Thankful for...


I hope everyone had a very blessed Thanksgiving. Our's was extra special this year because we found out that our little Sophia will be having a baby sister!!! So, surprise... i am expecting! I'm about 21 weeks now and thrilled to find out that we are having another girl!

These past few months have been quite a difficult one... we had a miscarriage over the summer and then a few short weeks later found out we conceived again! It was a total shocker and the back to back pregnancies have been very hard for me physically and emotionally. But, now that I'm half way done with this pregnancy... I am starting to feel the strength and excitement of sharing with you and the whole world of our new bundle of love that will be joining our family.

We actually never found out the gender when we were expecting Sophia and it was such a THRILL finding out after 2 hours of pushing and labor.. but with this baby I felt that I really needed to find out. Its been such a long journey getting here...and I just wanted to feel a bit more connected with this beloved unborn. I was nervous it would take away from the birthday, but it really hasn't. It fact, there's been a smile on my face from when the ultrasound technician told me 'its a girl' that hasn't left my face.

I secretly wanted another girl so badly. I reallllly wanted to give Sophia a sister more than anything. Since I don't have a sister and am totally envious whenever I see other girlfriends that have sisters... i really wanted this for Sophia... something i never had. So YES, I'm having ANOTHER GIRL and I CAN'T WAIT to see the love and hate relationship these girls will have together.
