Baby Number Two, Take Two!

Today is my lost due date with Wren. I was supposed to be having my second child today.

But I'm making this a happy, celebratory day instead of feeling sad because...

I am 14 weeks pregnant!!!

(my copy cat, a little worried about that pee stick, but requesting to get his picture taken with the same pose as mommy. And ignore the random tag taped to his shirt--he demanded to wear the tag from my yoga pants this day)

Due Date: 5.29.12 --exactly 6 months {to the day} from my original due date with Wren. Freaky and amazing, huh?

Truman and his sibling will be 27 months apart and we are all ridiculously excited to be expecting again. It's been a long/eventful journey already but oh, so worth it. Details to follow.

  4. Yay!!! I'm so excited for you and your family!!

    Confession: I've known for 6 weeks. I've been on the bump lately and came across a post of yours and saw your ticker. I've been DYING for you to announce. I knew you'd wait awhile, but I've been anxiously waiting anyway. Also, I love that you already have a little bump! A few pics were posted of you on Facebook (from Thanksgiving) and I thought it looked like you had a bump (but I was seeing them from the perspective of knowing you were pregnant so I thought maybe I was crazy).

    YAY!!!

    I feel like an injustice has been righted, which I know isn't even Christianlike, but still.

    ps:: So didn't stalk you on TB, but now wishing I had.

  71. Awww! What thrilling news Julia! So happy for you guys. You are certainly 'popping' so much sooner this time around - how exciting. I am currently 29 weeks with our first and I am always referring to your weekly blogs from when you were pregnant with Truman, they've been great. I enjoyed them the first time around but they are even more fun now. And I also want to thank you - you were one of the first blogs I followed that had such a comprehensive view of modern CD-ing. I ordered my bum genius 4.0's this last weekend! So very excited for them to arrive. Can't wait to follow along with this little one!
