Big news!

I have been absent from blogging,
 pretty much since I went back to work full time,
but lately I have had  good reason...

Here she is. Meet our little snowman.
I'm 11 weeks pregnant!
I'm due on June 23.
Of course, we are thrilled over here.
 Excited beyond words.
Um, let me rephrase, Darryl & I are thrilled.
Jack is not.
Jack totally gets it, and he wants no part of it.
This is his typical reaction....

He's so sincere.
It's really hard not to laugh.
Things are going to change around here...

I am asleep by 7:00 pm just about every single night.
Hopefully I will get some energy back in my 2nd trimester.


  1. okay, Jack is soooo precious.

  9. YAY! YAY! YAY!!! Congratulations!!! And that Jack video is sooooo adorable. My daughter Harper wants nothing to do with the idea of another child around here. When we ask her if she wants a brother or sister, she says, "No, I want a Harper." Serious as can be. BIG HUGS to get you through all the first trimester "fun"!!!

  10. Erin....yeah yeah yeah so glad you posted the big news.
