a long time ago

(What seems like) a long time ago, just after Ru and I moved to the GTA, we were talking about planning a family. At the time it seemed a bit like a dream, something in our distant future. We didn't know when it would happen, if it would happen, or how we would ever get it to happen. And we certainly didn't want to get our hopes up. But when we came across a certain piece of baby clothing at the Toronto Women's Bookstore, we couldn't pass it up. Here is what it said:

(in case you can't see, it says "I was hatched by two chicks")

We decided it would be the one and only baby thing we would buy until we actually got pregnant. We kept it like a promise, hoping that one day we'd have a use for it. When I got pregnant on our very first try, I looked and it and hoped that I'd carry the baby to term. And now that summer's here, we have a Signal to put in it!

Dreams really can come true. And Signal, in his yellow romper, is living proof.

we agree with you. Who would have thought that such a wonderful small person would have come into our lives. Congratulations to the chicks and hugs to the egg!!!
