Two Arrows Are Better Than One

Have you noticed things have been a little quiet around here lately? Well, that doesn't mean we didn't have exciting things going on...

But that excitement caused me to have to slow down a little bit. And being on the computer makes me nauseaus (actually, everything makes me nauseaus). For the most part, my laptop has sat on the coffee table collecting dust, instead of pumping out posts from its usual perch on my lap. And no doubt, I have temporarily given up on my In My Kitchen series (just opening the fridge typically sends me into a downward spiral). But I'm slowly getting back to full strength. Which is good, because...

There's another arrow on the way. Expected to make his or her debut in early December.

The arrow is shocked to learn he is not,
 in fact, the center of the universe.
We'll be back to writing about fun things we've been up to (and posting cute pictures of Big Brother Arrow, naturally). Just wanted to let you know why my belly might be getting bigger and bigger in some of those pictures as summer fades to fall.

PS: Currently accepting any and all tips on traveling with TWO kids!

This post is a part of Mondays are for Dreaming at The Mother of All Trips. I'm dreaming of feeling a little more energetic and enjoying one last summer full of adventure as a mom of one.


  1. Yay - I'm so excited for you & your family! Enjoy these last few months with the Arrow - things really will be quite different once #2 arrives. Just take it all in stride & enjoy all of it!

  2. Very fun news! I travel all the time with 3 so when you're ready for tips, I've got 'em!

  3. I am so excited for you! Congratulations on your big news! The look on the Arrow's face is priceless!

  4. What terrific news! I had actually noticed that it had been very quiet around here and I wondered if you might be expecting. Of course, I figured that it was just my imagination because I love hearing about new babies. But, I was right. So happy for you. Traveling with two isn't much harder than one. You can do it!

  5. Congrats! Love the reaction shot :lol:

  6. So very happy for you! Oh, and do I have advice about traveling with a toddler and a baby...And some funny photos to go with. But maybe I should withhold those.

  7. Congratulations! What wonderful news. That picture is so priceless.

    P.S. We're probably super close with our due dates. Our second baby is due Nov. 28 but I'm sure it will be a December birthday. M came 10 days late. :)

  8. Congratulations! I can't wait to read about your adventures with two kids! And good luck with the morning sickness...pretzel goldfish crackers worked for me. In fact, I think that's all I ate for about four weeks. ;)
