Bump NOT Plump!!

April 18, 2012

I guess it’s time to let the internet world know that, I am in fact, with child!! Michael and I couldn’t be more excited (or nervous) to expand our little family! I feel incredibly blessed to be able to bring another special little one to this world, and so grateful to be trusted with such a special gift. It is so weird to think that we will now be a family of four plus one crazy cat known as “Moose”! I absolutely LOVE being a mom, and I am so proud of the little boy that Brady is. I love his temper tantrums, his obsession with Buzz Lightyear, his love for food, his infectious laugh, his determination, the way his cheeks jiggle when he runs, and I can’t wait to see the personality this next one brings to our home. My only wish, besides a healthy baby, is that he or she is ready to play, and wrestle. B likes to go hard until the moment his little head hits the bed! He is 100 mph a minute, but that is what I love about him. There is never a dull moment, and I can’t wait to see him use that energy in sports.  I will wear my soccer, t-ball, or whatever other sport he plays “mom badge” proudly!

Ok back to the matter at hand….I am going to be a mom to two kiddos!! Wild! Brady is going to be a big brother, but I don’t think he has a clue yet. He will soon find out that there will be a new boss or sheriff in town. Luckily, I know he plays well with others and shares (for the most part) because of his wonderful sitter Lyn, and the time he spends at daycare. Hopefully that can translate over to mommy holding a new baby. I hope he will love to help and be a big boy, and show the new one the ropes as time goes by! Brady has honestly been such an amazing little boy to be around, and if this next one is half as cool, we will be the luckiest parents!

Cannot wait to meet our new addition September 23!!

I just want to thank my mom for helping me and capturing such a fun time right now. Brady was in a HORRID mood, but she braved it with me anyway, and kept snapping away even when the tears started to pour down, and no bribe in the world could make them stop! I love you mom!! You are the best! We loved having you here with us!
