Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you and yours! I have a renewed desire to write and post here again, and you've probably already guess why that is. Yes, we are so eager to share that a new little one will be joining our family July 4th, 2014! Our kid will become kids, which is still so crazy to think about. It has been a fun little secret to keep to ourselves, but as you can tell, it becomes a little bit trickier the second time around when overnight, it seems, you wake up with an expanded belly. I'm sure some of you had a hunch when I took a 3 month vaycay from this space which was mostly due to the fact that I had little desire to peel myself off the couch for fear I would hurl. Oi, 1st trimester, you are the worst! Zoey and I had many days at home and this mama let her watch lots of TV as I sat with my head on the table munching on one of the 4 things that tasted OK for 12 weeks: yogurt, cereal, toast, or soup. Seriously, what did pregnant ladies do before honey toast and ginger tea?
The past couple weeks have felt pretty good, besides a tendency to start yawning around 10pm at night. I am grateful for a toddler that still naps so that I can rest when she does in the afternoon. We are excited to be under the care of the same midwife that delivered our Zoey and we have already had a couple appointments that have basically involved Zoey exclaiming that there is a baby in mama's tummy and asking, "growing?" So happy to report that this little one is growing well!
