We are so excited to add this new member to our family. Life is definitely going to be more interesting and I can't wait to see how this tiny little person adds to the dynamic of our little family.
No one is more excited than Mckinley. She is already telling everyon le that she is the big sister. The night we told her we were snuggling in bed and talking and she asked me if God had really put a baby in my belly. Then she later her head on my stomach and said she could hear the babies heart beeping (beating). I just love her so much and I can't wait to see how she handles this big change.
We have already started talking about how things will be different but the big things we will try to keep the same. One thing I know we will work very hard to continue is our nighttime bedtime routine. I used to put Mckinley to bed each night but I felt like Brent was missing out on this so we starte tag teaming it. Now Brent reads the books and I snuggle and say prayers with her before she lays down for the night. We are going to try our best to continue this because it is such an important part of our day so we will just trade off and maybe move bedtime around to make sure we can still get all of our snuggles in.
It has been interesting to see how different this pregnancy is than when I was pregnant with Mckinley. I have definitely had many days where I have felt hungover, but for the most part it has been an easy pregnancy so far. It is definitely different being pregnant he second time around especially with your first born wanting to play my little ponies and Uno everyday.
I haven't taken any belly pictures yet because nothing has really changed. Once I pop I will try to take weekly pictures again. I love looking back on my pictures and seeing how my belly grew and changed.
I am not sure when we will find out what baby D is, but I go back in 2 weeks to take a peek and do some tests. I will only be 12 weeks which is usually too early to tell. Mckinley of course wants a girl baby and mommy would love a boy baby, but a sister would be fun and easy because we have soooooooo much girl stuff.
Now all we can do it sit and wait to find out and pray I keep feeling good. Wish us luck and send any advice you have for raising 2 kids (gulp)!
