The One Where I Tell You I’m Pregnant Again (and other news)

Well, hey everyone! Glad to see you. Happy to be here.

Just thought I might pop in to fill you in on what nonsense we’ve been up to. I know it’s been awhile. But, I still love you guys and I am 30-40% sure you love me/care about my whereabouts. So, let the over-sharing begin!

Fun Fact: As I so casually alluded to in my title, I am pregnant with baby #3! Surprise, world! (Surprise also, self and husband!) We have known for a while, but as these pregnancies keep coming, I am getting lazier and lazier with announcing them. Not that we’re not excited, just lazy. 🙂 I am 14-15ish weeks right now, due at the end of May.. so probably June if my other well-baked babies are any indication. Here’s a crazy/awkward/very flattering photo I sent to a friend after I found out (no bump yet to show you) and the 10 week ultrasound photo:


Enough of that? Yes. In other news,


Though I have all but quit writing here, I have still be writing at Modern Parents Messy Kids. I just posted up a fun ice cream sandwich bar for the holidays (shown above). I love the idea- totally switches things up from your typical holiday cookie spread. Check out the post at MPMK for more details and recipes. I also shared my list of holiday baking essentials that I keep on hand this time of year.

My evening sickness (I typically do better in the mornings, I am a weirdo) has been crippling at times (over-dramatic much?), I am still managing to turn meals out of the kitchen. Dishes are going days without being washed… but everyone is still well fed. Can’t say the meals have all been paleo or GAPS or even gluten-free, but they’ve been meals and I’m thankful they made it to the table. Some phone pictures of our escapades:

I feel like I have lots more to say, but this is all I can handle right now, you guys. Baby steps! Maybe I will share some foodie gift ideas with you soon? My head is swimming with holiday ideas but I can’t seem to get it all on paper yet. I’ve been keeping up with Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, so be sure to follow me there if you want to keep up with me while I am an otherwise delinquent blogger. Slow blogging for the win!

And of course, enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday! We all have so much to be thankful for.

    Congrats! May babies are the best! Although sorry about the evening sickness. We ate pancakes about 4 times a week when I was pregnant with Levi…no one remembers but me. 🙂

    Where did you get those red trees? Fun.

    Also, slow bloggers of the world unite!

    Congratulations! We are batting around the idea of babe no 3. my 5 year old missed the cutoff for kindergarten so she has been home for 3 years in 3 yrs of preschool. I have a 17 m old who I want to have time together while my oldest starts school- but I think we might start trying and hope for the best! I remember you saying you had colitis or chron’s was it? Are you still on the SCD or PAleo diet? I am currently on SCD and crying on the inside with all the delicious food around… mostly baked goods- but I am behaving. I had tp get off of SCD with my second bc I was having serious cravings… what about you?!

      I have strayed somewhat from the diet over the holidays, but I’m trying to stick to a Full GAPS type diet during pregnancy. It is tough, though!
