Yup! Our little GIRL should be here before we know it! Time sure has flown by with baby two in fact as I type this, I’m approaching week 18! Pregnant with number two is much much different, instead of sitting in bed with a bag of popcorn and a Snickers,I’m chasing Wyatt around and making sure to soak up these last few months I’ll have just the two of us all day. This may come across wrong, but I’ve actually shed a tear thinking how little time left I have with just him and it really makes me want to take full advantage of it since it will never be the same. My family jokes that we forget I’m even pregnant because we don’t have much time to sit around and chat about how many weeks I am when we have babies crawling and playing everywhere! I have to say how much I love the way it is though, our little girl is going to be thrown into the craziness of family and lots of cousins and I know she will love it.
We found out the gender about a month ago, through a new blood test they do on the mother (baby isn’t harmed) called the Panorama test! My cousin Molly told me you can take it as early as 9 weeks, so we waited till 12 weeks to take it then sat anxiously waiting the results! Gavin and I were so eager to find out, and thankfully we didn’t wait long because they arrived later that week. I had an inkling feeling due to how sick I was, we were having a girl and when I opened the results, I was ecstatic and super emotional. I remember texting my mom saying “I hope my little girl loves me as much as I love you!” I love my mom so dang much I couldn’t believe God decided to bless me with the opportunity to raise a little girl and have a built in best friend forever.
Gavin was super happy too, but along with the look of happiness I could see sheer terror as so much went through his mind as a new dad of a little girl. A dads role is so incredibly important in a girl’s life, and I know he won’t take his role lightly. He and Wyatt are going to be extremely protective. in fact I already feel bad for any guy that ever looks her way. We have had so many funny conversations about all that he has coming his way, he knows he is going to be at the beck and call of our little girl and there will be nothing he can do about it. I can’t wait to watch him melt at the sight of his little princess. Her day of birth will be game over for him, I told him he might as well accept defeat now 🙂
Wyatt doesn’t really understand any of it, for all he sees, mama has been getting chubbier by the day and keeps pointing to her growing belly trying to get him to say sister. I think ill wait until I’m farther along to try to get him to understand. I have been saying her name quite a bit so hopefully when this tiny little potato shows up he will be able to at least call her by name! Yes, we have picked a name and because I love having you all along this fun journey with us I want let you in on the fun and share the name we have chosen, Rosie Jane!
Rosie is the name of Gavin’s Aunt that I just adore, and Jane is my grandmother’s middle name! Together, her full name brings together both sides of our family and it feels just right!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, you guys are appreciated!
