I’m back! It’s been a long time since I posted a blog and I’m very sorry to you special folks who read my blog. There have been so many things going on that I don’t even know where to begin. So, I’m going to start with the big news first.
Are you ready?
We are having baby #2! It’s very exciting for our family. Not that L.L. knows what’s coming. I’m due at the end of June or early July. At the last ultrasound the baby measured for a due date of June 30th or July 1st. Here is a pic, if you look closely you can see the little hands.
We found out I was pregnant right after we came back from Colorado visiting family. It was very special news, but of course, I was paranoid since I had been in a hot tub and had beers while we were there. As it turns out everything is fine and all my worrying was just to keep me occupied between feeling like crap-zola! (I made that one up a while ago, because I felt worse than normal crapola.)
I have a few blog posts in the line up from our summer, our adventures this past autumn and more news on the pregnancy. Yay! For now I will leave you with our Christmas card picture and a pic of me this past weekend. Our Christmas card announced the pregnancy, but a lot of people missed it in the message on the back. It was quite comical figuring out that a lot of people don’t thoroughly read cards. The conversation went like this:
Friend: Hey, we got your card – love it! Thanks so much.
Me: Awesome, thanks and you’re welcome! Great to know everyone got our big news.
Friend: Wait, I think I missed something. Must go back and look at the card again!
So, I will tell you the little clues we put into the picture on the front. Those aren’t as easy to pick out, but there were a few that did notice them! See the little star/snowflake on the right by Gil’s arm? Well, there’s the first sonogram picture of the new baby! Then we have little American flags above our heads for the due date. At the time we were told July 3rd, so it was to represent a possible Independence Day baby. We had fun making the card, even though, trying to get all of us in a picture together where most of us look good isn’t easy on a timer with a toddler and squirmy doggie!
