WWU - We're Having a BABY!!!!!

Well, not me.  That ship has sailed.  But we, the collective, the royal, the Renegade Run Club - WE are having a baby!!!  I keep wanting to break out in the song Ricky Ricardo sang to Lucy when she told him she was pregnant - click here if you want to see the video...it's such a sweet moment and seriously, it's such a perfectly happy song that epitomizes the anticipation and joy of a baby on the way.
CC and LOLO.

Our dear friends have been wanting this baby for quite a while, and it's finally become a reality - CC is pregnant.  Sure, the baby will live with her and Loretta, but it's OUR baby - our first little running club baby!  We are all so thrilled and excited for them; this baby is much loved already and we can't wait until January to meet the newest member of the RRC.  Our running family is growing and we couldn't be happier.
After we ran on Saturday, they had a gender reveal at Blue Baker.  They'd told Brian, so he (with Cary's help) colored in mini Hershey's bars with either "he" or "her" and we all chose one; it was fairly evenly divided between boy and girl.  Jeff and I both picked this:
HE.  Were we right?

We were!  It's a boy!!!  Here's CC with the reveal candy bar:
She is so tiny that her baby bump is really showing already!

So that's our - OK, CC and Loretta's - happy news.  CC won't be running Houston this January, being that she'll be a brand new mama by then, but she's still doing an easy three miles with us on Saturdays, while Loretta bikes and tries not to worry too much about CC.  And of course you know I am finding all kinds of baby things to knit; tiny baby things are the best!

  1. How fun to have a baby in your group! Congrats to the expectant parents.
    Yes knitting baby clothes and blankets are the best. We are going to have a great grandson in October.
