WE ARE EXPECTING!
That’s right, we’re due baby number two in August 2018! Meaning we’re growing from a family of three, to a family of four.. with two children under two!
What a whirlwind few weeks it has been. And a shock to the system too. Two babies close together in age is what I wanted, but due to certain circumstances we had decided to hold off for a year or so while we sort out some major changes.. little did we know this little baby had other ideas.
I had just come around to the fact we were going to have to wait for another child.. I had stopped crying over missing being pregnant, I had stopped getting upset over other peoples baby announcements and growing families. I had accepted that the wait would be for the best and worth it for us to be where we want to be.
But then.. two little pink lines appeared. And then a digital confirmation with 3+ weeks.. WHAT?!
Though terrified at the idea of having two young children we are absolutely overjoyed. I can’t wait to experience pregnancy again with this baby, and to see Zachary be a big brother. I just know he’s going to be wonderful.
Though there are lots of changes I am worried about.. Double buggies, trying to do things like food shopping with two little ones, will Zachary feel left out when I’m tethered to the sofa feeding the new baby and not on the floor playing, am I going to manage when Mats paternity leave finishes and I’m on my own with two?
BUT there’s so much I’m looking forward to that far outweighs the worries. Their first meeting, what Zachary will be like with his little brother/sister, what they’re going to look like, will we have a boy or a girl, keeping their gender a surprise for when they are born, having two beautiful babies, tandem breastfeeding them both and so much more.
We are so excited to share this journey with you! Thank you so much for the well wishes and congratulations. We are blessed.
