Here's The Real Deal

I've been complaining a lot lately about not having any scrapping mojo, the truth of the matter is not so much a mojo problem but a first trimester fatigue problem. Yeah, you heard right, I'm pregnant! I don't remember ever being this tired in my life! I come home from work and lie on the couch until it's time to go to bed, of course Donovan is bugging me every 10 minutes which makes me more tired. This morning sickness is kicking my butt!! Actually, it's more like morning, noon, and night sickness! Let's not mention the fact that I can't eat because everything, even my favorites, taste disgusting...I've lost almost 10 lbs! And everything stinks to high heaven...I walk around with a permanent grimace on my face and "what is that smell?" on the tip of my tongue! I'm almost 14 weeks along and due April 12, 2008. I had to have a CVS test done so I was able to find out the sex early....Donovan is going to have a little brother! I never pictured myself as a mom of two boys, but it was meant to be and I'm so happy! You know Troy is beside himself! So say "HI" to my little guy!


Donovan and I have been talking a lot about the baby in mommy's belly. He knew from the beginning that he wanted a baby brother, he said girls are nasty! Big brother to be is becoming quite the artist. At 3 1/2 he tries to be very detailed with his drawings. I just had to share this one because I thought it was so adorable. When I asked him what he drew he said "a dinosaur eating pizza". I couldn't help but laugh and if you look close enough you can see a triangle shape in the dinosaur's mouth. Can you see the long sharp teeth? He is too much! Today he drew a picture of a fish eating his tail! This boy cracks me up!

StaceyM said...

Woo Hoo.........YAY..........You go girl!!! I just knew when you said you had something to share that this was going to be it!!! And another boy to boot!!! You are going to have so much fun. I'm all giddy for you.

Tell Donovan that I knew that was a dinosaur because he did such a good job showing us those big bad teeth. You need to show him how to make books like my son Trevor does. He takes a couple sheets of paper and cuts them down to size. We then staple the middle together and fold to make the book. He then creates all kinds of stories with pictures and now words. Something to keep forever and he loves doing it. I have to keep them with all of my altered stuff and mini albums!!!

Congratulations to you and your wonderfully growing family!!!!
