Almost a month

I can't believe it's been almost a whole month since I've posted last. Things have been pretty crazy around here. We have little by little been making improvements to our home. Mostly in the form of replacing all the hard flooring, i.e. changing the nasty linoleum to tile. We have done the guest bathroom, laundry room, entry way , hallway(that is wood) and we are now tiling the kitchen. It has been quite a project, especially with a baby that is crawling and into everything! We have half of the kitchen done, where our dining table goes, and are bracing ourselves to tackle moving all of the appliances and being in real chaos for a couple of weeks.

In other news, I am pregnant...again. I am due on December 8th which puts me at about 12 weeks. I have been very sick which is another reason I have disappeared from the blogasphere for so long. I am happy and overwhelmed and terrified all at the same time. We knew we were going to have at least one more child, but I seem to get pregnant very quickly, sometimes too quickly and that means all of my kids will be very close in age (18 months apart for all of them). It has it's advantages and disadvantages. I am happy that I can be done with pregnancies and all that goes along with them, and that I will be a relatively young mom (I turn 31 this summer) and that all of baby chaos is happening all at once while I am used to it...but on the other hand, I will have a three year old, 18 month old, and a new born. The thought sometimes makes me cry. But, I take comfort in the fact that most likely this is our last one and I can just relax a bit after this and actually enjoy my kids!

Congrats! That is a lot to handle... my mom had 3 in 3 so I know it can be done! And look how wonderful we all turned out. Just kidding... I know you'll do great! I hope you feel better!

AAAAHHHH!!!! Congrats! I can't even imagine thinking about having another one anytime soon...three definitely sounds overwhelming, but you'll be great! I agree--maybe it's better just to pop them out while you're in baby mode. Otherwise, it will get too easy and you won't want to start over. We're excited for you!
