Someone's Ready to be a Big Brother!



I'm super thankful to finally be sharing the news that we're expecting baby #2!  It explains the lack of cooking around here and overall lack of blogging. 

This pregnancy has been much different than my first with Anderson. I've been way more nausea this time around and had more interesting food cravings and aversions. 

The nausea hit right around the time I was sick so I ate chicken noodle soup straight for a week. Now that sounds disgusting. With Anderson I wanted burgers and Mexican all the time. With this babe I've been ordering lots of salads and one day almost ate a whole tub of trader joe's tatziki. Now that too doesn't sound too great either. 

Into the second trimester now I'm starting to gain some energy back though still take the occasional nap web Anderson does and find myself needing to put on sea bands to curve the nausea as well. 

Anderson has been the sweetest about becoming a big brother. Last week he got to hear the baby's heartbeat and likes kissing my tummy and saying "baby! Heartbeat!"  I about cried right there in the OB office when I saw his reaction to hearing the baby. He's into all books big brother and about new baby's. I keep telling him he'll be mommy's big helper. 


Good thing the kid looks ready to take on the role, right? Helmet and all. He's ready and so are we!
