MERRY CHRISTMAS

I promised that I would share my Christmas card with all of you, but wanted to make sure everyone in the family got theirs first. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!!





That is right! We are pregnant! Even though it was pretty unexpected to have our first two so close together, we are VERY excited and can't wait for June. Here are the facts:

I am due June 11th, but if I have another C-section, then I will have it May 30th.
I am starting to show more by the day.
I find out what I am having on January 19th.
We are excited to have either a boy or a girl. If it is a girl then I will get my wish of having at least one girl, but if it is a boy, then Bryson will have a best buddy!
We don't know what names we like yet, I have my girl's name picked out, but Adam isn't sure he likes it. We are struggling with boy names. Our likes are ones that aren't trendy, but are different ... easy to pronounce and easy to spell. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any suggestions!

congrats on your pregnancy! I am pregnant with our second child as well and due the 5th of June. I was told I'd have to have another c-section but don't have a date for that yet. We find out on the 13th what we are having. Wish I could help you out on boy names but we are struggling on that ourselves. Again, congrats!!!

Yeah! Congratulations on your pregnancy! How very exciting! I have a little guy who's 3 months old, so pregnancy is still very much on my mind! LOL! I hope things go well with you and that you have a healthy & safe pregnancy!

Congrats!

We went through all the Top Baby Name lists, and then picked names that hadn't been in the top 10-20 for awhile. We ended up with Joseph William. Joey now, while he's a baby, then he can decide what he wants to be called when he's older. :)

Brock Family said...

Congratulations on baby #2! I have a 20 mo. old and a 5 mo. old..not even 15 months apart. Life is busy, but so fun! I think boys names are harder. We didn't decide of my son Jesse's name until we were pulling up to the hospital to have him! Good luck and have fun thinking of names! I could talk about baby names all day...I think my husband got sick of the conversation after 9 months of it though!!! Congrats again!

So excited for your whole family! I am having baby envy, so I will live vicariously through you. :)

Love your Christmas card.

I love the boy's name Marley. But now that there's a movie out with that name, it's not as cool anymore. Coco is a fun girl's name.

And Jayden. I love the name Jayden!

We have two sons, Parker and Holden and a daughter on the way in early March. Her name will be Lauren and her middle name is a toss up between Marie or Elise. Congrats and much luck!!

How exciting... another baby! My scrappin' sister in law is due June 15.

So... I guess I'll share my name since we don't live in the same town. :) I named my son Grant for the same reasons you mentioned... easy to spell, uncommon but not trendy... and it would go well with Bryson!

Congrats again.

Congrats on your pregnancy! We're having our second baby close to the first one too, it looks like we have a similar gap to you. Lara is 2 months older than your little one and the new one is due 2 months earlier than yours!

I really enjoyed your column in CK mag and am looking forward to seeing more, esp. since we're both in the same situation! :)

Congratulations on the new babe! Mine are 13 months apart! It's all sorts of challenging and wonderful! :) They're 5 & 6 now.

Your card is so darling and of course creative.I have a 3 year old son and want another baby. My son's name was not trendy but deffinately easy to spell and sentimental. We named him Carl Joey.Carl after my husband and Joey after my late brother.We call him CJ.Easy enough to spell,lol.
