Baby Two

We're very excited to announce that Avery is going to be a big brother! As of our last doctor's appointment the ultrasound is showing that baby two is due July 15th (our date was changed after the first appointment). I am so excited to have a summer baby. I'm looking forward to the time off with my hubby and toddler by the pool, helping daddy with his latest project, playing on the swing set and riding bikes. Then once baby gets here we'll have some time as a family to enjoy our new addition before daddy has to go back to work.

So far, mommy has been pretty sick with this baby, but I feel like it may be beginning to subside a little. The doctor wasn't very happy about my weight loss and said that if it doesn't change they will put me on meds for the sickness. I'm very thankful to be feeling less tired than I remember being with Avery and therefore have been getting a lot more done :) Cooking isn't something that is on that list often though! Why is it that you smell all of the WORST ingredients in a dish? Laundry, decorating for Christmas, and wrapping all of the presents that are in is among the complete list. I also saved myself some stress and energy this year by shopping online! Wow! What a way to go... It still took me the better part of two days to find everything, but I did it all sitting down :)

Avery has big plans for his little sister or brother and he's learning more everyday about this baby business. If you ask him where our baby is he will tell you his belly some days and others he is certain that there is NO baby in his belly only in mommy's. When you ask him where our baby can sleep he will tell you that his baby is going to sleep in his bed WITH HIM! Haha. Since Avery is learning to potty he talks a lot about baby pooping in the potty and NOT a diaper :) He is going to be the best big brother. He already looks forward to holding his baby and helping mommy & daddy take care of it.

Here is our sweet baby at 9 weeks and 2 days:


The little circle beside of baby's head is the yoke sack and is perfectly normal. We told Avery that it looks like a little balloon with a string. Avery likes that. :)

im so glad that you finally are going to have your "little girl" (finger crossed) lol girls are so much fun and so soft and cute and sweet!

Haha. Well, we will be happy with either a boy or girl. I want a girl eventually, but it would be fun for Avery to have a little brother close to his age. Not to mention how much easier it would be right now... But I'd LOVE a girl too! So, we're just happy about it :) Thanks Kellie!

Please tell Pen Pen how happy I am for her and all of you on grandbaby #2. I cannot see her blog. I am having issues with my hotmail account and have deactivated my fb account again. Thanks,

By the dates on this blog it looks like baby #2 may be here. I wish you all the best. You have a nice blog, I hope you find the time to continue, but with two little ones that may be near impossible for a while. I am just curious because I am in the childcare field,are you a stay at home mom or do you use a nanny or other child care provider? If you do use a provider, how did you find her? I hope you post a picture of the baby. I love children and I think their beautiful little faces make the internet a more wonderful place to visit!

Best Wishes,
