We had a very early ultrasound confirm the sex of baby. Actually, the technicians weren't even allowed to comment on the subject so early on, but- it was evident and there was little room for error (let me tell you!). I'm 15 weeks along and already have a bump to prove it. After weeks of processing this info (and trying to ignore it) and enduring the morning sickness, i think we're pretty darn excited. seriously, is first trimester fun for anybody?!
Sometimes, the best things in life, you don't choose, they just happen and, It took me a while to come around to this, i admit. i mean, i know it all sounds a bit silly now but, i had a really hard time letting go of my fears and the fact that i didn't plan this! How could i be a good mommy to 2 babies at once? Do i have enough love, time and attention for another one? I deffinatly don't have the energy. When does one find the time for things like showering when there are 2 kiddos? I realize tons of mommies are doing it and have done it- and i salute you and ask for advice! But, i think this feels just a little bit harder knowing that i won't have help- we just moved 2000 miles away from our good friends and families (which is another post completely that i have yet to compose).
Babies are a blessing; that we know for sure. we sure can't imagine life without our little griffey motoring around. And, i can't keep from thinking this new little guy wanted so badly to come to earth and be with his big brother. the boys will be 18 months apart and i can't wait to watch them pal around together.
