il bambino

For the last 2 weeks, the only internet access I had involved leaning out a second story window with an iphone in hand. We spent the last 14 days on a family trip to Italy with Abe's parents and brothers. 4 days in Rome, 7 days in a villa in Tuscany, and 3 days in Venice.

Photos and stories forthcoming.

For now, I'll post one photo by way of official blog announcement.


No, this isn't the result of too much pasta, or even of my extravagant birthday eateries in March. That's 6 months of Baby Genghis Gong. Due August 8. Alternate name suggestions welcome. It's a boy.

Congratulations! Babies for everyone.

Our last name does not lend itself as well to awesome nicknames like yours does. I won't pretend I'm not a little jealous.

Congrats! How exciting!

Chelsea said...

6 months?? You look great! Congratulations, that's so wonderful--and boys are lots of fun. As, I would imagine, is Italy--awesome!

Mrs B said...

CONGRATS!! We're due just days apart! I'm excited for you- boys are so fun- & you look so GREAT!

Yay! Congrats!

Congratulations, Erin! You'll be an awesome mom!

The Rands family likes the nickname "King". With a little boy, King Gong might be very appropriate. Congrats.

Dawn said...

Congratulations!!! Very exciting news! Very cool name too.

And Italy on top of all that? Almost happiness overload!

WOW, that is sooo exciting! Congratulations! Were you pregnant when you were here and just didn't tell us? (sneaky!)

You look fantastic, hopefully the first trimester wasn't too awful. Boy names are super hard, but we love the name Moses (it would also go very well with Abraham).

Huzzah, huzzah, Huzzah! I am so happy for you and Abe! I hope you are feeling well! Oh I am so excited for you!

Maren Hansen said...

CONGRATS!! I dunno--Genghis Gong is awfully good. The only other thing I can think of is King Gong... ;) So happy for you guys!!

Congratulations Erin! That is so exciting! We are due just a couple of weeks apart. (I'm due July 23rd with a boy as well.) I wish I was looking as great as you, though! You look lovely! So happy for you.

Jen said...

You look great!!! and so does that Italian backdrop. Can't wait to hear about your fiat adventures.

That is great news! I am so happy for you guys. Maybe we will meet him at Park City? Okay who am I kidding...to soon to be unnecessarily flying, but I am excited to meet him.

Thanks, everyone!

We're still at the drawing board as far as names go. I've been lucky to be feeling pretty great - not a lot of morning sickness and still quite mobile.

It's been fun to see other friends talking about their pregnancies who are around the same due date as me - I don't know if I'm just more keyed into it, but it seems like there are a lot of babies coming between July and August.
