When I made my last post, I had no idea the changes and challenges and celebration about to hit the Frank home. Turns out, even then, a little secret was abrew in my belly. (Let's not get finicky about anatomy here.) We're expecting a lil' Frank!
The first trimester included three solid months of nausea, the ferocious continuation of the epic headache, extreme exhaustion, and a good helping of antsy excitement from two happy/nervous first time parents. The second trimester hasn't kicked the headaches, but I'm more energetic and excited and finally able to show off a little baby bump. (Good lord! Why doesn't everyone always wear maternity pants??! They are so amazing!)
At 20 weeks, we found out that we're having a little Stan. I'm hoping that his hair stays on top of his head. Sure, I'll love him however he comes out, but I'd prefer that Baby Frank waits until he's at least a teenager to grow a full beard.
I guess we're halfway through this pregnancy, which really blows my mind. Time is flying, and the fun's just about to get started.
Stan starts plumbing school on Monday. He will be working full time and going to school in the evenings for a year. I'll only see him after 10pm on M-Th through next September. So that will leave some space in my life for crafting and blogging, at least until the baby comes to suck up my extra nesting energy. Look forward to some baby project blogging, maybe? And if you want and are close and able, maybe hang out with me on week nights? Here goes!
