Sorry For Being M.I.A....

but I have a few good reasons:

  1. Miss Lou got Coxsackie and had me stressed to the max. She had painful sores in her mouth that made it hard for her to eat and/or drink. This virus is in the same family as hand foot and mouth, to give you an idea of what we are dealing with. So we had to watch her closely to make sure she didn't get dehydrated and try to sneak her motrin and other meds into her drinks or ice cream to keep her pain and fever down... emotional breakdowns a plenty.
  2. Chris got a concussion playing indoor soccer. So for a few days he needed a little extra observation. Thanks to Davis hospital ER for raping us financially on that visit... I will be bitter until that hum-dinger is paid off.
  3. I now have what Lola had... so for the last week I have been in and out of commission. I have literally been in bed since Thursday though. I toughed out the work week and have been resting since. Chris has been amazing and has been there to fulfill my every beck and call. He has been taking care of Lola and the grandparents have been very helpful as well. So thank you EVERYONE. I have been neglecting my Primary Presidency duties for the past 2 weeks and Emily and her hubby have been so understanding and helpful in many ways.
  4. LASTLY, if you don't know already.....
I AM PREGNANT!!!

I will be 11 weeks this week and it has been hard to keep a secret. We almost made it 12 weeks ha ha But I was starting to get a little tummy, so we decided to let the cat out of the bag. But then I got sick and I feel like I have lost 10 lbs in the last few days. I promise I am trying my hardest to keep this little one fed and hydrated. If I don't the baby reminds me by making me nauseous. Luckily I have not been very sick with this pregnancy and hadn't thrown up until today. I think the illness contributed to that though...

We couldn't be happier or more excited and this was planned, just to throw that out there. I am due January 12th and I have my next appt a week from tomorrow so I will have a better Ultra Sound where the bean will actually have arms and legs, coming to the blog soon.

Lola doesn't know what is going on yet. But she LOVES babies and when she gets a little older and we are further along in the pregnancy then we will try explaining it to her a little. The kids will be about 2 and 1/2 years apart. Which I still feel a little guilty about. But with the way Lola looks and acts, you would think she was 3 already ha ha.

Here are a few pics to send you off!How we told Chris's parents.
