The Birds & The Bees...& the Flying Ant!

Wow, I've been a really crappy blogger...for the past month. I've wanted to update, but I just haven't felt like I've had anything post-worthy to talk about. I promise, I'm going to try to be better.

Baby Blakely (The Sequel) is doing great. I'm halfway through my 11th week and the morning sickness seems to have let up over the past few days. I'm still pretty tired, but not the 1st Tri coma that I had with Liam. No weight gain yet, but definitely feel like my belly is bigger than it was at 11 weeks last time-- feels like I'm about a month further along. I was able to use my doppler to find the heartbeat last week and our NT Scan is scheduled for Monday, May 16th. I'm so hopeful that we might find out the sex then. Want to guess? Vote in my poll on the sidebar!

On to a cute conversation I had with my aunt & cousin when we had lunch together last week...

Background info: My cousin (who's 6) was busy playing with Liam and I didn't think she was paying attention-- My aunt and I were talking about my cousin Memo's upcoming delivery (She's due in 3 weeks!). I mentioned something about bleeding after the birth, and my cousin looked at me, clearly alarmed.

Cousin: "You were bleeding when Baby Liam was born?"

Me: "Yes. Just a little bit, but it wasn't too bad."

Cousin: "Where were you bleeding?"

Me: (Silence...looking to aunt) "You want to take this one?"

Aunt: "Do you remember where we talked about babies coming from?"

Cousin: "Out of mommy's tummy?"

Me: "Well, sometimes babies come out of their mommy's tummy..."

Aunt: "Do you remember the special place we talked about? The special place that's just for babies?"

Cousin: (blinking... looking expectantly at her mother.)

Me: (looking back and forth between the two of them)

Aunt: (giving me the side eye)

Cousin: (silent for what feels like forever, then suddenly looking up at a tree overhead.)

"Look!! A Flying Ant!!!!!"


We started laughing so hard & my sweet little cousin had no idea what was so funny. God help me when I have to explain the birds & the bees to Liam!


  1. Hahahahaha, funny and super cute. Happy almost-2T!! xoxo

  2. Freakin' adorable. Kids are awesome. Clearly she wasn't ready for "the talk". And thank goodness for that!

    We've got awhile to figure that one out... but I can only imagine the hilarious conversations that will come out of that one too.
