As easy as 1, 2, 3...

Day one we found the flat.

Day two we signed the contract.

Day three the test was positive.

Then it all began... the trousers getting tighter, the scans moving from bean to peanut to a baby-shaped mass of dancing limbs and waving hands, the gasps and smiles as we told people. It's a very strange thing when you realise you are responsible for what will be a new life; a new human being. Strange and ultimately terrifying when you consider the responsibility you have taken on; the amount of worrying and learning you have committed yourself to and the thrilling open horizon of what your life will become.

We're excited. Let the next stage of our lives begin.
