My New Excuse for Everything


So Announcement! I am pregnant! Not THAT pregnant. And when I am as big as her I won't be as artsy as this lady to get this pose.

I am 11 weeks along. Due April 11th. Don't know the sex yet but had my first ultra sound to see the heart and the alien inside of me. I am one of the LUCKY who didn't get very sick. I just had a couple weeks of wipeout! Where you feel like the train hit ya. After that I felt great.

The last two weeks have been fabulous! I feel like me again. Don't tell anyone cause its a great way to get out of...just about anything. For example..."Why haven't you updated your blog?"..."Oh, I've been feeling kinda sick, you know, the critter growing inside of me." The possibilities are endless as to what you can get out of.

Even Rusty has enjoyed using this unborn child to get out of a thing or two. Mostly he has been enjoying the snacks I bring to church. It seems as though he enjoys church a lot more. Should have thought of that sooner.

You must have a little boy, because our little guys can be best buds. I am sure that no matter what you have, our kids will love each other.

You are so lucky that you haven't felt the morning sickness, it is no fun. You'll have to post a pic of your ultrasound. I'm sad that I won't be here when you have him/her, I'm going to be in Utah from Dec thru the end of April.

HAPPY DAY!! And happy 9 months! I hope you have a little girl - they are the best! (OK, I'm a little biased. . .) So glad you're not sicky, I wasn't either and it was such a blessing since I was teaching. Isn't it amazing to think of a little person inside of you? And kind of creepy...
