OK, OK, I'll Update

Well, Dotkat has been on my case, in an ever so loving way, to get off my duff and update my blog. She also alluded to my feeling poorly in her comment in my last posting.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as of two months ago the bun is in the oven, the rabbit has died. I am a defective typewriter (missing period - from Rizzo in Grease) and I am officially knocked up.

I got to tell you, as much as we are excited and scared about having a baby, this morning sickness thing is totally crappy. I've got headaches on a daily basis (hence the reason I don't like to be on the computer very much). Loud noises and sudden motions bug me. Also I am tired ALL THE TIME. Seriously, staying up to 8:45 is a late night for me. And Morning Sickness is a misnomer. It hits and whatever part of the day it darn well pleases. I think the baby is trying to help me lose a little weight before the "Feed me Seymore" stage hits.

My students have decided that they will get to pick at least the middle name. So in a year if you see an Alexis Juanita Lucia Smith-Fujikawa or Joe Bob Juan Carlos Schmit-Yashimoto, it will probably be my kid.

So although I do not plan to make this into a cotton candy all-baby-all-the time, you know there will be more to come.

Until then...

Yay! Nagging works!! Thanks for the link ;-) Whatever picture you have posted, it didn't come through, at least on my end. If it was a pic of you, email it to me, OK? I don't have any pics of Sarah's tummy yet. Wheeeee! Babies!!!

dotkat, I think I will do humanity a favor and not have a bare belly picture. maybe when I am 8 months or so when I can blame everything on baby-fat!

Congrats! on the arrival of a wee little one, I'm sure the morning sickness and the tiredness will soon go away.

Thanks SR. I am praying what you said will be true. From your lips to God's ears!

Hey, JM, I just dropped in. What wonderful news! Woohoo!

Morning sickness rots (or at least, so it always seemed to me), but at least it's finite in duration. Here's hoping that your pregnancy is like all of Molly's were, and you spend the middle trimester with that radiant, "I'm gonna have a baby!" look.

And little Desmond Julio Johnson-Fujimori - may he (OK, it could be a girl) bring joy to your lives. . .

Des, thank you for the warm wishes - as well as the suggestion. I will keep it on file.
