We're Expecting!


That’s right! Allison is pregnant and we are expecting sometime in October. It has been tough to keep this quiet because many people know especially some folks who frequent this blog. And I know they have been dying to say something.

About a year ago Allison and I went down to PA and picked up a toddler shirt from Susquehanna. Then we picked one up at homecoming weekend at Saint A’s last year. It is undecided where our little bundle will end up but we are planting the seeds of higher education early.

Go Hawks!

    I’m really happy for the two of you. I did that six times (have a baby) so I remember the excitement well. I’ll be checking back in!

  14. Lisa says:

    I hate to tell you this but there is no “we” in pregnant. Its all her. LOL Of course, this is coming from a person due in 57 days (not that I am counting but I have a cool widget that tells me everyday).


  15. Drew says:

    Thanks Polliwog. Very psyched that you are commenting. Been watching your blog for some time and see that you’ve been by. Thanks for the comment. We are very exited and more will be posted as time goes by.

  16. Drew says:

    Ha, Ha, thanks Lisa, yeah, I know there is no we in pregnant. I did clarify in the post. The title had been We’re Expecting instead of big News but then I figured that gave away too much up front. 🙂

    I’ve been following your blog and noticed the widget, yep very cool.

  17. Autumn says:

    As Lisa said, there’s no “we”. I tried that excuse when I started to put on weight too. It’s called sympathy weight but she wasn’t buying it.
