Have You Heard?????

I just finished a lime popsicle and am now in desperate need of a dill pickle. And maybe I'll wash it down with some pickle juice. After I got out of the shower yesterday and threw on my robe I had to sit on the floor and catch my breath for about 10 minutes because I was certain I was going to pass out. I cannot consume enough calories. (Seriously, I'm like a hobbit. I have breakfast, second breakfast, tea, elevensies, and so on.) This afternoon as I was setting the table, Blaine kept pulling the table cloth off, bringing all of the glasses and silverware with it. I got so frustrated that I had to cry about it. And last week when he hit me in the mouth with his plastic dump truck I had to cry about that, too. Really hard. Like I was six years old. I'm feeling super lazy lately and can't seem to get my carcass off the couch or my eyes unglued from Law & Order re-runs on TNT. And I've been super sassy to Taylor. SUPER SASSY.

This can only mean one thing.












I'm growing a person in my uterus.

which is a perfectly good excuse for all of those things plus some. I wish I could eat like that though! Ugh food...maybe soon. Tell Blaine to play nice. Growing a person is hard work!

YEAHHHHHHHHH. We are so happy for you and Blaine and Taylor. Holly never got sassy, she just cried a lot. Wait....she did that beforehand anyway. Eating like a Hobbit sure sounds familiar.

...taco bell run anyone?

jeanine said...

Congrats!!! How exciting!

Katie said...

yeah! Blaine is going to have so much fun being a big brother! And Danielle's little one will have a playmate! Congrats!

It was so great to see you yesterday and I am completely amazed at how cute and stylish a pregnant lady can be. I mean, you're not showing yet, but you have the motivation to look darling! Good for you.

Mostly I hate eating. I mean, I like food, but it's such a nuisance to have to stop everything you are doing to make a meal. Shhh, don't tell Taylor I said that! But pregnancy gives me the perfect opportunity to enjoy every last bit of my food!!! So, enjoy it!

And cry, cry, cry, it feels sooooo good doesn't it?

Anne, I read your blog every week and I'm so excited to hear the news!!! Congrats! I love and miss you like crazy. Sam

PS I love you blogs, they keep me laughing each week.

Congrats! I feel like I'm a hobbit when I'm nursing too...so it keeps going for a while. Hope you can keep your fridge stocked!

Katrina said...

Congratulations! I'm SO happy for you! I swear everyone I know is pregnant! Well at least my blog friends. ;-) Very exciting. When are you due? How fun that you and Danielle are pregnant together?! I think I just totally went over my days quota for exclamation points. :-)

Cuss word!! I just posted and it didn't come up so I'll try again--What it said is:
Here's what I like about you. You are perfectly willing to look at yourself, even the less than elegant parts, and really dissect them--hobbit eating, crying like a baby, or whatever. I so agree with your blog regarding the super-cynical that the pseudo-sophisticated view is really boring and not at all as mature or grown up as it pretends. Revel in the cheesy, it's delicious. And you grow that baby!! I can't wait to see the results

lori said...

oh, so happy everything is now blog official!
And I'm so laughing at and nodding with this post. Pregnancy. you gotta love it.

LOVE YOU! We're still so excited about your baby-on-the-way!

kate said...

I'm glad that it's blog official too! Sheesh, I feel like your already like half way done...and you look sensational! If there are any of you who don't know Anne in real life, take it from me, she is one HOT MAMA! And your stories of Blaine beating you up with tears from you and everything is making me giggle!! And I'm so sorry about all your hormones and tears and sassy-ness. I am thanking my lucky stars that that mess is behind me... at least for now. I've never felt so, well, normal.

How I am so excited for baby Cropper #2 to come! She'll be so darling (that's what I'm hoping for, so I'm going to call her a girl - I'm sending you girl vibes right now. Not that another boy wouldn't melt my heart, but come on...girly, girl Anne needs some baby dresses in her life!) Love to you! Wish we could hang out today!

Congratulations!

I love it when my friends grow babies in their uteruses, uteri...(how does one spell the plural of uterus?) I wish the whole earth could be repopulated with the spawn of my fabulous friends.

Hope you're feeling well and overcoming the first trimester tiredness. Miss you.

Sarah said...

Congratulations! I feel so out of the loop! I'm so glad weren't pregnant at the same time (or were we?!), because I couldn't handle looking like my frumpy self when you are all super stylish!

Jill said...

I am glad you are growing a person in your uterus and not a troll! (just kiddin') Annie you are an amazing mom and will be a great mother of children (plural!)

Anna said...

Anne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, congratulations about the baby. When are you due?

Joan Koplin said...

I love that you are having another babe. Best thing ever.
I am laughing out loud about your cravings, irrational behavior, and so forth. LOVE PREGNANCY! haha. It truly is a woman's gift...for heaven sake, could you imagine a man putting up with all this stuff? Well, I guess they have to through us! Poor boys.
Love you,
Joan
