mama monday: +

That's right, my patient little pumpkins: all the missed posts and writer's block can finally be explained.

I happen to be quite knocked up.

Oh yes, there is much more to the story.  Too much for one post so I'll have to keep you coming back for more over the next few weeks.

I'd have thought announcing our pregnancy to the world would feel more glamourous but it's hard to feel glamourous when meat makes me nauseous (MEAT, of all things...Andrew thinks that it's hilarious that his "little velociraptor" of a wife is a temporary vegetarian), I'm on a strict diet of beige - and occasionally green - food items, I'm experiencing bouts of insomnia for the first time in my life, and I now take sudden and unexpected trips to crazy town.  Oh, and my bladder is the size of a ping-pong ball.

Speaking of size, however, Baby Gaz (who will be debuting on or around November 12th of this year) is now the size of a salted cashew:

Mmm.  Salted cashew.

I most definitely ate the stand-in for Baby Gaz after this photo.

At this point, my favourite thing to announce is that no gag reflex, no sleepless night, no hormonal surge,  and no inconvenient pee schedule could possibly dampen my excitement and joy.  We've been waiting for Baby Gaz for a year and a half, and we don't mind waiting a few months more.

I definitely screemed the word 'YAYYYY Baby!' in my office full of men rather loudly and I am not ashamed!

Sooo excited for you three! May this year be one full of excitement, joy and surprises from our Big Daddy!

Love you guys

So unbelievably excited for you guys! (Minus the meatlessness) it will be the most incredible adventure ever!!!! :)

Ok, why you gotta go and make me cry all over again? Sniff, the cashew picture?! Come on...I am wearing mascara and everything!

Guys, this is amazing. Knowing your love tanks are so full already I can't wait to see them EXPLODE with the love that comes when you meet your wee one. Seriously. LOVE is gonna rock your world! Sweet sweet November...

Woo hoo! Congrats!!!

Our office carnivore who became an herbivore during pregnancy, is now a carnivore again, post labour.

Also, November's a great month to be born!

Lots of love,

Sarah and Andrew... I remember the night you took us out to eat the best Gnocchi I have ever had in my life and hearing about your desire for a child. And now there is a salted cashew that bears your image. I cannot tell you how happy I am right now. This is just incredible. I honestly can't stop smiling... its beginning to hurt. We love you guys!!!

Anthony and Susie

Thea said...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you both. I know that God has placed this desire in your hearts and has been preparing you for parenthood for some time now. Heaps of prayers go out to you as your little one continues to grow and as you get ready for his/her arrival.

November babies are the best!

P.S. Nathanael says,"x9gju csxccccccccccccc!"

(Also, I was thinking... did Sarah post a picture of the actual stick she peed on? Is that a photo, in essence, of Sarah's pee? I'm not sure how I feel about that.)

But again, congrats - I know this is what you've been euphamisaming for.
