It's Spring!

Raegan,

We have had quite the week.

Tuesday morning I fell while carrying you down the stairs in the garage on our way to school. I was able to brace myself with one hand and hold on to you with the other. We banged heads pretty hard and I have a nice bruise on my arm, but other than that it appears everything is okay.

We've done tons and tons of playing outside this week. It's been nice and you love it!

Silly Boy!

You are very brave. You like to climb up the slide all by yourself and then go down as fast as you can. We used to count to three first, but now you have no time for that silly business!

Friday I had to judge a contest in Stillwater. You stayed in Medford and went to Uncle Tanner's baseball game. It was storming really bad there, and there was even a tornado warning, but the sirens were broken and the TV was not working, so you, Tanner, and grandma never went to a shelter. Luckily nothing touched down, but your mama was scared in Stillwater knowing what was going on where you were!

Saturday we made a late trip to Cherokee. We went and ate with your grandpa, picked up our taxes, then came home. You like your baseball cap that grandma's friend Tammile got for you:

Today we have done absolutely nothing. We took a long nap earlier and when we woke up, your daddy had done the laundry and had cleaned the kitchen for me. We played inside, swung outside in our backyard, and you chased Bruiser and Daisy around in the backyard. After dinner, you played in the bathtub and brushed your teeth, and now you are out for the night (hopefully, probably for three or four hours ;)

Love, love, love you my sweet boy!

Gender: ?

Movement: No :)

Sleep: Besides getting up to use the restroom, pretty good.

What I miss: I want a sub sandwich like you would not believe.

Cravings: No cravings, really, but the thought of most foods just gross me out. There's not a lot that sounds appealing. I tried to eat a hamburger and spit it out and almost threw up.

Best Moment this week: Telling a few more people, counting down the days until our appointment with the doctor

Dear Raegan,

I can't get over how much your simple little life is about to change. I know you will love your baby, but it will be so different to not be the only one anymore. In the meantime, your daddy and I are trying to spend as much time doing the things you love with you before we add another sweet baby into our lives. You will forever and always be the one who made me a mama, and will forever be my baby... no matter how old you may be. :)

If Only I Were a Little Bit Older....

Daddy was mowing tonight and someone couldn't stop watching:

Right after he realized it may be a while, might as well take a seat:

Maybe it will be easier to do this in the yard now:

I'm certain before long you will be right next to your daddy, helping.... or trying, anyway.

Dear Baby G #2,

Wow! What a shocker!! I never imagined this day would come so soon or so quickly. I decided to take a test today but never thought it would be positive. I'm excited, nervous, happy, scared, shocked, and feeling every other emotion possible.

I can't wait to feel you, see you, hear your heartbeat, know if you're a boy or girl. I can't wait for you to eventually meet your big brother, Raegan. I love you already, even though you are the size of a poppy seed.

Your due date is December 4, 2011. But because I will have a c-section, you'll be here before then. Eight months is a LONG time to wait, but I'm ready for each week to change and for you to grow and develop.

Your daddy and I are excited and anxious about our growing family.

Love,
Mommy

Big Brother

Dear Raegan,

Photobucket

Tonight, you became my big boy. Finding out you're going to be a big brother makes you grow up fast. I know you have absolutely no idea what's going on, but then again, you stayed on my lap all day today, like maybe you did.

Your daddy and I are excited, but know that you will always be my baby. And you will always be the one who made me a mama. You were so loved before you arrived and that love has only multiplied since then.

As you lay sleeping next to me, I can't believe how blessed I am to have you. I know you will be a great big brother. You're such a sweet, caring little boy and I can't imagine life without you. I look forward to this new chapter in our lives. We have until December to soak up the novelty of just having you as an "only child" and I hope to share many, many experiences with you before that time.

Love,
Mama
