First off, I want to share my excitement about an amazing event going on right now over at the RTH Forums! The Ultimate Household Challenge has begun, and members old and new are competing each week for prizes, reclaimed homes, and bragging rights! If you want to join in, you can hop on over at any time. There are door prizes for new members, live chats, games, and all sorts of motivation & inspiration. Most importantly there are so many new friendships to be gained, and a sense of community that is difficult to find these days. Pop on over and join in if you like, or even sit back and watch the fun unfold! :)
This was something completely unexpected, but very very exciting for us. I am still in a little bit of shock from the news, but it is starting to sink in, especially since the morning sickness and exhaustion are reminding me quite often of the new little addition!
The girls are quite excited about the prospect of being big sisters, especially Anna. They keep rubbing my tummy and asking "baby?" which just makes me melt into an emotional blob right where I'm sitting. :)
This means lots of changes in our lives but will also mean so many amazing joys ahead. With the baby due just before Christmas we will be planning and preparing for both the baby and the holidays with vigor, so I'm am sure you'll see some results of that on the blog here before much longer.
I could go on and on all day with the plans and surprises that all of this brought to us, but my slice of toast is calling me, as are my loving children who are anxious to spend a morning coloring with Mommy.
I just couldn't wait a moment longer to share our news with you all. :)
Thank you for sharing in my joy!
PS - check out the AMAZING artist who drew that lovely picture of a pregnant woman at THIS BLOG. So cool. :)
