Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve said that, two weeks to be exact. Did you miss me? I missed you guys.
Safi did an AMAZING job filling in for me while I was away, with his busy travel/work schedule I know it wasn’t easy for him but he knocked it out of the park in my absence! And, for the most part, you all were extremely respectful and helpful! And for both of those things, I am extremely grateful to Safi and this amazing community!
So where have I been? What took me away for two weeks? Contrary to popular belief…I was not in fact on vacation. Sorry CJ Disney was, unfortunately, not where I spent the last two weeks.
I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys for quite a while now, and it’s finally time to let the cat out of the bag….
Exactly two weeks ago I gave birth to baby Addict #3!
Yes, I spent most of the last year pregnant and for the first time didn’t divulge that information with you all. To be fair, we really kept it a secret from most people in our lives until recently.
Why keep it a secret this time, when I was so open about it the last two times? The answer is pretty simple, honestly, I’m older now. Lots of complications and risks come along with being of that “advanced maternal age”…I swear I never felt so old while being told “but you’re still so young”, then I have over most of the last year.
Anyway, I’d like for you all to meet Baby Addict # 3…
He was born on November 16th. Weighed in at 8lbs, 7oz, and was 20″ long. Big Sister Riley and the brand new Big Brother Sammy are over the moon in love with him…as are my husband and I.
Time will tell if our family is complete at 5…but right now it feels pretty complete. 🙂
Anyway, I’ve enjoyed my two weeks off. I’m back now and full steam ahead, as always around here.
Oh and there’s another little exciting twist that was added to the story last week, but I’ll share details of that on the next Addicts Live (which I think we may be recording this week). Never a dull moment around here, that’s for sure!
And just another reminder, for those who like regular photos of the new baby, as well as the other “baby” Addicts you can always check out my Instagram (where I’ll now finally be posting photos of baby Teddy), @AddictsAlissa…that’s where I share the most photos and life updates of the kiddos! So check it out and be sure to follow 🙂
And now back to your regularly scheduled Addicts posts…
