It's a GIRL!


So I'm a bit overdue in announcing some huge news for the Mer Show family...  we're having another baby!!  For those of you doing the math, that means that Patrick will be 22 months older than the new baby.  I've heard that little kids that are close in age are really, super close, so I'm really hopefully that I'm cooking up Patrick's future BFF.  :)

And yesterday, we found out it's going to be a baby GIRL!  I knew it all along, because I've been much sicker this pregnancy, but it sort of hit my lovely hubby like a brick.  He had in his head that it was a boy, and had visualized two little boys running around this house some day, so he really believed that we were going to find some boy parts in that sonogram.  No dice!  But of course, he's thrilled and excited about this surprise!

For those of you that knew me growing up... or in my teenage years... or my 20s... this might possibly concern you a bit.  LOL  I was a bit of a curious, rambunctious, rule-breaking, assertive young thing that definitely drew outside the lines.  (But hey, I worked it all out and became a productive member of society, right?!)  I'm pretty determined to use all the lessons I learned to teach my little girl (and Patrick, too) how to avoid some of the mistakes I learned, but how to be unafraid to be who they really are, and to concentrate on being kind to others and making good decisions.  :)

Like I said, I was really sick in the beginning of this pregnancy, which also explains my lack of updates here on this blog.  I apologize!  Every waking moment that I wasn't at work (working my tail off), running after my hell-on-wheels toddler (he is so stinkin' hilarious these days, but requires a lot of energy to keep up with), I was pretty much passed out on the couch.  I'm feeling a lot better these days - energy is back, for the most part, and my appetite has returned, for the most part, and I think I'm back to myself again.

I'm sure that Sheridan is glad about that - he's really had to step up to the plate the last few months to take care of me, Patrick, the house, and our life.  I'm so grateful to have married a wonderful person, so full of love, and such a great father.  There's no way I could be a pregnant, full-time working mommy of a rambunctious toddler, with a house to keep, crazy dog to manage, and ever get any rest at all...   BIG KUDOS to my husband for hanging in there with me through this crazy pregnancy!  I love you, babe!

I promise not to let so much time lapse between future postings.  I think I'm getting back to normal, and you guys need to hear all about it.  ;)

Love, Mer
