A hobbit surprise...

"Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all that there is to know about them in a month, and yet after a hundred years, they can still surprise you."
GANDALF, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
It is with great joy and some surprise that we announce: two hobbits left the shire and three will be returning. Pamela is pregnant! The baby's due at the end of November and we are delighted.
At the moment we are staying with Pamela's sister's family- Tim, Angela, Anna and Megan in Torrance, California. It's been really nice to catch up with them and spend time with our ridiculously cute nieces. Between Anna's birthday sleepover and Megan's constant mischief, it's like attending an intense parenthood bootcamp! Help!
You will notice the absence of photos in this post due to our camera being stolen while Ryan and Tim went to watch the LA Galaxy v Rangers. We're not sure if it was a Rangers fan who lifted the camera from the hotdog stand but they also took our photos of Seattle and Whistler. We'll find some similiar photos on Flickr or Google images and write the Canada and Seattle post soon.
Hope everyone is doing good and we hope that everyone who was sitting exams got on well.
Take care. x

Love to you and the mini-bump. Things I will not say to you...

-Just wait till you face the sleepless nights.
-You just DON'T understand until you have children.
-Nothing will prepare you.
-One's nothing. Wait until you have two (not that I'd know).
-Have your fun now cos you'll have precious little chance later.
-Your life is over.

I have said before that it is not as bad as advertised. I am happier than I have ever been since Danwise came along. Regardless- other people's experiences don't matter a jot. This little hobbit will have two of the bestest parents going and you can't get much better than that.

You haven't lost a camera, you have gained a hobbit!

I think you should name the little bit after the brand of camera. Then it is like you never really lost or gained anything. Even trade.
