A little project announcement

The kids are in bed, Superman is out saving the world, and here I am with a creamsicle.  Sounds like the perfect time for me to break my blogging silence.  Just let me finish this amazingness on a stick.  Ok.  Done.  Let's go.

Our computer is still dead.  Right now, we're in the process of extracting and revitalizing it.  My parents were kind enough to let me use their lap top, so I'm getting re-used to the macs of my youth.  {my parents are die hard mac lovers, by the way.  Die hard.}

So all of the projects that I have previously sewn or prepped to blog about have been put on hold.  And that's fine.  It's been a good break.

But there's one little project I should probably clue you in on. 
Yup, yup, yup.  We're gonna have a baby!  I know, right?

And it's a girl!  This was me today mastering the art of the bathroom selfie....before I ate dinner.  
You should see how much I grow once I eat--let's just say that the shirt that I was wearing doesn't fit anymore.  Also, let's all take a moment of silence for the bags under my eyes.  

Thank you.  Let's move on.

I wanna say that I'm 23/24 weeks along, but truth be told, I can't remember.  And it's so nice not to remember!  Pregnancy is beautiful, but sometimes the "counting down" makes things drag.  I've always wanted to remember that I was pregnant, but not be thinking about it all the time, does that make sense?  When I was pregnant with Madelyn, all I did was think about it.  It's all I wanted to talk about and concentrate on because I was in a lot of pain.  This time around has been so relaxing and calm.  I still hurt, I still had morning sickness, I still walk into a room and can't remember why the heck I'm in there, but somehow, I forget that it's because I'm pregnant.  It's been a really nice blessing.  :)  And forgive me if I sound flippant.  Having a baby is something that I know some women aren't able to do and I don't take that lightly.  I'm just thankful that I haven't felt burdened. 

Now if you're the type who has already pulled out your calculator and done the math, then yes you nosey biddy ;), you're right, we do tend to have our babies close.  But believe it or not, this is our longest space in between kids.  A whole 21 months!  :)  We are beyond excited that it's a girl.  I'll admit, I was surprised because I just had boy on the brain--boy nursery planning, boy baby names, boy, boy, boy--so I had to ask the ultra-sound tech to double check, just for my sanity.  :)  But she assured me, "It is definately, definately a girl."  We feel very blessed.

In blog land, if posts slow down, people seem to assume that you're either deathly ill or pregnant.  I think it's funny.  I've known that we've been expecting since the first of November, so I feel like the pace here has slowed enough and I feel good.  I still plan on posting once or twice a week, if and when our computer gets put back into commission....whenever that will be.  

So for now, Superman and I hope and pray for a healthy, strong baby {she's due the day after my b.day--what a fun present that would be!} Lila hopes and prays that we name her Belle, Mary, Scarlowie, Sarah, or Syra {I think that last one had to do with the pancakes on her syrup this morning...}. Ezra hopes the baby will magically turn into a boy.  And Madelyn, well, she's got no idea what's coming.  Good thing we've got a few more months to prepare.  :) We're about to go all baby town on this blog, so gear up!  :)

  1. Congratulations! I am 24 weeks now too, but I look so much bigger than you! And it's a boy, my second child. I am excited that I get to sew more boyish clothes now, but it would have been ok for me to have another girl... hehehe
    I wish you the rest of a great pregnancy and an easy birth.
