Greetings, bloglings.

My maternal grandmother (the real, live Manners Fairy) once told me to never apologize for lateness in a thank-you note. Just write the note, mail it, and count your blessings that you didn't go and forget.

On the one hand, I feel like this advice should carry over to the blogosphere, like, don't apologize for not blogging. Just write the blog, post it, and walk away. For one thing, apologies are boring. For another thing, if you keep a blog like mine, then pretty much all your entries would be apologies and you may as well call it "Bumbling through Remorse: Lessons in Self-Reproach".

All that good advice aside, I would like to offer an explanation. After all, in this case my explanation is kinda fun.

Here's a hint: It's the same excuse I used last time.

Why I can't blog and be 1-3 months pregnant I really couldn't tell ya, but there it is -- we're having another baby!

I'm due the first week of June, in case your wondering and no, we don't know the gender yet but will soonish. I have already gotten my hands on a second crib and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that both babies sleep through the night in the same room like it's their job and don't bother each other at all. Because it's good to stay realistic in these circumstances.

So I'm going to round out this little entry with our first photo of Baby #2. Believe it or not, the baby is facing up and you can see the profile. You know what they say, if you can read a fuzzy sonogram in real life, take a poor quality cell phone picture of it. 

Clears it up every time.
