|The night of the test. We think this is...good news?|
Though initially terrified (seriously check those faces), we are getting towards the wildly excited end and are doing our best to figure out how to have a a baby in Germany. I am freaking out and keeping the US family informed on a tumblr of random at In Berlin, Baby. If you too find yourself interested in why we have considered the name Clovis for our offspring or what movies we are watching to prepare (movies are the new books, right?) - head on over.
On the other end of the spectrum, the parents are coming! Once again, my brave parents are trekking over the ocean from the American west coast and this time landing in Copenhagen. I will be meeting them up there where we are sure to cry and be fools saying hi again for the first time in almost a year. Ian will meet us the next day in Hamburg and then we will finally show them our new home in Berlin. Thought they've seen it on TV, this will be their first viewing in person. I hope they like it, and will forgive us the stairs.
We'll be taking advantage of European adventuring taking trips to see my cousins in Zurich, our foreign exchange student studying in Frankfurt, dodging into France for a bit and taking a trip for pottery into Poland.And of course we'll be touring more of our favorite city - BERLIN! I will have to put together a comprehensive list of "Where to take your parents in Berlin" sometime, maybe for my new about.com job or on EasyExpat.
In any case, I have so enjoyed posting more useful stuff on this blog about places in the city and travel in Europe and will get away from this icky personal stuff again soon. But for now, thanks for allowing me to announce all of our happenings.
If you want to see where these next few weeks take us, I'll be posting snippets on instagram, check out the picture post archive - ah! and have a slew of scheduled posts for about.com Germany Travel. For now, we'll just keep jumping.
