Baby #2 is on the way!

In case you missed the new ticker that I added, we're expecting baby #2! I'm very newly pregnant, but am so excited to blog about this journey. We decided that we were going to celebrate this new life from the very beginning! I found out last Friday, but since we're visiting my parents, I wanted to wait and tell them in person. I made a cute onsie for Noah that says, "Big Brother" I also made a tank top for me that says, "Baby on Board". Grandma spotted Noah's onsie before we even finished say hello!! :) Now that family is informed, I decided it was time to tell my blogging family. (if you're part of our church family, please keep this information to yourself for now. We haven't had a chance to tell people in person that we'd like to tell, and we're not ready to make an annoucement with the youth...so please keep our news quiet for now! :) Thanks!)

We are so excited for this new little life, sometimes it's crazy to think that we're starting all over again, but I can't wait. I enjoyed my pregnancy with Noah and I look forward to this one as well. I must admit, having Noah is definitely a wonderful distraction...I'm thinking that the 8 months will go by quickly. I have been feeling a bit nauseous and very tired...in fact it was those two things that lead me to taking a test...I was feeling it earlier this time around. I sure am glad that Noah is still taking two naps!! I've begun napping for a bit while he naps. AND...he's been sleeping in!! Yesterday he slept from 7:30 pm until 8:00 am and it's 7:41 am and he's still asleep!! YAY!

Baby #2 is due on March 8th...they will be 21 months apart. Since I will most likely have to have another C-section, I'll probably deliver earlier than that.

Ok, I should probably go get ready to relax!! Oh the joys of being with Grandma and Grandpa!

Yes, I have to say, that the second pregnancy seems to fly by.. (it didn't seem so at the time, but there just wasn't time to think about each days changes!) IN a year from now we'll all have four, 5 and under.. woo hoo! Congrats sis.

It's about time!!! hahaha I'm so excited to have another new little niece/nephew (or both???....haha). It will be so much fun to see Noah with a little sibling. I am so very excited and happy for you guys. Even though there are "trying" times...children really are a major blessing from God and I wish you all nothing but the best. Love you guys *big, big hug*

I'm so excited for you! I'll be praying that you get plenty of rest. It can be exhausting growing a little human inside. Whenever I was extra tired, I would say, "I think he is growing fingers today...or he must be making a liver."

Megan said...
