Hello Friends! I’m sorry for the silence, Christmas was a whirlwind and we took a road trip to Illinois to spend time with my grandparents, dad and step mom, and extended family. I was too busy being in the moment to blog! Trip rewind and photos to come, promise.
I’m linking with Lisa Leonard for a few hellos. I love this linky!
Hello post vacation blues! My husband returned to work this morning and Malone and I are left trying to scrape together a routine. Two weeks of family time was awesome but it blew all routine out the window. There was a point when Malone was going to bed at 10:00 pm! Too late buddy! I’ve decided that we’re done with naps in hopes that we can leverage that into a normal bedtime.
Hello laundry. I hate you. But I need clean undies. At last count there were 8 loads. Feel free to send the laundry fairy over anytime!
Hello 2013! I’m still working on my goals for this new year. I have a few ideas but I want some time alone with a notebook and pen to flesh them out. I think I might get sometime this week. Don’t worry, I’ll share them with you when I do. Last year my friend Nancy told me that my goals inspired her to focus on hers. She’s already got hers up!
Hello 7 weeks! If we are real life Facebook fiends then you’ve heard the news. If not, we are having a baby in late August! 2013 seems to be the year of the baby! 3 of my girlfriends are due in March, a few of our other friends are having babies later on this year, and one of my favorite bloggers, Diana Stone, is due two days after I am.
How about a pregnancy update?
Energy Level: Low.. I forgot how tiring early pregnancy is. Thankfully, while Mike was home these past few weeks I got a nap in every day.
What I’m Eating: Not much… I’m sick first thing in the morning and the nausea stays until lunch time. It makes wanting food really hard. I really wanted Raman noodles the other day but opted for a huge salad instead.
What I’m Struggling With: Worry. At the end of my pregnancy with Malone I was borderline pre eclamptic. I was on modified bed rest. It wasn’t fun. I’ll do anything I can to prevent that from happening again.
What I’m Loving: We really surprised our families when we told them. And we caught it on tape. I’ll share it with you all later this week.
The baby is the size of a blueberry, but I’m already busting out the maternity pants. I’ve got a little bump already. Who knew that this could happen so early?
What are you saying hello to this week?
Congrats on your pregnancy! So exciting for you. Wishing you all the best.
I dream of a laundry fairy. I really, really hate laundry.

The bump definitely comes out earlier the second time around! I found that eating actually *helps* with the nausea, even if it’s just a glass of oj or a piece of toast. Looking forward to following your pregnancy tales!
