big news/little bump

Lately I've been taking some pretty long breaks from the blog. (The longest I've ever taken.) But all for a good reason. There's going to be a new babe in this family, and we could not be more excited. We're as ready as we'll ever be. Little Lo is not so little anymore; she'll be five by the time this new baby gets here. (I'm due on Valentine's Day!) And she is pretty stoked about the idea of being a big sis. I've been getting hit a little harder this time around with the sickness, and I had forgotten how pregnancy can instantly change your 'normal' into something quite different in a matter of days. I'm super close to being through my first trimester, and everything is feeling so familiar ... I want to nap all of the time, my favorite jeans are too tight to button, I eat completely bizarre things and can get sick at the drop of a hat. But I'm not complaining. It's totally, completely, absolutely worth it. We are blessed.
