Change It Up, Baby!

Okay. I'm sick to death of Hurricane news. So, how about if we change it up!

About a month ago I was taking a nap on the couch while Aaron was taking his nap and Whitney was playing games on the computer. I woke up with the strongest feeling that one of the kids was standing next to me watching me like they needed to tell me something. So, I opened my eyes to see what they needed and nobody was there. But that feeling was still there and I knew that it was one of my children. Then, I realized that it is one that is still waiting for their turn on Earth. It was a really neat experience and I missed that presence after it left. Like when you hold your newborn baby for the first time and then they take it away to clean it up and weigh it and you get that twinge of "hey, give that back!". I wasn't planning on having any more until Aaron was potty trained...but apparently this little spirit was sick of waiting! So, ONE month later........



Yes, it only took one try...guess they were really in a hurry!

When I told Whitney that we were going to have another baby and that I had the baby growing in my tummy, she gave me this distraught look and said, "Mom, that's DISGUSTING!!! We're not supposed to eat babies!". That girl cracks me up! She's going to be such a great big sister! I can just imagine her telling the baby, "I remember when mommy ate you!". As for Aaron, of course he has noooo clue what's going on, but that's okay. I don't think he'll mind until he doesn't fit on my lap anymore!

I'm feeling good so far, just your typical tired, hungry, moody, sore bigger-boobed woman who gets those waves of "blah" throughout the day and who has to use the ladies room every half an hour. I'm happy to be pregnant, though, and can't wait to meet this little spirit who came to tell me that they wanted to be with us and to hurry it up already.

That is hilarious what Whitney said. She's so funny. "Please bless that Aaron will stop whining like a baby...".... "oops, sorry. I ruined your couch." :) Love her! (And you). I can't believe my big sister is pregnant! jk.

What a cool experience! Thanks for sharing that. I saw on Facebook that you were pregnant, but kept forgetting to say congrats. I guess I'll just say it now instead... CONGRATS! :)

Whitney's so awesome. Hopefully, you'll get another just like her! I can't wait to see what good-looking child you guys produce next!
