Surprise!

With great excitement as well as some trepidation, we announce that we are pregnant, due July 17th. We are very excited, but we are also a little nervous and praying that this baby does not have colic- that really was hard with Audra, and I don't know if I could handle another baby with colic as well as a toddler. But, we also know that any baby is a blessing from Heaven, and we are happy to be pregnant again. So far, pretty easy pregnancy- I am blessed with easy pregnancies, I only get sick if I am hungry so I keep crackers by my bedside at night. Audra doesn't quite understand the concept of pregnancy and enjoys jumping on my stomach. Good times.

  4. How do you not get sick? You must be the lucky one in our family because I know the rest of us aren't like that.

  5. Yay for You! I'm a July baby and I love having my bday in July. Your kid will too. Use Happiest Baby on the Block techniques with this one. That's what we did with Cache and plan on doing with the 2nd. We really stick to it and it totally works. I only think babies wouldn't take to it if they have like severe acid reflux or other medical discomforts. Look at Cache... he was PERFECT his first year of life!!!! HA ha! :)

  8. We used Happiest Baby and LOVED it- it came the closest to working and we highly recommend it as well. With this one we are going to do more attachment therapy and co-sleeping and hope that helps.
    And Steph, I do have easy pregnancies, but at least with Audra I made up for it with a horrible labor!
    Thank you for all of your love and support!
