A Special Announcement

In my last post, I have dropped some hints that there were going to be big changes happening in 2012 for me. I guess now would be a good time to reveal one of the biggest changes that will be happening for me about now. So world, let me show you something I’ve been hard at work on:

Yup. You’ve got it. World, meet Baby Boothe. I am sure this is only the first of many occasions of Baby Boothe Exploitation for your viewing pleasure.

Didn’t I promise you some big surprises of 2012??? AND THIS IS ONLY ONE! 🙂 (Probably the biggest, but come on, it’s a good one!)

(Side note: By the way, if you don’t think this is “hard at work,” then you’ve never been pregnant. It’s totally been kicking my sorry trash. Teaching a bunch of middle schoolers is less exhausting than being pregnant, so you can imagine the combination of both has been a blast. Oh, and speaking of my middle schoolers, they don’t know yet, so if you know them DON’T TELL THEM YET! I am gonna do it soon. Promise. Awkward aside is now done.)

All right. Let’s get some of the FAQs out of the way before we progress further with this topic.

How old is Baby Boothe?

Baby Boothe has entered into the fourth month of existence. We are safely into the second trimester (yay!) and so far, everything appears fine.

Are you happy about this?

Jared and I are both ecstatic about this and have wanted it for a while, but things were complicated with some of my other health issues. Knowing this should help us avoid the question “Was this planned?” Which I have been asked. A few times.

Is Baby Boothe a boy or a girl?

We don’t know. We probably won’t know until late February. And we are absolutely finding out, because my anxiety doesn’t need any big surprises when I am too excited planning for Baby Boothe’s arrival.

Do you want a boy or a girl?


When does Baby Boothe make his/her grand appearance?

Expected arrival date is July 6. I’m seriously hoping Baby Boothe isn’t on some sort of “Mormon Standard Time” system which could prevent him/her from arriving on time, as I don’t think this summer will be much fun if last summer was any indication.

Are you showing yet?

Yes, I am, and no, you may not see yet.

  1. Congrats Elisabeth!! (I’m pregnant too! Only 10 weeks, so haven’t told everyone, but thought I’d share in your news – You are RIGHT about it being hard work!) So happy for you and Jared!

  2. I am so so excited for you guys! You guys will be wonderful parents and I can’t wait to see pictures of your child. He/She will be gorgeous I am sure. Also I asked 100 billion million questions to my OBGYN, even super weird and super embarrassing ones, so if you ever have a question that you don’t feel like calling your doctor about but you want an answer to right that second please email, text, call, facebook, or blog me. I love you guys like crazy!

  3. Congratulations! What fantastic news. I can’t wait to hear more. I’ll keep you in my thoughts, since I remember teaching middle school and how tiring it was to teach without carrying around extra weight. You’ll be such a great mom/parent/everything else. Love!

  4. I’m so, so happy and Jared! (and I’m so glad you’re finding out if it’s a boy or girl! I don’t understand those people that want to be surprised!!!)

  5. What a wonderful surprise. Your dad called to tell me and he was elated!!!! I am too but I am so sorry you are so far away!!!

  6. Well, you are now going to have to change the subtitle of your blog! If your life ever qualified as boring, it certainly can’t now! Big Congratulations and I can’t wait to find out in Feb!
