You heard it, baby number 2 is on his/her way and we are so soo sooooooo excited about it!! We found out a few days before Thanksgiving and had great intention of keeping it a total secret until 3 months but I am pretty sure I told my mom and sister within 5 seconds of finding out, and then the rest of our family as we saw them! No hiding something good! I told Gavin as we were taking our mini family photo session, I literally took the test out of my pocket and he unwrapped the news of baby 2! It was a very very very special moment for us all.
The best part of it all is Wyatt is going to be a big brother! He isn’t quite sold on the idea of the whole thing but I can’t really blame him when I show him my niece’s plastic doll and then try to explain that there is one of those in my belly. He looks at me like I’m crazy, the same look I’m sure ill see often in his teen years. I know he will be such a great big brother, he lives for his little cousins and is so happy when he is around other kids. Gavin and I are both super close to our siblings, it really is the greatest blessing and the most fun, so I am happy that Wyatt and Baby 2 will be a little less than two years apart! Building our little tribe is the most meaningful part of life, I hope God blesses us with many healthy happy babies.
I am still on the early side, about 12.5 weeks but I literally feel I look/feel like I did at 5 months last time! I laughed when we found out we were pregnant and I swear I looked down and my button was undone on my pants, no tiny growing belly this time around haha. Crazy how your body knows what to do round 2 and I’m exited to show you my belly as it grows and grows these next 5ish months!
Knowing I am growing a little baby in my belly is obviously a wonderful thing but boy has this little one given me a run for my money. Unlike my pregnancy with Wyatt, I’ve been sick as a dog and left with what feels like zero energy! Chasing after Wyatt, stopping in the bathroom to vomit and then finding him in the kitchen with scissors in one hand, and a bag of cheese in the other has me laughing my way through it all. Plus Gavin, as always, is such a rockstar I’m lucky he is so hands on and takes care of us so well.
We will be finding out the gender here in the next few days and I have zero intention for a reveal party, we are WAY to excited to find out and I know the last thing ill be able to do is wait on the news!! I am in total boy mode, so much crazy happy fun with Wyatt I could totally see another little boy running around with us playing tractors and sitting in the dirt for hours. However, I need my girl. Even if we have ten babies ill need to have a little girl at some point, but my trust is in God he will give us exactly what we need!
I have a big smile typing this as we are about to share the next chapter of our life with you all. Growing a family is so sweet when we have so many wonderful people to share it with, I genuinely enjoy hearing from you all on here or in person! We feel incredibly blessed, happy, and excited for baby number 2! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!
