An Explained Absence

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I've been a bit scarce around the blog world lately. There are several good reasons for it- I've been super busy, my laptop bit the dust, I haven't been feeling well, we went on vacation...

In fact, here's a picture from Kauai (Yes, one day I'll post more. See: Laptop bit the dust.)


 
Wanna know the REAL reason I've been gone?

Look at the picture again.

It's ok, you can ask.

I've been secretly growing a whole new PERSON. Amazing, isn't it?  I got to see the tiny little baby this morning, including it's tiny little heartbeat. I'm at 12 weeks, which means I have a REALLY LONG WAYS TO GO, and I fully expect another few weeks of misery before I feel like myself again, but I couldn't wait any longer to spill the beans.

We're really excited about it and the Pirate is over the moon. The Bug has no clue and I fully expect his world to fall apart come September.  It ought to be interesting!

One thing though, what do you do when the kids outnumber the parents??

  5. Congratulations!!! What do you do when the kids outnumber the parents? Drink a lot. ;-) No, I'm just kidding. I actually gave up drinking because I have to stay on my toes at all times now or they gang up on us. ::grin::

  6. Congrats! It seems there's lots of baby happenings out there with blog buddies these days! As for the being out numbered thing... some how it all works out.

  7. I am so excited for you!!! Congratulations! I'm still trying to figure out what to do now that I'm outnumbered. I think that it is a learning process ;) But for the record, I was really worried about how my daughter would react to the new baby but she is doing great with him. So maybe the Bug will adjust just as well.

  8. Yeah! Hope you feel better really soon. The Pirate is big enough that he will be great help! HUGS

  10. Congrats! I had my 3rd this summer. When my son started kindergarten in September it was really nice. ;-)

    Once you can handle going from 1 to 2, adding a 3rd is really not a problem. You're already scattered. :-) (We still want a 4th, so 3 isn't all that hard.)

    Good luck!! Yay!!!!

  13. Congratulations! Oh, the kids outnumbering the parents does make for a wild ride and yours are younger than my two older ones were when my daughter was born. Worse yet, they outnumber the hands you gave to grab them! Organization will be key!

  20. Yippee! And look at you looking all cute and pregnant. :)

    I know I owe you an email--had some unexpected houseguests this weekend (brother, brother-in-law, nephew) and it zapped all my energy--not to mention working Saturday morning where the Internet is inexplicably blocked!

    Hugs!!

    I'm sure the next several months will fly by! I only have two children, so I can't give you any advice about having more kids than adults in your family. All I can say is good luck! LOL. I'm sure you'll do fine. xoxo

  29. This is a great post. I just had one of the ‘Doh!’ moments and ran back to correct my own site before publishing my comment. You see my own comment form did not match what I’m about to advice. I get less comment than you, so never noticed any problem. I’ve changed it now anyway so here goes.

  31. !!! Congratulations!! I can't wait to see your progress and what the new little one looks like. And what his/her nickname will be. I'm sure Pirate and Bug will love the new addition.

  32. Congratulations!!! I'm very happy for you...

  33. !!!

    Holy smokes, congratulations!

    I've heard from parents of 3 kids that you enter a sort of a zen state when you hit 3. You don't have man-on-man defense anymore, but somehow you're okay with it. :)

    Now if I could just get up the guts to have #2...I think I'm too selfish with my time but I know I'll turn 50 or something and wish I had a 2nd. But I just can't convince myself to do it now...

  34. Oh my! Congratulations, how wonderful!!!! You look great. :)

  35. Thanks everyone! We're excited, but it is really cutting into my spare time! I can't wait to feel better.
