big stuff...

21 weeks






We had an absolutly amazing time in Florida again this year! But, first things first... I have yet to blog about the fact that Bryan and I are finally expecting our second baby February 1st! We had our ultrasound the Monday we returned from our trip. We found out we are having another little boy! After his initial dissappointment that he was not, in fact, getting a sister, Gavin has become really excited to have a brother! He talks about all the things he's going to teach him, and what toys he will and will not share with him! He's going to be a great big brother, and above all else, that is what I am most excited about. I can't wait for him to have someone to share his life with. He has been blessed with some amazing cousins, but having someone here all the time is going to be such a treat for him. I don't know what I would do without my sisters, so to say I'm thrilled for Gavin to have a brother is something I can't really explain. I'm excited for us too, to get to experience having another baby, watching Bryan parent is so amazing to me and only makes me love him more. Everything looked perfect on the ultrasound, and after a very rough first trimester, I hope things keep going so well. I am getting progesterone shots every week to try and prevent the preterm labor that I experienced with Gavin. My bum is getting a little sore, but I'll gladly take the shots over magnesium, terbutaline and bedrest! Gavin thinks it's a hoot that I have to get a shot every Monday... at least someone is getting a chuckle out of it! So for now, I feel fantastic and I really hope it stays that way!
