Beans are spilled....

Ever since last Saturday the gossip wire has been hot over here!  Half the school and probably all of church knows, thanks to my 4 fast-talking, loud-mouthed kids:

We are expecting a baby, around here, folks.  I am due in April and so far, so good.  Thought I should let you, my cool cyber friends, know before you heard it from my kids. 

Here's some answers to questions that are probably forming in your head (if you don't see your answer, than write me a question in the comments form and I will answer it for you--oh goodie!)

1. Yes, this was planned.

2. There will be 5 years between child #4 and child #5.

3. No, I have not been sick (never have with anyone--don't you hate me?)

4. No, we're not finding out what we're having--this will be a tie-breaker.

5. No, it's not multiples--we saw an ultrasound and there is only 1 baby there.

6. Yes, I am starting over from scratch, in regards to baby things* (This includes all my maternity clothes which a "friend" borrowed and never returned.  They were pretty cool and maybe she sold them because they were that awesome.  Oh well, bummer, guess I have to go shopping :).  )

 *The crib and a stroller managed to get packed and moved over the years and are magically awaiting to return from storage.

We are pretty excited.  I made up two new rules in our household: 1) You are NOT allowed to make ANY comments about mom's body and/or size and 2) You are NOT allowed to ask when the baby is due, since mom and dad already told you and you will make the next 20+ weeks absolutely miserable for your mother if you are constantly asking "When's the baby coming?"  or "How much LONGER til the baby gets here?", etc....

Well then, that's my news.  The beans are spilled!

I'm so excited! Even more reason to try and move closer to the west. Questions...hmmm.... Maybe what color blanket would you like? :-)

Megan said...

Congratulations! So, of course it's none of my business, but since you opened it up for questions... I'm curious if you are hoping for a future #6 to keep #5 company or if you're content with this one getting to be the lone caboose. =)

Woo Hoo! It's so fun to have a baby with older kids around. I'm so happy for your family.

Tara said...

So exciting! Congrats to the whole family.

Congrats! I hate you for no morning sickness, but love you for having another one. IF you kids do make a comment about your body size, at least you have an excuse. I have had many comments when I wasn't pregnant.

Congratulations!!! No questions on my end, except, when am I going to see you guys? We need to see you guys over Christmas break, if possible. I'm excited for you and your family.

Oh, and there's just about 5 years between my first 2, it's actually been nice.

Tressa said...

Thanks, everyone.

Megan, I would love a #6 to keep #5 company, but don't think that one's gonna fly with the hubby. (I was actually kinda hoping for twins so that that problem could be solved!)

Sis,

A pale yellow/cream color sounds pretty to me....

Melissa said...

Congrats again! I am so excited for you guys.

Susan said...

Congratulations! There are 5 1/2 year sbetween my two girls. While it wasn't what I would have chosen, it does work out well. I had all my dr appts during school and once Robyn was born I was able to take it easy during kindergarten time. Best wishes.
