Mother's Day

I thought Mother's Day would be a good day to make our BIG announcement.......

DRUM ROLL......

We are adding another munchkin to our bunch!! Notice I didn't say 2 ... we are thankfully adding only 1!! :) I love my twin boys, but I don't know that I could have handled two more! So our new addition will be here around November 6! I am currently 14 weeks along and feeling great!! The first trimester was pretty easy except for being exhausted all of the time. It is just hard to squeeze in naps with 2 wild men, but thankfully I am getting my energy back. Hopefully the condition of my house will start to show that I have my energy back very soon!!

We definitely plan to find out the sex of the baby and as all mothers say, I just hope it is healthy. Of course I would love to add a little girl to this testosterone filled bunch, but as cliche as it sounds....I don't really care about boy or girl, just healthy!! I have however decided that winter is a much better time to be pregnant than summer for several reasons. I know it is only going to get hotter and more miserable as I get bigger this summer. Not looking forward to that. Perhaps worst of all though is the clothing for the summer. At least when you are pregnant in the winter you can sort of cover up the areas that just aren't so flattering while you are pregnant...it is REALLY hard to do that in a bathing suit!!! We are going on vacation to the beach in a few weeks and I asked Joe if I could just wear a cover up the whole vacation instead of a real swimsuit. He promptly told me "no" and took me bathing suit shopping. Not fun. While I was trying on my bathing suits the employ outside the dressing room at Motherhood talked Joe's head off about how much pregnant women hated trying on bathing suits. She then proceeded to say that was the only bad thing about being so small and petite while working at a maternity store, the pregnant women really disliked her....then she gave a really annoying laugh. I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to come out of the dressing room and hit her, but that was probably my hormones just getting the best of me...... Luckily I held back.... I would like to say though, that my husband told me he thought I looked beautiful pregnant and in a bathing suit. He said there is a special beauty in it because I am carrying something that is a part of us and he helped create. What sweet words that meant a lot!

Anyway...all that being said... all that is just a small price to pay for the wonderful miracle that is going to come into our lives in November. We are excited and scared all at the same time. It has been 3 years since I have had little babies around so I feel like I have forgotten everything. I am sure it will all come back to me at that first cry!! Please join us in praying that I have an easy and stress free pregnancy (particularly no kidney stones) and that the baby will be healthy!



BTW - the boys don't really know how their lives are going to change in November. :) We talk about it around them, but we haven't actually sat them down and talked to them about it yet. I know once we do, they will be asking me everyday if the baby is coming! They will make great big brothers!!!
