|With all of the talk about planning ahead for our kids, we got a little carried away and now have a deadline of September 8th for the remodel and the arrival of Baby Vrbas!|
|Sharing the good news with the Grandparents to be!|
We had to call our siblings to tell them, but they were all very excited (and some of them a bit surprised!) to hear they are becoming Aunties and Uncles. We waited to share the news with everyone else because we had a trip to see most of my dad's side of the family at my cousin Emily's Bat Mitzvah. It was so fun to surprise everyone!

|I love the look of wonder at people's reactions on my face and I love how Katelyn and Phil are laughing because they get it. Only Brian looks like he heard something interesting! It took a while for the message to click with everyone!|
I have been so lucky since I have not gotten sick at all! The first trimester was interesting even without getting sick. I certainly felt dizzy easily in the mornings and felt a bit nauseous here and there. I was extremely tired...that doesn't do it justice. Fatigued, exhausted, and even more. Teaching Kindergarten while being that tired is a different experience. The most interesting part is how strong everything smelled to me...the bad and the good. Now, the second trimester is wonderful and baby is growing slowly, but surely. I am starting to show a bit and am feeling more normal. We shall see what the third trimester holds. Probably more aching feet and back and then some.

Last week was my spring break. I started off at Disneyland and L.A. with just my parents and brother, then headed to San Diego for some father daughter time with my Aunt and cousin, and finally Phil and my mom joined us for a stay at the Catamaran in Mission Beach/PB and one night at the Lodge at Torrey Pines before a longer than normal drive back to the Bay Area. After seeing my high school best friend marry a great guy in SF and after celebrating my mom's birthday, we headed back home.
