Drumroll please.....

Okay. So, I drop a little hint as to why my blogging has slowed down and you guys go nuts! And, yes, some of you smarty pants have guessed it!

Eveley is walking. She has been taking steps here and there for a few months. But the day after her birthday, she gained her confidence and took off. Our world is forever changed!







Well...okay, so that's not the reason. Just trying to add some drama and show off her adorable linen dress with matching jacket.

The real reason: I am pregnant! Bob and I are pleased to announce that we have been blessed with another pregnancy. And we are very excited!

And, what does that have to do with blogging? Well, let's just say I've not been feeling well for the past few weeks. Actually, let's just say I've been feeling TERRIBLE these past few weeks. I cannot believe the exhaustion factor. I have never been one to nap -- never. I can't do it. There's too much to do and a nap is just a waste of time. Until Now. Now, I regularly try to nap while Eveley is taking her afternoon nap. And if it's not possible, I lay on the floor and let her crawl on me and think that we're having fun "floor time" together.


I have made many new friends over the past year. And one mentioned that she was excited to see me pregnant. Well, let me assure you - it is not a pleasant sight. I am tall. But, unfortunately, I am not one of those tall girls with a long, lean torso who just gets a little belly. Instead, I have a very short torso. So my big belly starts right under my ever-growing boobs and I just look fat! So, prepare yourselves.

That said, it is all worth it -- the nausea, 24-7 tinkling, extra pounds, stretch marks, back aches, acne, discomfort, exhaustion, cravings, moodiness, and pain! I can't wait!!
