See these two great big cheesy grins?
They're grinning because they've been keeping a secret from you.
Actually, to tell the truth, I've been keeping the secret. They just found out about it a few days ago, which is why they're smiling so big.
See that little guy in the doll stroller? He's going to be a big brother.
Princess is determined that it's going to be a baby sister because according to her, "girl babies are better." Little Man really doesn't get what's going on yet, but I think he'll catch on eventually. Probably around the same time the baby gets here.
Speaking of which, I'm due September 16th. In our extended families, we have 5 birthdays and 3 anniversaries in September, most of which are right around my due date. Should be interesting to see if this baby picks one of those days for his or her birthday or prefers his or her very own birthday.
I have been feeling...awful. Very tired, very nauseous (Morning sickness is a myth! Call it what it is: All-day sickness!), very cranky, very happy, very scared, very everything. I've had to cut down on the numbers of orders I take for the boutique because I barely have the energy to take care of the kids, let alone do anything extra. Besides, every time I move around, I get more nauseous.
My 10 week checkup was a few days ago and, although the doctor thought it would be too early, she still found the baby's heartbeat within only a few seconds! Exciting stuff!
