Please Excuse Me...

for the lack of superior blog post lately! For the constant lies....okay maybe not lies but excuses. The lack of keeping up with the world around me. The sneaking around!  The sleepiness that has hit me due to my mind racing. Oh and the ear to ear smile that is on my face.  The overjoyed excitement that comes out of no where.  Or that no this is not real....how can this be real feeling?  The extreme thankfulness that I currently feel.

I just had to put all of that out here!  I feel like the past few weeks my life has been derailed.  That I haven't quite been myself to you....my wonderful people!  I have just been randomly blogging here and there nothing to crazy exciting....other than our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Well, as I sit here at 3:40 am on June 29...I just had to ask for your forgiveness.  Actually to go back to the "not able to sleep due to mind racing"...that is what is happening here.  Yes, I know this post is really on JULY 5!  But that is the joyfulness of blogger, being able to schedule blogs whenever you want.  Oh gosh I digress...which seems to also be an issues I have these days!  My lack of focus on anything has well, gone out the DOOR!

Why have all these things been happening to me?  Well, there is a very simple answer for that and I just have to clear the air.  The problem with clearing the air is....it has to be done is steps.  Finally I am ready for the next step...which is telling you!  Okay maybe I wont tell you but rather show you.  Show you the reason for all this craziness!

WE ARE GOING TO BE PARENTS!!

I feel so blessed, excited, and overjoyed.  Chris is beyond happy....he too cannot believe that our next adventure as a family is here.  Although we did plan to begin this step...knowing it is real is well, so surreal! I am so thankful to have this news OUT to the WORLD!  As stated above...we had to do things right.  You know wait to confirm that Baby R would make it through those first few 12 critical weeks.  Also we wanted to inform our parents first and in person.  Thus the reason I can now SHOUT FROM THE ROOF TOPS!!!  We will have told Chris' parents by this point.  

Again I am still in a bit of shock, but so ready to meet little Baby R!  Which stinks since Baby R is not due until January!  Although these first 12 weeks seemed like forever, it was mostly because none of our friends knew.  Not being able to share such exciting news can make a person CrAzY!  Promise...I have been there the past 12 weeks.  I feel like all I have done is sneak around and avoid.  Thankfully it has been summer for the past 4 weeks...thus making it a little easier to avoid my friends.  Okay I have given you a ton of information...maybe I should just let it all sink in for a moment.  Don't worry, I'll post better details on Baby R's beginnings in the next couple of days.  Just writing this post has really cleared my mind.  Also it has given me some relief from my omitting of information lately!  Now that it is oh 4:30 a.m. and Chris has left for the gym...I'm going to try and sleep a little more, if that is possible! AHHH we are going to have a baby~~~so exciting!
