So you WERE paying attention!

OK OK OK, I promise that I did not intend to leave you hanging for quite so long. But the truth is...

I AM pregnant...

and frankly, I haven't felt very much like blogging (or anything else) lately. It was all I could do to get the basics done--feed, clothe, chauffer my children etc.

We are pretty excited but I have never enjoyed actually being pregnant.

Jeff and I sort of made a deal with H.F. We gave him one more year to get things done--if at the end of the year we were still not pregnant, then we were accepting the fact that this was our complete family. --Well, our year was a matter of days to being UP. I was just getting used to the idea of 3 amazing kids and finally being able to get rid of all our baby stuff. But, I guess H.F. was allowing us to work on the principles of patience and trust because he distracted the goaly just as time was expiring.

It is still pretty early so I hadn't anticipated telling everyone yet--but once we told the parents and kids--it became increasingly harder to keep the secret.
By my calculations we are looking at mid-September.
So, there you have it...

...You can all go laugh now and say a little prayer thanking H.F. that it's us and not you.

Congratulations Julie !

We're expecting our #4 in May, and had a very similar "should we or shouldn't we" experience, so I know what you mean :)

Hey Julie. You are right about the marshmallow pops. After you dip them and put sprinkles on them, put them in the fridge to harden before packaging them. Congrats again on the new baby!
