On Thanksgiving day this year I found out I was expecting our second baby. This is something we've been wishing and hoping for, so it was pretty much the best Thanksgiving moment of all time. I immediately texted a picture of the pregnancy test to my mom, and then we told Chad's entire family right before we dug into the most delectable feast imaginable. It truly gave us the most wonderful thing in the world to be thankful for on that special day.
Kaden is pretty clueless, although we talk a lot about how he is going to be a big brother and about how there is a baby inside my tummy. I know it will be an adjustment, but I honestly think he is going to make the sweetest, best big brother imaginable. I showed him pictures of me when I was nine months pregnant with him, and he laughed like crazy when I told him my tummy was going to get big like that again. We got a real science lesson when Kaden told us he has a baby in his tummy, too. According to him, it's a boy baby, and it's growing. A few days later, when I asked him if he still had a baby in his tummy, he told me, "No! Mommy took it. Now it's in her tummy." When we ask him if he wants a brother or a sister, he says he wants a sister. When we ask what he wants to name her, he says Liam. Not sure he really understands the difference between sister and brother, but we're working on it.
We are so excited about adding another little one to our family and are so thankful for this wonderful blessing. The gender ultrasound is scheduled for February 11th, so let the guessing begin!
