We are having a baby. SURPRISE.

Bub is due on the 22/07/05 and we are very excited.

There have been a few complications that we werent expecting due to my previous health history and brain surgery etc, but at this stage everything is manageable.

Wow, there will need to be a section for Hoppers Babys soon!! biggrin biggrin biggrin biggrin

they have almost as much energy as he does wink
he'd make a great auntie! hug

christie and troy - your child might not know it yet but he/she is so very lucky.

to be blessed with being born into this world with you two as the people who will raise him/her is enough to know that he/she will be a beautiful human being.

i wish you all the health, luck and happiness in the world.

hug love, smiles and congratulations to the three of you hug

P.K you are definatly going to be uncle... and yes Mech you can be the weird auntie. Every family needs one.

We are so touched by your guys lovely messages, and we are saving like mad so that when Lil'Bub is a year old we can bring them to the uk... to meet the extended family.

Arsn really wants to teach the kiddling poi, and staff straight away. I think though, we may wait until lil bub can hold their head up properly... tee hee! ubblove ubblove ubbrollsmile

WOW! That's FANTASTIC!!!

So a few Jewish traditions you should know about:

We never say the name of the baby before the baby is born. Bad luck. We give him/her a fake, temporary name to use instead. We pick a name that we'd love to give to a kid, but aren't cruel enough to. My parents called me "Luigi." My cousin was "Fletch." My niece was "Zelda." etc. It's not an exclusively Jewish tradition, so I don't know if "Bub" is yours, since it is a unique name.

We never congratulate expectant parents on a pregnancy. TERRIBLE luck. And I don't want to do that to you, of course. Congratulations come after the birth.

We never give presents before the birth. Again, bad luck.

So for now, I will wish you the best of luck for an uneventful pregnancy, an easy birth, and a healthy baby.

And I look forward to the day he's born because then I can 1) Congratulate you and 2) send a present!

And I look forward to watching him spin in about 15 years... He's gonna be awesome. weavesmiley
