So I guess I should let everyone know we’re having another baby. :) I want this post to be light and happy, and focused on the amazing news of our family still growing, but I do plan on sharing my thoughts on carrying a baby after loss at some point, because they are extremely important to me! So the baby is healthy and moves/kicks around like crazy, and I’m due in February.
We ALMOST found out what it was, but decided not to in the end. Our doctor has it in her file, and Derick is still lobbying to just find out this time. :) But let’s be serious, how on earth could it not be another boy? And honestly, anyone who knows me, knows I’d be ecstatic over another boy. If anything, I get offended at all the, “let’s hope it’s a girl!” comments. Lol. I feel like saying, “have you MET my little boys? Because if you had, why on earth would you think I’d care if I had another one of those little darlings???” I’m convinced I have MUCH nicer, sweeter boys than most everyone else in the world who have been parents to those crazy little boys who are giving little boys everywhere a bad reputation!! Ha ha ha. I’d be genuinely excited if it was a boy or a girl, but it does sort of feel like our family was destined to raise handsome young men. :)
It feels good to be able to make some serious plans for the boys’ rooms upstairs again too. They were all just sort of up there in limbo. I didn’t want to hang anything on the walls because I wasn’t sure if everyone was staying where they were. This December we plan to move some boys in together for the first time, should be fun. :)
