[BREAKING NEWS: It’s going to be a boy!]
Well friends, I come to you today with some pretty exciting news! Mr. J. Money’s family will be expanding! WE’RE PREGNANT AGAIN!!! Woohoo!!! On the first try this time too, pretty crazy stuff :)
As many of you know it took us almost 2 years to conceive Baby Money #1 (Wow that’s weird to say…), so we thought we’d get on the ball right away this time in case it took another 2 years – if ever – to conceive again. And to our surprise it worked on the first go around!
You should have seen the look on my wife’s face, haha… it was priceless. I told her I wanted to check out those weird pregnancy sticks WITH HER this time every time she did it (‘cuz last time I was halfway across the country!), and of course she tries to brush me away and say there’s nothing to look at… Well, it’s a damn good thing I pushed or else I would have missed it all over again!
It went something like this:
ME: “Hurry up, let me see that thing! How long does it take?? A second? 10 seconds? An hour?”
MY WIFE: “Calm down over there, it takes a while. Just give it time and you’ll see a line show up soon…”
ME: “Okay, well what does 2 lines mean? Cuz there’s one coming in pretty boldly, but now there’s a slightly faded one too.”
MY WIFE: “Well that would mean we’re pregnant, but you won’t see two – just look for the 1 and calm your horses”
ME: “Ummm…. I think we’re pregnant?”
And then hysteria and happiness ensues ;) And literally the first thing that goes through my mind is, “I’m so happy for Baby Money!!! He’s going to have a friend to hang out with!” Followed by, “Well there’s NO way I’ll be able to track all these baby expenses now” Haha… I find it hilarious that my blog is always one of the first few things to pop up with this stuff, but not so much with the wife ;)
At any rate, we’re pregnant again! With a due date somewhere in the middle of May… It’s a bit too early in the process to tell if it’s a boy or girl and all that (we’re not even at 20 weeks yet but I couldn’t hold it in this time around!!), but hopefully all will be well and I’ll be reporting more happy news as time trickles on :)
And just like the last go around, I’m still just as giddy and nervous that our world’s about to turn upside down again. From what I hear going from one to two is *quite* the shock to the system… And money ain’t lookin’ as good as it once was either, unfortunately.
But such is life! Whatever it takes we’ll be providing a beautiful and loving home for our new special love muffin, and we’ll take things one step at a time as we did with Baby Money #1.
Pray everything goes smoothly, friends! I love y’all so much!
