I’ve been keeping a little secret…
That’s right, Baby #2 is on the way!!
Some of you probably guessed this due to my absence for a while this summer and spottiness lately. But, it’s official now!! We are so excited and so blessed by this little addition to our family. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m more confident than ever in God’s perfect plan for us. Sam is going to be the BEST big brother!!
I’m due in mid-March, which makes me almost thirteen weeks pregnant right now. I was pretty sick (a lot sicker than I was with Sam; although, I realize lots of people have it MUCH worse than me) from about Week 5 – Week 12 and very tired; but, obviously, all of it is totally worth it, and I’m feeling better every day. Of course now I’m anxiously awaiting the “second trimester energy burst” and am just so excited to finally be able to share our news with the world (or at least the web) and enjoy this fun season of preparing… and growing (and trust me, I’m doing plenty of that)!
More to come of course! Stay tuned.
P.S. While I love the Berenstain Bears – and the cover of that book is pretty cute – I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it if you are trying to prep your toddler for a new baby. Apparently “New Baby” was the very first BB book – published in 1974 – and it was still kind-of awkward to talk about women having babies (???). The premise of the story is that Brother Bear and Papa Bear go into the woods to build a bigger bed for Brother, and when they come home Mama has already had the baby, and she is sleeping in Brother’s old crib. Hmm… (As my due date approaches, I’ll be adding this one and this one – endorsed by Kendra, who should know since she’s done this 6 times now – instead.) Just FYI.
P.S. S. Can you believe Kate Middleton stole my thunder with her announcement this week? 😉 Now I get to look forward to comparing my bump to hers for the next six months. #awesome
