The Team Has A New Recruit

That's right! I am pregnant! We are expecting our newest teammate April 21st!!

That means.... Alexander will be a big brother!! :) He is super excited!! Well, he doesn't know it yet, but he will be! They will be almost exactly 2 years apart with Alex turning 2 in May. Not sure if this is crazy or perfect. I will admit I am very nervous about juggling 2!

Waiting for Daddy to come home so he can read my shirt and find out! (Apparently most children don't become big brothers till at least 2T so this was the smallest shirt I could find!)WE'RE EXCITED!!

We got to tell Honey in person too!

And then Alex got to tell Papa Wes and Nani! At first my dad thought the shirt was about the TV show- Big Brother. Nani had to spell it out for him! haha!
I am finally getting out of the nasty first trimester yuck phase! Hallelujah! It has NOT been fun and NOT easy having to take care of Alex! Probably the worst was changing poopy diapers when already feeling like throwing up! fun. It was pretty similar to when I was pregnant with Alex though. It just never seems to end and I do believe it is the worst feeling in the whole world. This is kinda why the blog has been a little slow lately. I would sleep everyday during naptime (I am trying to curb this slowly) and go to lie in bed as soon as Alex goes to bed at night leaving little time to do just about anything!

Everything is going well so far with the pregnancy and baby! We have actually had two ultrasounds so far (because the first was so early we couldn't tell much). And the doc was pleased with the growth and how everything looks. I loved seeing this ultrasound because the baby was already kicking and reaching all around...so cute already!
We cant wait to find out if its a boy or girl towards the end of the month! Yea!!! And it will be so fun to be pregnant with my sister...the babies will be about 4 months apart and I have decided: they will be best friends! :)

Hnag in there...- sleep when Alex sleeps and don't feel bad about letting him watch hours and hours of tv when you are not feeling well! haha....mickey mouse clubhouse totally got me through those rough days! 2 years apart is great...challenging at times but I am sure if they were 10 years apart it would stil be challenging!
