    I can’t believe you are preggers again! I have been trying for the last 4 months and so far nothing. What is your secret?

    Congrats to you and Jon. And Leta, of course.

  • Poor Chuck! I know how he feels. When my sis found out she was pregnant I got a similar stick in the mail. So glad she didn’t stick it on my nose!

    Can’t wait to read what new kind of hilarity and horrors ensue. Congrats!
