Merry Christmas + the real reason for my lousy blogging ;)

So, as I said yesterday I have been a lousy blogger lately and although some of it really does have to do with sickness, there has been an other reason for my lack of posts...

I´ll let our Christmas card do the talking:


Yes! It's true! 
We are expecting our second baby and a sibling for Micha and we are so excited!

//

Some of you may know that getting pregnant with Micha did not come easy to us at all, 
his being here is a huge miracle we waited and prayed for, for a long time.
But this time around it was the most unexpected miracle, 
something we and the doctors never thought would happen, but it did!

And we couldn't be more excited and happy and thankful!

//

Right now I'm thirteen weeks along exactly (second trimester, whoohoo!). 
I'm due on June 27th 2014. 
We've had two ultrasounds and the baby looks perfectly healthy and is growing like a weed. 
We can't wait to find out if Micha will have a baby brother or a baby sister, 
but we will have to wait until my 20 week ultrasound for that information, argh!
I'm feeling more nauseous and tired than with Micha, hence the lack of blogging,
 but the excitement and happiness beats all the yuckiness!
But I hope I'll start feeling better soon!

//

So, with this happy news I'll be leaving you for a bit. 
I'm taking some time off from blogging for the Holidays, 
but I will be back with lots to blog about!

(I guess I can finally unlock my secret baby #2 Pinterest board, heehee!)

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Love, Maria

  2. Ik lees je blog altijd met veel plezier! Maar omdat Engels lezen meer mn ding is dan Engels schrijven, dit berichtje even in het Nederlands. Van harte gefeliciteerd! Wat een fijn nieuws! Toen je schreef dat je misschien wel een 'handje' van een volgende baby in je kerstboom zou hangen, dacht ik nog hoe leuk dat zou zijn! En achteraf was je toen al zwanger!

    Je hebt nu wel een praktisch probleempje... Hoe gaat je blog heten... ;)
