I know, I know! It's been awhile! I could think of a million excuses as to why I have failed keeping up to date with my blogging, such as our camera broke in California- and what is a blog without pictures?...or that I've been too busy working and taking care of a little stinker to think about blogging...but that's what those all are...EXCUSES! The real reason is that all my extra time has either been spent sleeping or staring at the bottom of the toilet! Sound like fun? NO! Yes, the rumor is true. We are expecting our second child. And I can officially tell you that I am excited. For those who have known since the beginning, that's huge for me. This pregnancy was nonetheless, an "accident". As Erik says, He tripped, fell over, and wha-la, his wife is pregnant. :) I was really sick at the beginning and so with not being mentally prepared to be pregnant, not exactly wanting to throw-up 2 or 3 times a day, and self-ish maybe, but not looking forward to the instant weight gain...I was having a hard time being excited about having another child. But now that I'm about 18 weeks and feeling much better, I'm very excited. I have this feeling that 9 months is going to be WAY too long though, I'm already getting uncomfortable. YUCK!

This is the first ultrasound of our little baby. It was taken at about 13 weeks. It's still amazing to me how soon they look like little babies. That little stinker's no bigger than a peanut there, yet you can tell exactly what it is. Simply a work of art! We find out in a couple of weeks what we're having. To be honest, I think we're both hoping for a boy, just so we know we have one of each..but we'll love it no matter what.

Two of my sister-in-laws on Erik's side both pregnant also, so that will be really fun to have three little cousins all the same age. Kristeen is due about three weeks before me in March, and then Gretchen is due in June. I'm sure all the guys are going to get so sick of us when we're all together cause all we talk about is pregnant junk. Sorry!

Congrats! I can somewhat biggest fear is accidentally getting pregnant before I'm ready for another. I'm excited for you though!
