i know most people don't announce their pregnancies as early as we do. we're not those kind of people who can keep their own secrets. i'm also not one of those lucky women who glows when she's pregnant...especially in the first trimester. i break out and throw up and i can't get through the day without taking at least 2 naps. i forgot about ALL of this.
i have a theory about pregnancy. in LDS theology, we often refer to a "veil of forgetfulness" that keeps us from remembering our time before we came to earth. so i've come to believe in a pregnancy veil. it increases in strength with each pregnancy and is THE reason that jon and i continue to add children to our family.
baby canlas is due to join us june 4th...but i'm a c-section fan so i get to schedule it a week before the baby is due. that means may 28th at some ungodly hour, we'll pull up to the hospital for the big day. jon leaves for a wedding in d.c. the morning of the 29th. thus is the the life in the canlas family.
i'm pleased to say that i'm honestly excited, eager, and sincerely happy for our new addition. as all the kiddos get older, i'm actually starting to see how mommas get baby hungry. who knows how many we'll end up with...i guess it all depends on how strong the pregnancy veil is after this one. and ps...this is what baby looks like right now.
