I'm about 18 weeks pregnant right now, and I feel great. Partially because I'm well into the 2nd trimester by now... but more likely because it's summer and my husband and I haven't worked in over a month (teacher perks...) It's amazing how good you feel when your #1 priority every day is to relax and have fun with your family.
Emma is very excited. She knows there's a baby in Mommy's tummy, and that the baby is kicking me (which she tries to demonstrate with her own little feet!) She likes to kiss my belly and tell me that she's kissing the baby. She also occasionally will tell me whether the baby is happy or sad- haha!
I hesitate to say that Emma will be a new big sister, because I still consider the baby that we lost to a miscarriage in February to be Baby #2. But since Emma won't actually get to meet that sibling until heaven, I cannot wait to see how she interacts with Baby #3 when he or she makes their arrival this winter.
My due date is December 29th, which I think is so fun. I asked Kevin if he would rather have the last baby in 2016 (for that tax break!) or have the first baby of 2017. He said, "First baby of 2017, no question. We'd be in the news!"
Which one would you prefer? :)
So, that's our big news- thanks for reading. And make sure that you follow me on Instagram, because I'll be posting lots of pictures of the new nursery (and, of course, the obligatory baby bump photo or two!) in the next few months. I'd love to have you join me along the journey.
