Exciting Changes!

Remember that week a few months ago, where we had a gajillion things happening? (If not, you can read about it here.)  But, as a recap, this is what we faced in seven short days at the end of February:
  • Friday - we listed our house
  • Saturday - we put Spanky down
  • Tuesday/Wednesday - launched a HUGE project at work (biggest that BI has seen to-date)
  • Wednesday - we sold our house
Well...there was one other life-changing thing that happened, that I started to suspect on that Thursday, but didn't get confirmation until that Saturday...Baby Goers is coming our way, November 2013!

Seriously, I'm not sure how much more we could have packed into that one week, and frankly, I don't want to try to top that week - ever. 

I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant, and feeling great!  No morning sickness at all with this one (I had a tiny bit with Ava.)  I'm mostly just more tired and hungry than usual.  And honestly, we're so busy with everything else that I sometimes forget that I'm pregnant.  We've heard the heartbeat and even had an early ultrasound, so there's definitely a baby in there!

A few weeks ago, Ava made the comment that my belly was getting bigger.  I asked her if she knew why, and she said, "Because you have a baby in there!"  I denied it and told her I had been eating more (which isn't a lie - I've been inhaling everything around me.)  So, yesterday, it didn't come as quite a surprise when we broke the news to her...but, she's still excited to be a big sister!

 Watch Ava's reaction here!

We were at an engagement party last night, and Ava said the best part about this is when "they cut mommy open, take the baby out of her belly, and sew her back up.  YEAH!"  Um...  I'm going to disagree with her on this one.

So, lots of changes coming in the next six months for our family. I was hoping our house would be built before school starts in the fall, now my goal is to have it built before I have this baby. If not, we'll manage...we always do!
