OOOOOOOOOHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SARAH!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND ADAM!!! How excited you must be! I can't wait to hear all of your follow ups. I hope we talk soon, but in the meantime take good care of yourself- though you seem to have already mastered motherhood, (and in good spirits, ironically!). I'm so happy for you! You just brought sunshine to my oh so dreary, rainy day.

Congratulations! Me too, due March 22. I've decided that it is really, really important for me not to make any drastic, life altering decisions for the next few months since I'm pretty much guaranteed to think completely differently about anything in a few hours. Especially if I'm semi-hysterical and crying. Just wait it out.

Silly Marie said...

Awesome! I will now have to refrain from coveting your child bearing-ness. Extremely exciting.

Suzie Petunia said...

Can I plagerize your post and use it as my own? I've been trying to figure out a not-too-boring way to make my own announcement. April 7. How about you?

Mumsy said...

Knocked up? By your good husband? Is that really the term for my darling daughter's blessed condition? Honestly Sarah, I need to come out and wash your little mouth out with some of my Savon de Marseille!

You'll never get away from me, move to California though you might...

Take good care of your precious self. We are so happy for you and especially glad that little Penny will soon be out of the constant limelight and parental scrutiny. She needs someone to share the spotlight with. Remember when Poppie and I took you to England and France as Verukah, the Only Child Spoiled and Coddled by her Parents? Your comment at the end of that trip was that you were glad not to really be an only...

Wooooohhoooooooo! Yay Sarah and Adam! So excited for the three of you. As I've gotten older, I've definitely decided that my sister is one of the best things ever, so I'm thrilled for little Penny. Congrats again and again, my dear.

Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!! You two make cute kids, so I'm pleased you've decided to make more. :) The world could certainly benefit from as many Benac/Flakes as possible. Congratulations!

Rock on, sister! I'm so excited for you and Adam and Penny. It will be super fun to have another little one in The Forest Glen. I hope this doesn't mean you're going to move!

Adrienne said...

OMG AAHHHHHH!

Yay!

Torchness said...

Holy moly. Snaps for you!

Kristine said...

This is the best first post I've ever read in the morning!

Congratulations on your little Nickel!

Foxy said...

Foxy & I send our congrats! Huzzah!

Adrienne (with schapps on the brain, evidently) said...

Okay, when I read that post above, I could have SWORN it said "Schapps for you!" and I thought, wait, she's Mormon AND pregnant, that has to be contraindicated...

Brooke Jean said...

Congrats and good luck with the infomercials! It leaves me no hope since I cry during infomercials for no reason - except their pure awesomeness, of course!

Samantha said...

Ah, now I think I can't use this idea! William and I always joke around with each other that that's how we're going to make the big announcement whenever that happens. But now it feels used. Way to go STEALING IT!

By the way congratulations! Can you post a picture of yourself b/c I'm not sure which sister you are, now that I'm admitting it. There are so many of you! I have an idea but I'm not sure. Maybe there are pics of you already on here, I'll check. CONGRATS!

Sorry to ruin your fun, Samantha! If you need a visual to distinguish me from my many other sisters check out our photo album:

I'm due around April 5th so Suzie and I are going to be going through a lot of the same junk. Congrats to you as well, Gina! I hear you on the no major decisions thing. I'm hanging on the verge of insanity and just keep telling myself to wait until the blessed 2nd trimester to diagnose any major mental illnessess. Hopefully all my symptons will have disapated by then :)

Thanks everyone for all the well-wishes - I haven't puked yet and am keeping my fingers crossed. We are obviously really excited and had been hoping for this for a while. I'll try to limit the pregnancy ranting on the blog but just be warned - it's more likely than not to happen.

Lucky you. Count it as a GREAT blessing. My husband and I have longed for this day for 3 1/2 years and we're still longing. If it DOESN'T happen, it's the saddest day on earth.

I am not bitter, but truly happy for you and everyone who can and wants to bring a baby into the world. I am happy for the baby too. What a deal to be your baby and Penny's little sibling.

God bless.
