Most of you guessed correctly, I've got a bun in the oven.
I am freaking out. I have been wanting another baby for the last 4 years, but Jon was totally adamant that we were through. The kids and I have been trying to convince him to no avail. I had finally just started to accept that 4 really is a good number. Life is good right now, and it is only getting better. Then out of the blue, I'm pregnant.
I am so excited, but soooo terrified. There are a lot of things going on in our lives right now. My work is changing, money is pretty tight, it really doesn't seem like the best time for a baby. I am just believing that there is an amazing reason that Heavenly Father has chosen this time to send us a new one.
The kids are super excited, it was so fun telling them. Buffy was squealing with delight. They were all so happy. In some ways, it will be like having a 1st baby all over again. It will be just me and cinq (that's 5 for those of you who don't speak french). No toddler hanging around trying to smother the baby when I am not looking, no other diapers, no potty training. Plus I will have an almost 12 year old. Chloe was a huge help when Cooper was born, and that was 4 years ago, I can't imagine how much she will help with this one. Buffy loved helping with Cooper, but was so small she couldn't accomplish a lot, so she is so excited that she will be big enough to help me.
The big stress is, we were done. We have nothing for babies around here. No crib, no stroller, no clothes, no swings, no carseat, no nothing... I am also already freaking out about coming up with a cool name. I love different names, Andy's is the only super regular one, and that is cause he is named after his dad. So I am already writing lists, we will see...
I am due August 29th, what a fun summer. I can tell you that I will be living in my pool this summer. At least our birthday/holiday streak isn't broken.
August - Cinq
September - Me
October - Andy, halloween
November - Cooper, Thanksgiving
December - Chloe, Christmas
January - Jon, our anniversary
February - Buffy, Valentine's Day
Not a break in sight...
P.S. I have added a google search bar on the side. Use it please... If you are doing a search, might as well help cinq get a car seat while you are at it, right?!?
