So, I have a perfectly legitimate reason for why we’ve had a bit of a project slow-down at the Harpster home…
If that’s not a good excuse, I don’t know what is. We’re having a baby! I still can’t believe it sometimes. I keep forgetting that at the end of this pregnancy roller coaster we’re actually going to have a little human being to keep alive. No pressure.
We are over the moon, and of course my parents just about lost their shit when we told them. With me being an only child this baby news sent my mom into a tizzy of curse words, flailing arms, and shrieks, while my dad just sat there trying to figure out what in the world was happening. Typical happenings. My dad is convinced it’s a boy, and every time we have a Doctors appointment he asks if they found a dingaling.
We are definitely going to find out the gender, and that’ll be some time around early September. Until then, guesses welcome! (We all pretty much think it’s a boy — which is so weird that everyone seemed to skew to one gender.)
I really can’t complain about my first trimester – I’ve had zero morning sickness, and my only real symptom has just been debilitating fatigue, (which explains the lack of project motivation) which I’d take in a heartbeat over throwing up and nausea. So for all of my sisters out there who have battled / are battling morning sickness: YOU GO GIRL — I don’t know how you get up for work every morning! I’m sure this baby will pay me back for this easy breezy first trimester with either a terrible labor or in his/her teenage years. As long as s/he doesn’t ever make me listen to Justin Bieber I’ll be grateful.
I’ll keep you guys in the loop, and now that the cat is out of the bag I can start posting some of my ideas for the nursery, and baby-related DIY projects. There’s a whole lot of fun ahead!
I’m so happy to finally be able to share our news.
PS Do you guys have any idea how adorable Steve is going to be as a dad? I CAN NOT WAIT.
