Baby Brother

This post should be a lot more creative, but I spent my day washing & sorting boxes {and boxes} of Jackson's old baby clothing, and cleaning/selling Jackson's queen size bed to make room for a smaller bed and a crib, so I'm pretty exhausted, but I figured I should at least blog about our big news from yesterday.

It's a boy!

More details, stories, excitement to come, when I can keep my eyes open.

Big Brother

Jackson is going to be a big brother! We're so excited to be adding a new addition to our family. I am 16 weeks along and the baby is due September 17th (although I'm already planning on the the baby arriving about a week late based on my last pregnancy). This pregnancy has been just as rough as the first, although I have a 2 year-old this time around, which means it's been a lot rougher. Being sick with a little kid is hard, and makes you feel guilty and useless. But we have survived so far and I am feeling mostly better. I still get a little sick in the evenings but nothing compared to what has been happening the last few months. And the last few days I've started to feel little kicks, which makes it all worth it. I'm excited to start enjoying the fun part of pregnancy.

My fabulous mom decided to fly out and help when I was about 10 weeks along, which was when I was at my worst. It was fabulous to have her come. She is the greatest house guest in the world and definately welcome back when the baby arrives. She did all the cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, Jackson entertaining/diapers/bedtime, and even left our freezer stocked for the weeks to come. I seriously would not have survived this time around without her.

Of course she brought gifts, including a giant Lightening McQueen coloring book.

Jackson helped her make cookies. He was very good at unwrapping the Rolos without eating any, until his mom broke the rules and ate one. It was downhill from there.

Drumming like Daddy

Thanks for all your help, Mom. We love you!

We'll find out in a few weeks if it's a boy or girl, so stay tuned.
