Introduction — The Bump
LGBT Parenting



Been a long time lurker mainly due to a crazy work schedule, but now that I'm on maternity leave I'm finally getting around to becoming more active on the bump.
I'm Jess and my wife is Danielle.  We've been together since 2010, legally married in 2012, and just had our first child (Charley) in March.  Also, we happen to have an 11 month old fur baby named Frisbee who is way more like a toddler than an actual dog.

We were extremely lucky to have convinced on our first try through ICI at home and had a relatively smooth pregnancy / labor thanks to endless help and support from our wonderful doula.  

Since we are the first in our circle of friends to get married and have kids, the transition from our pre-baby lives to the wide world of endless diapers and bottles has been interesting to say the least.  Especially for me, since I am currently a SAHM until at least the end of august.

Anywho, looking forward to getting to know you guys and posting more often!
