Babies Aren't The Suck

So by now everyone knows we're expecting a little surprise in April right?  After Lola was born last March we were giving our tiny baby girl things away to our cute neighbors and I'll admit, I wasn't sad at all. For me, not being sad about having our last baby already here is a big step for me. I LOVE babies. Holy, you don't even know. I could cuddle and snozz with a tiny wee one every day til I die but this time, I wasn't really sad at all. I think I figured that I knew more than the man upstairs did and we just figured we were through. Little did we know.

In June, I thought my new pills were making me sick. In July I figured they were stopping my periods because they were too strong.

Think again, Allison.

Baby Number 7 will be arriving in April, and we couldn't be MORE excited. We waited til we were 22 weeks or so to tell people for a few reasons, but by now everyone knows.

Lola is a big girl. There have been a few people who have been worried that Lola won't get her "due baby attention time"...nonsense. This little girl is the first baby girl in this home in 16 years.  Not that we don't love our boys but trust me, attention going to Lola will NEVER be a problem.  Also, there have been issues raised about finances. Our beliefs are different than some of our loved ones, and we understand their concern, but we have faith. We know that when we're living a happy life and doing what we are supposed to be doing as parents and as a family, magical things happen. Miracles, really.  We make it work, and it always does.

Now that the word's out, I can't wait to fill you in on the details of my daily cravings.  Right?  Just kidding.  I'll let you know if I start wanting to chew on chalk but for now, I just love Milky Way candy bars. Please send me a billion for Christmas.

Thank you in advance for your generous chocolate gifts.


P.S.  Today is my parents' 38th wedding anniversary!  Love you guys!  Can't wait to see you in a day or so!  Drive safe!

totally excited for you! There is enough love to go around! You love Milky Ways, I love the smell of laundry soap. They are about the same. I just don't want a whole bunch of laundry soap for Christmas though so I haven't let the cat out of the bag:)

April 6th is a great day to have a babay. They get the dubious honour of sharing it with Candace Cameron.

P.S. Please name it DJ if this happens.
