A little secret!

Ok, so I hate keeping secrets! REALLY. I can't stand it any longer, and I feel like it's a safe time that I can now tell the bloggy world that I'm expecting baby number two. I'm about 11 weeks along. Several of you already know-and I even hinted here on number 5 and my friend Jen was the only one who noticed.

It was really fun telling our families-we told my parents over the web cam. I got Landree this cute little shirt. I had her wearing it and waited until both of my parents were in the room and then I let them see her whole body. My mom played into it so well. She immediately asked what shirt Landree was wearing and I asked if they could see it-it was new. I held Landree up to the screen and Daddy read it, "I'm going to be the big sister." They were really excited!

We sent Jeff's parents an email of her new outfit ;) Angie and Maggie were home together and we got to talk to them when they opened it. We forwarded it on to Aunt Krissy and Uncle B and Aunt J too. I wish we could have told them in person {I actually found out the day we came home from Texas.}

I am feeling great as long as I eat {all the time}. I am afraid that might mean I gain a few more pounds than the 25 I gained last time, but whatever works right? It's the only time you can gain weight and it be alright.

Thanks for all your concerns for where I've been. The word around here has been busy! We've been trying to get our house in tip top shape because there is no way we will be able to stay in this house when baby #2 arrives-we hope to get it on the market in the next few weeks.

Congratulations! I am soooo very excited for you! We announced our second pregnancy the same way. Carson had a similar t-shirt. I can also relate to the whole eating thing. As long as I was eating during both pregnancies, I felt fine! Don't ask me how much weight I gained because I stopped counting at the end!

Enjoy every second! It will go soooo fast!

Catherine said...

Yay!! Congrats!! I actually wondered that when I read #5, but thought you'd have said something...and I always assume people are pregnant! :)

Gail said...

Congrats Jennifer! You know I had a feeling you were pregnant or would be soon. I'm quite sure little Miss Landree will be a great big sister!

That's so awesome Jen! Congrats to you and hubby and Miss Landree, she does look totally adorable as usual and what an awesome way to tell people! I won't even tell you how much weight I gained! I'm STILL battling to lose the rest of it! Eating is definately a pregnancy bonus though!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am so so so excited....I ran in the other room to tell Greg before I could even finish typing my comment!

Who cares how much weight you gain! I gained 50 pounds with James and 60 pounds with Elisabeth and ummmm....no weight gain with Lottie and Emma Jane...LOL

Love you and I am so happy for you!

himee said...

Yay Jen! That's so exciting! I feel your pain about the whole moving thing! We are on the market right now and it's hard having to live in a house that has to be so perfect it looks like no one even lives there! I hope you are able to get it ready and sell it quickly! Landry is such a beautiful little girl, I'm sure the next one will be just as precious!

Eloise said...

Such happy news! Congratulations!

Jennifer said...

Yeah! I'm so excited for you all. Landree looks adorable in her big sister shirt. When are you due?

Thank you for posting about Carter. He is doing great and we're loving every minute of having him home. (Even at 2 am I try to be thankful that God took care of him and gave him back to us.)

Take care and I can't wait to hear more about how your pregnancy is going.
