After a little blogging hiatus this summer I came back a few weeks ago sharing this update on what was going and why I took I hiatus. Well just to add to the story a little more here is the THIRD reason I took a hiatus from blogging this summer….
Surprise!! We are officially expecting baby number three!!
We originally had said that two was the perfect number and we would stop there. Well as Everett approached his first birthday and slowly crept out of that baby stage I found myself feeling more and more like I wanted one more. So after lots of back and forth over the last year of whether or not we were going to have a third we finally decided that we would try for one more and see what happened. Much like the first two we blessed almost instantly with a pregnancy.
We kept the news from the kids for the first three months, as we weren’t quite ready to share the news and well Hazel isn’t very good at keeping secrets. The moment I did tell her she was over the moon excited about becoming a big sister again. She has her heart set on a little sister. We will be finding out the sex again, like we did with Everett. I am hoping this will help us ease any pain for Hazel should it be another boy. Everett on the other hand as been a bit indifferent towards the pregnancy so far. He is a huge mama’s boy and gets a bit jealous when Hazel is cuddling with me so this could be a bit of a challenge. I am hoping over the next few months he warms up to the idea.
The kids have been sharing a room for a few months now and are loving it. So we are very slowly turning what was their playroom into a nursery for the baby. We are also still trying to wrap our heads around the thought of being out numbered by the kids. What we thought was hectic now is only going to be half the fun come the Spring, so I am just going to embrace the little bit of chaos that we have now.
