Comments (199)



Ohmygosh! OhMyGosh! OHMYGOS!!!!! New house and new baby! I'm speechless...except to say how happy I am for all three--er--four of you. Congratulations!


Congratulations!!! :)

How exciting! Congratulations, I can't wait to hear all about it, and as someone who is having my first in January, hopefully getting some good advice along the way :)

No. Way.



Congratulations! That's wonderful news. Mia looks like she is taking her new role very seriously.

Congrats! Another gorgeous baby and a new house!

Congratulations! Yay!


Already said it twice but it bears repeating.




Congratulations! Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy! So exciting!!!!

Oh, congratulations! What great news!

Wowee! That's wonderful! How are you feeling?

Way to get out of moving heavy boxes ;-) Congratulations!!

Congratulations! Is Mia excited?

*SHRIEK* omg, congratulations!!!

Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you guys!

What wonderful news! I thought there might have been more to the "upcoming changes this year" besides the new house. Congrats! :)

Wow didn't see that one comeing! What wonderful news - congratulations!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!! Fabulous!!!!!!!!

WHOOPEE!! I am very happy for your WHOLE family!!

Obvioulsy you and Chris have had too much time on your hands. Congratulations!

I thought you'd never announce it!!! Congrats again, totally awesome! And I love it you choose to let Mia give the message too! Very cute!

Oh, how my heart is full...


GET OUT! Congratulations! That's wonderful!!!

OMG! Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay! YAY! I'm so freakin' excited for you! Yay! When are you due?

Congratulations! Welcome to the club. When are you due?


So exciting!! COngrats!

I saw this in my reader and didn't think much about it, becasue the images had been removed. Then I read Chris's post and had to come over and repeat the many wishes of Congratulations!


it's been such a pleasure to see mia grow into a beautiful little girl and she's so obviously loved. and now she gets to share all of that with a little brother or sister. fantastic!

Hooray! What fabulous, wonderful news! Sending lots of happy baby love!


Major congratulations, Beth!

And doesn't Mia look like a big girl!


(The secret was killing me. I only told Gabe, I swear.)

I TOLD you that people get pregnant just by making friends with me.



And the new house decision makes ALOT of sense right now.

Congratulations, again! Now we know that you have sex.


Did you and Nadine plan this?


Now put DOWN those moving boxes

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! It's official. I really AM the only person in the world who isn't pregnant with #2.
Hey, good news, "maternity" is the IN fashion at Old Navy, so if you want to avoid high priced maternity shops, just shop in the regular section there. At least some people can benefit from that fashion faux pas.
And of course, Congrats! Mia is going to be a great big sister and I can't wait to see the next little cutie you and Chris manage to produce.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you, Chris and Mia! :D

oh wow YAY!!! Congratulations Cactus-Fish Family!! Many wishes for a happy and Healthy pregnancy!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is awesome!

YOU ARE SO SNEAKY!! I *knew* you weren't moving just for the fun of a new house.

Congratulations and I hope you're feeling good.


Add one more Congratulations! to the list.

Congratulations!!! And as I said at Chris' site, what a lucky baby to have the three of you as his/her family!!! So much love and fun.

Congratulations! I've been wondering, since you said something about "all the changes" Mia will go through in the next year!

That's very exciting!

Wow -- I just saw Chris's photos on Flickr -- just wow! Time flies -- really flies --- congrats to all of you -- I'm so happy for you... Mia will make the best big sister in the world!

WOOHOO!!! Congrats!

I don't know HOW I knew this but I really just KNEW IT!!! I actually covered my hand with my mouth when I saw the pictures! Congratulations! Honestly, it is much smarter to move now rather than when the baby is 2 months old...not that I would know about that.

Congratulations. It couldn't happen to two nicer people. You are WONDERFUL parents!! More love to share. I am happy for all of you!

WOW!! I'm so happy for you guys! Congratulations!!! =]

Wow! How exciting! Congratulations! (sorry, baby news makes the exclamation points just pop out.)


YAY!! I am so excited for you guys! Congratulations!

Yippee! Congratulations!


Congrats to you all!

WOO HOO! Congrats!

Congratulations! And great timing with the house!

Congratulations!!!!! I am sooo excited for you! Yay! I like Chris' butt on the first picture too (on the left!)

Yay! Congratulations! Can't wait to meet the new cutest baby on the block!

Holy Cow!!!! I read everyday, but haven't commented in a while. This, of course, merits a comment (not that your other posts don't-I'm just lazy sometimes) Congratulations!!!!!

I KNEW that was coming....I just KNEW IT!!!!

Many Congratulations!!!

Congratulations!!! Your mom must be in heaven! I can't believe all you've done getting ready to move while newly pregnant. You're such an over achiever.

Woo-hoo! Congrats!

Wow, congratulations! I can't wait to hear more. I'm hoping it was easier for you this time around than last time!

congratulations! i don't know how i knew either, but i had a sneaking suspicion.

Bwaaaaaah! Congratulations!!

Congrats on the new baby. I love your blog. What a lucky baby this is to have such a funny and very loving mom!

yaaaaaaaaaay! congrats!!



Congrats, Ms. Fish. You are lucky, fortunate woman, and from all the Internet tells me, a really super mom. Best wishes on your new addition.

WooHoo! That is Fabulous! Congratulations to your family!

Yay! Congratulations!!! Now you'll have the TWO cutest kids in the universe!!

awwww! congrats! i'm so excited for you all!

By the way, we had fun with this one too:

wow, super congrats! I can not wait to follow you along with this one as I did Mia.

A million congratulations!

Wow! Awesome. Congratulations. (And the t-shirt is adorable!)

Congrats! Can't wait to read about the new baby that will be coming.

Congratulations! That's awesome!!!

That so rocks! Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you!

Wheeeeeee! Congratulations!!

EEK!! Congrats!!!! :)

I'm so sad. I'm not pregnant with you this time. NO FAIR!

Congratulations. This is soSO wonderful. There should be millions of little Beth&Chris babies running around in this world- I'm sure it would make it a better place!

I knew I just knew it! I have had this feeling every time I open your blog for the past couple of months that there was going to be a big anouncement and now finally here it is. YAY for you guys! When are you due? And by the way most adorable thing EVER letting miss Mia Bean spread the wonderful news =o)

Congrats! You're both wonderful parents--and now you'll have another to add to your brood. I'm so happy for you.

Awesome!!!!! Congrats!!!!! So cute having Mia spread the news, I love the last picture, she looks like she is trying to read it.

NO FREAKING WAY! WHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!

Congratulations! Not a word needed to be uttered to get that message across clearly!

And Mia continues to be an incredibly gorgeous little girl!

Congratulations again!


i said the same thing as wordgirl did, outloud under my breath to myself, when i saw this: Ohmygosh! OhMyGosh! OHMYGOSH!!!!! congrrrrrrats!!! on everything.

Congrats to you, Chris and Mia! That's fantastic! What an exciting couple of months you've had! :-)

Such ambition! New house, new baby! You people rock the house. Congrats!

I am so super excited for all of you. Mia will looooove being a big sister! Congrats!!!

Oh my gosh!! Congratulations!



Your mom must be thrilled too!

Beth, wishing you and your family all the best! When's the due date?

Gah! *crying* That is... really awesome!! Congrats!

I love these pictures, Mia looks like she has a bit of trepidation, which is exactly how it should be.

Congratulations to all of you!

YAY!!!!! :) You already have my hearty congratulations, but seriously yo.... I'm so excited for you guys!!!!

And Mia? Cutest kid EVER...

AAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 CONGRATS!!!!!!!

where the hell do you find the time. Especially with a baby in your bed? Congrats!

Eeeeeeee! Congratulations!!! I look forward to knowing all the specs.

I love the first shot of Mia. Somehow in that one picture, you can see the baby she was and the kindergartner she will be one day.

We must be sharing the same biological clock! Our wee girlies are weeks apart, and now our next babies will be too - wow!

Congratulations for the third time! Here's to an easy pregnancy, delivery, and adjustment to being a family of 4!

I'm so excited for you!



And I love the way you told everyone.

So now I'm all teary at work.

A big ol' congratulations to you guys! Have you just been bursting to tell?

Between you and Sundry, I'm going to be laughing my butt off with your pregnant antics:-)

I knew it I knew it I knew it! YAY!

Congrats! That new house came just in the nick of time, eh?

Woot! Best pregnancy announcement evah!


I'm away from the internet for a day and see what happens! Congratulations! Very happy for all of you.

Goddamnit! I leave my computer alone for TWO DAYS and shit like this happens!



What a great way to announce that number 2 is on the way. ;-)

You are so going to love having two wee ones. OF course, you'll go totally insane, but hey, that's half the fun!


I didn't read any blogs yesterday, and today I'm catching up but still not nearly, and look what happens while I am gone!!! Holy crap, I am so so happy. Hey, you must be due almost exactly when Sundry is.

Also. Your first child. (FIRST child! Because there is more than one!) Is so so cute. Genetically speaking, you guys are doing good things for mankind.

Congrats to you and your family!!!!
this has definitely made my day :-)

Knew it ! Infact, in Peru a couple of days ago I saw a little girl that except for the fact that she was Peruvian, looked a lot like the pictures of Mia. I thought to myself "I bet she will be a big sister soon" Congratulations !

(Your mom must be THRILLED!)

Congratulations to all in the Cactus/Fish family!

haha congrats!~
I just knew you were pg again.


I went on vacation and missed your big news. Congratulations! I am SO excited for you!

OMG! I am gone for a few days and this wonderful news breaks! What could I have been thinking?
I am so happy for the three of you!

I went on vacation and come back to find out you got knocked up!?!

Couldn't be happier for you! :) I can't imagine how crazy things are for you right now. Can't wait to finish catching up!

HOLY MOLY! I disappear for a couple of months and look at all the exciting stuff that happens! Sold a house, bought a house, got knocked up... Excellent work! :)


Congrats on the big news! I didn't have internet for a little while during our move so now I am playing catch up. This is so exciting!
