Announcing...



Connor's going to be a BIG BROTHER!

I'm 12 weeks pregnant! We're very excited, but nervous, too! I'm so excited to hold a new baby in my arms again, to rock a new baby, to kiss a new baby. I'm also excted to watch Connor react with a new baby. But, I'm, also, nervous...nervous about chasing a two year old around when I'm big and pregnant, nervous about chasing a two year old around while carrying an infant, nervous about figuring out a routine that includes a toddler and an infant! But, I know that Connor will do great. He's such a sweet boy and he's growing and changing so much. I know that he will love and adore a baby brother or baby sister. And, this baby couldn't ask for a better brother! He's going to love being the "big boy!"

But, I have to admit, I'm also a little sad. I'm sad that Connor is old enough to be a big brother. I'm sad that he will no longer be the baby in the family. I'm sad that I will no longer be able to give him my undivided attention. We have such a good time together! I really enjoy just being with him, doing things with him, and going places with him. We love to run, chase, play trains, do puzzles, read, sing, run errands, etc. And, I feel like my time will be limited with a new baby. I hate to take away time from Connor! But, I, also, am sad that the baby will never experience the undivided attention that Connor has had over the past two years. I know that most second time moms probably feel similar. And, the excited, good feelings far outway the nervous, sad feelings. I am looking forward to seeing Connor learn to be a big brother to a new baby. I'm looking forward to seeing Connor love this baby. And, I'm looking forward to seeing Connor and this baby develop a brother/brother or brother/sister relationship that I pray will be strong and loving.

I look forward to the next 6 + months. I look forward to feeling the baby kick and watching it grow inside me. But, I, also, look forward to enjoying every minute that I can with Connor. He's going to be the best big brother, but I want to enjoy every last minute of him as "my baby boy!"

By the way, I'm due on October 4th.

Play Date at the Playground

I've been a little lazy about updating my blog lately. I need to do better!

We had a beautiful, warm weekend a couple of weeks ago and we headed to the playground with our friends Jordan and Annette and their precious 16 month old, Lydia. Connor had a great time (as he always does at the playground) and Lydia loved her first trip to the playground. Connor loves Jordan, Annette and Lydia. He talks about them all the time! They are definitely some of his favorite people to be around (and ours, too!).

I am looking forward to warmer weather again! Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny, warm day and Connor and I met Lydia and Annette at the playground. Today, however, is miserably cold and rainy! I cannot wait for springtime!
