Since we had an FHE tonight on babies, and Emma now is officially in the loop, I think it's safe to announce it to the world, since I know she will be. (Like you all care, but it is exciting for us!)
After 2 years of trying, we are expecting baby # 2 in March. We've already had 3 ultrasounds, and everything is looking great. We are so excited, and even more excited now that Emma knows. We were talking today, and I asked her what she thought about a baby coming to live with us. She told me that "babies only grow in tummies, Mommy". I told her I had a baby in mine, and her little eyes lit up, and she said, "you do?" with a huge grin. It was so fun. We then had about an hour talk about babies, how they get there (we kept it simple with "Heavenly Father sent it to us") , what they eat, how fast they grow, etc. She looked at my baby book, and saw how little the baby is right now, and how big it will be. I'm so happy that she is excited. After we told her, she asked me if we had thanked Heavenly Father for the baby yet, which I thought was cute. I told her yes, and she said, "we need to thank him now...not in a prayer, just tell him". Funny. Tonight we talked about babies for FHE, and families being forever, and then we watched a video of a bunch of Emma's baby pictures and videos. We wanted to make sure she understood how happy we were to have a baby, and how exciting it will be to have another one in our family.
If you ask her, she'll tell you all about how big it is, how it eats, if it kicks/sleeps, and where it came from. I'm glad she's excited. I want to make it fun for her, and not too hard. Anyway, we couldn't be happier, and have thanked Heavenly Father in many prayers for blessing us with another baby. Can't wait. I've been more sick with this one, and I feel like it is finally tapering off, thank goodness. I now have a list of to do's to get done before March. Let's see if I can finish it.
