Today's the day, folks, for the big announcement! I've gotten clearance from Brian to make this post, so here it goes! May I have a drumroll...
After much anticipation from mothers, grandparents, even the wayward stranger, we have decided to enlarge our precious little family to include another baby! Yes, you heard right! I'm pregnant!
Andrew will no longer be an only child on (or around!) February 11, 2010. I'm currently between 7-8 weeks into the game. There will be three years (and some months) in between the two little buggers, which is a nice little gap, I believe!
Things are coming along nicely, if you don't factor in the persistant, horrible nausea and vomiting. Thank goodness that the doctor gave me a prescription yesterday for a nausea medicine, otherwise I think I would have just wasted away! It's funny how incredibly different two pregnancies can be. I hardly even knew I was pregnant with Andrew, and now here I am sick as a dog with this baby. Hopefully, though, this will be the only difference, since my first pregnancy went so well.
We're excited, but still have that "what have we done" look on our faces on occasion. I'm sure it'll be fine. It's like that scene in "Father of the Bride 2" when Nina (the grandmother) looks out her window and sees mother and daughter skipping down the sidewalk eating ice cream, and George (the grandfather) sees a son throwing his ice cream on his father and then running away... Except Brian is the happy-go-lucky stars in his eyes, and I'm seeing doomsday!
We've got a lot to accomplish in seven (too short) months...Andrew needs to get potty-trained, Andrew needs to give up the paci, and I've got one heck of a stockpile to build! Luckily we still have much of our baby stuff, we'll just need to fill a closet or two with diapers and wipes, but it shouldn't be too difficult.
On a parting note, I thought I'd share with you some of the cravings I've had in the last three weeks or so. In no particular order:
Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, on a waffle cone
Jalapeno Poppers (the ones at Sonic)
Potatoes (I've eaten at least two each day!)
Larry's Giant Subs (?!)
And now I've gone and made myself hungry...though how can I be? I just ate a twelve (12) pack of nuggets from ChickFilA...!
