Adeline has an announcement that she’s very excited to share with you:
That’s right! She’s going to be a big sister!
Can I just say, I am so freaking excited to finally make this announcement! I’ve been dying to complain about “morning” (all day) sickness and extreme fatigue and every other pregnancy complaint. I’ve also wished that I could talk about my excitement over having a tiny, adorable little baby again. And also my fear that this baby will be just as colicky and fussy as Addie and I won’t sleep for six months. And the fact that I’m already wearing maternity jeans (WTF?).
I’ll be 12 weeks tomorrow, so it’s officially that time: the risk of miscarriage is practically zero and it’s “safe” to tell everyone. I’ve always thought that whole idea was kind of ridiculous, because I’m pretty sure if something did go wrong I’d want to talk to people about it. But whatever. We had our first ultrasound yesterday and saw the baby: it was moving around like crazy and it’s heartbeat was so fast and strong. I cried.
Because good lord, I’m crying all the time. You know that VW commercial with everyone laughing? I love it. And it makes me cry giant, raindrop-sized tears every time. Sometimes when Addie’s watching dinosaur train and there’s a particularly sweet moment between the mom and her kids I find myself on the verge of crying. Seriously. Pregnancy hormones in full effect.
I have about a million other things to say about this whole pregnancy thing, but I’m going to leave it at that for now.
We are so excited and I can’t believe I still have to wait over six months to meet this little one. Tiny baby toes. I can’t wait! If this baby is anywhere even close to as adorable and amazing as Adeline, we’re in for the ride of our lives.
