So most of you have probably heard from my announcement on Facebook that we are expecting baby #3!!
This was a bit of a surprise, but we are very excited and looking forward to all the adventures that lie ahead. I am due at the very end of September and will have an exact date after an ultrasound next week. I’ve been feeling great, which has been a blessing with all of my pregnancies, aside from an insanely insatiable hunger that will strike at any given moment…
Such as at 10 pm the other night when I leapt out of bed and dashed to the kitchen, convinced that if I did not immediately consume the leftover piece of cheese pizza in the fridge, I would absolutely perish from starvation on the spot.
Yeah, sadly, it works like that for pretty much the entire 9 months! Makes for a lot of extra work on my part when trying to lose those baby pounds! Thankfully, the doc says I can keep running, so I’ve been hitting the treadmill every other day and having some of the best runs I’ve had in a long while.
The kids are VERY excited – albeit a bit confused as to exactly where I’m hiding this baby – and have already decided on what it will be called. Seamus says that if it is a girl, her name will be Ella, and a boy will be Prince Charmont. (He’s currently fixated on the movie Ella Enchanted.) Grace is favoring Jasmine or Aladdin, which has already led to a few arguments between the two of them, causing Seamus to say, “Well, we will just have to have TWO babies – one for me and one for you.”
Bahahahaha. Dream on, kiddos!!
Thank you all for the well wishes – we look forward to sharing this adventure with you!
