This Thing Called Motherhood

It’s been several months since we’ve chatted and if you haven’t heard yet, We are growing again! I am 37 weeks pregnant with baby number two and this pregnancy has been quite a doozy! But first, a funny story. When I announced my pregnancy several months ago at our monthly staff meeting at work, instead of saying my husband and I will be busy with two babies, I said my husband and I were busy, and now I’m pregnant….not in those exact words, but that’s how it came across lol. So needless to say, I was embarrassed that my baby brain had kicked in so sooner than before. Baby #2 doesn’t have a name quite yet, but we are working on it. His ETA is May 10th and this weekend we thought he was going to make an early arrival, but he changed his mind:). I had contractions all weekend and then all of a sudden they stopped!

I am super ecstatic about baby #2 but nervous as well. I have questions, lots of questions. How will I balance it all? Will Shiloh be jealous? What’s it like having all boys? How will I love them the same but different? OMG, how am I going to get 2 kids out of the house? Will Kenny and I have any alone time? Will I lose the pregnancy weight? And the list goes on and on and on! I’m pretty sure I’m not the first mom to have all of these questions, and surely won’t be the last, but a couple of things I do know that’s comforted me. They are: always pray, necessity is the best teacher, and we will find our new normal just like we did with Shiloh. It may take a while, but I know that we will get there. Are there any mommas out there who’ve experienced this and have advice??

Here are a few of our maternity pics that capture the way we feel about our new baby!
