Oh boy...

I am going to let you guys in on a little secret about my blogging habits:  When I disappear for a couple weeks, it usually means something big is going on in my life.  Just for future reference ;)

Do you guys remember that Geico commercial from years ago-- Bob Weottababyitsaboy?

Consider this my collect call to you guys.

"First name 'Lizzie'.  Last name 'Wereavingababyitsaboy'."

It's true!  JEGs and I are pregnant and expecting a little boy around September 27th-- which means I'm about 22 weeks in.  I have been a little quiet on the blog lately because this came as a complete surprise to us, so we have been dealing with it for the past two weeks. 

I promise I'll share much more-- how we found out, how I went 5 months without knowing I was knocked up and our parents reaction. 

Till then, I will leave you with my first bump picture:

I promise in the weeks to follow, I get a little better at documenting.

Oh, and you don't have to accept the charges.  I'm totally cool with that.

Always & Forever,
  ME (+1)

I am hesitant to believe this because, well, last year's April Fools joke had me super duper close to believing it, you saucy minx!

If this is true, I am seriously running around my house in my sports bra, cause that's what I'm wearing right now, yodeling with happiness! AH!

Oh, LB! I am so excited! WHHHEEE! Congrats to you and JEGS!

P.S. This means I'll get to see the little guy this fall, eh? :)

Bethany, truth be told I had the exact same reaction when she told me. I think I stood there for about 20 seconds thinking "and here comes the just kidding."

I am so excited for my baby sister and my brother-in-law. But wait.... she's only 12......

Dammit Russ, I said make me at least 18 so I don't look like such a floosie! ;)

@Russ: I know! Its kind of the little boy who cried wolf...except no one gets eaten by a wolf. Sooo...overall, bad analogy. But, you get it.
