Update on Calababy 2

Ohhh...Calababy... I was wrong...I am so nauseous and tired all the time...I am about 11 weeks now and I do hope that very soon things turn around. It's very hard to watch/potty train a 1 year old and be pregnant. I haven't seen a real doctor yet because the military is dragging their feet with appointments. When I mentioned it before, I only meant that I took the blood test. Daddy and I went to the little course they make you do where they assign you to a doctor, but next Monday will be our first real appointment. I really hope we can hear your heartbeat and maybe see your cutie face for the first time. I'll be honest, except for the constant nausea, you don't exactly feel real yet.

Often times, Daddy and I look at each other and say, "TWO kids?" We don't feel old enough for even one kid, most of the time! Needless to say, we are a bit scared.

Some funny things about you so far are:
       You love sweets. Licorice, chocolate, cookies, even sweet onions!
       Every. single. time I hear "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas..." I bawl. like a huge baby. Daddy just laughs. Sometimes I can't even talk about it without tearing up.
       You like warmth.
       You seem to calm when I snuggle Daddy or Deks.

We can't wait to get to know you more, sweetie-cheeks!

Hooray! Educated Mama!

Fingers for how many kids we had in grad school!

I already bought a cup like this for you, too!

Welcome Calababy2!


Dear Deklan and baby,

            Today we found out that we are expecting again!! I took 2 home pregnancy tests and finally went to the Dr. today. At first, they called and said the results were negative and I was so disappointed. Then the nurse called me later and said she read the wrong results- We ARE pregnant! We could not be more excited!! This time is already so different. With you, Deklan, I was crabby and wanted only BLTs all day long. I was nauseous from the start. I think I'm about 3 weeks now and I rarely feel nauseous. Mostly I'm just tired. I've been eating a lot of protein and sometimes I get a little cranky, but so far I think I've been able to keep it in check.
          Deklan, your daddy and I feel like we want you to have a sibling to support you, for you to support, and so that you can be a reflection of each other. This is important: Your sibling is someone to be cherished and when no one else understands you, when we are gone from this World, your sibling may be the only one who sees the World most similar to you. I know you'll fight, you'll test each other and push limits, but you must always be there for each other.

Congrats on becoming a BIG BROTHER!! I know you'll be awesome. and baby, we won't let you down. We love you already you sweet little sesame seed!

     Mom &Welcome Dad.
