So, I think everyone I know already knows this, but I have to make the “official” blog entry, right?
Yep, that’s right! We are going to be parents again! We were a bit surprised at first (shocked is an even better term) but happy nonetheless. I am really excited about adding a new member to our family and am thankful that I am going to have the opportunity to do so. I love being a mom, and can’t imagine my life without the beautiful children that make every day special for me.
The kids took the news really well. We told them by putting the sonogram on the table and asking them if they knew what it was. Zoe immediately said “it’s a picture of a baby” and Landon said it looked like a rock. Zoe then asked whose baby it was and when I didn’t answer she looked at me and then she put it all together. the next thought that occurred to her was that she was going to be 15 years older than this baby, but she decided that was going to be okay with her. Landon’s reaction was a little different in that he realized he was going to “finally be older than someone in his family!”
Besides Tony, the only other person that knew for awhile was my sister. I was so excited that I just had to tell someone! She was great and didn’t breathe a word about it! Telling our parents was fun because the looks of surprise on their faces were priceless. No one saw it coming, especially since my kids are already so much older.
As of today I am 10 weeks and 3 days. I have a long way to go but already I know I’ll be glad to be out of the first trimester; this nausea thing has got to go! August 6th, here we come!
