The Shapiro Files

Big News!

Yes, the rumors are true: We’re expecting yet another new addition to our family! Baby Shapiro #2 (”v2.0” to our Silicon Valley friends) is due in mid-March.

And now, here’s a quick FAQ to address some questions this announcement may generate:

Q: Boy or Girl?
A: We’re hoping to find out later this month (if Baby S. cooperates of course)

Q: Didn’t you just have a baby?
Time certainly does fly by when you’re having fun! But actually, Melody already turned 1 last month (September 12). She and her new sibling will be 18 months apart.

Q: Um, I don’t know how to ask this delicately, but...
A: Yes, this was intentional! We were hoping that Melody would have a sibling close in age and that such chronological closeness would also lead to a close relationship.

Q: Where is baby #2 going to sleep?
A: Although our new house is a little smaller than our last, Melody’s room is actually considerably larger than her previous one. So after the initial bassinet/sleeping-in-our-room phase, Baby Shapiro #2 will be sharing a room with his/her older sister. Additionally, our long-term goal is to expand our house and add a new room. So the kids will also have the option of getting their own rooms at that time if they desire it.

I’ll have more updates (including boy or girl news) soon. Keep checking back!
