cookoo-ness explained...

If you read THIS POST, you'll know I mentioned I had some wonderfully fabulous news that was making me go cookoo.
And if you read THIS POST, you'll know why this news is extra special!

Here is my excuse:
A baby!!  Yay!!

If you click on the image, it may (or may not) be a little more clear.  I labeled the parts I could make out as "leg", "face" and "head".
I am 12 weeks pregnant! 
My due date... Noah's birthday!  April 1, 2011. 
Hopefully it really won't land on the same day so they can each have their own special day.
It took 15 months to get pregnant this time, as opposed to the immediate conception of Noah.  At the year mark, we had a few very embarrassing tests done, took some prescribed antibiotics and 3 months later... this little bitty!
Who knew that's all would take??
I have been soooo super sick!  I've officially decided this pregnancy is way worse than my first.  I've been battling ALL DAY nausea, serious fatigue and tailbone pain!  What the???  My doc says the tailbone pain is due to where bitty baby is resting and will probably get better.  Let's hope!
And this nausea!!  When all my favorite foods and treats are sitting untouched in the fridge for weeks until they go bad, then you know I really am sick.  I mean, we're talking homemade chocolate fudge sauce, mint chocolate chip icecream, cheese (some of you may know of my love affair with cheese) chips and salsa, watermelon, brownies, popsicles, you name it!  And so when I'm shopping, if it sounds good I buy it in hopes of eating something.  And as soon as I get home, my stomach churns at the thought of it. 
And with all this aversion to food, you'd think I'd lose a few LBs.  No such luck.  My weight has stayed the same, and now my silly chub covered belly is already sticking out!
even with all the sick and tired and complaining, I'm one of the happiest gals around!  We are so excited to add this little bitty to our family.  He/she (won't know the sex for another month or so) was moving around and kicking so much it looked like he/she was running in place! 
And when we got home, Noah told me, "Mommy, Noah have a baby in my belly too!" 
I said, "You do!  That's wonderful!"
He said, "And baby comes out outside and play outside."
I thought that sounded like a good plan. 
Later he said, "Momma, Noah a baby!"
I said, "Really?  Are you sure?"
He said, "Noooooo!  Silly Noah!"
He's such a funny kid.  He keeps looking under my shirt for this baby that we talk about.  I wonder what he'll think when my belly really starts to grow!

Well, I have much to catch up on!  A camping trip from August, a trip to the state fair with Chocolate and Vanilla, new paintings and silly Noah-isms.  AND.. I will do my best to add a little creative inspiration here and there for you with all these holidays coming up!
Hope you're all well and happy too!
