The Rumors are True!

Don Lee and I are expecting a second child at the end of January. We had both planned on only having one child but Brixie Lee has been such a joy that we decided we could do even better with the second one! I mean, we know it all now, so #2 should be perfect. Right? That's how it works, right? Cross your fingers for us!

Today marks the first day of my 2nd trimester and we are going to celebrate with 2 skinny cows each tonight! I know, it's kinda crazy, but hey... we deserve it. This pregnancy has been much harder than Brixie Lee. The nausea started right at 6 weeks and started to let up at 11 weeks (a week ago). I went from my extremely active lifestyle of Stroller Strides 4-5 days a week to laying around with my eyes crossed. I was ready to resume my classes this week but we had doctors appointments that conflicted everyday! It's a good thing I didn't toss all my prego clothes because I'm already wearing them.

Below is one of our ultrasound pictures from Tuesday July 22. The technician couldn't tell us anything but she did say that "it" was extremely active and must have liked breakfast. I didn't tell her about the hamburger that I also had right before our 9:15am appt. You are what you eat and I'm a COW!!!!
