There's a Baby in There!



I couldn't help it.  Had to take a nerdy photo to help tell you all that we are having a baby!! 


Hooray!! 


I'm due July 27th  :)


True Confession:  Back in 2008 when I started this blog, I seriously did it so that I would have an established blog all ready to go once I had a baby.  No joke. I had this brilliant epiphany at work one day after seeing a friend-of-a-friend's blog who had pictures of herself pregnant and then with her baby.  I thought, Wow! great idea!  So that's what a blog thing is for!  I want to start one now so I won't have to do that once I'm pregnant.


Lucky for me (and you) I realized there is much more to a blog than that, and so many other things you can talk about!  The willy-nillyness of this little blog has probably reflected my total lack of direction and focus from the start, which lucky for me means I just talk about my life most of the time.  Baby S will be a part of my life for ... well, ever... so I will probably talk a lot about that.  Sorry.  Warned you.  However, we have a lot of projects coming up to get ready for this, so I will certainly share alllll about that as well.  Probably overshare.  But that's what I do.


Anyway, we are excited!  My due date is actually finals week for summer semester.... which, not ideal, but I'm taking online classes so I hope it will be ok.  Also, wow.  They are not joking about morning all day sickness.  I have been pretty much incapacitated for the past 6 weeks, but hoping it's coming to an end soon. I literally had to stop using Pinterest for a while because the sight of the food made me sick.  Tony has starved because I won't let him cook basically anything.   Ick.  Good thing it's all worth it.  And thank goodness for Canada Dry and saltines.


And probably due to my complete disregard for proper nutrition over the last month (inadvertently, sorry Baby... use that monster vitamin well) I feel like my stomach got huge early (despite the fact that I've lost weight...).  I totally get that it's not baby and more so the inability to suck in what was already there, but I'm running with it.  I've been waiting to replace fat bump with baby bump  :)  Plus, my generous sister and sister-in-law gave me a bunch of cute clothes that I just want to wear.  So there. :)


Yay baby!

    I'll admit that everytime you post something to "future bebes" on Pinterest, I squinted suspiciously at it and wondered if you were knocked up. Then, I'd talk myself out of it. WOW! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I'm very, very excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited to read all about your pregnancy and then the wee one, yay!!! Really, the day I saw it on FB, I called John and was like, "guess who's pregnant!!!" (meanwhile, I had already done this about 4 times the week before for all the other preg blog girls) and he guessed it was you! We're such dorks but obvs. big fans of the S family :)
