Interrupting My Vacation Posts

They say that life is full of surprises. Here's one of our own:

Yes, it is a surprise or an accident or whatever you want to call it. We were not trying to get pregnant. We were going to wait until the summer to try, but now I'll probably be due the end of November sometime. Skye is thrilled, of course, since she has been pestering me forever about having a baby! As for the boy or girl question, I have this feeling it is a boy. So far this pregnancy has been very different from my last. I'm a million times more sick than I ever was with Skye. I feel HORRIBLE most of the time. I've already got some cravings and I never got a single craving last time. I have to pee more this time--seriously, waking up four times a night to go to the bathroom just sucks! But in the end, even though it seems like I'm having a boy, I really want another girl. The main reason is simply because we are all agreed on a girl name. However, we all have very different ideas for a boy and no one seems very willing to bend. Lance wants Ben Lomond, I like Jack, and if it's a boy, Skye wants to name him Squiggles. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Hurray! Mike and I loved that video. We are thrilled for you. Asa has already made me play it several times over. Skye is adorable. I love surprises, and a baby is the best kind :)
Congratulations Stine Family!

Congratulations!! I'm sorry you're feeling so sick and having to get up in the night-- already, but maybe you'll have all your little problems during the pregnancy and none of them after. Sometimes it works that way, like having a fussy baby and a then a fun toddler or vice versa.

Anyway, I'm really happy for you!

Squiggles is absolutely the right choice! Congratulations! I'm very happy for all three (well, four) of you!

That has got to be one of the cutest videos of Skye ever! She is quite excited, eh? I wish we'd had a video, however, of when she told Michael and I in her little secret way. That was quite adorable as well! Gotta love that little girl. And yep, we are voting for Squiggles, too! :-)

Congratulations! That is great news. I hate to break it to you, but at least for me all of my pregnancies were different from each other. But good luck on choosing a name. At least youdon't have to worry about it until you know what you are having.

I'm so excited for you! Skye is going to be such a great big sister!

What superior news! So fun for Skye to make the official announcement! Hope Tacy's "sickness" is bearable!!!!! Looking forward to November!

Congratulations guys! I've been in Hawaii and just got this forwarded to me from Andrew. How exciting! If you are having a boy, the positive thing is that you won't ever need to be worried with future pregnancies about whether you'll have a boy or girl because you'll have one of each. That's what I liked about having one of each the best!
