If One is Good...

...than two is better. Right?

It looks like Anna is going to be a big sister much sooner than we thought! We found out in January that we'll be welcoming number 2 this September. I'm 13 weeks tomorrow and so far everything looks great! We're pretty nervous about wrangling two little ones so close in age, but we're pretty excited, too! We definitely did not expect, after all we went through to have Anna, to get pregnant again so quickly. We are so blessed!

I'm totally, completely convinced it's a girl. Last weekend Jamie and I went to dinner and were talking about future plans. Without thinking I said something about "the girls". And a couple weeks ago when Becca and I went shopping I bought a new outfit for Anna. I couldn't choose between two sizes but decided to go with the smaller one rationalizing that "It'll fit Anna now and then next winter it'll be the right size for the new baby." I also already have her named. Of course, this means that it is without a doubt going to be a boy. Which might be a good thing since Jamie also already has her named and his name is different from mine. A boy's name we agree on. (If it's a girl, I will win.)

As crazy as it is, we're so excited to be taking this journey again! We can't wait to welcome this new little one next fall!

Sixth Months Old!

I'm sixth months old today! See how big I'm getting?

I'm doing all kinds of new things this month:
- I'm almost sitting up on my own. I can stay up for a few seconds, but Mommy has to stay close by, because I topple over.
- I have two teeth! They both came in this month within two weeks of each other. I was pretty unhappy about it!
- My love affair with squealing has tapered off a bit. My new love is blowing raspberries!
- I'm a total Mommy's girl. I don't mind if someone else holds me or plays with me as long as Mommy is out of sight. But if I can see her, I have to have her! Especially if I'm cranky.
- I'm big enough now to rough house with Daddy and I love it! I like to be tossed into the air and swung around. I have no fear!
- I had my first cold AND my first diaper rash this month. I didn't like that at all.
- I have a new roomie! My Aunt Becca moved in this month, and I think she's pretty great! She plays with me when Mommy's cooking dinner and sometimes she and I get to hang out together while Mommy and Daddy go out.
- I had my first bowl of rice cereal today! Most of it wound up ON me instead of IN me, but Mommy says I'll get it if we keep trying!

Can you believe how fast I'm growing up? I'm a whole half a year!
