My Life Parenting Pregnancy

Another Baby

We’re going to have another baby!

Eleanor and Me

Also, I think our matching mother/daughter dresses are funny. ;)

This pregnancy has been less worrisome than the first, but I have been exhausted (and nauseous). I’m looking forward to getting a little energy back and feeling better as I head into the second trimester.

Eleanor and Me

I’m due February 12 and Eleanor won’t turn two until April 29, so we’ll have two under two for a while. Sounds… challenging! But it also sounds fun.

    Congratulations! That is so very exciting! My husband and I just found out we are having our second as well! Due in April…so my two will be just under two years apart. No better gift you can give your kids than siblings!
    Best wishes for a great rest of the pregnancy!

    So happy for you guys! I am an “Irish Triplet” – my brother is 10 mos older and my sister is just under 2 years younger and I never knew how my mother stayed sane (maybe she didn’t) until a few month ago when we added 2 toddlers into our family. David will be 3 next month while Aubrey will be 2 the following month. And our oldest Emi is 8. It’s a lot of monkey-see, monkey-do in our household! Never a dull moment. Hope your nausea goes away very soon so you can have a blissful pregnancy getting prepared for baby #2!

    Ah, Congrats to you and your family! What an exciting time for all of you :)

    As a side note: You commented on your matching dresses and it reminded me of when I was a little girl… My mother use to sew matching outfits for herself and me. My older sister called us “The Sheet and the Pillowcase” which to this day makes me giggle just a bit!

    Looking forward to watching your family grow! :)

    And you were right! Mondays ARE a great day to share news.

    (And no, I haven’t announced publicly yet since I’m still in the 1st trimester, but I’m 99% sure that no one I know is reading this.)

      We’re eager to find out what gender the baby is, but not far along enough to tell. Another two months or so! The nursery will stay a nursery, and Eleanor will be getting a new bedroom.

    Congratulations!! My two are 15 mths apart. The first couple weeks will be an adjustment. After that it will be perfect. Having the kids so close together is the best choice I’ve ever made. They are 10 and 9 now and the very best of friends (boy and girl). Plus you don’t hear “Mom I’m bored” quite as much. Because, they have a built in playmate. :)
