Home > Family > Our Family Is Growing


If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably already heard the news. Our family is growing and we are beyond excited! We will be a party of four very soon and John is going to be a big brother. Oh the thought of him meeting his baby brother or sister in November brings tears to my eyes. We are SO very happy.

True to my last announcement, I was afraid to share the news until well after the first trimester. I’ve been avoiding outfit posts and camouflaging my belly in updates where parts of me were required, but there is no hiding this bump anymore lol. With my first pregnancy, I lost the baby at 13 weeks, right after I’d graduated from all the IVF meds and we’d started telling friends and family, so we were overly cautious with our “John and baby number two” announcements. I’m more than halfway through this pregnancy, and so far everything is going so well!

I hope to start blogging more frequently, now that I’m past the first trimester fog with a 2-year-old attached to my leg at all times lol. We’ve tried to tell John that there’s a baby in my belly and he just says, “nooooooo”! He is just the sweetest cutest boy ever and he’s going to be such an amazing big brother. Meanwhile, we’re getting ready for another round of sleepless nights, and looking forward to it. Once again, we’re not going to find out the gender, and the anticipation is getting the best of me! I’m 22 weeks along now and the doctor has known the gender for 8 of those weeks! So far, I’ve held strong on not finding out… emphasis on “so far” ;)
