Becoming Four

We have some exciting news! I have mentioned this news already in a couple of places on the internet, however, I would like to think of this post as our official announcement. We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of baby number 2 in September! Yay! Oh man, our little family is growing and we could not be more happy and more excited by it. Bug wants to meet her baby sister or brother so badly. 

We have found out the baby gender, but since we couldn't see things 100% clearly, we are just telling friends & family the gender - just in case. Or maybe that would be funny to blog about - us expecting one gender, with the chance of getting another. haha. Not too sure. Maybe I will tell. I am sure you will all be able to figure it out by future posts and photographs that I will add on this blog. I really can't keep secrets for long periods of time. 

Bug has already been telling me how much she is going to help me. She wants to help with bum changes, bath time, reading stories, nap time, and eventually feeding the baby some food. She already sings and tells the baby stories by placing her head over my stomach, getting as close to baby as she possibly can. She has already picked out names for the baby: Turtle Pop if it is a girl and Froggy Hop if it's a boy. And she doesn't think the baby will cry at all. haha, think I need to prepare her more for that one. 

All in all, we are super excited about the changes that will happen in September. So many good things are coming, so many more adventures, so many more memories. We cannot wait to meet you, little one. 

Additional Facts: 
- We found out that we were pregnant before we traveled to Japan. Let's just say that I have to go back so that I can actually eat some sushi. 
- Early pregnancy exhaustion is part of the reason I stopped blogging for a while. 
- This pregnancy has been very similar to Bug's so far. I was a little more sick with this pregnancy than with hers, and I definitely got sore quicker (yay, hips!) - which apparently happens with pregnancy number 2! I am also still so exhausted, but that is probably the combination of being pregnant and watching Bug & Little. 
- Sadly, because our family is changing, we won't be having Little with us from Monday - Friday. It will be so sad losing her, but we hope to keep on seeing her through special dates, sleep overs, family activities, and more. Bug & Little have become amazing friends and I definitely do not want them to miss out on each other. With that being said, I really look forward to spending some mommy & Bug bonding time while we wait for baby to come. 
- I have already started waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom! Gah! This is going to make summer camping plans fun. haha. 
- I have been craving salty over sweet. Just cannot seem to have enough popcorn, chips, and pickles. 
- Weird to think that I was in Oman when I was this pregnant with Bug.
