Mama | 10:48 AM

Congrats to you and your family. Archer is a great kid and your newest addition will be as well. It's been fun and interesting reading your blog. My son has Aspergers so some of the things Archer has gone through, and you as a parent, we have gone through as well. Our second child was a blessing to our son. He has so much joy and love for his sister, it's crazy. Anyway, the long and short of it is Congrats to you and your family!

Now that I'm all blog-a-licious, I just had to say it again on here: OMG, OMG, and OMG...CONGRATULATIONS! And somehow I feel kind of special and honored that I got to see you and Arch right before you peed on the stick. Is that weird of me? Finally, another poster makes a good point (even if it was in jest), but I dunno: Girl's Gone Children? That's almost as bad as GIRL Gone Child. WHAT, WHAT??? xoxoxoxo PS: All "bitch"es welcome on my blog, bitch.

I was wondering why you took your comments down from your last blog... people were just really expressing their opinions and you got all offended! Now, I see... that you were just "bitchy" because of your hormones! Makes sense! Congrats!

Wow, Olivia! You sure guessed it! Under normal circumstances I would TOTALLY let racist slurs slide on my blog but being pregnant (and a bitch) I totally couldn't deal. Those pesky hormones at it again!


And more thank-yous to everyone else!


traitorous slut.

Congrats! I also just found out that I'm 8 weeks along with #2. Any symptoms yet? I've so nauseous with this one...and fast food is my favorite. (Normally, I don't go near the stuff) Congrats again!

ufos8mycat | 10:59 AM

You go girl! Ever think of naming your blog, "Girl's Gone Fertile!"

That's good news. Congratulations.

Country Dawn | 8:29 PM

OMG congrats! :)

I'll be buying one of those cool tests come May! *grin*

Anonymous | 8:54 PM

Okay I am going to apologize. I just watched the Grammy's and they were mad cool! I said you maybe have had hormones and thats why you took off your comments from you blog....... I was being kinda serious! I didnt see racial slur's... I am sorry. I had no idea people were that outragous... I just saw the weird comments about John McCain! I am sorry for judging! I love you! and have another beautiful baby like me....(5 weeks preggo) !


Thanks, Olivia. All inappropriate comments were deleted before I closed comments. I don't mind opinions and would never delete a comment unless it was, as I said, slanderous or hateful. Unfortunately several people thought it was okay to go there. Not so much. Again, thanks for the apology and congrats on your pregnancy. Awesome!

I also have read your blog for awhile, but never posted. Congrats times a thousand. I hope that whenever I stick a baby in my belly, I find parent friends similarly kick ass.

Anonymous | 9:42 AM

Congratulations, that's wonderful news! I just found out I was pregnant too (with my second) and it's weird, the first time I didn't find out until I was ~7 weeks in and I don't remember any 'symptoms' starting until after that. With this one, I was ready with the pee stick and found out ~2 weeks in and I've already started to 'feel' symptoms
(I 'm so hormonal! I'm so tired!). It's all mental dude ;).

Style Police | 9:59 AM

How awesome, congratulations on your fabulous news!

LeAnne | 12:17 PM

Anonymous | 9:10 PM

Oh yeah baby! Not to scare you or anything, but yikes two is hard. So much harder than I ever thought possible. BUT, the baby is 6 months old now and he ADORES his older brother. There is nothing like watching your baby let out enormous belly laughs at the sight of his big brother being silly. And nothing like the look of pride on your 3 year olds face when he realizes how much his baby brother loves him. Makes every minute of exhaustion totally worth it.

Congrats mama!
