#2

Here I go again, Brian will find out about this soon enough. Practically everyday he's been asking when he can call his parents. Maybe they'll call him...

If all goes well, there should be a new baby around here in early November.

I just couldn't wait another 6 weeks until the hallowed 12th week- It's Now Safe To Announce time. I couldn't even wait to get home or let alone have Brian there to take the test, right after I bought it Eli and I ran to the bathroom. Happy, life-changing event, right there in Wal-mart. Besides, I'd rather spill the joyous news while I'm still feeling good about it and not barfing 10 times a day, no euphemisms when feeling like that. Sunday started the "you must eat every two hours to keep nausea at bay even though nothing sounds good" (except fast food) routine.

Brian is very excited to have someone that he can cuddle for hours on end (and who won't complain about it) and is already asking if the little one can sleep in our bed. I wonder if he knows he/she already is.

I'm grateful for the 3 year space. Eli should be a good helper with his tidy and somewhat obedient and responsible nature.

Luckily, for Brian and his Asian notions, he got a son first, so it doesn't matter what this one is. For what its worth, some Chinese Lunar predictor says it will be a girl.

It's going to be a long wait, but I'll need the time for deciding a name (I guess Brian could have some input) despite my indecisiveness and sewing projects, I've been getting jealous of all the cute things I give to other people.

So there we go. That's how everybody finds out. The most dedicated readers first, I suppose. Ah! I'm going to click "publish post" now! And then get a snack, my nap and all this typing made me hungry.
