deLIGHTful news

I don’t know why I feel so silly finally writing this post. Perhaps it’s because for the last 8 weeks I’ve been trying to figure out how I’ll survive life with 5 little ones under the age of 8… with 3 of those under the age of 3.  It still seems unreal to me.  But … the time has come to share our DELIGHTFUL news… (well… it will feel more delightful when my all-day nausea stops). Here I am at 13 weeks. Ta-da! The past 7 weeks have been pretty hard ’round here. First Trimester is not my fav. Food is definitely not my friend lately.  My family wonders where their mom has gone. Hopefully she’ll show up in full glory (or even half-glory) in a week or two. The kids have been excited about this news. Abe couldn’t contain his excitement and told the first people he saw even though we asked them to wait a bit. He’s sure it’s a boy. Odds in the Smith extended family would prove him right.  My hopeful heart would enjoy another girlie for some balance in the fam. Whatever our baby is, we will love him/her. I’ll have a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks or so. Another HUGE adventure… here weeeeeeeee come!

    i’m so excited for you!!
    sorry you’re not feeling well– i’m not a big fan of first trimester… blah!
    don’t worry yourself too much thinking about five… remember, God always gives you what you need when you need it. Reality is never as bad as what you think it could be. (Well, almost never.)
    Five will be SO fun!! (And, I’m voting– GIRL. But, if you get a boy we could always trade- i make cute girls.)
