Un... deux... trois...

Rachel here. Our family of 4 will morph into a family of 5 come May! Holy Shenanigans!We're currently faced with a flood of emotions. Excitement... hello! ANOTHER PEANUT! Nervous... 3 kids? OMG! Scared... I can't wrap my mind around having enough love inside for 3... I feel like Reese and Emma Grace already drain all the love out of me just by looking at me. I know once Baby Boo (Boo is from Monster's Inc... the girls have been asking for a baby, but only if it's like B00!) arrives, everything will fall into place.

Logistics. Today I'm officially 12 weeks. We found out only two days before the App St. game (see how events in our lives are related to VT events?), which made for some awkwardly sneaky moments during tailgating and venturing downtown for various festivities. Poor Bryan... he consumed enough alcohol for 3... and did so semi gracefully... while I put various bottles of beer to my lips... such a tease. That puts me due May 8th... while Bryan is still finishing up with shenanigans in Abingdon. It's going to be a LONG winter... that's for sure.

Unfortunately I'm battling Rhinitis once again. It's an increase of mucus production due to estrogen levels. I wake up in the morning with a throat/nose filled... which causes me to get sick. Lovely huh? I successfully puked everyday during both pregnancies with the girls... I can only imagine this will be the same. I'm having a hard time managing my hunger. I'm hungry all the time, which is a real pain... and often find myself too hungry. It's hard to keep up with the two girls and myself! I'm used to catering to them first and then doing what I need to do for myself, but I'm trying to learn I can't do that right now. It's hard.

We're still planning on listing the house according to schedule. We were absolutely NOT willing to put our family on hold based on whether or not our house would sell in a timely manner. The girls will be bunking up, Baby Boo will have his/her own room, and we'll move on from there.

We are all unbelievably excited! When we told Reese, she had the most disgusted look on her face "well, I guess I'm exciting (that's how she says excited), as long as it's a girl, and I can teach her how to share." When we asked EG if she wanted to be a big sister, she said "no, my (I) a witch!" Luckily we have some time to get them semi used to the idea before Boo comes.

One last tidbit... this is our FINAL child... I'm really feeling this one and just can't seem to get enough rest. That Michelle Dugger is off her rocker... for reals!

You don't know me, but I stumbled upon your blog when Reese was little and I check back every now and again... Just wanted to say congrats! We're thinking of adding a 3rd as well... With little ones that are 4 and 2 now... The mere idea turns me into a nervous wreck :)
