…Am I going to be outnumbered! Not that I’m not outnumbered as it is already. I grew up in a home with 3 brothers, and I live with my Hubby, my sweet Little G, and our 2 lovable Boxers, and now we’re going to be adding another BOY to the mix!!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m absolutely thrilled that we have another HEALTHY baby boy coming and I know God has a plan all worked out for me, I just think that before he gives me my sweet little princess he wants to test me ;-)
Honestly, the more I think about it…the more excited I get! I mean how cool is it going to be to have 2 little boys that are 18 months apart! They’ll only be one grade apart in school, and I just have this feeling that they are going to be Best Friends, and probably worst enemies at times too but one thing is for sure, and that is that they will have one another. To play with, to look up to, to look out for, and to beat up on for the rest of their lives. Regardless of what they go through, they will always have each other, and that just makes me so happy! Not to say there isn’t a chance that they will be polar opposites, but it doesn’t matter, they will still have one another. And to me that is just the neatest thing. Not to mention, they can share toys, and clothes, and I get to dress them in matching outfits for Holidays!!! I don’t know about you but I always think it’s so adorable when I’m at Church on Sunday and I see 2 little boys, dressed up in similar outfits. I just love it, and you better believe that’s going to be me, and my boys :-)
Now that we know what we are having, we get to go through the whole picking the perfect name process again which was a little difficult with Garrett because Dan and I couldn’t agree on anything, fingers crossed it’s a bit easier this time around. I also get to start picking out color schemes for the new bedroom! We have yet to decide if we’re going to keep G in the room he’s in so as not to throw too much change to him at once (plus he is soooooo comfortable in his room I hate to take him from it) but the new room that we will be making a baby room is a bit bigger and farther from our bedroom, and eventually we would like to have Garrett and his little brother in the bigger room together so what do we do??? Do we switch G to the new room now and perhaps just try to keep it as much of the same as possible or do we put the new baby in the new room and let G stay where he is? In a perfect world we would move G, and
he would do great! just hope for the best, but again, I’m worried that all this change will throw him for a loop, and that’s not fair to him. I just want to do what’s best for my sweet boy.
So we’ve got some decisions to make but we’re very excited to be making them, and to add a new chapter to our life story! I go back to the Dr’s in a week and a half for my 20 week check-up, so I’ll post a baby and a bump update then! I can’t believe I’m almost half way through my pregnancy! That means that fall is just around the corner and I am definitely looking forward to cooler weather for our morning walks!
Any advice on the second bedroom dilemma??
