So I have been the world's biggest slacker with blogging. And I will probably regret it, unfortunately. I have failed to document Cecie's 2nd year in words. I do still take photos and I am up to date with my photo books (hooray), but I don't have any way of remembering all the little things. I am cutting myself some slack, though. Starting and running a business is all consuming. I thought I was going to take some pictures a few times a month (if I was lucky) and not much was going to change. I rolled with it, however, and somehow this turned into a real thing with real clients and real work and a real studio and real equipment and real props, etc, etc, etc. So something HAD to give. And it was blogging. 

I would love to say that is about to change, but let's face it. I am probably not going to be blogging like I once did. It is what it is. I DO, however, have some very important blog posts coming up and I WILL take the time to write because there are some experiences that I have to be able to go back and read about. 

So here is the first of a few very important posts coming up.

We are having a baby.

A baby. A third child. Another person will be in our family.

No, I don't have a due date. No, I don't have morning sickness (woot!). No, I am not getting round in the middle (unless I keep at the Halloween candy with the same urgency as I have been for the past week). 

So obviously I am not pregnant. But close enough! Our home study is in 2 days. Deep breath. 2 days. In 2 days, as long as everything goes well, we will start "the wait." From that point on our life is in limbo. It could be a few days, a few weeks, a few months, or even a few years before we have that third baby in our arms. Bryan seems to think it is going to happen really quickly. I love that he thinks we are so marketable. I am preparing myself for a long wait, though. I am okay with there being more space between Cecie and Baby 3, but the unknowns with this kind of adoption makes me want it to just happen right away so I don't have to think about it. 

I don't know how this is all going to shake out. How will this affect my business? Our family? Our finances? Who knows. All I know is that we are going for it. We are giving our kids another sibling and I cannot freaking wait to see what she looks like, to name her, to know her birthday, to know where she was born, etc. I know things will be hard, but we will get through it.

I'll keep you posted ;)
