Busy, Busy, Busy

I hope that everyone can forgive my blogging absence - it seems like every time I sit down at the computer to blog, I remember an email that needs to be sent, an activity I need to plan, or a calendar I need to update. About three months ago I was called as the Young Women's President at my church, and since then my computer has a whole new use. It's a calling that I love SO, SO SOOOO much, but one that keeps me very busy.

On top of that, we are dealing with Rob's news. Apparently, he's 16 weeks pregnant! We're really excited, and expecting baby #4 to arrive late December or early January. We can't wait to find out what he's having - and have already started discussing names. Here's a little view of what's going on inside his tummy (with the exception of the anatomy - that's a LITTLE different in his case. We're still working out the kinks on that one).


And here's a view of the outside. If you ask me - he's showing a little earlier than normal. At first we thought it might be twins, but after a couple of ultrasounds and hearing the heartbeat - it looks like it's just one gigantic baby.


And don't even TRY to tell me that your pregnant husband doesn't own a mesh tank top.



(Okay, so maybe I'm actually the one carrying the baby...but it IS his mesh tank top. I SWEAR.)

ROB IS HAVING A BABY!!! (And you too!) Yippee-ki-yay!!! Congrats to the two of you!!! Keep us posted on Rob's/your progress and morning sickness and name possibilities and acquisitions of larger and roomier mesh tank tops!!! Hoozah!

Before I finished reading your blog, I was thinking that the more outrageous news was that Rob was wearing a mesh tank top. I am now certain that men naturally have no fashion sense, of course I thought that Dan's homemade "I Love NY" tank top was bad.
