What is Sweet Pea Trying to Share?

What does my shirt say?



Really Mommy?!?!  Yeah!  (I'm clapping, but my serious look is because I'm currently scheming about all the trouble we two can get into.)



It's true!  We are expecting baby girl #2 in early February!

We are all experiencing a whirlwind of emotions and have been since we found out on June 11th!  Since this blog is supposed to be my tool for expressing all my feelings, keeping this bottled up has been really hard and I'm sure it has contributed to why I've been MIA a lot recently.  I'm so excited to finally share this with everyone!

We decided to do an early test for chromosomal abnormalities and the results all came back negative so it looks like we will have a typical baby girl in 6 1/2 months!  Having the shock of Sweet Pea's diagnosis at her delivery has made us very gun shy and so we wanted to know if this little baby would be typical or extra special.  Daddy even wanted the gender to be known this time so it's very strange knowing that what I'm used to calling an "it" is really a she!  So exciting and makes planning things a lot easier, but yet very odd since we found out at delivery last time.

We are very excited and extremely nervous and so many other emotions all rolled together!  I'm sure to share some more details over the coming days and weeks, but for now, let's just celebrate!

  2. I'm so happy for you! I'm surprised that I sit here getting teary because we too had a lot of surprises with our Jack. We didn't know his gender or his DS diagnosis until birth...and he's our first. SO, I am overcome with happiness for you and realizing that I am still pretty "gun shy" at this point too. CONGRATS!
