checking in, and it's a.....

Hello lovely September mamas!

Things have been absolutely crazy since we moved, but I have been reading and keeping up with all of you. Sorry I haven't been posting. The big government grant that my job is based on is currently open until May 12th, so I have been working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for the last 3 weeks. I am exhausted, and so ready to be done. I'd whine about it more, but it really is just part of my job, and it only happens once a year, so I'm trying to keep that in perspective.

I did want to update you guys on what has been happening baby-wise though...we found out a couple of weeks ago that we are expecting another little BOY! DH was actually a little disappointed at first, as he was really hoping for a girl this time around, but we are both so excited now. We didn't tell anyone what were having for a couple of days, then did the little gender reveal party for a few family and friends. Because we both knew what we were having, we let my MIL cut the cake and show it off to everyone - it was so fun! Here are a couple of pictures: (sorry they are so big...I am not very good at Photobucket)



And finally - the big reveal!

Anyway, I will be around, but will probably be quiet until after the 13th of May. I feel like after that is when I can finally start enjoying this pregnancy! I keep having moments of panic that I have literally NOTHING done to prepare for this little boy!
