Bigg Happenings.

I know that I haven’t blogged in a while (3 months) but it’s because every time I thought about blogging, I felt like puking. To clarify, every time I thought about anything or did anything or smelled anything, I felt like puking…or did puke. This pregnancy, I have had WAY more nausea than ever before. It was really neat. But now, PTL, the sickness is starting to subside! So all that is to say sorry for my absenteeism. (I really wanted to blog, but I just kept falling asleep during every spare second I had.). Here’s most of what we’ve been up to.

Charlie turned 15 months old.

  1. Yay!! You’re back! I had a dream 3 nights ago that I got bitten by a snake and you blogged about it (after saving my life)…apparently I was really missing your posts. Your kids are adorable, as usual. That naked picture of West is so sad and sweet.

  2. This is awesome! Sorry we missed our play date last week!! The picture of West is so funny and sad all rolled into one most likely unforgettable memory. I’m thinking senior slide show, lol. Love the 5 week baby belly!! Can’t wait to see you all soon :)
