The Bean is (going to be) a Boy

Many blog readers already know this, but Sarah and I are expecting our first child in April. Today, we found out that “the Bean” will be a boy, which is pretty neat, and also makes it/him quite a bit less abstract (and hence, much more terrifying…)

In any case, you needn’t fear that the blog will become nonstop baby idiocy. I promise. But I do want everyone to keep in mind that in the April-May timeframe, I may be working very intermittently as the Bean’s emergence will probably take up quite a bit of my energy. I do not think this will affect anyone currently on the waitlist, but you never know. I’m going to do my best to get ahead a bit in anticipation, of course, but I ask for your patience in advance, especially when it comes to answering emails and phone calls in that time period.

As an aside, WW team stud Nick Stevens and his lovely wife Diana are expecting twins (one boy, one girl) just a few weeks before us. Can you say “epic rivalry at 2035 UCI Worlds?”

I will update this post with a few annoying ultrasound images later this afternoon. Those folks who are friends with Sarah on Facebook can see them there, too.
