You're On Notice, Chuck Norris

The truth is out. As a dear reader guessed in the comments of my last post, the latest news is that I am indeed pregnant! This explains my patchy posts, as I have been tired out by all that making another human being and stuff. Its the excuse of the century when I neglect my household duties. If my husband complains that he has no clean socks, I fix him with "the look" and tell him, "Today I made our baby's nervous system. What did you do today?" Argument over, I win. And then I tell him I am going to go take a nap and to please watch the girls, make dinner, and throw a load of laundry in because we are all out of clean socks.

Anyway, I went to the doctor yesterday and got my second ultrasound of the pregnancy. The baby is just 11 weeks along, measuring 1.5 inches, and guess what. That baby was kicking and karate chopping like you would not believe. So you are officially on notice, Chuck Norris. You will meet your match in about 6 more months.

The baby also rolled around, flipped over several times, and basically just went to town on the kicking. Baby loves to kick. A lot. Which I am thinking is going to be oodles of fun when he or she runs out of room in there. I'll keep you posted.

Even though I have experienced the miracle of creation twice before, it suddenly dawned on me that this tiny little person, less than 2 inches tall, is already its own person. With its own brain, its own personality, and its own soul. And being my child, most likely with its own jumbo-sized attitude. This is my next Ivy or Violet.  Wow.

I love my kids so much, they are so adorable and so fun that I cannot wait to bring their sibling into the world and to get to know this little human being. And to train him or her to be the next martial arts champion of the world.


  1. Congratulations! You're right...making a human being trumps any other thing goin' on!

  2. Loooooooove it! "I made our baby's nervous system today... what did you do?"
    Congratulations to you! I can't wait to meet him/her! (I forget... do you find out the gender?)

  3. Thanks Dixie Mom!

    Teri, I absolutely want to find out gender...I am very impatient, but have to wait until 20 weeks. If its a girl and then Chuck Norris' rear will be kicked by a chick. That's life, Chuck, what can I say?

  4. That's a ticket I'm definitely going to buy...infant vs geriatric Norris, the fight of the century! LOL
