Hi everyone! Wow, it has been quite some time since my last posting. And I’m sad that I wasn’t able to write a special Thanksgiving one. So much to be thankful for and I’ll have to write all about that on another day. The truth is we have been so so busy! Starting with the marathon madness, then a few days in Florida, followed by Thanksgiving which put us back in Florida, then I got sick sick sick with a bug 😦 and well then of course there is me making a baby and what not. 😉 Yes you read that write and maybe for the first time. I’m pregnant! Due July 4th and we could not be more ecstatic. Some of you may be wondering, “What does this mean for the adoption?” Well it really doesn’t change anything. We are still saving, I’m still crocheting, and we will continue to be open and available to His plan. I mean it is all HIS plan anyway. The miracle of another pregnancy is just now part of it. We knew we weren’t done having children of our own and yet the order of it all was uncertain. Well, it’s pretty certain now that a baby is definitely coming!
I really shouldn’t struggle now with topics for postings right?! This pregnancy is so exciting for us because NOW the girls are both at ages where they actually (somewhat) understand. Ryann’s favorite thing to ask me every day… “Is the baby still in your tummy?” and “When is it done?” The other night we were watching The Santa Clause 3 and Mrs. Clause was expecting and the girls could not believe that my belly would ever be that big. Oh this is gonna be great! It also has brought some other questions up that I’m totally not ready for like “How did the baby get there?” To which Jason started to reply “Daddy put it there!” I immediately began talking OVER that response giving Jason the “Let’s not go there yet…” look. Oh boy! hahaha.
I have forgotten so much about being pregnant. Or maybe I started forgetting WHEN I got pregnant. I seriously can’t remember the simplest things. Like how many scoops of sugar I put in my coffee that I drink EVERY morning. Who forgets that? Something I just recently noticed…. I forgot to put our names, first and last, on our Christmas cards. People are going to get them and be like “Who the heck are these people?” or at the least “That’s Jason and Katie but I can’t remember their girls names!” Whoops! Sorry! Better luck next year when I’ll have to introduce the newbie 🙂
Outside of the bug (which took a week of my life!) I have been feeling great. Thankfully this is normal for me when I’m pregnant. And yes I am craving a few things. Salty and tart stuff. A few nights ago I proceeded to eat an entire lemon in one sitting, totally grossed Jason out, no idea why. Along with a bag of salt and vinegar chips. My mouth is watering at this very moment. Hopefully I’ll still have some enamel on my teeth when baby comes.
So much to catch up on in blog world like the new scarf I made and pictures of the girls. I will get to it all in time. For now, though, I pray every one is blessing and being blessed through out this wonderful season. Counting down to Jesus Birthday!
