I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

Hacienda Hoffman

Will get a little more crowded come December, provided everything keeps going well. Yeah, Bean is going to be a big sister...had my first o/b appointment yesterday and saw the little frantically beating heart and fuzzy blob that not even the most affectionate parent-to-be would say looks like a "baby", but the youngest Hoffman is in there. Which is always a relief to see, to know that *something* is causing my constant gnarliness.

Oh, it's been lovely. Actually, it's not been as bad as some friends I have talked to, but it's definitely been enough to turn me into a reduced version of myself. I'm really hoping the next few weeks start bringing some relief. That being said, there have been some rather amusing morning sickness moments. To wit:

-- throwing up, loudly, in the upstairs bathroom while Bean was in her high chair in the next room. Laughing. At me. Or at least at the funny noises Mummy was making!

--having to pee and then realizing I had to throw up. I grabbed Bean's training potty and used that. It has a "royal flourish" that applauds you when you deposit something into the basin. I was applauded for yakking. Festively!

--holding a conversation with Gene last night while my head was hanging over the sink. All I could think was, "well, we're definitely married, and this is definitely #2". Random!

That's another thing--it's so. So. SO much easier with #2. Not necessarily physically, but mentally and emotionally. All the insane fears and anxieties I had with Bean are pretty much not there right now, and all I am concerned about is who is going to stay with her when we need to go to the hospital and how is she going to deal with a little interloper sucking up much of Mummy's time. I definitely feel more mellow in general.

So that's part of why I have been a little lax in posting recently. I'm hoping that in a few more weeks I will be more Heathery.

Congratulations, of course! I second everything you left on my blog! :)

You can (virtually) hold my hand, since you've been through it before, and it's all new to me!

Congratulations to the Hoffmans!!! Despite never having gone through such experiences, I found your descriptions thoroughly entertaining. Wait, check that, I probably found your descriptions so entertaining b/c I've never been through it! Sorry! Fantastic news, though!

WOO HOO! Great news, Heather. I'm sure Ella is looking forward to having someone to push around! (Literally and figuratively.) I certainly hope the worst of it is over and that you can enjoy the remaining pregnancy months being spoiled and pampered - and eating whatever you want! And best of all, come December you get the best Christmas Present ever! Congratulations!!!

Congratulations! I hope that things settle down soon for you. The first few weeks can be so hard.
