Major News!

So, this has officially become best year ever territory.  I already thought it had been.  I mean Mike and I got married, he signed with his hometown team the next day, and we were in Aruba the day after that.  It didn't seem like it could get any better.  And then it did.

That's right, folks.  Baby McKenna is on the way!  I've got until May until I can meet the little green olive (or so the bump tells me is currently baby's size).  I don't think Bauer understands why we stuck a skate lace attached to paper around his neck quite yet, but I'm confident he'll enjoy being a big brother.

Mike and I have known since just after Labor Day, but wanted to hold on to the secret until after the first doctor's visit.  Once we got the "everything looks great" we couldn't hold the news in any longer.  Somehow I've managed to luck out on not getting any of this morning sickness I was so worried about.  Aside from being exhausted all the time, I feel perfectly fine!  We're both pretty terrified, but super excited as well!  Can't wait to meet him or her!


  1. Congrats congrats congrats Rachel! So happy for you and Mike! I was so close to getting mad at our fellow twitter-hockey girls because I didn't want to know the secret until I read your post (even though I had a hunch it was baby M)! Congrats again girl!

  2. Awesome news! Congrats to you both!

  3. Congratulations to both you and Mike!! Here's to a healthy baby in seven months' time :)

  4. I am so excited for you and Mike. You guys will be great parents. Have to keep watching the blog to see if its a boy or girl, are you going to find out or not?

    1. Yes, we are going to find out. We're both planners, so no way we couldn't. It's already driving us nuts that we don't know yet!

  5. Congrats, Rachel and Mike! How exciting. Glad you're feeling well :)
