with a happy ending

A real tragedy has occurred. I have a half eaten bag of candy corn in my pantry, and it's been there for months! (That is the tragedy.) I love candy corn, I eat it all year round. But it's particularly nice during Halloween because it's more abundant, and I swear it's softer. So starting in September I kick the candy corn eating up a notch. But this year, about the middle of October, I noticed I had no appetite for the stuff. I still tried, knowing how deep my love for it was, but the littlest bite would make me gag. And since Jeremy doesn't like it, there it sits, just waiting for me to want it again. I don't know when that will be, but I suspect it might happen in June--after another little one of these arrives:



(And that is not a tragedy, it is exciting!)

Yay! Sorry 'bout the bag of candy corn, though. ;) Your kids' baby pictures are so beautiful! I'm excited to see how darling baby #3 is!

By the way - any preference on gender?

I love the way you announced this. A little fun, a little tease, just fits you. I have to say AGAIN how excited I am that we are pregnant and due at the same time. Sooo glad to have a pregnancy buddy. Thanks for all your advice and for being such a support to me, even when you're going through it too! I can hardly wait to see what your baby #3 will look like, how can it be any cuter than Alexis and Tyler? But I'm sure it will be just as adorable.

Congratulations from me and Josh! Are you going to find out what the gender is or wait it out since you have one of each?
If your experience is anything similar to ours, there are three things that you should be prepared for with your third child.
First - your firstborn will amaze you with how much they adore the baby and with how great they are at helping. Second - your second born will be quite jealous, more than you expected. And third - you will have more laundry than you know what to do with. I think that I haven't been caught up on the laundry even once since our third has been born.
Congratulations again!!
(BTW - Josh and I were just saying that we should plan a night out with you guys one of these weeks.)

You are so clever with your post...I had to read it twice to make sure I understood correctly. That is so exciting, and now Holly keeps telling me that she wants a baby. Congrats to your family!
