Coming This November...

Changes are coming our way! Our little Baby Daetwyler is joining us November 25th, or at least whatever day around that time he or she feels like it. This explains my blogging absence and a variety of other absences this past little while. I kind of feel like this baby has been trying to kill me, but we've been getting along much better these past few days. 

We found out this little baby was growing when we were in Japan over Spring Break, which was pretty surreal! I chose to not fully believe it until I could confirm that news multiple times after we got home. I remember thinking jet lag was to blame for any changes I may have thought I was experiencing, but then I had a dream one night that I had a positive pregnancy test in my pocket and I was showing it to all sorts of strangers on the street and telling them "Don't tell my family! I want to tell them!" So my subconscious must have been aware of this little one before the rest of me, and I took a pregnancy test that next morning before I even fully woke up. I mean, you can't just ignore a dream like that, people.

Speaking of Japan, that blog post is coming tomorrow. (Really.) It has been about two months in the making, so the suspense must just be killing you, I'm sure. But I haven't accomplished a lot the last few weeks. I can't even enjoyably read a book - it feels like I'm reading while carsick in the backseat of a windy road trip. And I don't even get carsick? So, it has not been fun. Low points have included: laying on the floor thinking I will never, ever want food again while still feeling grateful as Michael makes grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner, and trying to remember the last time I cooked a meal. High points have included: hearing that speedy heartbeat just going, going, going inside of me and wondering who this little person is and what our family is going to be like.

So, absolutely no complaints here. Just explanations, and gratitude. We don't really know what we are doing. But we are happy, and in love, and ready to love a little person! I mean let's be real, we have both been giving our cat way too much attention lately. So it kind of just seems like the natural transition at this point, and I think our cat will be grateful. Or maybe she'll hate it. Like I said, we have no idea what is going to happen.

But, here we go... !


  1. I really am so excited for you guys!!! Totally made my day when I saw your insta. You guys will be great parents. I can't wait to see you as a mom!! Congrats lady! Sorry about the sickness....I hope it keeps getting better :). Yay!!!

  2. Still so excited over here! Adam and I adopted a phrase from our friends during my pregnancy and would always say, "we've boarded the train...too late to get off!" So enjoy the ride guys. You'll love it.

    *Aaaaand here's the poem by Sylvia Plath because who doesn't love a good pregnancy poem?
    I’m a riddle in nine syllables,
    An elephant, a ponderous house,
    A melon strolling on two tendrils.
    O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
    This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.
    Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.
    I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
    I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,
    Boarded the train there’s no getting off.

  3. Yay congrats!!! I wondered if that was the reason behind no blog posts. I love this blog and you two are such an amazing couple!!! Yay baby Daetwyler!!

  4. Congrats, Maddie! You are so cute! Hope you get feeling better soon...that misery is still fresh on my mind. It's so yucky and exhausting! But I'm sure the yuckiness will pay off a million times over! :) Yay for babies!!

  5. Ah! I am so excited for you two! You are going to be the best/cutest/incredible mommy!
