What I Brought Back

Well, that’s it.  I’ve returned from the US with a 23-month-old, some great memories, and a suitcase full of things I just couldn’t leave behind…like some reeeeally cute plastic drinking cups from Target (which should help with our dish-breaking epidemic), a few bottles of pumpkin pie spice, and a new fall wardrobe for Adlai (mostly provided by grandparents, aunts, and friends).

I also came back with this…

The bump, that is.  (And also that skirt.  Thanks again, Target.)

The baby’s been in there since July, but the bump emerged while we were in America, and as much as I love my pumpkin pie spice, it’s definitely the best thing I brought back with me.

I’m due in late March, and feeling a mixture of excitement at another little one to love, and terror at becoming a mom of two.

I’d by lying to myself if I thought none of you had suspected this, with all my talk of homesickness and food cravings.  I’ve also been known to get a bit quiet online when I’m cooking up something big in my personal life (you know, like a small business…or a new blog design…or a human being), and you’re smart cookies, so I don’t expect any of you are surprised.

Just the same, I’m excited to share this new adventure with you.  I didn’t think I could get any more smitten with this life, but I’m very ready to be proved wrong.
