I never thought I’d see the day where I’d be thinking about diapers and breastfeeding and baby names and pink or blue clothes again, but it’s official. Mr. Right and I are expecting a baby in early 2011.
My son has been asking for a baby brother for quite some time now. He was thrilled when I told him the news. He has talked of nothing else since then and was still excited, even after we told him that the baby could be a girl! The baby’s due date is just three days after his birthday so (for now) he wants just the baby brother or sister as his birthday present!
He’s already been such a great big brother, making sure I eat growing foods only (no junk food for this healthy mama), and letting me and the baby rest since he knows how important it is for us both. I couldn’t be more proud of him and only hope his helpfulness continues. He did mention that he won’t be doing poop patrol, though.
As for me, I feel like I’m starting from scratch when it comes to this whole pregnancy thing. I didn’t even see the signs when they first appeared.
I was exhausted last month, one of the reasons why I didn’t write very much, and was extremely emotional. I would burst into tears at the cheesiest commercials , but I didn’t put all the pieces together until I started noticing my round little belly that wasn’t going away after a month of boxing classes .
This will be Mr. Right’s first child and already I know he’s going to make an amazing father. He has created such a great bond with my son that he’s already a part of our family and once he finally moves out here to be with us, it’ll all be complete. I couldn’t have gotten more lucky.
Our families are excited too and were eager to see the first ultrasound photo that we were able to share with them last week.
Technology, and everything else baby-related has changed since I first became a mom nearly seven years ago, so I am studying up on new products, maternity brands and would love some suggestions along the way.
