This week’s Quick Takes is a little different. I’ve got a riddle for you:
— 1 —
— 2 —
— 3 —
— 4 —
— 5 —
— 6 —
So… have you figured it out yet?
— 7 —
Items one and two are brought to you by morning sickness and first-trimester fatigue. (And really, I could’ve shown you much worse pictures to represent that lovely, ONGOING stage. But I decided to be kind.)
Items three and four are brought to you by pregnancy cravings. (Yes, really. But no, not at the same time.)
Item five is brought to you by my boys’ bath toys. No, seriously – we’re pleased to announce that we’re expecting our third child!
Item six: Baby Walsh is due April 11, 2014. Which is just one day past my 35th birthday. (I was thisclose to escaping the “advanced maternal age” label.) To answer the obvious first question: Yes, I guess it would be kind of cool to share a birthday with my child. Except that I don’t exactly like the idea of being in labor on my birthday. Bah humbug.
Item seven: Isn’t it amazing to get a glimpse at that new, tiny little life? A life that, God-willing, we’ll soon wonder how we ever did without?
Please keep my wee little babe and me in prayer.
