Pink or Blue? Either Will Do :)

I’ve been keeping a pretty big secret since the beginning of January. My husband and I are expecting our first baby! We couldn’t be more thrilled. 😀 As the announcement says, the baby is due September 9th. Next month we’ll be able to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl if the baby cooperates. I sure hope it does because I can’t wait to find out!

Pink or Blue

Right now I’m really grateful to be past the first trimester (although I’m grateful to have even experienced a first trimester). I had zero attention span (what was I just doing?), was extremely exhausted (taking three hour naps like they’re going out of style), and dealt with nausea in the evening and before I went to bed (such a miserable experience). I barely read any books because they either weren’t holding my attention or I couldn’t stay awake long enough to read them. Already, though, I’ve been feeling more energized and more focused. I’m hoping this will last for a while so I can get some more books read and start keeping up with my blog again.

To be honest, I don’t know what all of this means for my blog. I’m going to do my best to balance everything, but if it comes down to choosing to read a book or writing a blog post, I’m probably going to choose to read my book because that makes a greater impact in my classroom. But like I said, I’m going to do my best because this blog is important to me. Hopefully all of you will understand 🙂

    Congratulations!! I’m a mother of 3 so I totally understand. My oldest is 10 and my youngest is 8 months. I couldn’t even imagine doing this when I was expecting my first. Lots to plan and focus on. Good luck and good health. Here’s to you and your family ♥
    When that baby comes and you do your blog, you’ll be blogging about books and baby 🙂

  2. Congrats and take care! What a fun time for you! Relax – the blog will be here when you have time.

  3. Congrats!! I’m so happy for you. Life is about to change in many wonderful wonderful ways. You’ll have such a good time introducing all your favorite books to your baby–but maybe hold off on the YA for a while. 😉

    CONGRATS! I’m jumping with joy for you! Don’t worry about the blog….take care of yourself.

  6. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That’s so exciting!

  7. I have been looking at your Goodreads account and wondering about all of the book titles you have been marking as to read. I had to come here and investigate. Big congratulations and can I recommend MEM FOX – one of my favourite authors when my children were little.

      Thank you, Carrie! And thank you for the recommendation. I’ve only read one of her books, so I’ll make sure to check out more 🙂

I love comments!
