Poor second babies. You know what I mean, don't you? I don't think I have to explain.
But, just so you know, I am definitely JUST as excited for baby # 2! I just haven't blogged about him or her yet. I would post the ultrasound picture of our little lemon (lemon being a good thing here, that's how big our baby is right now!), but I'm not at home at the moment and I don't have it with me.
Even though this baby will be just two years younger than Shirley, little lemon didn't come as early as we had hoped. But God's timing is perfect and even though it was a comparatively short wait to many, I still learned much from waiting. And now I am actually thrilled with the two year gap.
Little lemon is due February 4th and so I'm just into my second trimester. Definitely more morning (really afternoon) sickness this time, and I have Gestational Diabetes again, but everything is so worth it. I can't wait to see Shirley as a big sister!
There are some things I am nervous about; nursing again, trying to take care of a newborn with a rambunctious two year old running around, getting two little kids in and out of the car, flying to Malawi with TWO little ones. But, I am way more excited than nervous.
So, that's pretty much it for today. Just wanted to make sure that if my babies ever read this blog, they know they were all greatly anticipated. And some of you may not have noticed the little ticker thing up top. :)
