My name is Bethany, but most people call me Beth. I'm 26 and live in Indiana. I have two kids, Sophia, who's 7, and Malachi, who's 4, and a fur-baby, my tiny cat, Flicker. I was married to their dad for 5 years, until Malachi was about 6 months old, when we separated and divorced. We're back together now, and have been engaged since September of last year. He proposed to me in the morning, and I found out I was pregnant that night.
I'm a SAHM. This baby was a *big* surprise, and we're just going all the way with the surprise and waiting to find out boy or girl until baby is born. DF thinks it's a girl, and Sophia does too, and Malachi thinks it's a boy. I at first thought boy, but now not so sure. Since we have no idea boy or girl, and DF was having difficulty thinking of nicknames, I've been referring to baby as The Baby Formerly Known As, or TBFKA. (I like to think I'm really funny, but most people say I'm punny. Either way, I am pretty good at making people feel better.)
Since other people were sharing pictures, I will share some too.
Sophia using chopsticks for the first time.
Malachi after his battle with pudding. Not sure who won, but I love his expression!
Our tiny cat, Flicker. I wanted to name her Meowilyn Monraow, but from the first time Sophia heard the possibility of getting a kitten, she insisted we name it Flicker, and apparently, that was more popular.
I told Malachi if he didn't put his shirt on, I was going to. He didn't, I did, and then I got stuck. (See if I try *that* tactic again...)
This is what I woke up to, September 12, 2012. He tied the ring to the rose on the heart. He set it up on the back porch of the house we had just recently signed the lease on, and thought a new beginning in a new house would be a good way to start the new beginning of a new chapter of our lives.
This is actually the only picture I have of Matt (DF). It was the middle of August last year and *very* hot.
We're kind of a crazy-weird family, and we have a lot of quirks, but I love every minute of it, and wouldn't change it for anything!
I'm very open, so anything you want to ask, feel free!
