A New Member of the Family

April 5th, 2009 · by Cyndi · No Comments

Hello all!  It’s been a while since I’ve posted here regularly.  I blame it entirely on technical problems.  Has nothing to do with me whatsoever.  *ducking*  My camera went bad and I replaced it, then had horrible problems with the disc, replaced that, had the same problem with the new disc (different brand), realized the new camera makes discs useless when doing a low-level format, reformatted the regular way, seem to have fixed the problem. *cross fingers*

But then I was out of the habit of making regular posts.  It’s not for lack of material; I’ve got info for a good dozen posts, at least.  Just my own rhythms.

To get things going again, here’s an update.  This is what I look like now:

Cyndi at 11 weeks, with Miriam

What do I look…4? 5? months pregnant in that photo?  Actually, that’s all belly.  There is a baby but it’s neatly tucked away out of sight.  I’m an “apple” to begin with and then you add first trimester stomach discomfort so wearing tight clothes (like jeans with a belt) or even holding in my stomach is intensely unpleasant.  Upshot: I carry big.  With Miriam it was like a mountain, and she came out less than 6 lbs.

I am currently 11 weeks along (that’s nearly 3 months for you week-phobic folks) and due shortly before Halloween.  And, yes, I just had a birthday and turned 45.  No, that’s not a typo.

Miriam couldn’t be happier.  When we first told her she got all giddy, hugged me tight, and kissed me on the lips.  She insists it’s going to be a little sister, but of course we haven’t any idea at this point.

Stay tuned for updates as we have them.
