An Explanation

First, I need to nominate myself for lame blogger of the year award. Unfortunately, I do about as well writing in my journal as I do updating my blog. But there is an explanation ....
We are expecting a baby! I've been miserably sick for weeks and weeks. Maybe months ... I've lost track. Maybe I never really felt well. I can't remember. It's all a blur. But my mind tells me that I'm only 11 weeks along so I really couldn't have been sick for most of my life, like it feels. We are all really excited! I'm due April 7, which seems like a really long ways away. But we have a lot of getting ready to do. We're going to bunk the baby in with Kate, so we need to get their room ready. We will need to get a bigger car ... and, the baby is the size of a fig right now, so I guess it needs to do a little bit more growing.
Kate talks about the new baby every day and Hayden is really wishing for a boy and not "another boring girl".
So, I've been lame at blogging, but at least I have a good excuse.

CONGRATS! I am so excited for you guys. I totally empathize with the sick part but good news is you should start feeling better soon. Did you get any drugs? They have been the only way I've been able to do this 6 times. Hope you feel better soon.

Hayden knows not what he speaks of when he talks of boring girls...just tell him to give it a little time. Nevertheless, that's exciting! I'd bunk the baby with Hayden so he can help her (and you) out on occasion...I love Eliza being with Lillie and Holly!
