Yup, it's true.

If you have seen me lately and thought, "Hmm, she's looking kind of pregnant-y...." then you would be right. Yes, I'm pregnant. I'm 13 weeks, and I'm already showing. Great.

And if you looked at Max, realizing that he's not even a year old, and thought, "Hmm, those two will be really close in age. I bet that they didn't plan it" then you would also be right. Max and the baby will be 17 months apart.

And if you were surprised, take that surprise times 100 and you will feel how we felt when we found out. :)

I am adjusting to this idea, and I'm actually kind of excited to have another baby. Babies are so sweet and innocent and pure, and they bring such a wonderful feeling into the house. I already feel peace and a little relief that I don't have to worry about deciding when to have another one; but I'm also still adjusting to the whole idea of having three children under 3.5. I know others have done it, and I'm sure we'll get through it, too.

I did not have morning sickness with Madi or Max, but have had it (all day) with this one, and am still in the thick of it. I'm starting to feel better longer, so I think the end is in sight.

If you are thinking, "Maybe she's having twins," then you would have the same thought that I shove out of my mind regularly :). Madi- who tends to be rather psychic when it comes to telling who has babies in their bellies- tells me on a regular basis that I have two sisters for her in my belly. However, she also just as frequently says that I have five babies in my belly, so then I feel relieved. :) She says the five babies are: Angelina Ballerina, Madi, Max (but he already came out, that's what she says), and some games. Yeah, I don't remember what #5 was. I think it was an animal.

So that's the news around here and part of the reason I've been really bad about posting, even though I'm done with finals.

Hey you two! So it's been a while. I'm glad we found your blog. Congrats on the pregnancy. Alli is expecting #3 in August, it was also a huge surprise for us. We didn't even realize she was pregnant until she was almost out of her first trimester. So we completely understand the surprise factor. We have a blog (or more my wife keeps our blog updated) if your ever bored you can come and check it out. danandalliralphs.blogspot.com

Wow! that is definitely some news - but Becca and I were 17 months apart and so close - we loved it. All your kids just might end up best friends. So are you done with school now - are you going to juggle it with 3? You are definitely a superwoman.

We are so happy for you! Would that be amazing if it were twins! I love it! This is wonderful news. I laughed so hard about your other posts too. Poor Max! What a trooper.

Congrats! I have to tell you my theory. I don't know if it is true, you'll have to let me know in a year. With babies that close together I think it would be much easier with #2 and #3 than #1 and #2. #1 is use to having the complete and undivided attention of both parents. So when #2 comes along her little world is turned upside down. However, when #3 makes his debut, #2 is already use to having your attention divided and he already has a playmate, #1. Sara and Blake are 19 months apart. The first year was hard, but it is getting better now that he is getting to be more independent and can play with Sara without losing an eye.

Again, congratulations!! I think it is wonderful. You of all people can handle three kids under 3.5 years. Come on, you guys thrive on busy-ness.
