A year ago today...

A year ago today, I "came out" on Twitter and Facebook about being preggers with Nova. What better way to mark this day than to announce that we are once again expecting a little one? :))

Introducing our very own grey... or skrik (he/she DOES look like that famous Munch painting, right?)... who will be henceforth be referred to as Nev Naranek. Pronounced NEHV, it could be short for Neville, or an alternate spelling for Neve (which itself can be pronounced NEHV or NEEV), hence serving as a gender-neutral moniker for the internets.

Nev is due in the teens of July.

I freely admit that the first thing that popped into my mind when they told us the due date was "Hmm. I guess I'm gonna have to hold him or her in just a few days longer than that, in order to have a Leo!" Haha, I have my priorities! I was denied a Summer Solstice baby after all, so it would be nice to have a fellow Leo... ;)

Updates as and when time, kid(s) and energy allow!



  1. Congratulations - but it is still and always a mystery to me why, having once had a baby, a woman would do that again. I mean, doesn't that HURT?

  2. @Dot: :) Thanks!

    @Katja: Thank you :)

    @LceeL: LoL! Well, for me the birth itself was actually quite easy (I've not blogged about it yet, getting there...): no painkillers, no epidural, etc etc. The rearing of the child(ren) for the next 2 decades or so, though? Now THAT's gonna be painful!! :D

  3. Congratulations on your new Nev.

  4. Congratulations! Your little ones will be the same age apart as my sister and I are and it was perfect growing up!

  5. @Tara: Thank you :)

    @Corrin: Thanks! I hear good things about "clustering"/"bunching" kids... a little crazy in the early years, but great once they've grown a little. I hope I survive the crazy early years!!:)

  6. Awesome!! Congratulations to you and your family.

  7. WOW!!Congratulations!!!

  8. Thanks Catherine! And Tracie too, a few months late, sorry! :) It's been tough finding time to blog let alone follow up comments! :p
