making it official!




















i'm back and WAY behind, but let me just get right to it... This is hardly a surprise for most of my readers (if i still have any, that is~!), but we are excited to announce that baby gassner #2 is on the way! this ultrasound sound is at 9 weeks 6 days and i'm now 14 weeks 1 day, so the little rolo (will tell the story another day!) is now looking more like a baby than a bean and is approximately 3-4 inches long already. we are over the moon and can't wait to find out if we are having a boy or a girl - but have decided to wait until the day of his/her birth - which is scheduled to be sometime around october 31! probably won't be a halloween baby, but will for sure be an october baby, so that will make 3 out of 4 of us october birthdays! i'm finally feeling good. i can't complain too much, because i haven't actually been sick...but i had 3-4 weeks where i felt really nauseous and NOTHING sounded good to eat - except crap, of course! i've been extra tired, but honestly i don't know i can blame the pregnancy or if it's just a build up of 17 months of pure exhaustion! i'd be lying if i didn't admit that there are times where i feel a bit anxious, wondering how we will manage 2 little ones. they will be ~23 months apart, which my doctor says is a perfect age difference...but i'm bracing myself for it to be a challenging first year or two! i'm hopeful that this time around i'll feel a little more confident, a little more calm and a little more relaxed. i hear that it is easier the second time around and i hope that it's true for us! either way...i know that we couldn't be more thrilled to add another little one to our family and we're up for the challenge and the joy!


ok - it's so good to have our computer back...we had a major virus and had to re-install the whole Operating System (ok...we didn't do it, but a paid professional did!). let me tell you...our files were recovered, but i sure felt SO much better knowing that even if they weren't, they were safely backed up on our external hard drive (thank you, bry!). i have so much more to share (like our BIG trip away from the boy to SF!!), but it will have to wait for another day!
