the big news {life in general}

January 20, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday.  I am going to cut right to the chase here, since I have been waiting and waiting.

I finally am sharing some big news today…well, big for us anyway. It goes a little something like this:


That’s right.  Oh.  Baby.

Once upon a time, after two kids, I decided I am DONE with pregnancy, DONE with having more kids, DONE with maternity clothes and baby gear.  Then I changed my mind.  And now…we are excepting our third!

Now I am officially in the last week in my first trimester, and I am not going to lie…it has been absolutely miserable.  The nausea and fatigue have been no joke this time around and I have been doing my best to get through it by the skin of my teeth.  (Notice maybe not so many posts each week?)  I am slowly starting to get back to feeling like a functioning human being, with some dips here and there.  The good news is I can feel the change coming.  The nesting will commence and I will be like a crazy lady!

There you have it!  We are in an exciting time here, although I am still a little bit in shock that I am actually going to have a third!  I never thought I would (chose to) be in this spot again but will be thrilled when we get to welcome a new little person, another personality, another spirit, to our family.  Moira and Ronan are very excited and each are praying for the opposite of what they already have…Moira wants a sister, Ronan wants a brother.  I keep trying to tell them we have no control over that, but they insist.


I am sure you will find some baby inspiration up here over the next couple of months along with my usual inspiration for celebration!  I thank you ahead of time for being a part of such a special journey and can’t wait to share more!  Yours truly…
