Huckleberry Life: And Baby Makes Five!

So, this title probably gives away the exciting news I'm about to reveal..... Yet, ANOTHER little Huckleberry is going to be added to our clan this Spring!

 How awesome is this shirt? I used it to reveal the pregnancy to our friends.

Yep, my little family is growing from four to five and we are brimming with joy! :)

Adding a third child to our brood was not a decision that Jason and I made immediately. After having our second child, we never really talked about having a third. I had always assumed we would, while Jason assumed that we were done with two.

My 22 week ultrasound- 10 fingers and 10 toes!

The last year was tough as we decided whether or not to expand our family. There are so many factors involved in having another child: college tuition, the bedroom situation, airline tickets, vacations, a bigger car, and simply being outnumbered with the addition of a third little one.

But, ultimately, we decided that adding one more cherubic face to our bunch was the right decision for us. The baby has all ready become apart of our family. It has its own stocking hanging on the mantel and my boys constantly talk about things they'll do with the baby once he or she has arrived. It warms my heart to hear their excited voices discussing their new sibling.

I'm due a mere three weeks after Jamie's little bundle is due, so there's going to be a lot of baby talk happening here on the blog, I'm sure. Currently I'm 25 weeks pregnant (the lucky number in my head, since this is the week that a baby would be able to survive outside of the womb if for whatever reason it happened to be an early bird) and feeling okay.

It's definitely harder this time around for me. Mainly because I'm chasing around these two little characters all day. They wear me out and by the time the sun is setting I'm ready for bed!

 We don't find out the sex of our babies, so we're in for another surprise come early April! I know that this drives most people nuts, but it's so exciting for us! Most people think/hope that we'll be having a girl, since we have two boys all ready. My older son is positive it's a boy, while my little guy and my husband are positive it's a girl. As for me? I have absolutely NO idea what sex this little one is. So, I will definitely be in for a surprise in the delivery room. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families tomorrow. Enjoy the day and be sure to relax and take in all of the little things. These precious days go by so fast, don't they?

Stay merry!

  3. Congratulations! I had my 3rd in August, and you're right- the 3rd time around is definitely more tiring. But I wouldn't change it for anything! So fun!
