There's something in the oven...

It's a bun!  That's right, sometime on or around December 24th I'll be having a baby!  I can't begin to express how excited and happy we are.

It's been tough keeping this secret off the blog for the past 4 months, although a couple of my friends said they had their suspicions during the weeks when I only ate egg sandwiches and smoothies.  Sorry about that exceedingly boring blog time.  I'd also say it explains why I've been eating so much ice cream and cheese, but let's be honest, I'd probably be doing that anyway.

I will likely be getting an email from Jon telling me I'm embarassing him, but he has been wonderful and I am so lucky to have him.  He has patiently sat through many, many doctors appointments, and put up with quite a few crazy pregnancy things from me, including but not limited to:

-Those rough weeks in the beginning when I couldn't walk through the kitchen or smell food, ate only egg sandwiches, smoothies, and peanut butter and jelly, and lay in bed all day watching reruns of the OC on Soapnet.
-The fortress of pillows I have constructed in our bed partnered with my tossing, turning and getting up all night.  Might be time to think about upgrading to a King...
-Random crying.  Usually related to something in a book, movie, tv show or commercial.  Some make sense, I mean it was a bad idea for me to watch Marley and Me while 3 months pregnant.  But who knew the ESPN top 10 most exciting moments in sports (of which I barely recognized one) would set me off?
-My constant worry about all the possible things that can go wrong.  He has only threatened a few times to cut off my internet access if I don't stop googling things and freaking myself out.
-Finally, the most important thing when dealing with a pregnant woman, don't get between her and a snack or a nap.

I joke about the crazy pregnancy stuff, but we are so incredibly lucky and blessed.  I can't wait to bring this tiny person into our family so I can smother them with love...and outfits!


  1. Congrats! I can't imagine how much i'd worry during the first trimester, so double congrats on getting through that with your sanity in tact. I'm a friend of Heidi Grothaus, by the way, in case you were wondering what random person subscribed to your blog yesterday!

  2. @theskyandback Thanks, Tanya! I'm still worrying all the time, driving my husband crazy, but every day is a step in the right direction. Heidi passed your blog along to me a few days ago, it's very good, I'm adding it to my reader now!
