So, this happened
I totally blame Todd. 

The little guy is due in October and so far all we've come up with for names are Yoda (a fairly apt description of most newborns but it might get old before he hits high school) and Potato (both Todd's contributions, shockingly). I do think Tatertot would be a cute nickname, but I think we'll keep looking until a less Star Wars-themed or vegetable-based name presents itself. 

The kids are both super excited. They both wanted a boy, which was big improvement from their original request that I have twins (a boy and a girl) so they could each have their own personal baby sibling. 

As a bonus, they're also getting two new cousins, since my brother Zach's wife, Christy, and my sister Julie are pregnant too. Christy's due in August and Julie in November. We're a very fertile family- seven kids, remember? The only sad part is that Julie's on the east coast and Christy and Zach are out here in CA so the three of us will never all get to compare bellies in person. However I'm seeing Christy this weekend and Julie in June when I visit RI so I will have to be the belly ambassador.

You are seriously the cutest pregnant woman ever. And I'm really glad you get to see the other pregnant gals and compare heartburn and such.

My next-door neighbors are due in a few weeks and have resisted all my name ideas. Particularly "Bijoux." A Bijoux would live a rich and checkered life...in the Wal-mart parking lot, right?

Yay! Pictures! You go, belly ambassador!,,,

Totally adorable in every way - congratulations!! Having two boys myself (ages 4-and-a-half and almost 9), I can tell you, they're a lot of fun.

Funny you mentioned fertile families - my three sisters (including my SIL) and I had 10 - TEN - babies in 7 years... So, yeah, we're done for a bit (okay, Robert and I are done for good, actually). Each of the four of us had a baby in 2008... But my sister Kristi really won the lottery - she has a 4yo, a 3yo and twin 21-month olds (EEK, swoon, faint)!

Hugs for a happy rest of your pregnancy!!

Sarah, I'm due October 20th. My birthday and my stepdaughter's (and my grandmother's) is on the 29th but I'm hoping not to go that late!! The 12th would suit me just fine. :)
