how to say, "i'm pregnant" in french: "i suis enceinte"

there. now you've learned something today. "i suis enceinte"
i've been saying that a lot lately (in english) because, well, i am.

the past 13 weeks & 4 days have been filled with a blur of gratitude, exhaustion, nausea, life decisions, reflections, excitement, fear, eating all the food, happy grandparents & friends, peeing @ 2 am, more life decisions, absolute aversions to avocados & chicken, & etc etc.

it's been a blast.
in between the haze of "i need sleep" & "i need food" i tried to think of a fun way to tell our family & friends about baby bird #3. the idea took root in my mind & once the girl's Christmas dresses arrived i begged them for 3 minutes to smile & hold a sign.

was it a success? well, you tell me:


yep. i think so. 
i slapped this baby on FB & called it a day.

one head swap later i did manage to save this one for the records as well:


i know for a fact that fruit snack bribery had something to do with it. not the promise of a new brother or sister. so fickle.

but yes- baby bird #3. wow. EDD: July 9th, 2013. boom.

i know people (like me) love the specifics. so i'll come back this week with the how's & why's & when's. but for now,  i hope you & yours had a Merry Christmas.Happy Holidays & a fantastic New Year!
