Surprise II

I bet you guys all thought that we were done having kids.


Yes, we are expecting another baby the end of December.

I do love me a baby, but I DO NOT love me a pregnancy. Because of that I thought I should explain a few changes to the blog.

First off, you do not have to worry that I'll be posting weekly pictures of my belly because:
  • I have never done that before.
  • I am not a cute pregnant woman. (I gained about 65 lbs with Penelope.)
  • I will be doing my best to ignore the pregnancy, and will probably hardly mention it at all.
Secondly, my house posts will be inconsistent.

I love watching a good "before & after" unravel as much as the next person, and I wish that I had some progress to show you (and me!) everyday, but that's just not possible right now.

I've had enough pregnancies under my belt to know that some weeks I will be a woman on fire, meeting everyone's needs, keeping the house clean, and working on my projects. And some weeks I will be incapable of doing anything other than lie on the couch, blow a few kisses and read.

My house posts will almost certainly reflect that, and in fact, already have :(.

Thirdly, I won't be finding people to do guest posts for awhile.

I really liked the guest posts, but they have become that little extra stress that I would rather not deal with right now.


Sometimes I wish babies came for free, but they don't (and if I'm being honest, that's probably a good thing).

The next six months will be a little slow for me, but the reality is: at the end of it, I'll have forgotten everything I hated, and I'll have another sweet baby to make me laugh, make me cry and make me love.

Wish me luck!
