Some of you may have noticed I've been a little absent lately. There's a very good reason why, and I'm so excited to finally be able to share the news with you.
For the past 5 months, life as I know it has gone through some major changes....
Our little girl is expected to arrive in June, and Jesse and I couldn't be more excited about this new chapter in our lives.
My apologies for the selfie. It took me a loooong time to grow even the tiniest of bumps, and it's a nice feeling to finally have some visible proof that there's a tiny person in there. :)
Just to keep it real, this pregnancy has been rough on me. I've struggled with all day morning sickness up until about week 15, and there were months at a time when showering and putting on sweatpants seemed like a major accomplishment. But, I've come to accept my limitations and just be grateful that my body is doing what it needs to do, even if it means I have to feel awful all of the time. I know it will be so worth it in the end.
So, rest assured....even if I have to occasionally take a little time off to hibernate in sweatpants, I'll always be back eventually.
I'm sending you guys all my love and gratitude for your sweet emails over the past few months. Quite a few of you were able to pick up on the fact that I wasn't feeling all that great. So, not only does that surprise me (because you guys were totally able to pick up what I was trying so hard NOT to put down) but it also totally humbles me to know that you care about my little life. Thank you.
Also, before I go, Tootie would like to let you know that she is just overjoyed about all of this exciting news.
You can just see it in her eyes.
I took that instagram pic over a month ago, and thought it was pretty funny that the Christmas tree was still up. Well, it's STILL up and it's getting funnier/more worrisome to outsiders by the day.
I'm hoping to take it down before my due date in June.
I'm a man with a plan.
That's all for today! 'Til next time!
