Child 2.0

We're pregnant again. We figure boogerbucket #2 will show up around June, but a doctor's visit or two should give us a more accurate due date. Knowing what's coming makes for less anxiety, but the creation of a new life is just as magical the second time around. Children are truly the "realest" event in life, giving meaning, focus, hope, pleasure, and infernal consternation in one convenient package.

Hopefully this one will be a little less eventful than Molly's tempestuous arrival. I think the cosmos owes us a little less drama.

In other news, I'm down about sixty pounds now. I'm visiting the doctor in a couple of days to re-evaluate my blood pressure medicine. Even on half doses, my BP is low, measuring 112/72 sometimes. I get dizzy standing up. Guess that happens when you drop 20% of your body weight, which is a nice problem to have. Fifty more pounds to go and you can look for me modeling underwear for Sears.

Congratuations to you two "proven parents".
Yes, the gift of new life is the "realest" event in life.
Oh yes, the second new life creation is as magical as the first. A unique "earthsuit" being created for the breath of God-a living being-Psalms 139:13 & 15-16 NLT Bible!!! Verse 16 "You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out, before a single day had passed".
We are so very happy to be witnessing this "great family blessing".
Molly Elizabeth will be a super great big sister.
We are super proud of your health achievements. Keep your improving "health" focus & learn to value your healthy lifestyle changes.
Mom & Dad

This is great news Bryan.
The joy of a new child never diminishes.
Just make sure that you dont do like most of us other parents, and remember to take pictures of the second kid as well.
