Baby talk

Just a quick note to anyone has spoken with us in the past nine months or so:

We apologize for all of the baby talk.  It seems it is just about the only thing we can talk about.  We very quickly gained the remarkable ability to turn any topic of conversation back to the pending arrival of our baby; or the baby classes we have taken; or the morning sickness experienced; or the baby gadgets we have purchased; or the physiological changes thereto appertaining.   It seems that the whole experience has given us a one-track-mind.  We want you all to know that we recognize this, but seem to be at a loss to do anything to control it.  So while we will likely continue to prattle on about baby this and baby that, we apologize for our repetitiveness, our singlemindedness, and what must certainly be our mawish glee.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
