We have not stopped smiling since finding out the news. Ever since we were pregnant with Camden, we talked about wanting kids close in age and since we will probably try for a third down the road, we knew that we aren't getting any younger! We are so super excited to have another baby to love on and thankful to be able to give Camden a sibling and watch them grow up together! We think he will be such a great big brother! We already have a date set to find out the gender, which will be the first week of February! Camden and the new baby will be almost 18 months apart and my due date is July 26th.
We found out we were expecting on November 19th, right before Thanksgiving! Billy wanted to take the test with me this time (I made him wait a little last time so I could get a cute gift and such) so it was really sweet finding out together, and telling Cam he was going to be a big brother! The fact that we found out on the 19th is crazy in itself because my water broke with Cam on 1-9 and the room I gave birth to him in ended in 19. It's also my husbands hockey number. Feels like it's meant to be!
My very first symptoms were craving chocolate like crazy (that I assumed was my period coming), exhaustion, sore boobs, and the craziest vivid dreams! If you've been pregnant before, you know what I mean about pregnancy dreams...they are so wild and that first week I had so many that I just knew that I was pregnant. Rocky also followed me around like crazy and always wanted to be in my lap!
I think the biggest difference I'm feeling this time around (so far) is just having more confidence in my parenting. Going from 0-1 totally rocked our world and in the beginning when Cam was a newborn, I stressed about so many little things and questioned myself all the time. This time both of us feel much more relaxed, confident, and comforted in the fact that we know what to expect! That's not to say we think going from 1-2 will be a breeze (hello-two under two!), but we do think the transition will be easier than 0-1 (for us, anyway.)
Thank you so, so much for all of your congratulations! I really appreciate all the support and thoughtful comments from you guys.
And what would a photoshoot be without a few funny outtakes? I think he's pretty excited for his new role!
