Morning, Afternoon, and Evening

Whoever came up with the name for Morning Sickness obviously had no idea what he was talking about!

We're happily expecting Baby #2 on June 25 (Nick's birthday!). I am 9 1/2 weeks along and counting down the minutes until the second trimester when I will hopefully feel like a human being again. Until then, unless you want to read blog posts about my take on So You Think You Can Dance or Glee, I don't expect to be doing much worth writing about. My goals for the next few weeks include getting plenty of rest, eating nutritiously, and keeping Baby #1 fed, bathed, and entertained. Notice that my list does not include a perfectly clean house, homemade Christmas gifts or decorations, or any extracurricular activities. Survival can be a lofty enough goal sometimes!

We are especially grateful for our growing family during this Thanksgiving season. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!


  1. I am so excited for your #2 to come along...and I don't want to get anything handmade from you for Christmas! And I want to be able to tell that Nick went out and bought it! :)
    I already have a gift for your baby if it ends up being a boy ;) I really want to give it to you guys...you would understand if you saw it! We will see!

  2. Yeah for baby #2. Sorry you are sick, that sucks. I had all day sickness too. My goal for those days were to at least get off the couch and do something for a few minutes everyday with Gracie, but poor thing watched a lot of movies during those days. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Yeah!!! (For a #2, not for morning sickness) Congrats! Let me know when you find out pink or blue...

  4. Oh congrats Leigh! How exciting! And you are absolutely right-don't worry about anything but you, sweet baby number 2 and of course, adorable baby number 1!

  5. Hi Leigh, it's Aysha. I just read the news and wanted to say congrats! How exciting. You will have to keep us posted on all the updates! I guess no hiking next spring! And then we will have to find stroller friendly trails, because I don't think that you can carry two on your back. I mean you are tough, but that might be much. Again congratulations. I am so excited for you guys!
