To be honest, last time I was pregnant I took for granted what a blessing God has given us to bring His children into this world and entrusts them to our care. Instead I would get caught up in all the "not so fun" things about being pregnant and the craziness that would come with having more children. After losing the twins I realized how fragile that gift really is so this time around it has helped me try to overlook not sleeping well for 9 months, swelling everywhere and the crazy transition to adding another child and focus on the sweet spirit who will be coming into our family.
|I caved and let Eric take a picture of me since I haven't posted one for awhile and notice the stocking holder behind me that I crafted this week of feeling good.|
Now for the "Big" announcement! We had our ultrasound appointment today and since Eric and I both agree that we are not the couple who likes the surprise when it comes to finding out the gender of our kids we found out what baby #2 will be.
May I introduce miss Livy Caldwell
That's right we are having another sweet baby girl and we both couldn't be happier. I think Eric secretly likes his daddy's girl and is thrilled to have another. They do have a way of melting your heart. And as you have seen we already have a name. (It's official people so we can skip the "naming" conversation, which with Mia would go on for hours sometimes!)
