So I have been thinking about writing this post for weeks, and to be honest, the longer that I put it off the easier that it was. I probably could have waited a WHOLE lot longer, truthfully. But, alas, after a friend kept asking, I decided I would go for it. SO......the news is, I have a new calling! I am now the nursery leader of our ward. I am actually really excited about it. I have spent a lot of time in nursery lately and I kind of miss it from when I was in the Primary (or Nursery) Presidency in our married ward. I am excited to get working on my calling!
That is SO not the news.
But you know how fall comes and suddenly none of your clothes fit anymore! Its like hello, what happened? I guess it is from all of that comfort food we start eating and the holidays coming up. Thank goodness that we are covered up in layers for fall and winter! But, really I am pretty sure that my clothes aren't fitting for an entirely different reason.
Yep, that's right.
(I am sure many of you have already found out by other means.)
16 weeks along to be exact, and just as sick as I was at 6 weeks, bummer.
So although I have been slowly growing out of my clothes, I haven't gained any weight, well a tiny bit, less than a pound. And to be honest, I am kind of ready to not be sick anymore, I really shouldn't complain, many friends have it a lot worse than I do. But, I gotta say, although I was sicker with Gavin, it is a totally different story when I have a two year old to take care of. It is a good thing that he plays on his own fairly well. I basically only got up to get him more juice or something to eat. He has been quite patient with me actually. And whenever he finds me in the bathroom...throwing up, he always asks if I am ok. Such a sweet boy. And of course Zac has been great too, he does wonders with Gavin and is basically a solo parent when he comes home from work because I am too sick or exhausted.
We are REALLY excited to have another baby! And I am really glad that Gavin will be almost 2 1/2 when the baby arrives. He will such a great big brother and helper. He knows that there is a baby in my tummy, but he doesn't really get what that means. He still jumps on me and kicks me a lot, but I am sure that as I continue to grow that he will start to understand.
Zac is probably one of the most excited, he actually gets really angry with me that I don't want to 'announce' it sooner. Because of course he told everyone he works with like 10 weeks ago. :)
I have my reasons for not telling, probably none of them are valid to anyone but me, so we will just leave it at that. :) I am due around April 15th, AND we find out on Nov. 15th what we are having. Only two weeks to wait, and I am really excited to know if it's a boy or girl. So start your guessing!
