Last weekend Corey and I announced that we’re bringing another tiny person into the world. This time the male type of tiny person.
We found out that I was pregnant in November and ever since we have been so excited to start the next leg of our parenting journey together. I won’t lie, I’m pretty nervous to have a boy. My 2 year old nephew was on rung away from climbing onto the roof this fall…boys freak me out. But I also can’t wait to snuggle the little guy and have my very own little mamma’s boy.
There he is in the ultrasound looking like a cute little teddy bear or something. This was at 10 weeks (I’m due August 6th!)
When we got pregnant with Clara, I wouldn’t say it was under the most ideal of circumstances. To say she was unplanned would be an understatement. Corey and I were still in the dating phase of our relationship and were both quite unsure of what the future held for us. If we’d been Facebook official it probably would have said “It’s Complicated”.
It didn’t mean that we’d love Clara any less, but it took awhile for me to be excited about motherhood. Of course after a few months I found that excitement and really connected with Clara. Before she was born I felt quite ready to be a mom, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t still a lingering cloud of uncertainty.
This time around, things are different. Corey and I are married. We planned to have this baby. I bought a pregnancy test before my missed period because I couldn’t wait to find out, not because I was anxious or scared. I told Corey with a smile on my face I couldn’t contain instead of nervously taking a second test at his house so he knew I wasn’t a nut job who bought a positive pregnancy test on the internet (My idea not his 😅) With Clara I was terrified to tell my parents. I put it off for quiet some time. This time I took a test and told my mom the next day because I couldn’t NOT tell her.
I’m excited to experience a pregnancy that I planned for. And I’m excited to see Clara grow into the best big sister. I’m excited to watch Corey hold his little boy just like he did Clara and try to hide the fact that he’s crying. I can’t wait to watch my little family of three grow into a bigger family of four.
