Coming this Fall...

This may be old news to some of you, but it's high time that I announce this formally on my blog.  (Cue the movie preview man voice:)  Coming this fall to a Where It's Green family near you...a baby unlike any other to come to this family...

That's right, this fall we're expecting baby #3 and it's going to be a girl!  Special thanks to J for doing the artwork on this.  In case you can't tell, that's me on the left holding baby girl's hand.  And even though it looks like I have a huge bum, I'm actually wearing a dress in this picture.  I think.

Now, I've got to be honest with you guys.  I'm super excited about having a girl, but I'm also a bit nervous.  After living in all-boy world for the past nearly-five-years, I'm not really sure what to do with a girl.  And our playroom is already pretty darn packed with toys for boys.  I'm hoping she really likes tools and cars and superheroes.  Now to answer the usual questions:

I'm due toward the beginning of November.

I'm feeling fine, though I was definitely sicker toward the beginning with this one.

J is so excited to have a new baby in the family, especially a baby sister.  C is just confused why I can't just take the baby out of my tummy right now and show her to him.  And he thinks he has a baby in his tummy too.

Peter is excited too.  And a little nervous since he knows even less about baby girls than I do.

I will post some pregnancy pictures as soon as I actually start to look pregnant and not just awkward.  You see, I carry all my babies really low.  So low that I never get that cute little pregnant bump thing going on--I just sort of get thicker somewhere around my waist area.  Oh, how I envy the cute pregnant bump, but I'll take what I can get.  It's a very small price to pay for a healthy baby.

We are so excited!
