Good News...

I'm pregnant again! We found out last week & got the bloood test to confirm it today! I think he or she will be due in the begining of February (so, 11 months younger than Wills).

We are very excited & feel blessed. We are also a little nervous, but "trust in the Lord your God with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways know him and he will make your path straight."

So, to explain a little more, we are mostly nervous about Corey's deployment. I hope he will be able to get out of it or at very least come back early, so he wont miss the birth. We have no idea if his work will let him do either. He is supposed to leave in September & be gone for 4 months. So it's cutting it close & with the military things tend to get delayed. Also, because these two are so close I have "to be aware that the chances of having a preterm delivery are increased".

So, besides that, I am a little nervous about how hard it's going to be, especially the first few months. You know newborn is hard and getting everything adjusted & into a routine. I feel confident that I will survive & even that I'll have a bit of fun in there. haha

Oh how great it will be though when they are a bit older! They can play together!
I also don't have to get rid of anything (like the major stuff) & buy it again (or have it sitting around collecting dust for years).
Even if this one is a girl, she can still wear some of Will's more neutral clothes.
I'm already in baby-mode.
We wanted them close together.
Will will most likely be too young to really show jealousy/rivalry when s/he arrives (from what I hear from other moms with 2 little ones).

Corey thinks it's a girl, I think it's a boy. We don't really care either way (honestly). I have a feeling this pregnancy is going to go by a LOT faster than the last one. haha.


  1. I'm so happy for you guys. I wish I had another one close to Sammy's age, but to be honest, I'm terrified of going through what I went through again. You're lucky you laughed through the delivery :) No doubt this next one will be just as smooth. I miss you guys :(

  2. Congrats!!!! That is very exciting news. I have some friends that had their kiddos close together and they say it is wonderful because they always have a playmate!
