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.
