My Current Project


This should explain my lack of blogging. My lack of creating. My lack of updates. My lack of finishing stuff around the house. My lack of getting dressed...oh wait you can't see that can you?

So my new current project (Bean, we shall call it for now) was not on our original list of to-do's. Bean was put on the list quite without planning and to the utter shock and surprise of us the list makers.

For those of you putting 2 and 2 together...Surprise Bean plus 30 days in a hotel equals a pretty miserable Momma. We found out about Bean about a week into our hotel stay. Smells have not been my friend at all this pregnancy...it has been a completely new experience for me. So a month in a hotel, a clean one at that, was too much to handle. There are a lot of smells that get trapped in a hotel room. Ugh, dry heave just conjuring up the memory...

...breathe....

Ok, I am back. Needless to say I still get a little queasy just when I drive by that hotel.

I have been the sickest I have ever been. Almost constant sour stomach and nausea. Nausea leads to migraines and migraine leads to more nausea...you get the gist.

So friends, baking our New Bean in my oven is taking almost everything I have. It is hard work growing a human. The drill is something very familiar to a lot of you. Exhaustion and sickness. So I know you understand with my lack of doing stuff. Typing this as we speak has made me drowsy enough to take a 2 hour nap...hahaha...yawn...haha....snore...

ehem...I am up.

Bean is going to be taking up most of my time for a little while. Which is fine, because that is how it should be, right????

After the shock, Hubby and I have adjusted to the idea. We are ready to welcome another little one into our home and family. We told our Little Men last night.

Littlest didn't really comprehend, but when I asked him if he would be okay with a new baby he nodded his head. Middle and Oldest were beyond excited. Oldest declared, "Now we will have a sister". We both quickly had to remind him the baby could very well be another brother. They were both okay with that too.

You might be wondering the completion day of our Bean project. The estimation is March 28. Just days before Littlest turns 3....HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Yep, I am about 13 weeks. Only 27 more to go!

How exciting Larissa! I'm sorry you've been so sick :(. What fun it will be to see another version, boy or girl! I am glad I'm done, but I still think hearing about new babies is the best news in the world!

WOW congrats having 4 is blast and soooo easy compared to 3. strange enouh I think once you get to 4 choas is just second nature. Youre gonna laugh at me tohugh. I think I dug a little to deep into your little ink blot. to me baby resembles a little dino baby with his cute little dino mouth open and ready to chomp something. seriously the cutest baby dino picture ive ever seen. LOL lets cross our fingers baby dino is a girl wouldnt that be a treat...if not I will say having 4 scrumptious little boys is spectacular beyond words. I LOVE it. good luck and rest rest rest.

PS. thanks for the lose tooth advice. one night after football practice Tyler begged me to not give up and to wiggle the tooth lose. I spent 30 minutes no joke twisting, pulling, swinging, and cursing that darn tooth out. but it cameout. yeah for me. I did it.

Abbie said...

Heidi Dyk said...

Yay, congrats to you and your sweet family! Hope you feel better soon, friend. Hugs to you. :-)

p.s. I LOVE your new home! Lucky you!

JasonDebbie said...

Ha! I totally understand your pain! I got an extremely surprising pregnancy and was also sooo sick. Not actually barfing all the time, just feeling like I was about to barf all the time. And the smells were bad too--i had just gotten a new perfume when I started getting sick and I couldnt wear it cuz any perfume made me want to puke. Then after the baby, every time I smelled that perfume the nausea immediately came back--I had to throw the perfume away. Happened with a lotion too. But.....its all worth it, congratulations!

Kinsey Pistorius said...

very cool! I think it's a girl because you are so sick and you feel differently. I was sickest with my girl but afraid to say with each pregnancy, you just get more tired I think. But tell Spencer congrats too! can't wait to see a picture of this little BEAN!!!

ColleenandKendra said...

Well hooray! So excited. Thinking Mr. Oldest is right on point. All that sickness. Hmmmmmm....sounds rather girly to me! Congrats to you all. Good luck, stay sane, get rest, and grow that cute little Bean!

Whitney said...

Congtats! That is so exciting!

Tanya said...

Great news for you! Congratulations! Definitely a front-burner project!

Stockhoff Family said...

Finally you don't have to worry about your DAD or I (but this time YOUR DAD) telling half the free world. Wooohooo!!!!! Love you

Mark and Sarah +2 said...

We're very excited for you! Congrats! I'm sure that was a big surprise but a great one. Good thing you didn't get rid of your stuff. Get some rest and feel better. Well be awaiting your updates whenever you get around to it :).

Lacey said...

Congrats, congrats!! So happy for you, and for Bean, what a lucky little bean to get to call you mommy! I wish you the best and hope that you start feeling better soon. You make beautiful little beans so I am sure that in the end it will all be worth it. Much love.

P.S. your house looks amazing! What a dream!

Kreatita said...

Congratulations with your little wonder in your belly!

The Gilbert Family said...

I am so utterly delighted for you!! Can't wait to hear more over the next 27 weeks!! Love ya good luck

Carmen said...

Congratulations! My DIL has a 2 yr old she calls 'little bean', and a 10 month old that she calls 'weensy beansy'...you're in good company! Hope you feel better soon and can enjoy the pregnancy a little more! Gotta go...I have some little beans arriving at the door any moment! :))

Little Bitty Things said...

Congratulations! I'm having trouble with smells myself this time around...but that's not abnormal for me! I'm hoping the extreme nausea this time around means little girl...but at 14 weeks myself, I've finally figured out that I just shouldn't cook. If I do the cooking, then I can't do any eating...my husband hasn't gotten behind this plan 100% yet...about me not cooking anymore that is!

Karen said...

Yay for number four!! And Bean is a pretty cute name -- how nice to have that debate already over with! ;) I hope you do indeed take a rest from the optional parts of your wonderfully frenzied life and treat yourself to some slow-down. I hope life is improving now that the hotel is just a memory. I am selfishly so glad you live where you live now!! Kristi is just up the road which means we will travel that road from time to time. Yippee!

Holly Wilcox said...

Well... I say, perfect timing!!! That is awesome! Congrats!

Nyree said...

YAY!!!! I am so excited for you! No matter what the bean is, I know they'll be gorgeous, because I don't expect anything else from you. Good Luck on a very good and healthy pregnancy.
I always thought that morning sickness would ease up with each kid, not for me, worse with each one. Could be that way for you...better yet, you're little miss is on her way!! If that's the case, yay for you and your men... and me (then you will have some awesomeley amazing girl ideas!! Hooray!!) Love ya

MollyMJ said...
