Long Time No See!

Well! I'm sure that the two readers I have probably assumed the blog had died and been buried but the truth is, blogging just takes a much lower place on the priority list when you have 2 kids and a job. Speaking of kids and lack of time, we will soon have even less of it because we're having another baby! See? There's lots to catch up on. So, let me share with you some of the goings on in the past little while:

Yes, we are having a baby! #3 for us and most likely the last one. I'm due January 20th and I'll be 17 weeks on Monday so that means the baby is about the size of an onion, sweet potato, turnip or pear depending on what website you're looking at. We haven't gotten in touch with anyone yet about prenatal care but we know we need to because we're interested in finding out the gender of the baby this time and can't schedule our own ultrasounds.

The other thing is that babies take up room not just in your home but in your car so that leads me to the next news: we're getting a new car! Well, a new to us car. We're getting one of those dreaded minivans. Well, dreaded to me. Adam seems quite keen on the whole thing actually. I will admit, the one we took for a weekend long test drive was spacious and I didn't hit my head on the visor once! Plus there's lots of extra room for all the gear that children seem to naturally be born with. Adam and Mya are gone to pick it up right now and she's quite excited to be able to pick her own seat.

As I mentioned above, I'm working again! It's the same job I had before and it started out as me just filling in for the summer but we've decided it would be best for me to stay on and work towards getting 600 hours to qualify for maternity leave. I'm fortunate that I have an awesome boss who is understanding and flexible! By the end of this month I should be about a third of the way towards my 600 hours...yay!

Alright, that's all the blog time I can afford today. I can't promise I'll be back regularly but I will be back! I might even post some belly pics, or pictures of our new ride!
