What a whirlwind of a weekend! I am still just exhausted from it. I plan on having a relaxing, do nothing weekend coming up.
We had friends over for the husband's 30th birthday Saturday evening. It was a good time. He and his buddy drank way too much and were really struggling Sunday morning, but I think they thought it was worth it?! I tried to convince them (actually in a non nagging way) that they did not have to drink all of the beers in one night, they did not listen and I did not push it. I knew I was going to be hangover free, while still enjoying the company of my good friends. Now, normally I would have been have a few drinks, but I just can't add to the country's fetal alcohol syndrome. We announced to our friends that we are expecting our third little bundle of joy. Thank goodness! I am tired of keeping the "secret"!! The funniest was that it took them a while to figure out we were serious and then our friends' 10 year old daughter said, "AGAIN?!" That was the funniest moment all night. I will remember that when she is allowed to have babies in about 30 years!
We told the monkeys on Friday. Big monkey is so overjoyed. He is convinced the baby is a sister though, so I hope he is not disappointed. He spent a good 15 minutes talking to his Gigi and Granddad about how great it is going to be to have a baby. He is going to call her Lucy. He told me yesterday that he really wished God would put a baby in his tummy. He is so sweet. Little monkey had no comment the first few hours after we told him. Then he leaned up against my belly and started laughing because he said the baby kicked him in the head. They both sang Twinkle to the baby that night before bedtime. So I think we are going to be alright.
I am just happy that the morning sickness has started to subside. It was REALLY rough this time. I am ready for my burst of energy.
