I think it's funny that when I tell people about this pregnancy, they say one of two things:
1. Was it on purpose?? (yes)
2. How many kids do you guys WANT? (we say 3, but that's up to God!)
I find it amusing that after the first 2 kids, people's reactions are pretty normal. But you have the third fairly quickly, and they act like you're the Duggars and are on number 12. OH WOW! How many are you going to have?! I always laugh and say, "Um..three?" (It's one of those awkward pregnancy things that make me giggle, just like the first thing people ask as soon as you give birth and still have the newborn in your lap in the hospital bed, is when you are going to have another one. REALLY?!)
How big is the baby?
Is it a boy or a girl?
What will we name it?
Did you take your vitamins?
How does the baby get the vitamins?
Is the baby hungry mama?
Does the baby need food in it's umbilical cord?
How do you feel mama?
Does the baby want frozen yogurt?
Can I tickle the baby mama?
Mama...how does the baby come OUT of your belly?!
I love every single question, because I love how involved she is. (Okay, the last one threw me for a loop...) But I just love listening to her inquiries and how she is learning about this process. She is going to be a pro by the end! She just loved the ultrasound, stood with her jaw dropped as she listened to the heartbeat, and insisted that baby waved at her "because he loves me so much".
(Sidenote: We are not finding out the sex of the baby (why start now? ;)), but Reilly insists it is a girl. Everyone else on the universe thinks it's a boy. When asked why she thinks it's a girl, she says "Because I'm a big sister." Oh, of course.
There will be more belly pictures coming soon - Reilly is SO excited for my belly to get "really BIG"! I will keep updating when I am feeling good. :) We are so grateful for this little blessing! I am feeling very good lately, and soaking up every part of this pregnancy as much as possible.
