BABY #2

Thank you all so much for the excitement and words of congratulations on our little announcement! We can't wait to welcome this new little blessing! I am 14 weeks and finally starting to feel like a human again. I had similar all-day, first-trimester nausea as I did when I was pregnant with Josephine.  Those first couple months are all a blur. It was full-on survival mode around here trying to wrangle a toddler while not feeling so hot. The icing on the cake was a 10-day business trip Pete had smack dab in the middle of it all. So, yeah, things were a bit all over the place. Lots of laying on the couch for me and lots of screen time for Josephine. It wasn't pretty. You do what you gotta do, though.

We have had a couple of doctor's appointments and the little one is doing great! We brought Josephine to the most recent one and she was obsessed with hearing the "heart beep"--the doctor (bless her heart) let Josephine listen to it no less than five times. It is just as surreal and down-right amazing to hear this one's heart beat as it was the first time around. I am due on December 8th, which just so happens to be my mom's and my grandmother's birthday. No pressure little one ;) And we will for sure be finding out the sex. If you ask Josephine, it's a baby sister in my tummy. I'm kind of thinking the same.

Being pregnant this time around is so different, as I expected it would be. With another child in the mix there isn't time to sit and think about it too much. I often forget there is a little life growing inside of me. When I was pregnant with Josephine I was super aware of every little thing that was going on inside my body. I read all the books and downloaded all the apps. Every little tinge or sensation was grounds for consulting the google. In a lot of ways it's all been a lot more laid back this time around. I always wondered how anyone could go through a pregnancy once you already have a child (or children!) to care for and actually survive it in one piece and with your sanity. It was something I was really concerned about. But I'm realizing that you just let go of a lot more things. The house will be messy. The laundry will pile up. Your toddler will probably watch a cringe-worthy amount of television. And you will all survive it. Thaaaaank goodness!

Can't wait to share more of this ever-growing belly with you guys! xo
