Like Rabbits...


Look what the Easter Bunny dropped off yesterday:



(He's a little presumptuous, don't you think?)
**This should explain the lack of posts. One doesn't feel exceptionally entertaining during this lovely nauseated period. Sorry.)

Well congratulations as I know this is just what you wanted and I am so happy for you both to have another bundle of joy in the Romney family. Happy Easter my friend!

The MomBabe said...

he-he-he! You're pregnant!
congratulations!

Lindsey said...

Congratulations! Um, I believe your blog (on March 4th to be exact) stated you were CONTEMPLATING having another child! I wish contemplating ANYTHING worked that well for me! Obviously, you got past contemplation pretty quick. :) But more importantly, what happened in Portland??

Lindsey said...

Oh, and Happy Valentines Day baby!

Jill said...

Wasting no time huh!!?? That makes me laugh because I can't imagine it happening that fast (you just mentioned you were thinking about it). WOW. Good for you. Congrats. Hopefully you'll be feeling better by blog-a-palooza because we are going to party!

zeeny said...

Congratulations!! What a sweet easeter bunny! Hope you feel better soon!

Annie said...

congrats!

Lauren said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! :)

I am so sorry about the nausea. It is the pits...

So, is that how you told Ryan and the kids about your wonderful news? Via the Easter Bunny, I mean?

So, I now sheepishly say, I hope you don't have one of those tracking things like Stat Counter because I have been checking your blog even MORE often than the 3 or 4 times a day that I normally do, to see how you liked Portland. I am so sorry you had to fly feeling morning sickness.

I am going to go check my kids Easter Baskets...perhaps that bunny left me an egg...a pink egg is what I would love ;)

Lauren said...

Oh, by the way...I loved your very clever title.

Shally said...

How exciting! Hopefully the nausea will be over soon...

Holly said...

That was an extra-special egg! Congratulations!

Penny said...

Wow! I am so happy for you guys! What a cute idea and post. Trevor was standing behind me and it took him a minute...then he said "The Romney's are having a baby?!" We are all excited for you... and you better NOT move! Hope you are feeling better soon! We love ya!

Rochelleht said...

YEA! Congratulations. That's so exciting. Can't wait to hear how the interview went and if this new one will be born in Oregon. Bridget's there to take care of you.

Lisa-Marie said...

"Like Rabbits."

hee hee hee. She may be sick, but she's still funny!!!!

I'm so happy for you all! Take care.

And I too am so anxious to hear how Portland went?

Jeanelle said...

I'm so happy for you! What fun news. And yes, we need a Portland update!! :)

Rachel said...

Aaaawwww!!! Congratulations!
Good luck through this period of morning sickness. I do NOT envy you. It's all too familiar still...

Happy Easter!

gab said...

Hollyween said...

I can't think of a better blog to comment on (the only one today) than this one. Congratulations!!!!!
That is so exciting!

Brooke said...

Congratulations! Is this announcement at all related to the things that were not "family-blog-appropriate" as discussed in the Valentines post? :)

Love, Spence and Brooke

The Hansen Clan said...

Congrats! I am so excited for you guys - will you find out if it's a boy or girl or just be surprised? We really are happy for you though - thanks for making my day with your cute post.

Heidiram said...

Matthews Family said...

I think you got the rabbit and the stork confused. Congrats!

Laurie said...

Congratulations!

But, how does Ryan feel about you and the bunny?

brooke romney said...

CONGRATS!!! You are so brave and so lucky. You guys are fabulous parents, so this is one blessed baby. Good luck!

HILLARY said...

How exciting. I'm glad it's you and not me :) Just not a good time for us right now. But You, if anyone, can do this. Can't wait to hear more. um.. not details, but you know!

Pineapple Princess said...

For sure I am not showing this post to my kids. They thought they were pretty lucky to get Robin's Eggs. I am sure your kids were ecstatic.(sp)

Congrats. And good luck with the nausea. Bleck.

Denae (a.k.a. D-dawg) said...

Jessica, great news! I am so happy for your family!

Sally said...

Congratulations, how wonderful! A new baby--so sweet, such a blessing. I hope you will be feeling better soon.

Paige said...

Wasn't there some old fashioned pregnancy test involving a rabbit and pee? You two do breed like rabbits, so good timing! So happy for you.

Danna said...

Wow, that is really exciting! Congrats! You will be great with 5 kids. I'm sad to hear that you might be moving to Portland. :(

Stacy said...

I guess we're like rabbits too, then...5 kids in under 9 years - you stretched yours out a little longer, but not much!! Congratulations! I guess we won't plan a reunion "Magic Mountain" trip anytime soon (according to your mother, we will be seeing you next week, though, so yay!)

crystal said...

Your Easter Bunny gives YOU better visits than he does me. Naughty Bunny.

Lorena said...

I won't be joining you and Stacy in the 5 under 9 club...sorry.

And, shucks, I was totally looking forward to joining in on the Magic Mountain Reuion this time around!

Christie said...

Job changes, pregnancy, new cities. Life is throwing you some changes this year! Congratulations. That is so exciting. You have such beautiful babies - can't wait to see pics of this one!

andrea said...

you're going to have a silver egg? that should make for an easy labor and delivery.

i'll bet you could sell it on ebay for a ton!

congrats!!

Bridget said...

Congrats! That is so exciting. Sorry if you were feeling sick at my house and feeling like you needed to eat to be polite. I was the most nauseated at dinner time with my pregnancies.

So excited for you. You do have a LOT of changes coming up. 2008 will be a memorable year.

DaNae said...

Congrats! It will be so fun to have a new baby around. What a cute way to announce it too.

Karen said...

Congratulations to you! You sure know how to celebrate a holiday. I thought you went all-out for St. Paddy's day, but this is a whole new level of commitment.

How exciting. And very cute announcement. I hope you feel better very soon.

stephi k said...

Congratulations Jessica! We just ventured into that territory (5 kids) 3 months ago and would never turn back! Nice to see you've been happily blogging since I last talked to you 2 years ago. Please give me a holler.

Natalie said...

Like rabbits? I don't get it. Just kidding. Congrats! I'm still mentally preparing for five. I'll let you try it first:)

Elizabeth Caldwell said...

Wow - fantastic news. I am so happy for you! I really do admire you, and I am not sure how you cope! I cant seem to manage 1 child well some days!

Abbie said...

Congratulations! That is very exciting!! Happy baby!

Melinda said...

Congratulations!! That is so exciting! You and Ryan are such great parents so more Romney's is a blessing!!!

marta said...

rubberbandgirl said...

Congrats, Jess!
May the force be with you for all you've got on your plate at the moment.

Hazen5 said...

Yay a new baby!!! Congrats to the whole family. I think I'd fall over if I found that egg!

Kristin said...

Yippy!!! This is the best news ever!! Hope you feel better soon.

The Parkers said...

Wow ~ #5! I'm really excited for you. I hope everything goes well.

Kate said...

hooray - congrats!

Jacki said...

That is so great! I hear you though! I was so nauseas my first four months. This is so fun though!!!

Ilene said...

Ah, posting your pregnant always gets the most comments and attention. I can see why rabbits are so busy.

Congratulations!

Finally, someone else is pregnant after me so I don't have to be the last one to pop. Again, my selfish side rears its ugly head.

Grandma Cathryn said...

Whaaaaaaaaaat? Congratulations, you two bunnies. November's a great month for babies!

Mique (as in M-i-c-k-e-y) said...

Wow- congrats...guess I better change the focus of my good mail package to you.
And you two must have had a great Valentine's Day (note: the only reason I write this is because my bday and my sis' bday are the first week in Nov- 1st & 3rd. My mom said she totally avoided my dad on V-day for years after!!!!).

Carie said...

Seriously, if you get 59 comments, do you really read them all?

But congratulations from the Skinners!

Kara Jayne said...

I almost cleared out my google reader because it was too overwhelming after our 10 day vacation...glad I scrolled down quickly instead! Sorry I'm so slow on the draw.

I completely admire you. I don't know why the jump from 4 to 5 freaks me out so much, but for some reason it seems like a huge leap! Congrats!

Celia Fae said...

Just reading about your nausea makes me want to go take a Zofran. I hope you are managing okay. I would join you in the five if the barfing weren't so pervasive.

Just think how many kids you and Ryan would have had 100 years ago, Ms. Myrtle!

TexasTwinsTwice said...

CONGRATS!!!! That is awesome--loved your post title!

Adrianne said...

Great announcement, great comment generater! I am very very happy for you but not feeling so encouraged to try and make our kids be too close in age...even though that was kind of my dream.

Adrianne said...

and p.s. the old fashioned test involved frogs and pee - Mario's mom tested that way!!

Anisa said...

Honestly, I don't know how you're doing it. But, we all saw it coming, right!!! Congrats!

Penny said...

I'm glad the Easter bunny dropped THAT egg off at the right house! That was such a cute post. And Congrats, we are so happy for you! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Jenibelle said...

Had to add my congrats! 5 isn't bad at all! You sound very organized, this will be a tough year, but think of all the blogging possibilities!!

Paige said...

Now I think I should get pregnant for the comments. That is a whole new level of blog-dedication. There's nothing better than a blog baby!

I'm thinking of you and your nausea everyday. So sorry you feel rotten. Even if it's "short" and "not that bad" it's bad and I feel for you.

Kristy said...

Congratulations! I'm still cracking up at your friend Laurie's comment. If that egg had been found at my house, we'd be having rabbit stew! LOL

There was a blood test (pregnancy) involving rabbits years ago.

Amber said...

I saw this and shot the Easter Bunny at first glance...should he get any ideas around this house.

CONGRATULATIONS ROMNEYS!!! You make BEAUTIFUL babies, no sense quitting now!

Lindsay said...

Congratulations! I'm going to have to live vicariously through you so share every detail...once you get past the nausea that is!
