And in other news . . .

I think everyone knows already PLUS I'm not doing very good at keeping a separate journal from my blogging so I might as well say it.

Chopper and I are pregnant!
Ok, well I am anyway.

I had to go back and put an exclamation point on that.  Actually I am excited but it's a little dampened right now by a few factors:
1.  I'm only 6 weeks and I'm already exhausted and nauseous.
2.  Now that Megan's almost four and Abby almost two I have a better understanding of what having children means -- especially multiple children.  Because even when pregnant with Abby, Megan was young enough to not really get it . . . yet.

So I'm excited but also apprehensive about the additional responsibility and work.  But I know there will be additional joy.  I'm already looking forward to seeing how different # 3 will be.  I was looking at Megan the other day when she was laying next to me in bed (I can't get up to save my life these days) and thought about how beautiful she is and how individual.  Abby too.  So the thought of a third one is really fun.

And the outpouring of love and support from my friends here has been incredible -- offers to take the girls so I can get some rest and one friend just brought me a lasagna so I don't have to cook tonight!  I have wonderful wonderful friends!!!

So that's the big news.  Stay tuned because more will surely follow!

The wonderful wonderful thing is that you have 8 more months to get ready. . . and for your girls to grow up a little more. You are a great mom and I hope you start feeling better soon!
