Expecting...

Was that obvious enough? I really have been meaning to update my blog. The sickness and exhaustion from pregnancy kept me from it. I am starting to feel better, just pretty tired. I'm due on August 3rd and my first appointment is next week. We are both really excited to be adding another little one to our family. I try to forget that I'm pregnant so that it goes faster. I get too anxious/excited if I think about it too much.

I knew I was pregnant and Eric was in denial. I kept telling him that I felt pregnant and he said, "you're not pregnant". When I took the test I showed him and said, "you're right" and he glanced at it and said, "yeah, that's what I thought". It took three times of telling him he was "right" while I had the positive pregnancy test in front of him until he got it. It's true, I was tricking him, but he didn't really look at the test. Once he got it, he said with a deep breath, "oh...(another deep deep breath)...oh...I think I need to sit down." And he sat down. I was laughing while he was in deep thought. I had already been prepared because I knew I was pregnant. He really didn't think I was. And yes, he is happy about it. He just didn't think it would happen so fast.

Eric has been both mom and dad for the last month. He has been so helpful! He gets up with the kids every morning so that I can sleep and it has made a huge difference in how I feel. During the holidays when I was sooo sick and had such little energy, Eric did everything. I just looked at him with an "I'm sorry, I wish I felt better and could do more" face. I felt quite pathetic, but Eric has been a champ. The kids are excited and Talon gets it more than Tyler. Tyler has denied it at times. Preparing food has made me feel the worst and most sick, so Eric has prepared it or we've had easy, frozen Costco foods. One night Talon said, "oh, I know what we're having for dinner...freezer stuff." That's right, you lucky duck, mozzarella sticks, pizza, chicken nuggets...whatever you like.

Well then, there it is. Updates to follow.

yahoo. Audrey is keeping her fingers crossed for a girlie. She needs a cousin she can play barbies with. So, while he or she is baking in there I say you should kick up your feet and enjoy the break. You deserve it, baby growing is exhausting.

I just wanted to let you know that we have new lessons posted on the Family Home Evening blog.

I know you've visited it before, but I got so swamped with starting an online business, I couldn't keep up with the posts.

We have some new contributors who are adding lessons often.

Hopefully, that'll help take some lesson planning stress off while you're getting over pregnancy sickness.
