Okay, it’s time to come clean. Here’s the real reason I’ve been lazy slacking off sleeping instead of blogging getting so behind around here.


I’m 8 weeks pregnant – due in early January. And this baby? Already TOTALLY different from Jonas – I’m pukey around the clock, eating like a horse, and exhausted beyond all reason. However, all those symptoms are reassuring that my hormones are working hard; and today’s ultrasound was wonderful confirmation that this is a healthy pregnancy – baby is measuring two days ahead, so growing well, and his/her heartbeat was thumping along at 167 bpm. All is well, praise the Lord.

Time for more ginger and crackers for me. I swear, I have great intentions of posting my updates, pictures, and video clips — but it will have to wait just a little bit longer.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for you, Chris and Jonas. I know Jonas will be a great big brother. I have been checking your page almost every day for updates. This update is spectacular. And just a little word from this mommy – my pregnancies where I was that sick and stayed tired in the first trimester were all the ones when I had my girls. I didn’t get really sick when I was carrying Christian. Remember to get rest when you can and again Congratulations!
