aaaaand…. deep breath.

I’ve had a set of t-shirts shoved in my bottom dresser drawer since early June, just waiting to be used. I was days away from dressing the girls up and taking a picture of them proudly wearing them, but of course, plans changed.

I expected that they’d remain in that drawer for a while, but… well…!

two big sisters

Baby Lyker The Third is due to arrive around April 7, 2013. He or she had a strong heartbeat and fantastic growth a few weeks ago at my ultrasound, and judging by how sick I’ve been lately (OH MY GAWD YOU GUYS), the doctors and I agree, this one is a keeper.

I debated keeping this quiet for a just a few more weeks (I’m 10 weeks now & go back to the doctor in two weeks for a heartbeat check) but honestly I just can’t keep it in anymore. I’m so excited to share! And also so sick and getting a belly already (!) and it’s getting harder and harder to hide. So you know- practicality and terrible secret keeping skills. heh.

(You guys. WHAT IF IT’S A BOY? What if it’s ANOTHER GIRL??? OMG!)

If you need me, I’ll be moaning on the couch and nibbling on goldfish crackers in between hot flashes. Yay babies!

    But that doesn’t necessarily mean a damn thing. I’m really bad at pregnancy.
