It’s true about the pickles and it’s a dream come true: Tracie P and I are going to be parents. :-)
Yesterday, we went in for our second ultrasound and we’re now in our thirteenth week, the last of the first trimester (due date is mid-December). And so, it’s finally time to share the news with our friends…
We are simply overjoyed and it seemed right (and feels good) to share this wonderful news here on the blog. So many of you have left comments, sent notes of support and love, and cheered us on as we came together, were engaged, and then married.
I wish all of you could see Tracie P right now. She’s more beautiful than ever. And I wish you could have felt the excitement that flowed through our hearts as we watched our baby’s heart beat on the monitor of the ultrasound yesterday.
Thanks, again, for all the support all of you have shared with us. We couldn’t have made it without you — friends and family — and we couldn’t have made it without each other. And we did make it… and we made a baby…
We are overjoyed…
Tracie P, I love you with all my heart and all my soul and every fiber in my body… You have given me the greatest gift of all time… I love you…
And though you don’t believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you…
Congrats, hope Traci has an easy pregnancy and you too!
so excited for the two of you!!!!!

Wonderful news. Mazel Tov! The world needs more joy like this.
Can’t wait to hear what birthday wine you’re putting away.
Ooh-rah!looks like we have a new enlistee on the way
What wonderful news! Congratulations to you both!
Very good news. Auguri to you both!!
Congratulations to you both! Wow!
Congrats guys. Such beautiful news!!
Maronna che bella notizia! Lo devo scrivere in italiano.
La cosa più normale del mondo é fare figli.
La cosa più eccezionale del mondo é avere figli
Enjoy this time of wait, a sort of limbo in which you discover new and deepets dimensions in a relationship.
Tantissimi auguri da tutti noi – I caught some of your hints too and was crossing my fingers for you both! I hope you have a great pregnancy. December babies are brilliant…
Laura, Marco, Nia, Isla and James
My goodness, thank you, everyone, for the kind and generous wishes and words of support. I can’t tell you how much they mean to both — to all three! — of us… We are surrounded by family and friends who give us so much love here in Texas… and our lives are all the more rich thanks to the “virtual” community that know through our online lives… so many of you have been cheering us on from the early days, when I first came from San Diego to visit Tracie — then B now P. It did seem a bit crazy back then: boy meets girl through blog, spends 2 months as penpal (how many emails a day did we send back then, Tracie P?), and then boards plane for mole enchiladas and dancing at the Continental Club… Your kind words and generous support means the world to both of us as we fulfill our greatest dream — making a family together. It’s still hard for me to believe that a beauty like Tracie P would even talk to a schlub like me… and as an expectant mother, she is more beautiful than ever… We’re looking forward to sharing our joy with you in coming months and I simply cannot express how much your words of love and support mean to us… Thank you… thank you, from the bottom of our hearts…
thank you everyone for the congrats, well wishes, and love–it means so much to us!
2B–what a beautiful post!! :) i am overjoyed as well, and i cannot wait to move into this next phase of life with you by my side. this is the most exciting experience that i have ever known, and it’s all too sweet for words! i love you :)
OMG this is fantastic. I had a feeling…
Good luck to you both. And a safe, and most importantly, a HAPPY pregnancy to Tracie P.
The fruit of your love, congratulations!!!
Kate and Yoann Lardeux
congrats! so psyched for you guys!
woo hoo here comes Baby P
Auguri! Now for the name, anything wine related?
Congrats to both of you! I kinda suspected a bambino(a) was gestating. There were some indications from certain people, but I’m sworn to omerta.
Let me add my official congratulations to you crazy kids.
@Marco, JP’s pink and blue Twitter page was something of a hint, no? Not to mention AC…
Jumping in a few weeks late but nonetheless overjoyed to see this post! I had a feeling you’d be announcing impending parenthood. Congrats, congrats, congrats!
Just catching up. Mazel Tov, Jeremy!!!!
I am so happy for you both.
Congratulations to you both. You must be thrilled. AC did kind of break the news on mother’s day, Strappo’s right :).
Congratulazioni! A tutti e 3 i migliori auguri.
