Nausea? Check. Fatigue? Check.

Fat tummy and POSITIVE test? Check.

Yahoo!!!

I am pretty sure you get it now, but I will say it anyway.... I am pregnant!!
Baby number three is expected to arrive on July 20th. Bryce and I are thrilled. Isaac really doesn't get it, but I am sure he will when I get really big:).

We decided to wait until Christmas to share the news with the family. I bought Isaac a shirt that said "I am the big brother". We arrived in Sacramento on Christmas day to find my nephew Logan wearing a very similar shirt! Haha! My sister in law Brandy is expecting too and had the same idea.

This was a really good way to end what has been a really rough year and start new again for 2009. We really have been so blessed and it has been amazing to see our family grow. Without Maeve, a little piece our our family is always missing, but we have been so incredibly fortunate to have Isaac. I didn't know how I could ever love another child as much as my daughter and Isaac answered that. He brings us so much joy each day and keeps me going. I can't wait to meet our new baby and share this life and our love with him or her.

So, belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Rachel said...

Congratulations, Erin! That is too funny that we are always pregnant at the same time! How are you holding up taking care of the toddler while feeling yucky all the time? I have pretty much have just felt like a bad mom for the past couple of months....

And for some reason being pregnant has brought on like a second grieving for me. Being pregnant brings back lots of memories for me that I haven't thought about in a while. How about you? Are you holding up okay???

I hope you are doing well, and that all goes well for you and you family! It's exciting to be pregnant!

Congratulations!!! How exciting!! So, I have been a blogging loser, but have a new blog, and I hope you'll stop by for a visit! http://www.bkathy.blogspot.com/

Yeah! You should try the nose waxing! If you do, let me know how it goes! I don't sneeze more or less, but it does seem to run faster. I know that sounds gross and probably tmi. Tell Bryce only real men manscape. :) (Ryan refuses to wax his nose).

So excited to see updates on your pregnancy!

Kathy said...

Hi again Erin! Thanks for checking out the new blog. Absolutely, you must join us for lunch! Please email me at kbenson0803@gmail.com so we can coordinate. I miss you too! Can't wait to hear ALL the details of your baby news!

Kathy said...

Ha, ha - no dog-insulting. I've been playing with the HTML code, so I sent myself, and made my daughter send test comments. Now THAT is too much time on my hands!

Ryan & Tiffany said...

So do you save all that money by using Geico?

Kristina P. said...

First, congrats on your pregnancy!

And second, thanks for the comments on my blog! I would have been here sooner, but I have another Erin who comments, and I just assumed your comments were hers, until you both commented today, back to back.

I will return!

Misti said...
