Preggo Thoughts.

27 weeks along.
Lately I've been reflecting a lot on how my life has been for the past 2 1/2 years - adding our little boy to our family, traveling to a few more exciting places, and moving to a new town. The big change that's upon us now (the arrival of Baby #2) seems to (strangely) be the biggest and scariest of all.

You see, the arrival of little C was scary and fun and exciting and, well, wonderful. I had no idea what to expect or how it would truly affect my day-to-day life. From the moment he arrived, he blessed us in ways we could not have imagined. Although I know our second little one will be a precious gift just like his big brother, I can't help but wonder how I'm going to juggle everything I already juggle now. A part of me keeps reminding myself, at least you won't be pregnant anymore. 

I suppose there's an element of excitement to the unknown. I don't know what this little guy will look like, what his personality will be, or which baby foods he'll prefer. The nursery is alllmost ready (can't wait to post pictures), but we're still kind of going back and forth on a name. Everything seems a bit chaotic and rough around the edges. I guess I thought my Type A personality would be a tad more Type A this time around!

I know these next 3 months will fly by very quickly (it seems like just yesterday I was taking the pregnancy test - GAH!). And then this season of my life will be over. At least until we decide to try for a third baby - if that time comes. So I'm trying to enjoy it. This could be my last time incubating a tiny blessing.

But the best part is - a precious newborn will be arriving soon. I love newborns. It's been so long since we've had one in our home.

And I can't wait! Bring on the sleep deprivation :)


  1. He's not pining, he's passed on. This parrot is no more. He has ceased to be. He's expired and gone to meet his maker. He's a stiff, bereft of life, he rests in peace. If you hadn't have nailed him to the perch he'd be pushing up the daisies. He's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot!”

  2. Those thoughts and feelings are all very normal, and I also can't wait to see your little guy! Seems like this pregnancy flew by...well, for me, anyway. Probably not for you! ;)
