You may have noticed me being MIA lately. I had hoped it could be chalked up to moving and gift guiding, but some of you are getting wise to it and sending out SOS emails and asking if I’m ok (which I love). I’m definitely more than ok. I have another reason I’ve been gone from the internets and this blog and Twitter lately…
We have another little bun on the way!
I couldn’t be more excited, truly, it’s always such a miracle to conceive a child. This one seems to be his or her OWN person, because I’m the sickest I’ve ever been with any pregnancy ever. Seriously. EVER.
I’m 11 weeks already, I wanted to wait a bit to announce just because, well I don’t really know why. I thought about my loss 5 months ago, it made me scared to tell anyone. But it also had nothing to do with it. It was just nice having this secret that I told a few people, and otherwise kept to just my household.
But I’m happy to share this with you now, so you’ll know why I disappear now and then (it’s not because I don’t love you, it’s because I’m loving the porcelain more right now). Thanksgiving was mostly me feeling sick and not being able to go out with the family when they wanted to hit the beach. But I’ll always remember it as the first Thanksgiving with 4 children, even if one was still just in the womb.
The only thing sounding good is grilled cheese or Italian ice or just ICE. Also my mom’s salad which is just basically iceberg lettuce, celery, cucumber and vinegar and oil. Oh and I must dip my grilled cheese in mustard. But once I use the mustard, get it away from me because it grosses me out just sitting there like it does.
I can’t wait to chronicle this pregnancy here, even though I’ve been blogging since 2004, I started a week before boy #2 was born, and took a break from blogging during my 3rd pregnancy. This will be a first for me, and I’m so excited!
Can’t wait to add a 4th to that little train that goes exploring each day…either a 4th boy to get in step right along with his brothers, or a 1st girl who will rule them all. Wow. Four kids!
