meanwhile, smoothies and ginger beer (very strong ginger ale) are my new best friends.
sounds familiar? are you picking up what i'm laying down? that's right! the bun is in the oven, folks. here's to a quiver full of arrows.
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warriors hands. -Psalm 127:3-4 (NLT)-God willing, our family of 5 will soon be a family of 6 (okay, i know some of you minivan sympathizers are going to really push this one on us now). little baby was an unexpected surprise for us, but certainly not unwelcomed. his (or her) grand entrance will be march 10, 2011. we're both excited, but i don't think it has really sunk in yet for the both of us (despite the loss of appetite, nausea and fatigue on my part), even though we had our first midwife appointment yesterday. i think full-blown excitement will really hit us when i actually start showing, and we are safely past the 1st trimester.
and now if you'll excuse me, i'm going to try and choke something down and look for some more ginger ale.
