For today’s blog post, I’m excited to finally spill the beans on some big news: we’re expecting! Baby #2 is due on September 19th!
That post I wrote about whether we plan to stay in our house for the long haul may have given it away, or at least led to some suspicions — so in the interest of full disclosure, this impending new arrival is definitely what’s been fueling the desire for more space. We’ve actually been finalizing some remodeling plans, which I hope to discuss in a blog post very soon!
As far as the pregnancy goes, so far it’s been similar (though not identical) to my first pregnancy — no morning sickness or other symptoms to speak of, other than the self-inflicted ones like avoiding caffeine and alcohol and the like. I’m currently 14 weeks along, and just starting to get to the point of wanting to switch to maternity clothes, even though any “baby bump” isn’t very obvious or well-defined yet.
And as for Lillian, I’m not sure she fully understands she’s going to be a big sister yet, though we still have lots of time to try to explain and prepare her for the idea. On the plus side though, when posed the question “Would you like to have a baby brother or sister?” she enthusiastically replies “yes!” and she seems to do really well with the babies she’s exposed to at daycare, so hopefully these are all good signs.
Anyway, that’s the big announcement to break the radio silence on this blog for the past few weeks — more details to follow shortly!
