Happy Father's Day


This year for father's day I decided to give Jeff a very special gift...another baby. It's true, I'm pregnant again. I realize it's unorthodox to announce a pregnancy this early, but I'm going to need a lot of help and support in the coming weeks and months. Some of you may remember my first pregnancy and how difficult it was, definitely the most challenging 9 months of my life. I suffered from horrible morning sickness, plus depression and anxiety. I literally barely made it through. But I'm convinced that this pregnancy is going to be better. I have a great support system here in Texas and an active toddler to keep me busy. I would still appreciate your phone calls end emails (just to make sure I haven't fallen asleep with my head in the toilet). Oh man, what have I gotten myself into? Just kidding. Jeff and I truly are thrilled to add another member to our family. Bring on the morning sickness, cravings, emotions, and back pain!

I know partially how you feel - I was really sick when I was pregnant, too. It can be really overwhelming. Please call if I can do anything for you. I'm happy to take Lexi any time you need a break.
