.:No Diet Coke????:.

It's no secret that I am a lover of the sweet nectar that is Diet Coke.

But you may have noticed that talk of Diet Coke has been scarce lately.

There's really very few reasons that I would not be drinking my Diet Coke.

Actually, there's really only one.

It's the same reason that I've been doing a lot of this,

And this. (That could be crying or yelling. I've been doing both.)

There might be comparisons of me to one of these.

It's also why I've traded in this,

For this.

Have you guessed it yet?

Yep, we are expecting another one of these blessings!

(Just to be clear, the Diet Coke consumption has not stopped because I am good and worry about my caffeine intake. It's just because Diet Coke tastes icky to me during the first part of my pregnancies. I know, that was almost like swearing to say that.)

So, if you've noticed me being a bit slower with my replies to emails and comments, or the blog not being quite up to par, well, that is why!

How about some answers to questions you might be having.

1. About 14 weeks along.

2. Beginning of December.

3. No we weren't; I was nursing and on bc!

4. Of course we will, I'm a planner and have to know!

Some fun facts:

* Since January of 2008, there are only two months that I have NOT been pregnant or nursing.

* My first two are 18 months apart and the second and third will be 20 months apart.

* Which means that come December, I will have three kids, three and under.

Wish me luck!


  1. Congrats! I am due at the beginning of December too. Way fun way to announce on the bloggy!

  2. WOW! Congrats! And only 2 months not nursing or pregnant?! You deserve an award!! :) Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!


  3. Congratulations!! Hope you start feeling better soon, too!

  4. Congrats! I'm so excited for you.

  5. congrats on your news and loved the post very original

  6. Congratulations!

    I had to chuckle at your answers because I knew the *exact* questions they were for, especially since I've been fielding the same questions for the past 20+ weeks. :)

    I hope you have a smooth & uneventful pregnancy!

  7. Congratulations. I wish all the best luck in the world, may it be a good sleeper with iron health.

  8. Congratulations!!! thats so exciting, i cant wait till to have a baby one day :)


  9. Best of luck- that's so exciting!! Guess you better get to work on a little Santa outfit:)

  10. Oh my gosh! Congratulations! Isn't it funny how some things that we love when we're not pregnant we can't stand when we are? I was that way with chocolate...although I wish my aversion with it had stayed with me! Anyway, I'm sure you guys are very excited (although surprised) and it will be great to have them so close together. I'm trying to talk my hubby into #3 but so far he's not budging ;)

  11. wow summer - you will be busy but that is amazing! congrats! r u hoping for a boy this time around? :)

  12. Summer I'm so excited for you!!! What a fun little Christmas Present you'll have!
    Can't wait to find out if it'll be a boy or girl. ;)
    You didn't answer this one - are you feeling ok?? I hope so!

  13. Congratulations, sweet girl! As a graduate of the 3, 3 and under crowd, I can say from personal experience that it is totally doable! And if it's any consolation, come October, I'll have 4, 5 and under. ;) Take care, friend!!

  14. what exciting news!! having kids close is so hard when they're young, but oh-so-fun! and it only gets better!

    when i had #4, my oldest was not yet 5. they're now 13, 11, 10, and 8 1/2 - it's absolutely a blast!!


  15. Congratulations! I'm at week 30 and I still have a Pepsi every day because I can't live without the caffiene; I get horrible migraines! Best of luck to you :)


  16. Congratulations Summer! That is really exciting! Funny, I also got pregnant while nursing and using BC (with #2). I'm with Amy in the 3 kids age 3 and under and in a few weeks I'll be 4 kids age 5 and under. It's crazy, but fun!

    Hope you are feeling well!!

  17. Congrats! Having mine far apart I've always thought it would easier to have them close together. Then you're not toting a newborn around to soccer games and PTA meetings.

  18. Congratulations! I will be in the same boat, with 3 under 2.5 in October. :) Twin boys and then my little girl should be here late Sept/early October!

  19. Congratulations, Sumo! How exciting! I love the way you announced it on your blog! You are just so dang cute!!

  20. Congrats my dear! Babies are so fun! Sometimes surprises are such a blessing!

  21. Congrats....and I'm with you on the diet coke thing. I couldn't even take a single sip my first trimester...but got over that real fast and am right back on the deliciousness that is Diet Coke:)

  22. I have two things to say... Congrats and Good Luck!

  23. Congratulations!! I hope that you are feeling well!

  24. Congratulations!!! I love how you announced it...so creative:)

    I hope you like Diet Coke again soon.

  25. Congrats! And, I feel your pain. My first three kids are each 17 months apart and 3&4 are 18 months apart. There was only one month that I wasn't pregnant or nursing in almost 6 years! I remember the day I realized I would have 3 under 3. Scary thought, but it is so much fun to see them play together now that the youngest (all 4 girls I might add) is getting old enough to really play. Good luck! It's tough work, but the pay off is TOTALLY worth it!

  26. Congrats! What a creative way to tell your bloggy friends! You'll do great with 3 so close! My momma had 4 under the age of 5. We were all close, too, and now we're all besties in real life! <3

  27. So so so excited for you!! I cannot wait for you to find out if it's boy or a girl....yayyyyyy you!!!

  28. Wow, congratulations! When my fourth was born (she is 14 months now), my oldest was four. It's crazy, but it's fun. And crazy. May you only have blessings!

  29. So I had to find this post where you made the big announcement! First of all congratulations!! I am so happy for you!! You will be a great mama--again. And also, LOVE the new blog design! So nice!!
