Guess what people!

You've got to guess!

Fine, I'll tell you. There is a new breakthrough in math.

Get it?


I'll tell you then.

The Compensator family is having a baby. In June we will hear the pitter patter of little Compensator/Gordita feet. We are excited, thrilled really. We have waited for this for so long. However, there's still a twinge of panic for both of us. Funny how you can want something for so long, and then when it happens you feel completely unprepared. At any rate, we are excited to have a little person in our lives. 

On that note, I've been sick, but now that I'm out of my first trimester I am starting to feel better little by little. My waistline is increasing and fewer and fewer of my clothes fit. It's a bit alarming, and I find it difficult to be okay with the increased girth, but rationally I know that this has to happen, and that it's all for the little one's good.

Some time I'll bore you with all of the strange and interesting symptoms of pregnancy. I find it all fascinating, if not a little odd and sometimes frustrating.

*TC, the family doctor and scientist who spends most of his days with mathematics had nothing to do with this gross miscalculation. In fact, if he knew I put that on our blog, he'd probably cringe at least a little, and maybe begin a tirade on the importance of mathematics in our lives. But really, that's why I love him. 


  1. I can't wait to have a little Rodriguez in our family! Aunt Kimmie loves the little children. :)

  2. Yay!!! Congrats!!!! How exciting. I blame pregnancy hormones for the weird feelings regarding my pregnant figure. Logically it's magical, necessary, beautiful. Emotionally it's nuts. Dumb. I blame hormones, or something. Glad you are feeling well. Hurray for babies!

    With your waistline increasing, can you believe we ever asked our primary teachers and YW leaders if they were pregnant? I'm horrified at the tactless behavior from my youth. :-)
