Just had to share... I'm pregnant! Ava is going to have a little brother or sister sometime late April early May of next year. So crazy! Not only were we NOT trying whatsoever, I'm on birth control, etc etc but we just made a HUGE move and I started a new job and my husband is still looking for a new job, so of all times for this to happen, this definitely takes the cake! But we will manage and I am slowly getting over the shock and trying to get excited! I'm sure Ava will be once we tell her. We haven't really done that yet, I figured I would wait until after my first dr. appointment at the end of this month. Anyways, that's my big news, just had to share. Everyone have a great long weekend!
Congrats! Here's to a healthy 9 months a head of you!!! I'm due in 6 weeks and DD took to the news well. She just loves babies. I wanted to also recommend two books that we have for her about being a big sister and how babies are too little to do some stuff. We've also involved her in as much baby prep as we can and she's even enjoyed playing with some of the baby toys that we took out of storage. I'm sure Ava will love the idea of being a big sister!
1) I'm A Big Sister! by Ronne Randall - this is my favorite 2) I'm A Big Sister by Joanna Cole
He's excited, but still hesitant to share it with anyone until we go to the doctor at the end of this month, which is fine by me. I prefer not to tell anyone until we know that everything is going OK so far. It's just strange because if I remember right from when I got pregnant with Ava, he wanted to tell everyone right away and I was the one telling him to wait! LOL
Thanks for the book suggestions! I will definitely look into those after I go to my first dr. appt at the end of this month. As long as everything looks good, that's when we will share the news with Ava. Best of luck to you!!
