Tribe of FOUR!
Yes! You read that title right, we are expecting another baby and are thrilled! Our little bug #2 is due to arrive August 2017.
I am not going to lie, we are incredibly nervous. Our last pregnancy as you all know did not end well. We contemplated telling the world of our pregnancy or keeping it a secret until we were really far along because as you can imagine, we are scared. Scared to repeat what happened with our twins, scared that something bad could happen this time around. Should we wait until the "safe zone" of 12 weeks? maybe even wait until we are in our third trimester? No.. We decided that we can't live our whole lives terrified and that there is no "safe zone." If everything goes smoothly we want to be able to look back on our pregnancy as a happy time, not a stressful time where we hid from the world until we had our baby safe at home. The reality is, we are always going to be nervous. Something could happen to anyone at any time. Just because we have another baby doesn't mean that nothing bad will ever happen to this child. We are praying and praying that this is a normal & boring as heck pregnancy.
So here is to our first official post of our pregnancy and the countdown is on! We can’t wait to see Carter in his role as a big brother. We are excited and nervous about what our life will hold as a family of 4 (and 2 dogs). Especially with having two children under the age of one. We are going to be very tired, but seeing our children grow up so close in age will be worth all of the sleepless nights. 2017 is going to be a year full of expanding our house, our car, and our family and we can't wait!
