It's True.

Yes, it's true.  The floating baby isn't just a joke, it is actually real.  The due date is Sept. 20 for all you people still wondering.   This pregnancy has been filled with many fun adventures, and I am trying to enjoy every bit of it since I am planning to have it be our last.  Bj has proven himself to be a saint.  He has happily been the shopper, the cook, the cleaner, the back rubber, and whatever else I need for him to be.  I have felt VERY sick this time around, and Bj has done more than his share of the load, and he has done it with a smile on his face.  Seriously, what a complete Prince! Many have asked about my migraines during the pregnancy, and to answer that, I have only had 3-4, and luckily I have found a secret way of getting rid of them without Excedrin.

I have to apologize to any and all friends I have neglected in the past few months.  I have been slightly preoccupied with getting through each day being a moderately good mother and wife, that's about all I have accomplished.  So, I hope you all know I love you to pieces.

We are excited for this baby to come to our family, the kids happily pray each night for him/her to be healthy and strong.  Madeline is excited to have the baby share her room with her (she feels like she is the only one mature enough to have this big responsibility).  I am anxious to find out the sex of the baby, I don't love surprises.  Boy or Girl will be great, but if we happen to even it out, I wouldn't be sad.  Oh, and names????  We have no idea, so if you have a great name you just won't be using, send it on my way.

Thanks to you all for your comments, emails, and well wishes.  We are very excited to grow our little family to a respectable number (6 really is better than 5).

I am so so happy for you. Congratulations. I have tons of names I love so when you find out I will have to email them to you. I hope you feel better soon!

I'm so excited for you, and even more that it's not me :). And yes, I forgive you for not calling you back (even though it took me a few days to call me back). Luckily I re-married so now your new addition won't ruin my life by making the grandchildren count 13. I can totally do 15. Love you!

Megan said...

Oh yes, and here are a few ideas for names:

Abeus
Dartania
Oleo
Irelynd
Atticus

There are just a few gems. Good luck!

So exciting! I was wondering, but then thought I missed something very important on your blog. I really love the name Levi for a boy. I want someone to use it since Cale has bad name association with it. I think the name Tilly is really cute for a girl (short for Matilda). That's all I have.

Yea! You are good at hiding things because I had NO idea! But I am so happy for you and pray that the yucky sickness will ease up soon. Let me know if we can take Lizzie some day if you need some good private barfing time! Much love! So, now I am guessing where you might have gone for your "sudden" appointment the other week. You are too sneaky....

How exciting for you and your family. I really wondered the other day if I had just missed something in earlier blogs about a baby. Hang in there through the sickness. I'm excited to hear what it will be.

The other day I was with M. Chandler and his wife (a college roommie of mine) and we were remembering how great you were/are! It is fun to see what a cute family you have! Take care.

What great news for your family. Sorry to hear that you are so sick. I was terrible with the twins and realized how much harder it is to be sick when you have other kids at home. Good luck with that...but it sounds like BJ is a saint. We already knew that though, right? If your insurance will cover it, Zofran is a great drug for the sickness. It only works 6-8 hours and it is expensive, but it actually works. Maybe worth looking into. I hope it is a healthy pregnancy and we will look forward to hearing the gender. I'm not great at names either, so good luck! Take care.

Sarahfina, I am so sorry you are not feeling well and I hope the sickness goes away soon. It was fun having Lizzie over and we will have her over again soon. I will make you dinner whenever BJ needs a break! I can't wait to find out what you're having. I have decided on a girl's name for you. I love either Sophia or Sophie. Both your girls have such beautiful names, it needs to be a beautiful name. I'll have to keep thinking for a boy name. Talk to you soon.

Congrats, Sarah! You're right--everyone is on blog break all at once, don't you think?
