Our Family Is Growing

Posted in: Family


As I have said numerous times, last year, 2015, was the best year of my life. And on the last day of the best year of my life I found out I was pregnant again.

Seriously, 2o15, you were too good.

We are insanely happy about the arrival of our second child and honestly, can’t believe it’s happening. I was so unsure if I wanted more kids while pregnant with Thomas. I went with the approach, lets have this one and see. But as soon as Thomas was born, that day, I said to Andrew, I want to do this again at the end of the year.

And here we are.

It was such a surreal moment at my obstetrician’s appointment last month when we were looking at the baby on the screen. Andrew was holding Thomas up to the monitor saying, ‘Look, that’s your brother or sister,’ and Thomas was fixated on the image. I just looked at Thomas and thought, this is blowing my mind. Last year I was looking at you on that screen and here you are, looking at the same screen at your sibling.

With Thomas, we found out the sex early on but as this will be our final baby, we are going to wait till the end to see what we’re having. We want to experience what it feels like not knowing whether it’s a boy or girl for 9 months. I’m the worst with waiting so this will be interesting. Andrew thinks we’re having a girl and I think it’s a boy. One of us is right but we will have to wait until August to see who.

August can’t come fast enough. We can’t wait to start life with our whole family.
