Hey gang!  I know I've been gone awhile.  My second DS, Lucas John, arrived February 3.  He joins his brother WJ.  I had a rough pregnancy which is why you didn't hear from me.  Nothing medically scary for me or Lucas, but I was so very sick that it was just really hard.  I only gained 20 pounds (because I was so sick) and I've pretty much lost it.  My current weight is about 139/140 and pre-pregnancy I was around 137.  I'd still like to get down to 135, or ideally even lower, but I know I can't go on any crazy diet while breastfeeding.  So I'm slowly working my way back to eating healthy and balanced meals after 9 months of eating whatever I could stomach.  Like my last pregnancy I gained quite a sweet tooth so I'm trying to keep that in check too (small amounts of dark chocolate after dinner generally do the trick). 

Missed you all and can't wait to hear how everyone else is doing!
