If you didn’t catch the big announcement on Instagram, we are so excited to share the news that we are expecting baby #2!! Everett is going to be a big brother and the entire family is over the moon!
I know we waited a little longer than most people to announce our big news, but we’ve been trying to take every opportunity to share the news in person with our family + friends before making it social media official. We’ll be sharing quite a bit more now that the cat’s out of the bag though. 😉
Currently, I’m 22 weeks. A little over the half way mark and things are moving right along. The first trimester was a little rough…to put it mildly! Quite honestly, I felt horrible and absolutely drained of any energy until about week 16, which was the beginning of 2017. The fall was filled with one sickness after another in our house, which was brutal on top of the morning sickness that seemed to last all day + night. That’s why I’ve been mostly MIA the last few months, but I really appreciate you guys sticking with me in the meantime!
Every time I think about Everett becoming a big brother, I get a little emotional. I love how excited he is already – he talks to baby + kisses my belly, which just melts my heart. But if I’m being 100% honest, I’m also a little terrified to make the transition from one kiddo to two. Everett has had our complete attention for the last 2 years and his whole world is about to change in ways that I can’t even predict.
People say that kids are adaptable and we’ll all figure out a new normal, but I’ve also heard that the transition from one to two is the hardest. So help me please! How did you prepare your kids for a new addition to the family? I’d love to hear any suggestions you have to help prepare our little dude for his upcoming big brother duties.
Thank you for all the love + support over the last few weeks! It truly means the world.
