Things are Changing Around Here…

Ok, don’t freak out!
Things aren’t changing here on the blog, well at least that’s the plan for now. 
But things are definitely changing for our little family! 
And before you ask- NO we are not moving, again! lol Not yet at least!
We are pretty excited for this change.
It was a bit of a surprise but we got used to the idea pretty fast. 
Want to know what this change is? 
Miss P will help me tell ya.
Yep! That’s right! 
I am definitely changing by growing another big ole belly with another Baby M in there!
Like I said, we were a little surprised seeing that it took us almost 3 yrs to get pregnant with Miss P but we are excited! 
We bought Miss P this cute Big Sis shirt so she could wear it when we told our families. 
I turned 8 wks right before Easter so on Easter Sunday we Skyped with our families and had P wearing the shirt to tell them.
Everyone was definitely very excited about our news. 
We had our first ultrasound on the 11th and got to see a healthy baby growing right on track! 
Due November 7th, Travis’ birthday. 
This first ultrasound is always good for peace of mind knowing that everything is good and something actually IS in there! lol
I decided to go ahead and share the news on FB to tell our family and friends after we had the ultrasound even though I am only 10 1/2 weeks. 
I got this idea from Christina from Christina’s Adventures and borrowed/copied it. 
I put it up as my cover photo and didn’t say anything else and just waited to see who would notice it. 
Well, it didn’t take long for people to notice it! lol 
I will be 11 weeks on Thursday and I am definitely ready for this first trimester to come to an end. 
I am having morning sickness and have been sick but NOTHING like I was with Miss P. 
I couldn’t function with P and lost a ton of weight and luckily that hasn’t happened this time.
I have had some really bad days where I literally have to block P in the family room area with her play pen and lay on the couch all day watching her but those days are slowly going away. 
My days are slowly getting better and my evenings are getting worse, much like what happened with P around this time. 
So if you have been wondering why I have so sporadic posting on the blog the last few weeks, well, here’s your answer! I’ve been not feeling well enough to craft, much less sit on the computer typing up posts. 
So like I said, things aren’t changing here on the blog.
That is the plan for now. But once the second baby arrives, I will definitely be taking some time off again and I can’t make any promises for when I return just yet.
And until then, expect my weekly update posts like I did with Miss P! 
I will share an update on the past weeks once I get back from SNAP. 🙂
