well, my dad probably already told you...

since he excitedly told my sisters before i could and then less than 24 hours later when i called them they all faked shocked and surprised reactions... ah, i'm such a tool... anyway, that run-on sentence barely made sense and it's called stalling...

it's kinda early to announce such a thing...

but like i said, my dad probably already told you anyway... sooo...

we are going to have a baby in june.

it happened immediately after the decision was made and we were shocked (it took us six months with amby boy), then silent, then happy, then excited, always grateful and mostly totally and completely thrilled.

ahhhh, will he or she look like our very best friend in the whole wide world?? we are looking forward to finding out.

i feel pretty good if i dont let my stomach get empty. so i eat small healthy snacks throughout the day and when i dont, i lay around in this manner while the boy climbs all over me like this: but i have still been working all over the island, so i try to be organized, eat, and keep it together.

what did ambrose say when we told him? he didnt give it a moments hesitation, he was elated!

Carrie said...

Yaaaay! I'm excited for you! This means we will definitely not have two sets of almost twins though. I'm already psyched for pregger pics. Pregnant people are so cute.

I hope it's a boy!

Audra said...

star said...

Yipee! I am very excited for you. I knew this announcement would come, but I didn't think it would be so soon. I am so happy for you, Thom, and Amby.

Mindy said...

Congratulations! I was just wondering the other day what your status was for baby number two. It seems like every time we saw you for a while you'd changed your mind. That's so exciting!!

Diana said...

ohh, i love dreaming of all the breathtaking pictures of pregnancy and baby two...

Brady and Rachel said...

So I just emailed Thomas to tell you congrats as I hadn't seen a post yesterday, and our computer froze when I tried to get to your blog earlier today, so disregard the congrats from him. I just didn't want to tell you congrats in a comment if you hadn't announced it yet. Funny how the Lord has his own timing when you think you've got a few months before anything will happen. We are SOOO EXCITED for you guys!! Hope you have an easy pregnancy, or at least bareable. I don't think I ever knew whether or not you got nauseous with Ambrose. So I'll hope you don't get too nauseous.

modestmuse said...

Wow, congratulations! That was fast!! You're a great mom, your little one is lucky!

Ashley said...

Bitty said...

Yeah I know your dad did already tell me. But I will try and relive the original moment for you. Congratulations!

Sofia Deyanira said...

YAY for family! Congrats to you and Thomas, I hope you take care of yourself and enjoy the one on one with Ambrose. I am so excited for you!

In.A.Nutshell said...

i must admit i was a bit confused when your father phoned ... how did he get my number in the first place??

at any rate, at least i didn't mention that i knew when i saw you sunday night. i'm excited! way to jump on the 2-kid bandwagon!

Matti said...

Congrats dear friend. This reminds me of when I told my dad I was pregnant with Eden. He pretty much sent it out in a mass email to the world (or at least 100+ people in his email list) half a second after he found out. I was receiving congratulations from people around the world.

Anna K. said...

Yipeeeeeeee! I am so happy for you guys. I wonder what it will be? This is so exciting!

Ali Flegal said...

I am so happy for you!!! Congratulations :) Ambrose will LOVE being a big brother. I love a good pregnancy post, so don't hesitate to commiserate your maladies or share the giddy feelings, etc...

You're so cute pregnant too. YAY!

nicole said...

Congrats!! hope he/she is as cute as the one you already have!

The Shields said...

awesome cousin! congrats

KristenE. said...

Ahhhh1! I literally couldn't breath at the begining of your post. I was thinkin, '....maybe, could it be, i wonder if she is.....YEAH! she's preggers!!!!!!' I am currently crying and jumping for joy(temporary stopped the jumping so that I could type). So exciting! I now realize hints you've dropped...ginger candies at the P.R. party, a tired steph at the U.Y. show, and a spontaneous request to go out for a pedicure for a 'ingrown toenail'...well, sister, bring on the pedis! Here's to having kids!
