I’ve known something for a bit now but have been told that I couldn’t put it on the blog. That was hard for me, after all, I want to share the news with all my friends… Last night I finally got permission to go live. They wanted to wait until they had an ultrasound to tell.
If you didn’t guess by the picture, I’ll say it in words…Kalissa and Craig are expecting.
We are all so excited. I think seeing the ultrasound picture has really helped it all sink in…that and the morning sickness.
Poor Kalissa has had a bought of morning sickness. It kicked in a couple weeks ago but she’s learned a lot since then and is doing much better. She’s had a cold too so ended up one day in the ER to get fluids…nothing too serious but something she needs to learn to manage.
They are due on September 29th…two days after Hubby’s birthday.
I can’t believe some of the questions and comments she’s gotten…Yes she’s only 20. Yes they planned the baby. Yes we are all happy about the pregnancy….VERY HAPPY!!
Trends now days are for couples to wait and have children but if you know Kalissa, she’s always been itching to grow up fast. Lots of people want this or that before they have kids…they don’t.
For those of you who are keeping track of the family and birth order…Yes, Kalissa is our youngest. We had five kids in eight years. Kelli just turned 29 and Kalissa will soon be 21. So the baby of the family is having the first grand-baby.
Kalissa tells me that little baby Friedman is only the size of a strawberry at this point….she’s always telling me some little fun fact….and she’s always trying names out on me. Hubby was once known to have said, “I don’t care what name you pick but if I don’t like it, I’m just going to call your kids Ralph.” She keeps asking do you think Dad would call it Ralph….
Well we have lots of days and I’m sure lots of names to run through before it’s all over…I’m so glad I finally got full permission to tell…it’s been awful keeping quiet!
