It's A.....


We're all SO excited. I can't believe my pregnancy is half-over. I'm officially twenty weeks now, and I've been so busy with the other two kids, my work and life in general, that I haven't really had time to think about being pregnant.

The only reminder of my pregnancy is that I'm constantly tugging at my pants. It's a really annoying problem. Whether I'm wearing maternity pants or regular pants, the only direction they want to move is down. Probably has something to do with the basketball-shaped bulge resting on them. So I pretty much give up the tug-of-war around 4 every afternoon and put on my sweats. The only pants that don't give me troubles are my Splendid leggings. Love them. I'll formally introduce you to them next month.

I had my suspicions early on that I was having a boy. Headaches, bad skin, and heartburn have been my constant companions these last five months. I didn't have those symptoms during my pregnancy with Charlotte, but I did with Hudson. Although, I guessed wrong both times before, so I kind of psyched myself out at that last minute and convinced myself it was a girl. So I was still surprised to hear the news. Needless to say, I think a little boy will be the perfect addition to this family.

A couple notes:
*A HUGE thank you to Ashley for her beautiful work. And for fitting me into your busy schedule. And for being my friend. xo.

Congratulations - I have two boys and a girl and its wonderful. Charlotte will be so lucky to have those boys looking out for her and they will be equally lucky to have a sister who will bring so much joy and fun to their lives. This news just makes me smile.

Awww, congratulations!! I came across your blog through craftgawker (loving the yarn covered letter). I noticed your from the Bay Area and got excited to find a fellow blogger. I'm also pregnant, just a few weeks ahead of you. I've kept the baby's gender a surprise though there are times I'm dying to know. I currently have two little girls.

Anyways, so glad I stumbled across your blog. Loving all that I've seen.
