Baby Becker Girl - FAQ

Here are some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about our Baby Girl.

1. Are you ready for her?
NO! {Blank stare} Okay, well, we pulled the carseat out of storage. It's in the basement {and we know how to install it in the car this time}. We have a pack of newborn size diapers. And today I washed some newborn and 0-3 month girl clothes...  So, yes, I think we're ready.

2. Does she have a name?
Depends who you ask.  If you ask me, YES. I named her in July when we found out she was a girl. Actually, I named her when I was looking for names for Jack.  I proposed my name idea to Tyson immediately and was given a very firm NO. I have worked some voodoo magic on him since then and, as of this moment, my name is "under serious consideration."  Tyson says we will name her at the hospital.  But I will be taking a pre-made onesie with MY name choice on it...just in case...

3. What will Jack think?
He will think his little world is being turned upside down.  We have been working on pointing out babies (when we see them in public), but I know he has no clue what is about to happen. For SURE, his sister will be poked, tugged on, and her personal space will be invaded (often). I hear it builds character, so I'm not stressing about it.

4. Does she have a room?
No. Poor Baby Girl Becker will be sharing a room with her parents for the first few months.  We have a bassinet that attaches to the side of our bed - and it was AMAZING when Jack was born.  Since I will be breastfeeding - this will allow me to feed her without getting out of my bed. Sound lazy? It is. But I love it. Plus, the crib she will someday occupy is currently being occupied by her big brother. Lord knows he's not ready for a toddler bed right now.  But then again Jack may be in a cage crib until he's four...

5. So you'll have a boy & a girl...are you done?
Here is a piece of advice...don't ask a woman who is 8 months pregnant if she's finished having kids. The answer will be YES. I'm tired, sore, and uncomfortable. In my head, I think "I'd be a fool to go through this again."

But in my heart, I know that Tyson and I have always wanted a big family. We are thankful that God has blessed us with Jack and our daughter. Yes - there may be more Becker babies...in the future. But we will not discuss this again until Jack is potty trained, Baby is sleeping through the night, and I forget (again) the entire process of having a child. It does happen. You really do forget everything what comes with being pregnant & giving birth... and the next thing you know, you're gagging and hanging your head over the kitchen sink.

Officially 6 weeks left...wish us luck.
