Double the Trouble

Baby CampbellIn an attempt to further combat our increasing tolerance to the cuteness levels in our lives, we decided to up the ante. So on or around July 4th 2008, we’re upgrading to toddler, dog, and INFANT. Simon says that he wants a sister, and he wants her to be named “Pretty Girl”. We’ll take whatever God provides and be ridiculously happy, boy or girl.

I’m so glad that I’m finally able to share this news, as sitting on it was killing me. We’re really, really happy, of course. Although Kate’s happiness is somewhat tempered by the crippling “morning” sickness that has accompanied this pregnancy. Let’s go with All Day and All Night Sickness (ADANS) from now on, shall we? Because that’s what it is. It’s been a bit better the last week or so, but Kate basically had to write off December and half of November to being crippled by nausea.

And in an only slightly related observation, compare the sonogram above to Simon’s 8-week sonogram here. Either technology has come a long way in the last 2 years, or our OB got some nice new equipment.

  1. We, on the other side of the street, are THRILLED at the news that Simon will have a brother or sister very soon! Peter votes for July 15, his birthday and also feast of St. Bonaventure. I told him that no woman in her right mind wants to be pregnant in the summer one day later than the due date if she doesn’t have to be.

    Many good wishes to you all!
