A New Member of the Family Coming Soon


My family is expecting an arrival come this August... and a very special arrival at that. We are adding to our family by having another baby. My sibling is due August 27th (though the doctor says August 24th after doing an ultrasound - Of course, Mom is going with her own estimation) so Mom is just three months (or about 14 weeks) along now.

We are all pretty excited about the new baby and I am starting to understand more and more what this all means. I often ask Mom to show me her tummy and I point to where the baby is growing. I also tell people I have a baby growing in my tummy and say, "It's getting bigger and bigger!" As for Mom, she is doing great. Still a bit tired, but the nausea has pretty much all passed and she is looking forward to moving into the second trimester.

We'll keep you updated as exciting events come up throughout the next few months, such as finding out the gender. Mom is thinking we need another girl around here, mostly because she and Dad can't agree on a boy name (Mom likes Everett and Dad likes Atticus - probably neither will become a winner). We'll see what happens at our ultrasound in about a month. :)
