Oh. . . um, hi there.

So - as it turns out - I’ve been a little M.I.A. lately.
But I have a good excuse:
I’VE BEEN DEAD!
.
.
Err, um. . . enduring the first trimester of pregnancy.
Same dang thing.
.
.
And oh my goodness, you guys, I’ve been sick.
So, so very sick.
So much so that I have labeled this my worst pregnancy EVER!
As far as first trimester: this one’s been the worst, then Brynlee, then my second miscarriage, then my first miscarriage, then Jace.
{In case you were wondering.}
.
.
But then on Friday I had a doctor’s appointment.
And, my favorite part, we heard a heartbeat!!
I immediately declared it the best sound ever.
And then, for a moment, I forgot about all the sickness.
It suddenly all seemed worth it.
The nurse and I celebrated.
{Her anxiety about giving me bad news again was very apparent;
I think she was praying for a heartbeat just as hard as I was.}
And then I texted Spencer who was home with the kiddos.
Heard a heartbeat!!!
And he texted back
YEAH!!!!!!
I could hear his sigh of relief.
.
.
And then - just like that - the party was over.
And I threw up all over Dr. Cox’s brand new office.
It was awesome.
In a very sarcastic way.
.
.
I’m hoping in the next few days I will be able to look at the computer screen again
without getting nauseous.
I’ve missed my silly lil’ blog.
But until then,
XOXO.
