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! You two look lovely :)

    I’m due with my first January 30th. I actually thought you might be pregnant since there’s been a lot of baby stuff on here recently (cribs and nurseries) that I’ve really enjoyed!

    Congratulations again!

    so exciting! mine are 23 months apart- the first four months were HARD. but now that the youngest is 9 months and (kind of) sleeping, things get better and better each day. congrats!

    I did it too. Mine are 20 months apart. It was hard in the early days, but they’re really good friends now. Use any family you can get your hands on to help in the early days. It’s fun and so worth it! Enjoy.

    Congrats! Two under two is challenging — our girls are a year and two weeks apart, so I speak from experience! ;-)

  12. Monique August 12, 2010 at 11:25 pm #

    Congrats! That’ll be a challenge, but a lot of fun.

    Congratulations – what wonderful news! I am due with my first on 12 February too – May sure was good to us :)

    Love the yellow dresses!!!! Congrats! I didn’t see this one coming! lol I am almost 29 years old and I don’t even have one baby yet!!! ; ) That is very exciting!!!

    I’m two months into having two girls seventeen months apart. During my entire second pregnancy everyone told me how hard it was going to be. Maybe it’s because I exspected the worst based on those comments or maybe because my first was born 8 weeks early (which was extremely difficult compared to a full term baby)….in all honesty it’s been amazing! Seeing my two girls together is heaven on earth.

  17. Noelle August 13, 2010 at 4:07 pm #

    I’m so excited! you are due a week and a half before me!!!!! It’ll be fun to read about your experiences, hopefully you’ll have some clothes recommendations! I have no idea what to do :) haha.

  21. Becky August 14, 2010 at 1:41 pm #

    Congratulations! You look great. I’m due with #2 in a few weeks, so we’ll also be juggling 2 under 2 for a bit. Best wishes for your pregnancy! :)

    That’s wonderful news – congratulations!! I followed your pregnancy with Eleanor closely as my little Grace was born not long after. How nice that Eleanor will have a sibling close in age.

    Ok, I am really behind on my reader and just saw this news. Many many many congratulations to you, Brandon and Eleanor! She will be a fantastic big sister. Will the babes be sharing a room? Looking forward to seeing Eleanor’s big girl space.

    Hmmm, I wondered why there were no photos of you after telling us you had shed all the baby weight. Now I know.

    CONGRATS!!!

  30. Cora D August 17, 2010 at 11:46 am #

    Congratulations! I too just found out I’m pregnant with my second – my daughter will 1 1/2 when the baby is born, so we’ll also have two under two. Though we don’t know each other, it’s nice to know of someone else going through the same thing.

    Take care!

  31. Jennifer August 19, 2010 at 10:10 am #

    how wonderful! congratulations! you both look darling in yellow :)

    Congratulations!!! Oh, I read your last “making room for baby” and I realize that I haven´t read your blog before the 16th August… I hope all come on wheels and your family enjoy this second gift with a lot of health!!!

  37. Rebecca August 23, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    I had had two under two and loved it! Now they are 7 & 6 and usually great friends. It’s lovely when their other friends can’t play that they can play with eachother. Congrats!

  38. Anna August 24, 2010 at 1:04 pm #

    Wow – congrats! You and Eleanor look fantastic. I’m pregnant too and due Feb 15th! This is my first though, so I basically have no idea what I’m doing. I can’t wait to follow along with you online and hear how the baby renovations are going. My fiance and I are looking for a house so we’ll be doing house projects soon too!

  39. Victoria August 24, 2010 at 7:26 pm #

    congratulations! I’m a Feb baby (the 19th) myself and it’s a great month. He or she’d be an aquarius–they’re destined for greatness!

  40. Melissa August 26, 2010 at 9:14 am #

    Many congratulations and hope you will be feeling better soon! I’m due the end of February myself with my third, I just had twins in November and I wonder everyday how I’ll pull it off, but somehow we all do:) Eleanor will be a wonderful big sister and they will be great friends!

  41. Susie August 26, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    Sorry I’m kind late to the game here, but just read this and was so surprised and delighted for you — Congratulations!! Eleanor is going to be a big sister — how exciting!

  42. Mel September 2, 2010 at 2:24 pm #

    Congrats. I just found out that we are expecting baby #2 on April 29th, 2011. We currently have an 11 month old little girl and our two will be 19 months apart. So I’ll be joining the group of two under two. Congrats again.

  43. tula@whorange September 10, 2010 at 4:40 pm #

    CONGRATS, NICOLE!!! xoxo

  44. Lucianna September 25, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

    that is so cute! I have two boys that are 11 months apart to the date. They are currently 6 and 17 months (my oldest was born on April 29th 2009!!! – and the youngest on March 29th 2010), I drag myself around, that is how tired I am… but it gets better, I hope. Anyway, good luck and congrats!
