Yup you read that right- we’re expecting!!!! I still can’t believe it! Baby Hughes #2 will be here late January, Lord help us all. P.S. All photos done by the lovely Joleen Pete Photography
How did we find out? Well honestly I had no idea I was pregnant. We weren’t planning it, that’s for sure. I had a bachelorette party at the end of the month that I was SO looking forward to, we had just bought a house, we were SO busy (isn’t everyone?) and a million more reasons why waiting to have another made sense. But then we’re sitting on the deck at the lake house and Jason says to me “Honey, I think you need to take a pregnancy test.” I was taken aback- “Why?” And he replied “Well you’ve been really mean to me and you’re taking naps, like, every day.”
Cue me laughing hysterically. Because I had been mean to him. Like, just looking at him made me want to punch him in the face. And that’s SO not normal, I promise. I mean, normally I really adore this hubby of mine. So we ran to CVS and ta-daaaaaa those two pink lines screaming YOU ARE KNOCKED UP appeared.
Then I started crying, also hysterically (hello hormones), because I was so excited. I can’t wait to bring another little love muffin into this world!! Especially with these two sweet men by my side. I am already dreaming of that delicious newborn smell, and watching Huddy hold peanut for the first time, and seeing Jason’s face as he looks at his newest love! Ahhhhhhhh!
I mean, can you handle it??
Side note: Let me preface this pregnancy with a warning, I am NOT a pregnancy unicorn. I have friends who are, and if I didn’t love them so much, I would hate them. You know the ones who don’t get nausea, or acne, or cellulite, and lose the baby weight, like, the next day postpartum? Yeah that’s not me. At about four weeks I started breaking out so bad I looked like the before picture for Acutane. My hormones are so out of whack I don’t know what’s gonna come out of my mouth. And the nausea…omg the nausea. I had no idea I could have the urge to puke All. Day. Long. Until 8 PM rolls around and then I want to EAT ALL THE THINGS. Especially bread, Poptarts, cheese, ice cream, more Poptarts. And maybe a donut.
Overall, I am so excited about this next chapter in our lives, and even more ecstatic that you all get to be a part of it with us. Thank you for all your love and support this past year. *cue the crazy hormonal crying*
