well. it seems life has been crazy busy. not just because i *am pregnant* but it just is a busy time of year, wouldn't you agree?
thanks for all your well wishes and kind words. in general, i know we are a teeny bit crazy for embarking on this journey, but i just didn't have a done*peaceful*good feeling about scheduling a tubal...so we went another route. and we are so glad we did. we are very excited, as are the kids...kaden is really routing for a brother, well...and campbell too...
this will be the first baby where i hopefully won't have 2 in diapers. i can't quite imagine it. calli will be almost 3 and kaden will be almost 8. wow. it makes me excited to think about it. crazy, i know. but excited. i just.love.babies. that's all. i can't wait to hold the little peanut...and meg's too. double the pleasure. :)
i must say this is the first time i have gotton some not so excited responses.
like people trying to fake some enthusiasm for you. i can usually catch that.
i would like to know what makes
people think they know what's best for you and your family? do you know? they think what worked for them, must be the best for us...it baffles me...and quite frankly hurt my feelings, but i am trying hard to get over it. i hope i never make people feel like my way is the best way, because quite frankly it is a horrible way to make people feel. i am so.sorry. if i have done that to you out there reading this. we are just trying to do the best we can. sure we disagree here and there, but that's life. and totally fine. i never want to push my agenda on people. but go ahead...why don't we all have 5 kids and start ticking people off. ;) i am kidding people, kidding. but still a little bit hurt, can you tell? i am working thru it. i am.
honestly...most of you have been so so excited for us. thank you.
oh yeah...and i have been feeling great. the last 2 weeks i had been feeling crazy tired. but really...i can deal. nothing feels better than stealing a little nap on the floor by the cozy fire. my favorite spot. this week is much better...and i can't be too lazy...like my sister actually has to go out of the house to a real job...if she has too, then i better do my best to keep up. i will be the way fatter one though, just for the record. she looks fab carrying babes. not so much for me. :)
so...i hosted a dinner party for our friend nik. no kids. (we can still do that, because we still only have 4 ;)...i think there is an unwritten rule about that. ;) )everyone brought something fabulous to eat. and i can say that bucco de beppo's has nothing on my girls. nothing. we ate very well. ;) anyway, it was fun to relax and catch up. sort of a last hurrah before nik heads out for 5 months to the dominican for some mission work and to engulf in their lifestyle. she is so good at that... we will miss her. much. but...the good news is that she'll be back in time to see me fat and maybe deliver my babe. :)
