Just wanted to let you know that . . .

I'm pregnant. I was trying to think of some clever way of letting you all know, but my brain is not functioning to its fullest capacity these days. It's also why I haven't been getting a whole lot done around here. Mostly I nap and read. I'm 11 weeks along and I've seen the baby kick and the heart beating and the doctor said I'm pretty much in the clear for everything going smoothly.

A few answers to questions you may have:

Yes - this was planned. Actually, it was planned and then I got cancer. So that sure postponed things for a bit.
Yes - Dan is hoping for a girl (and I sort of am too) but we're both expecting a boy.
Yes - I am nervous people will think I'm a crazy person.
Yes - I am feeling just fine. The cancer is not an issue at this point and I got the all clear from my doctors. I'm mostly just tired and don't feel like doing anything.
Yes - I've already gained like 10 pounds, and I'm annoyed. But oh well.
Yes - the boys are super excited. They all want a girl except Charlie wants a boy.
No - I'm not too nervous. At this point what's 1 more?
