It's a-Bingo!

Those may have been the exact words I said to Spencer when my pregnancy test came out positive.

We had thought (well, fine- I had thought) that it might be a good time to bring another little one into our family. I had a feeling that we had another child that we needed to meet, which is a little weird I guess, but not untrue. It was right around Abby's 2nd birthday that Spencer and I realized that she was getting old enough that we could probably handle it.

I am 14 weeks, due May 23, 2013! I am pretty sick and can't handle thinking about or eating food. Last time, with Abby, I was sick the entire pregnancy. I had well-wishers say that the second trimester will bring some relief, and oh, isn't it nice that the first trimester is over? Hah! Although, I did realize at some point that I wasn't feeling nauseated every second of the day, although I'd still throw up like crazy. I'm hoping that point will come soon this time around, where I don't feel terrible all the time!

Want to know something funny? My sister Carrie, who piggy-backed on my last pregnancy (Abby and Colton were born 2 weeks apart) is pregnant too! Due May 24th. Who thinks we can keep this up until we're done?
My next doctor's appointment is next Thursday, and the dr says if the baby is cooperative we can see the sex already! Yay!

Lotsa Lotsa pictures!

 We had a friend take pictures of us several weeks ago. I think they turned out okay. What do you think?

 *Caption me! I think Abby looks a little devious in this picture. Like, "Aha!" or "Yesss!"

Oregon Coast part 3: It's Pretty Froggy over here

We had a lot of foggy days toward the end of our trip, and honestly, it has been so long that the things we saw (and missed) due to the fog has slipped my mind.

Little bug got antsy a few times over, so we had to track down some playgrounds for her to play on.

This is Devil's Punch Bowl, which was really cool.

Awesome Asian restaurant in Newport. Don't be fooled by the neon shack- this was so good! Noodle Cafe.

Yaquina Bay Lighthouse- can you see it?

We hiked down the jungle path to the beach, but we didn't make it to the ocean.

Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Can you see it?
We looked at the tide pools around Yaquina Head Lighthouse, which Spencer could have spent all day looking at.

More playground!

Oregon Coat Aquarium- This was pretty cool, but we didn't make it there until almost 4 and we tried to hurry around and see everything before it closed. Blame Abby's nap, but she had fun- not the same kind of fun we wanted her to have (running around and playing with buttons and knobs instead of oohing and ahhing over the fish.)

I loved this place. Loved. Local Ocean Restaurant in Newport- delicious!
Spencer's dinner- Fishwives Stew. Yeah, he ate it all.
I had a crab po'boy. We split a super yummy roasted garlic and Dungeness crab soup to start, and this entire menu was great!

Multnomah Falls on the way back home- very pretty!

This was my view most of the way home- I love those cute little legs!
