Days turned to weeks, turned to months, turned to many months. I wish I could say that I was travelling the world, or we were in the middle of building a house, or that we had a baby. But the reality is that the furthest I've traveled in the last eight months was to Provo, Utah (the least exotic place I know), the biggest home project we have done was to install a new sink in the kitchen (which I did not help with at all, and actually took the girls on a picnic so that Scott could work), and finally--we are still a family of four...
Picture taken in August of last year--but I think we all basically look the same. Well, except me. That is where our "family of four" will be changing. I'm officially one trimester down, and baby #3 is due in September. I am one of those lucky women that gains weight as soon as she gets pregnant, breaks out in the worst case of acne, and is sick for 9 months. Is it any wonder that it's been three years since I signed up for this?
We told the girls on Monday: we combined it with Family Home Evening, and had a little lesson on families. We're still not sure if they understand the concept, because even after we explained that the baby will be a part of our family, Noel's one question was "How Long?" We told her the baby was due in September, to which she said, "No--how long will the baby stay with us?" According to her, a rent-a-baby situation would be ideal. Juliet doesn't believe there is a baby in my tummy, since she can't see it. She just thinks I'm getting really chubby. Isn't that nice? They are both relieved that the reason I am sick is for the baby; however, the concern is now entirely for the baby. If I throw up--no big deal, just as long as the baby in my tummy is doing just fine.
So...there is the update on our life. Hope this update was somewhat worth waiting for:-)
