24 weeks to go.
This is not an old ultrasound picture of Capri.
Today I spilled the beans to my Big Picture “year to remember” class today! So the word is out! my mom was telling me how much she loves telling people the news cause she gets such great reactions! It is pretty fun… so far, everyone that I have told has totally freaked out. not more than my own level of freak out! We were fairly sure that we wanted to have one more child, so that Capri wouldn’t be all alone with the rest of the kids so much older… but not 11 months later. You would think that by the 5th go around, I’d know what causes this! (wink!)
We are thrilled and excited. Scared and nervous. And sure that if one infant threw off your schedule and makes it hard to run into the grocery store for that one forgotten ingredient, TWO infants… less than a year apart will REALLY present a challenge.
Capri and our new baby will be 11 months apart. My due date is July 15th. I figure I am a lot better off than I was last year with only a month before Creative Escape… this year I will have what, 7 weeks? much better!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT 2 YEARS IN A ROW I WILL HAVE A NEWBORN AT CREATIVE ESCAPE????? That is out of control!
I have truly been blessed this go around.
I haven’t been sick at all… I have been a little tired, and a little emotional! (that might be due to reality, and not necessarily hormones!) I feel great… I LOVE having baby Capri around. She is an absolute DELIGHT. Each day she gets funner and cuter and more alert. It’s amazing… and can you imagine, we will do it again!
I am very thankful to be a mother.
Blessed to have such bright and charming children who love their parents and one another. i marvel at how different I am as a woman, and mother than I was 9 years ago when I had my first… I am thankful for my personal growth and how that has allowed me to serve and teach my children.
I am humbled.
I believe that God has a plan. And I trust that He will bless me with the capacity I need.
Only 24 ½ weeks to go.
