The last time I put up a blog post was on July 23rd, one day after my 30th birthday. About two weeks later, we discovered yet another bun in the oven. Because, of course we did.
This particular bun, we found out this morning, is a girl bun. Yay! Girls!! Buns!!!
(Buns. Dang it. Now I'm hungry. Pregnancy is annoying. Do we have any good bread?)
I know that 20 weeks is a bit late for the public "I'm pregnant!" announcement, but, you guys, it's the third baby.
WE are really excited about her, but I'm not expecting the general public* to work up the same amount of excitement that they did for the first baby, or even for the second. I equate it to someone who's running their third marathon. Or getting their third degree in something really smart. Or maybe getting their third promotion at work. It's not that it's not awesome, it is! It's totally AWESOME! Go you!! But, dude, we get it. That's what you're into. It's your thing now.
In fact, other than to our family, I don't know if we really made ANY formal announcements this time around. Maybe a few email announcements, but for the most part, I've just worked it into conversation with friends when I've see them. This has been particularly entertaining, and I actually think I've enjoyed it more than the typical "drumroll please" announcements.
For instance, while having a phone date, one friend asked, "Why are you not blogging? You moved. The LEAST you can do if offer me frequent updates on your life." So, I got to reply, "I'm knocked up again. Hows THAT for an update." Another (very very very sweet and wonderful and favorite) friend asked during a playdate "You look great! Have you lost weight?" And I said, "Nope, I'm 17 weeks pregnant, so I'm actually even BIGGER than normal. But I love you forever. Let's hang out every day."
So, whether this is old news or new for you, let me recap:
1. Baby girl on the way! Slated to arrive late March/early April! (Due dates are for the birds. That 2-3 week range is as specific as I care to be.)
2. We're excited! Yay! The fifth Williamson cometh!
3. I wrote a blog post! YAAAAAY! I'M AMAZING!
So, while I'm too lazy to upload an ultrasound picture today, I hereby promise a picture-laden post later this week. Get excited.
* If you are in my immediate or extended family, you are not counted as a member of the general public and are expect to act thrilled, shocked, and unbelievably excited at all mention of things baby. Just to be clear.
