Big News

So last week I promised you some fun and exciting posts this week.. Well, the first one was yesterday's giveaway! You can win a 5lb bag of some awesome healthy dog food!  Click here to enter :)

And the second one is this...



No, we aren't getting another corgi..  Or any pet for that matter.   He's gonna be this kind of big brother...



Yep, I'm pregnant!  12 weeks pregnant to be exact! Due on or around November 1st!

It was super hard keeping it a secret for this long.  I found out the night before my birthday (2/22), which explains why posts have been down since then :)    I've pretty much been sick ever since I tested.    At first, I caught a horrible cold (which I mentioned here), and as soon as that started to go away, morning sickness kicked in.  Although, of course, it's more like "all day and night long sickness".   Fun stuff, let me tell you ;)   I'm finally starting to feel a bit better though.  Or at least, I am getting used to it.

Other than that, I've been tired, but am starting to get some more energy the past week or so (and I hear the 2nd trimester is much easier!), and am slowly getting a little bump :)

Gibson has been a trooper since I haven't been able to play as much with him (I pretty much live on the couch).  Ben has been picking up the slack in that department :)  Now, daddy is  the fun one and mommy sucks.  Oh well, as long as the pup is happy!

Everyone keeps saying that 'Gibson is going to be soo jealous' and 'How is Gibson going to deal w/a baby?'  But I have confidence in the little dude.  He is so good and gentle with kids and and I can see him being very protective of his little sibling.   It's all very exciting to think about :)

So there you have it.. a big ol fat piece of gossip ;)   Ben and I are super happy and I am very excited to share my journey w/you all..  that is, if you don't mind me posting pregnancy/baby stuff on here from time to time!  I promise to still keep you updated on all things Gibson as well :)  If you have any questions, let me know!

KELLY!
I am soooooooo happy for you!
"Gibson is going to be a big brother." How cute.

Chelsea is UBER gentle with children...once a baby- six months or so was pulling her ear and poking her eye...she just sat there and took it. They seem to know. Congratulations to you and Ben! xo, Cheryl

congratulations!

Congratulations Kelly!! That is such exciting news. I have no doubt that Gibson will be the coolest big brother ever! Whenever my friends come over with their newborns or toddlers, I'm so amazed at how well Gryff handles himself and the little ones. He knows to be gentle, not to jump, etc. It's awesome. I'm so excited for your, your hubby and Gibson!! Congrats again :)

Congratulations! I'm sure Gibson will be a wonderful big brother!

Recently I discovered this Cafe Press design while I was looking for some onesie gifts for a friend. Check it out - the design is of a red & white pemmie with the words "My Brother is a Corgi". Thought you might like it.

Don't worry about Gibson, corgi's are amazing animals. We bought scooter before we had our first baby. As soon as we came home he was right next to us getting to know the baby. i have a ton of photos of him laying next to her, no matter what she was sleeping in. He's been protective of all three kids.

Jenny said...

Awesome news! Congrats Kelly! You are an amazing doggie mama so just imagine what a great baby mama you're going to be!! :)

Mary said...

Congrats! What an exciting time for you!

Life With Corgis said...

Congratulations! How exciting. And by the way...my two corgis LOVE my nephew. They are extremely calm and easygoing with him. Since he was a tiny baby until now the crazy 2 year old. He sits on them, falls on them, steps on them and they do just fine. I know Gibson will be a GREAT big brother!

Jessica said...

CONGRATS!! That's so exciting, I'm so happy for you!!

Amy said...

That's fantastic! Good for you guys... Can I ask a question, however? Just between you, me and everyone who reads this comment... we're expecting a daughter in September over at Hearding the Corgi and can COMPLEATLY relate to being tired and a bit of an absentee blogger! I've tried to keep a lot of people-faces and names out of my blog for privacy reasons but obviously having a child AND a corgi is going to be ripe blog material. How do you thik you're going to include your new little tike in Corgi Butts?

Kelly said...

@Amy

Oh my gosh, congrats!! :-D I'm planning on including the baby in the blog. I know it's scarey, with all the creeps out there, but I think I do a good job and sharing enough w/o sharing TOO much, ya know? I don't announce when we are leaving for vacation or when we won't be home or what our address is. I'm sure I'll leave a lot of details out about what's going on.. but still share all the cute photos and moments w/everyone. Make sense? Yay, I'm so excited for you! :)
