And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Update From the Mom-to-be!

Hi everyone

I figured it was my turn to post and fill everyone in on life as a pregnant lady!  Needless to say, life has changed much in the last few months, and it will only continue to change for years to come!

     The pregnancy has been going really well so far.  I was sick for the first 4-6 weeks but then it miraculously disap
peared.  I know a lot of women have it worse than me, but those 4-6 weeks were definitely long enough!  I was in the middle of a 10 credit semester at Reformed Theological Seminary but ended up dropping 2 classes a few weeks after we found out.  A combination of work, school, morning/evening sickness was too much!  I'm feeling great now other than being tired.  I feel like I can sleep 10 hours a night and still need a nap in the middle of the day.  Brian often comes home to find me looking like this.....

but he looks like this.......

I'm now a little over 13 weeks and will go back into the doctor again next week.  We really like our doctor and we're grateful for wonderful healthcare!  I'll deliver right in the Johns Hopkins Hospital!  We'll be right across the street from Brian's lab so I'm teasing him that if I'm in labor too long, he can walk across the street and work for a few hours and come back for the good stuff :)  I doubt he'll take me up on that.

Last week I went to Denver to see my family, especially my new nephew Levi who was born on March 2!  My sister has a 2 year old, Makenna, as well so I got a true taste of what motherhood entails.  Holding the baby definitely made me look forward to having my own.....the diapers did not.

I hated changing diapers of kids other than my own, even those of my nieces or nephews. I was really surprised, though, at how completely happy I was to do it for my own kids.
