View Full Version : Catching up

Well, it's been a humdinger of a week here. I've gone into serious lurk-mode, and have had little or no time to post.
First of all, he's made an honest woman of me! :D Yes, Shawn and I were married this past Sunday. It was a beautiful day, something I hadn't counted on, considering the weather patterns we've been handed of late. But the sun came through for us and we had an absolutely perfect day. It was a very small ceremony, fewer than 30 guests. We were married on the shores of Gardiner's Bay just a few minutes from home. (Luckily, I had not heard about the Great White that had been caught off its shores yet! How scary!) Gannon was pretty well-behaved, and of course managed to sneeze (LOUDLY) at the most appropriate moments of the service. :) A friend took Gannon for the night Sunday and Shawn and I spent the night at an inn. Lovely!
Secondly...We're expecting! Yup, we've got a bun in the oven. Since I was not really paying attention to my cycles, I just figured it was a slightly askew PP period. Guess not. Our first OB appointment was today (yep, Gannon's first birthday, what a coinkie-dink, huh? :P), and they guesstimate that I am about 10 weeks along, with an EDD of 1/27. New baby and Gannon will be just shy of 19 months apart. So far I am feeling completely exhausted (but then you think a toddler and the busy summer months might have something to do with that?), but not too sick. A little queasy at night, but definitely much more manageable than with Gannon.
So today is Gannon's first, and I must admit to getting a bit weepy this morning. My little boy is so big! Hard to believe that it's a year already. Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. We are going to have a party in a couple of weeks, once things have calmed down a little bit. Today he is playing with his Neurosmith Learning Cube and FP Little People Zoo. We are planning to hit the beach in a little while, despite the fact that Gannon doesn't seem to like the water. :( Unfortunately, I also have to clean two houses today, so that kinda puts a damper on things. BUT, on the bright side, Gannon's wedding gift to us seems to be SLEEEEEEEEEEP!!! He has slept through the night three nights running, and I couldn't feel more refreshed. I find myself waking up at 6 am ready to go, me!! A girl you couldn't haul out of bed before 11 most days. :D
Okay, gots to go. I will try to be around more! Busy busy busy! :D

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!! Terrific news on both fronts, I'm so excited for you!

Oh my gosh, that's a LOT of news!!! First things first, congrats on the wedding! Sounds like you had a gorgeous day all the way around. And how exciting that Gannon will have a little brother or sister! Congrats on that too! And Gannon sleeping through the night... hooray!!! You must feel like you're on cloud nine right now. Pretty amazing stuff! It's a good thing you can wake up at 6:00 am now ready to go since you have so much going on! ;)

Wow. Lot's of big news. Congratulations. :)
It's been said before, but I'll say it again: It's amazing the lengths a girl will go to to keep from having to move to the toddler board! ;)

Married, pregnant, birthdays, sleeping... it's like Christmas! Congrats to the newest Mrs. on the board. May your sleep-filled nights continue, and here's to decades of wedded bliss (and the occasional need for make-up sex) ahead...
07-02-2003, 02:21 PM
OK, Double Wow. It sounds like you're having one fabulous week! Congratulations on both counts and we are looking forward to hearing more about your newest! Thank goodness for the low nausea, right?
Happy Birthday to Gannon!

How does it feel to be made an honest woman? :) I'm so happy for you, you're wedding sounds wonderful. Right after reading your post I turn to DH and said "hmm maybe we should've gotten married on the beach" to which he replies while grumbling "i told you I wanted to elope" AAAHH Well.
Happy birthday G-man!! You're probably sleeping by now.
I'm so happy for your little one to come. More fun shopping is ahead. I bet you've already picked out a super cool double stroller!

Yeah, isn't that funny? My back was KILLING me that week, but I just figured it was Sarah's gnarly futon. :D :D :D JUST KIDDING!
It was pretty cool to see the baby yesterday. She was bouncing all over the place. We got a little picture of her, and I SWEAR she is smiling at us. Kind of looks like Mr. Softee though. Even a friend agreed with me.
Thanks everyone for your well wishes. Luckily the theory that the second time around is easier held true for me, thank goodness! I have bouts of queasiness, but NOTHING like the first time. Good thing, because I don't think Gannon would appreciate his mama sprawled out on the sofa watching HSN for 4-5 months! :)

I am so happy for you, Gannon and DH that it's all coming together, and you have so many wonderful things to look forward to! Sleep, a baby, and wedded bliss. Hooray!
