3 + 1 = 4

23 Sep

We are so excited to announce that we are expecting baby number 2!!!!  I’m a little over 12 weeks now and still feeling the first trimester yuckies.  I’m hoping to get past them soon.  Our due date is April 1st, no joke.  Lydia and this new little one will be almost exactly 2 years apart.  (Her birthday is April 15th.)  We got to hear the heartbeat at our doctor appointment yesterday, so wonderful!

With Lydia we decided not to find out if she was a boy or a girl and it was so fun to find out in the delivery room.  But we’ve decided to find out this time around to see which way is more fun.  I’m excited to find out.   Part of me wants a girl so that she can wear all Lydia’s super cute clothes again.  But it would be wonderful to have a boy too.  Its crazy to think that in less than 8 weeks we will know (if the baby cooperates).

I have lots of plans with how we will be transforming the two bedrooms downstairs to make room for the new baby.  The now office/craft room will be taking on another role of guest room.  I’m also finally planning to paint this room too, colors TBD.  The now guest room will then become Lydia’s big girl room.  We’ll be painting the room a pale pink (i think) and then moving in a twin bed and some toys.  I’m hoping to get all the painting and moving done by February so that Lydia has some time to adjust to her new bed and room before the baby comes.

I’m so excited to have a newborn again!

    Anna,

    I’m so excited for you two! How special that the kids will have birthdays in the same month (possibly) 🙂 If you go a little late, we could labor on the same day – I’m due April 6th!

    Congratulations you guys! I am so excited for you! Kyle and Olivia are 2 years and 2 days apart 🙂 They are so great with each other and it is SO awesome to see them interact! Two kids is just twice the love, smiles, laughter, and chaos in the house. Happy Baby planning!
