The New ADDITION

You read the shirt correctly!! We are expecting another baby in November! I have known for a LONG time (since Easter) and I have been dying to say something. Have you noticed my blog has been pretty boring? I am been wanting to write about the perils and lovliness of pregnancy so everything else has been ho-hum! I felt like now was the right time! You are probably trying to do the math in your head. Let me save you some time. Yes, I will have 2 children under the age of 2 years old! Crazy? Yes, but oh so much fun! The great thing is, Kendra, my sis in law is pregnant too! Infact, the day she told me she was, was the day I went, "uh-oh, I better take a test too." Sure enough! I had to stop breastfeeding that same day. It was a good reason to sto. Anway, our kids will be 10 weeks apart (Colton and Tristan) and these two will be 6 weeks apart! How cool is that? 4 kids under the age of 2! Woohoo!
Here is my 4 week belly. I had just gotten my muscle tone all back in order and I was 10 pounds lighter than I was pre-Tristan. So much for that, eh? Those of you who did not read my blog last pregnancy, please know, I get huge. My belly is extended so far! No room in this tiny body. Therefore, yes, I am showing. Not in maternity clothes, yet, but I think in the next couple of weeks I will have to surrender. The thought of maternity clothes makes me gag!
10 1/2 weeks (i forgot to take a pic at 8 weeks!)

The difference in this pregnancy has been weird. I have been nauseated. Never was with T. Not as tired. Was sooooo tired with T. My forehead hit puberty. I am not showing as soon. I think I look wider though. Funny thing is, you just don't have TIME to sit and think about being pregnant! I chase Tristan around all and forget I am preggo! I used to just sit and ponder and daydream with the first. I am trying to take time to talk to bean and let Tristan to talk to him/her. Anyway, please send up your prayers! There will be more to post! Can't wait to share with you all! Please ask any funny questions to give me something to post about! I adore pregnancy for the most part!

I'm a friend of Charla's, and just wanted to add my congrats! I had three kids in less than three years, and it's tons of fun! My first two are 21 months apart, which worked like a dream! #2 and #3 were 14 months apart, which was tougher.

I love checking your blog! You are such a fun writer, and I can only imagine how great you are in "real life". :-)

Blessings on your growing family!
