H read my first post. He asked me to make a correction (he didn't actually, but he pointed out an inaccuracy).
Apparently, he was ready to make a baby well before January but didn't broach the subject earlier because I had made it clear that go-time wouldn't happen until this year.
My one piece of advice to all the 30+ years olds out there - don't wait, just start trying. In hindsight, I wish I had jumped on the baby-making train much earlier than I did. The timing will never be perfect (and even when it is, you may have to wait another 3, 4, 12 months until you actually conceive). So all aboard!
