My lime has a heart beat

I apologize for my absence!  It's not that I haven't tried, what with riveting posts about plants on my porch and my summer readings which include a myriad of self help parenting books, sure to hold anyone's attention.   I'm afraid my brain has turned to mush.   My humor lies dormant.  My waistband, expanding.  I am pregnant and therefore a potato head. 

My baby is the size of a lime, which makes me crave a Corona.  We heard the little lime's heartbeat this week, strong and fast.  It's a surreal experience to have a child inside me again.  I truly thought I was done.  Shep, I'm sure, left things tidy.  My little ham will no longer be the baby anymore.  Though, his excitement for the new baby is great.  He turns five in December and knows that the baby will come right after he turns five.  He keeps confirming this fact over and over again. 

We're packing up our brood and heading to the coast with Billy's family this week.  I'm hoping the ocean air will cure what ails me.  The second trimester is just around the corner and I'm eager to get that second wind and feel human again.
