Thanks for all of your kind words about our little announcement. We are super excited! (...After being super surprised, super shocked, and then super scared. Just keepin' it real.)
Baby Dark is due May 4th but is already making itself known even now via my expanding waistline.
I have so much to fill you in on from the last few months. Here are a few tidbits:
We found out that we're having a baby. Duh. Old news. But you know you want to watch the video again. Go ahead. You know you want to...
David and I celebrated our 32nd and 28th birthdays, respectively. I made David his traditional age-shaped pancakes to celebrate and on my birthday we spent the day with my family. (David also shaved his head for some sort of cross country team bet. The kids did it in the art room. Nice.)
My friend Sarah came to visit us for a few days and we had an amazing time. We went to see Wicked at the Fox together and "I have been chaaaaaaaanged for good." It was awesome.
Jack found out that we're having a baby and has starting acting out by chewing up all of our possessions that we hold most dear. Here's hoping that he'll come around to the idea.
I've have pondered how people with foreign accents can sing without any trace of said accent. Keith Urban, what gives?
David Dark has started riding his bicycle to school everyday. What could be cuter than a bow-tied commuter, I ask you!
Now, since the announcement of itty bitty Baby Dark, we've gotten a lot of questions. Here are the answers to the most common ones for you (and for me to remember all of the weirdo things that I've been doing.)
Have you been sick?
Yes, indeed. I was very sick for about 6 or 7 weeks. I felt really nauseous and tired. I almost tossed my cookies every time I brushed my teeth. I was begging David to go to bed at night and I'm usually a huge night owl. He would make me wait until it was at least 9 p.m. I'm 19 weeks now and feeling much better. Thanks for asking.
Are you going to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl?
Yeppers. We find out December 22nd.
Any weird food cravings?
Unfortunately, yes. The only things that baby wants to eat is pizza, fried chicken, and cheeseburgers. David is skeptical of the authenticity of the cravings and claims that those foods are what I would choose to eat normally, if I could have anything I wanted.
I don't care what he thinks as long as he orders my pizza.
Are there foods that you usually like that are grossing you out?
Sorry, chickens. It's nothing personal.
Do you have names picked out?
No, not really. I think we'll buckle down about a name when we find out if it's a boy or a girl. I kind of feel like I may need to see the baby before I name it...is that weird? I think our family is troubled by our nomenclature strategies.
Any nursery plans yet?
Not really. I'm really excited to get to work on it, though. You can check out my Baby Dark Pinboard and see what ideas I've been pinning!
Hopefully, I'll be a little better about updating the blog now. For the past few months looking at the computer has made me feel si-ick. Thankfully, I think I'm over the hump now.
Thanks again for being excited with us!
