Baby Call #2 is on the way!!!

I decided to just make the big announcement  (a lot of people already know)!  We are expecting baby #2!  We are so excited and Kennedy is thrilled.  People will tell her that she is going to be a good big sister and she tells them, “I already am!”  When Daddy left to Alabama he told her to take care of Mommy and Baby.  She is taking this very seriously.  A few weeks back I wanted to eat a peanut butter cup (I like them best frozen).  I got one out of the freezer- it was just a mini one, and she told me, “Mommy that’s not good for you or the baby.”  I told her I knew that, but it just tasted so good.  She told me, “Okay, but just one!  You need to eat carrots. That’s what will make the baby big and strong.”  Sometimes she is too grown up!  Who’s the mother here???  October is a great month for us.  Kennedy, Me, and the baby will all have October birthdays.  I guess Daddy is the odd man out!  This was actually a huge shock.  Of course it was the month that I was SURE I wasn’t pregnant!  I have been so sick.  That is probably part why we have waited so long for #2. The Doctors are trying what they can, but I can’t take care of a 3 year old all by myself on Phenergan, Reglan, or Zofran.  Those medication put me in a sleeping like coma! I just can’t function.  All I want to do is sleep. Yes, I have tried them all.  Finally they told me just to take a B6 vitamin.  So far it’s not helping.  I just tell myself it’s worth it in the end!  Hopefully the next one is as perfect as Kennedy!  I can say that since I am her mom!  Anyway, enough babble… WE ARE EXCITED!!!!

    I love the peanut butter cup story. Next time the craving strikes, you tell Kennedy that Aunt Katie was grown in-utero on frozen peanut butter cups and seemed to work out okay! It did, didn’t it?! 🙂 I am the pb cup queen… I can magically make them, right Kennedy?!!! 🙂

    YEAH!!! Congratulations, Kennedy seems like she is going to be a lot of help!! The nice thing is that she is old enough to really be a help. Good luck with the morning sickness, I’m glad I don’t get that sick. Just tell yourself whenever you don’t feel good that you HAVE to eat something.

    hurray!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so excited for you!!! That is awesome!! Congrats! I am hoping for another girl so I can call dibs on her for Kayden; Keegan and Kennedy already have established their relationship 😉 I’m so sorry you are sick, I hope it gets better soon!!!! Eat whatever sounds good, I say, and don’t feel bad about letting Kennedy watch lots of TV so you can lay on the couch…or the floor in front of the bathroom, like I did!! Good luck!

    Kennedy thinks her aunt Katie makes peanut butter cups (even the wrappers). Yes, the kind you buy at the store. She is totally amazed by her. I don’t have the heart to tell her the truth!

    Congrats! That’s really exciting! Kennedy will be such a good little helper.

  • Jeff and Lea

    Wow, that is great news, congrats! So sorry you are sick! That really has to be the worst thing when you have a child to take care of! Hope it gets over soon for you. Now that I’m thinking about it, that is a lot of people from Moscow that are preggos! You, Kara, Wendy, and Beth.

    If you want a Math genius you’ve got to nourish them right – with frozen Reese’s peanut butter cups! That is seriously ALL I could eat with Katie. I think it worked well too, Kate!! Carrots!! Are you kidding me? They don’t go down very well and they are really harsh coming back up!! Sorry – too much info!!!

    Hurray! We are also expecting in October! And I thought I was sick… you poor thing. The worst is the feeling of guilt that the other kids are getting neglected, but everyone has to make sacrifices I guess!
