...and then there were fourSaturday, March 15, 2014
When we decided to start growing our family, Jonah came along pretty quickly. It wasn't like we were young and need to wait a little bit longer it just happened more quickly than we thought, then followed the year of change. Well, that was a little over three years ago, when we found out we were expecting the J man. Since then, he has brought so much joy to our lives and we have settled in nicely as a family of three. So nicely in fact, I have had a hard time deciding to add another to the mix, BUT I never imagined our family just being three. I always dreamed of my children having siblings, just as I did, Wesley and I are both the middle of three children and are very close to our siblings... I wouldn't want it any other way. So, now we get to share that gift with Jonah. Yes, our family is growing. . .
We are currently in "survive the first trimester mode" because just like the last, this hasn't been easy for me. It's actually been very hard, but this is a happy announcement post, I'll save my "I don't feel cut out for pregnancy" posts for later.
We are currently 11 weeks and the baby is looking great! I have actually gotten to see the little one twice now (at 6 weeks and 10 weeks) and we will probably get to see him/her again very soon.
We are so excited to watch Jonah become a big brother and to meet a new little soul that I know we'll love more than we ever thought possible. I know Jonah will be great as a big brother, though he doesn't quite understand yet what is happening! There hasn't been a baby on either side of our family since April 2012, so this one will get some spoiling for sure. Jonah will be almost Three when this one arrives and I feel great about he timing. Even though it means two birthday parties to plan in October!
