I know. I KNOW. It’s been far, far too long for an update from me. But I can explain. I’ve been working on a very special, top secret, long-term project, and it’s been taking up just about all of my time and energy. While I’m still in the midst of it, I’m at a point where I can reveal a few details to you. Are you ready?
Are you sure?
Okay. Here goes…
I’m having a baby!
Yes, friends, this lady has a bun in the oven. (Above is the latest paparazzi shot of the little bugaloo; looks like it’s already developing a good-sized noggin, just like its mama.)
My husband and I continue to be equal parts shocked and overjoyed. How we found out is another story for another time, best appreciated over many drinks, preferably of the bubbly kind. We’ll have a lot to celebrate this spring, so you’d best get those bottles chilled and ready. Just put a big ole straw in mine, because I’m gonna be THIRSTY.
Due to my key role in this ongoing “project,” I may not be blogging with frequency over the coming months, but I’ll be sure to update you when I can. In the meantime, I (or should I say “we,” given the new addition to my body/brainspace) thank you for your patience during this latest chapter in my ever-crazy life story.
SO happy for you, Kara! What a lovely bugaloo you have there! (I called my elder daughter “bug” for quite a while when she was an infant, but she eventually became “bunny” instead.) I will GLADLY toast to your and your baby’s health!
Thanks so much, Kelly! : )
OMGosh!!!!! So excited for you.
Thanks, Mona! Yes, OMGosh!!!!! has definitely been my reaction these days!
Oh my. OH MY! Joy (and hopefully not too much morning sickness.) I would be happy to supply you with eggs for egg salad (one of the only things that I could eat due to the aforementioned morning sickness.) We always thought that babies at that stage look like Mr. Peanut. Just photoshop a hat on and you’ll see 🙂
Hardly any m/s, Terry. I’ve been very lucky. : )
I teared up. So happy for you both. Life will get even crazier, but know you’re up for every wild second.
Many thanks! : )
Yes Yes Yes! It was great to see you last week cousin. We are all so thrilled for you! xxoo
Thanks, lady! (And FYI, Scott and I ordered pizza as soon as we got home on Friday. Thought of you.)
I am so happy for you both! That is one very lucky little baby. Congratulations a million times over!
Thanks so much, Carrie! : )
Wonderful news! You’re on a fabulous, new journey now. Congratulations!
Thanks, David! If there’s one thing I can say about my life, it’s that it’s never boring! : )
So very happy for you!!
Thanks so much! : )
We are beyond thrilled!! Uncle Billy said “it’s about time” you know his sarcastic self. Sending much love to you both and little bug! Aunt Lyn
A-hahaha! Not like I’ve had some other stuff to deal with over these past few years! xoxo
Congratulations! What an amazing project (my bugaboo is now 16….parenthood is infinitely enlightening, humbling and joyful).
Thanks, Kellye! : )
Very excited for you two, Kara! And I cannot wait for all the stories I’m quite sure will be born along this wonderful project…. Congratulations!
Thanks, KK! Yes, I already have a few stories already collected. More to come! : )
Kara, wonderful news. Many blessings and much joy during this precious time. Congrats! (Love the “addition of body/brainspace”!)
Many thanks! : )
Congratulations Kara! Your little bun will certainly provide you for lots of book idea!
Thanks, Ann! I hope so! : )
Oh, Kiki! I am so happy for all of you.
p.s. the Gruet is already chilling in the fridge……
I knew I could count on you, Bink! xoxo
I’m teary with joy! Such happy, happy news. Congratulations ~ I can already tell the little one is going to be a reader. 😀
Thanks so much, ML! : )
