This announcement, well two announcements has been hard to keep quiet these last few weeks! I have been bursting at the seams and I am pretty sure I have been driving Tom crazy! I know the kids have been antsy as well to spill the beans and have been asking me how long until we can tell people 🙂
In case you missed it last night on facebook because I could not hold it in anymore we made one of our BIG announcements ….
Little sister Alyssa is in training by McKenzie and Logan on How to be a BIG Sister! That’s right there will be another little one making their appearance in September! My due date is September 8th – my mom is hoping for this one to be born on her birthday which is September 5th 🙂
Here is the little one’s first photo which was taken last month 🙂
The kids are excited, however we have one BIG fight amongst them all…. they all want the baby to sleep in their rooms! I am not sure how long that will last once the baby gets here LOL but for now I am enjoying listening to them argue over who is going to feed the baby, change the baby, sleep with the baby and pick out the baby’s outfits each morning 🙂
In 2012 I was questioning if our family was complete, and in 2013 our family was complete, for that time anyway. The baby bug and the feeling of not being complete started hitting me again about 2 years ago – when our life finally became settled, we bought a house and the craziness of moving just about every 18 months or so had stopped. I should have known that it would sneak up on me, since I was a kid I always said I wanted to have 6 kids LOL. But this one – this one will be our 4th and last. With an 11 year age difference between our oldest and this one it will have its own challenges for me as a mom, well that AND Tom said he is taking a trip to the doctor LOL.
The other BIG announcement is that behind the scenes I have been working hard these past few weeks to get in touch with baby brands and work on a Baby Product Guide!! I haven’t had a baby in 6 years (the youngest just turned 6 this month) and OH MY GOSH! Overwhelming is an understatement as to how many different baby products there are now! I was browsing around different sites and there is JUST.SO.MUCH! So much that is new, so much that has technology that is soooo different then when Alyssa was a baby and way way way different when the other two were babies! So I am going to work on checking them out, finding out the good and the bad about things on the market for babies and new moms and hope to snag some really awesome giveaways for you guys as well!! I am going to work on taking the guess work out of it when you are shopping for things baby needs and wondering how easy something is to put together ect as best as I can.
Plus I am going to be rounding up all sorts of information on things like Baby registries, where to register ect to help you guys out!
I am excited to share this adventure with all of you, when I started blogging Alyssa was not born but I didn’t blog back then like I do now and I didn’t start blogging like I do now until Alyssa was about a year old. So be on the look out for updates as I am going to update you as everything continues and if you are expecting Congrats! And please share with me your good news! I love hearing about others welcoming new little ones into their families
