{ growing }

This weekend we had some exciting news to share with our family and friends
and now I’m excited to share it with all of you out there… whoever it is that reads this J

Well, a picture speaks a thousand words so here:

We’re having a baby!!

We found out the day after I got back from Costa Rica.
It's been the longest month ever!!

This past month have been great and horrible depending on the moment.
Just to name a few:

waking up one to three times a night for no apparent reason
puking… or worse, feeling like I have to puke all day but not actually puking
ever tightening pants, not tight enough maternity pants
dishes, dust, and laundry piling up while I’m lying on the couch all day
not having energy to play with my 18-month-old
headaches from lack of caffeine

Jacob will have a friend to play with!
the thought of having another little one to kiss and cuddle!
satisfying cravings… like buffalo wings, yum!
an excuse to lay on the couch all day
gracefully accepting congratulatory remarks over and over
seeing smiles on grandparents’, aunts’, and uncles’ faces
thinking about what the baby will look like
getting on Pinterest to look at ideas for a shared sibling room

I think the best thing about this pregnancy has been having a point of reference.
I know there is an end in sight and I’ll be a version of my normal self in just about another 4 weeks.

I can’t explain how excited I am for the remaining 32 weeks to fly by.
Oh! To hold another little peanut and take them home with us forever!!

I just can’t wait.

yay! i can relate from my pregnancy with my little boy. the only thing i would change on that list: getting ideas for a shared sibling bedroom would definitely be on the horrible list for me, stresssssful! but I know you're so creative that it an opportunity to let that creativity shine!
