Yes, it's early in the morning and I'm sitting behind my computer...blogging away!
Did you all miss me? I sure hope so.
I took a small break and am glad to be back. I also am glad to be back to my old self again. I went through about six to seven weeks of what I like to call physical and emotional wreckage on my poor body.
This above snapshot being the reason.
For any mother who has experienced pregnancy and gotten the dreaded
morning, all day sickness, my heart goes out to you. No, not the mothers who smell chicken and get a little headache. I'm talking about the women who put the toothbrush in their hand first thing a.m. and start dry heaving. The women who if their house catches fire...please just don't burn the couch I'm on and the blanket that's covering me. And for the women who just can't function without their stomachs reminding them that life just isn't fun at this very moment...or two...or seven weeks!
But all of that goodness behind me, I am elated beyond elated to be welcoming another Hayes to our family. I'm elated God has chosen ME to take care of such a precious gift...thank You!
Steve and I are determined it's a girl. Why? Because the Chinese Birth Chart says so, that's why. And the chart was correct for the other four. Yes, we aren't even entertaining the notion that this baby is a boy. Even though we do like the name Johnny if a surprise were to come our way. But instead, I'd like you all to meet Miss Lily Hayes. She will be gracing us with her presence on or shortly before Christmas. I know. Christmas you say? With the 28th being my exact due date, it's going to be a real nail biter I'm almost certain. Since I refuse to have any form of induction, herbal teas are useless, jumping on a trampoline only hurts my northern and southern regions, and since castor oil is completely out of the question, the 25th is looking like it might likely happen. Guess we'll just have to spoil Miss Lily a little extra. Or let her have a birthday party in June or July to offset her parents' very poor planning, or lack of.
I have turned our privacy mode to the OFF position. Why? Well, because I received a lot of groans and moans regarding creating a Google account, having to have a password, not getting the invite I sent them in the first place, etc. I at first was, "Well tough. Figure it out." Then my heart softened, actually no, that's not the truth. What actually happened is I lost my readers. And that my dear friends/family, can't happen. So to lure you back into following our family again, I have made it as simple as one click. You're welcome. :)
I'm glad to be back just as I'm sure you're glad to have me back. Let me stress one thing though:
I LOVE, WANT, AND NEED YOUR COMMENTS.
Seriously, I do. And as a good blogger does (because I've done my homework on this) I respond to your comments, because I care. :)
