Lavinia and I have good news that we can finally make public, we are expecting! Our due date is not until October 9th, so we are still early, but we’ve received enough positive news that we are comfortable letting everyone know. So now you know (and as you remember from earlier posts, “Knowing is half the battle”).
We don’t know the sex of the baby yet, but we’ll find out soon. Right we are calling it Jeffrita and Shepito. I guess that is what you get when you cross an Irish dude with a Hispanic lady. The Jeffrita name comes from Lavinia’s mom. The first xmas season Lavinia and I were married we asked her what she wanted for xmas. She said she wanted a Jeffrita. The name has stuck since then. Poor kid. I’m going to mess him/her up enough without the extra help of ridiculous nickname.
Any way, Lavinia and I are very excited, as is Uncle Mark (aka Uncle Um-Pik). We just wanted to share the news!
