Sorry for the delay in posting my friends. This weekend my hubby battled the stomach flu (so much for my morning sickness) and after a day of packing, yesterday we traveled down to Maryland for our annual Thanksgiving vacation. Everything went smoothly with our trip, and I must admit I am not looking forward to the prospect of traveling with an under 3 year old again. Maybe this time we will just stay home for a while (yeah, I believe that just as much as you do.)
Well, it is Thanksgiving, and I am happy to report I have something to be very thankful for... Monday we saw a heartbeat! A real, true, strong, butterfly like heartbeat. I am finally convinced that there really is a baby in there! Also, which according to my husband is the real news, is that there was only ONE heartbeat. There had been some early speculation by my Dr. that our single embryo might have split into identical twins, but alas there is just one strong little fighter, which is perfectly a OK with us. I was given a due date of July 17th, and so far everything looks perfectly normal. I can't even begin to tell you what a relief that was.
So this year, as much as any other, I am just so thankful for my family. I have two amazing boys at home, and I can't believe that soon there will be one more of us. I feel so blessed that I am able to have another chance to be a momma, and I just know my little man is going to love being big brother. (He already asked if he could be the one to pick the TV shows in the morning, coming from one older sibling to another, I assured him that the big one usually gets their say... for at least a while.)
I also am a little thankful that I get to eat whatever I want this holiday season. When I requested that a second pecan pie be made this year around, I'm not sure anyone took me seriously. Let me tell you, a pregnant girl NEVER jokes about pie!
I'll leave you with this picture of my loves. I snapped them Monday after my hubby picked up the little man from school so I could sneak in a manicure (I was just as surprised as you are) and I just couldn't resist spying on them from a salon. There is something about my husband carrying a toy bunny that just does it for me... le swoon.
I hope you all have a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving filled with lots and lots of loved ones! I will be back next week as usual, but until then... bring on the pie!
