I am afraid to say it, but I think I might be over the worst of the first trimester sickness. I woke up this morning with a good bit of my former energy. I have scoured my kitchen counters, the inside and outside of the microwave, the oven in and out. I took a break as the slipcovers for my breakfast room chair wash, so I could also pay my bills. My budget has benefited from my sickness but my house hasn't. My Aunt Penny has been easing my burden for the past couple of months, thankfully. The tolerance you can build for nastiness is unbelievable when you feel bad constantly. It has been a good lesson for me. It has also helped me with the wondering of the sex of this baby. I have taken the Intelligender Test. According to it, I am having another boy. The Chinese calender also says boy. You know all of these methods are extremely accurate, like 50%! But I think its a boy as well, I am going to try not to cry at my ultrasound like I did with Jack. Another lesson learned, God could not have blessed me with a more beautiful or sweeter child. He was a booger as a baby though.
I am not sure I would be a good girl mother. I would try to push her to do all of these super girly things that she probably wouldn't want to do. I have three brothers and I wanted to do everything they did.
I am very excited that we get to add another little somebody to our family. I miss having a tiny baby. I have thoroughly doted and babied my little Jack. He'll probably be relieved to not be so suffocated. Who am I kidding, he is going to be insanely jealous. He has been telling me he is not a baby lately, he's a big boy.
Well, my big boy and I are on a roll today, his creativity has kicked in as well, so we've got to go and move furniture and clean. Praise the Lord I am back to normal!
I am leaving you with this photo from House Beautiful, it's the after of my family room(in my dreams). Isn't it fabulous? To look at the entire spread go to
