It has been a while since I have posted, hasn't it? Life has been a whirlwind of cleaning and showings lately. No offers yet, but we have two weeks left before we lose the house we made an offer on. I won't be too sad if we lose it. I really like our house and am getting all sorts of mushy sentimental feelings about leaving it now.
Some good news: I now get several hours of respite care a week for the kids. We have waited for the proper bureaucratic channels to open, and now that they have, I have time every week for myself, and soon will have time for a weekly date night. I am so very happy about this. It has lifted a giant weight from my shoulders. I no longer have to worry about scheduling appointments and scrambling for child care.
One more thing...
Surprise! We found out over Christmas that Emmett and Charlotte will have a new companion at the end of the summer. This is what I look like today, at nine weeks and two days. Things are going really well so far--this baby seems to know that I don't have time to be sick. Except for bone crushing fatigue and the growth in front, I hardly feel pregnant at all.
