SuRprIsE!!!I went on all of the rides at Disneyland – especially the fast, jerky ones; I went cave jumping (well, only once) in Mexico; flew to both places, and took a long car trip with all the kids for Christmas, and didn’t even know I was pregnant – I didn’t feel sick once. What a miracle! But really, this baby itself is a miracle…sparing you the details, there is no way we should be pregnant – but here we are! I knew this would happen at some point, because I absolutely knew there was another baby to come to our home…and I really am grateful that it didn’t happen ten years down the road when we were completely out of baby mode. I’m due August 20th – perfect for the swimsuit season!!! Now I’ll have an excuse to be big!
The girls are sooo excited! We just told them last night. We showed them the ultrasound, and asked if they knew what it was.
Bella promptly answered:
“A baby in your tummy.” then asked if it was Calvin.
“No, not Calvin.”
“No, it’s not Azure.”
“Oh, so it’s me.”
“Nope, it’s not you either.”
They were totally confused.
“If it’s not you, or Azure or Calvin, who could it be?”
“Sam?” (their uncle)
“Has Sam ever been in mommy’s tummy?”
Then they guessed Daddy and then Nana…and then Dan helped them out by saying,
“If it’s none of you, and you are the only ones that have been in mommy’s tummy, it must be a NEW baby!”
Then the squealing and jumping up & down and hugging began.
It made me feel so good!
Then they wanted to run to the kitchen and draw pictures of the new baby.
Bella drew a baby boy named ‘Cache’, and Azure drew a baby girl. I asked her what she would want to name it if it was a girl, and she matter-of-factly answered:
Marose? I asked.
“Noooo. Miss Marose.”
I think it is safe to say that Azure will not be naming our baby.
Lots of love to all!
