Our blended family is going to get a bit bigger.
Remember how I mentioned that I was recovering from mono and taking some time to rest? Well, I went straight from mono to morning sickness. Consequently, productivity has not been at an all-time high around here. Throw in a couple of hurricanes to monitor, a broken HVAC—if you’re a homeowner anywhere in the south and you have a unit that runs on R-22 start saving for a replacement today—, work travel, and other adventures of adulthood and time has flown.
So, here we are and it’s already November. I’m feeling much, much better and this morning we had the big 20-week ultrasound and ::drumroll please:: we are having a baby.
Even if I had wanted to know what we were having, and I didn’t, the baby was having none of it. Everyone will just have to wait until March to find out. Ellie, the only girl, is campaigning hard for a sister, but she thinks she can deal with another boy if she has to. The boys don’t care one way or the other as long as they don’t have to share a room or change a diaper.
Things have changed a bit in the last ten years, the list of things you aren’t allowed to have has gotten much longer, but other than that it all feels pretty familiar.
Don’t worry, we won’t be talking all baby all the time, but we also won’t be doing Countdown to Turkey Day this year. Our own plans for the holiday aren’t set and may just be a quiet staycation. Time will tell. We are considering relocating within the school district, in the spring so there may be some posts about getting ready to sell a home or the process of buying a home.
I hope all of you are well and I’d like to hear any good news you have to share.
