We Have NEWS

Tyson and I are excited to announce that Jack & Josie are expecting a sibling in August! I'm 14 weeks along and starting to feel like a normal person again. We heard a heartbeat at 9 weeks and saw the baby at 12 weeks. No decision yet on whether we will be finding out the gender...but lets be honest - we're 2-2 finding out.

Here is what I can tell you:
- Josie wants NOTHING to do with the baby. If I'm holding a baby, she gets upset. We have some work to do. She's a mama's girl.

- Jack has been asking some VERY interesting questions. First he thought the baby would come out my feet. No. Then he thought maybe my mouth. No. He thought aloud the belly button might be an option...but has since settled on "a red door." I'm currently pleading the 5th.

- I haven't had any cravings or aversions (except whatever I am cooking for dinner). I ate a lot of oranges at first. Oh - actually Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans have been a permanent fixture in my diet. Not a lot, just a few a day. I liken them to my daily prenatal vitamin, except they don't make me gag and they're delicious.

- This baby will be born at the University of Michigan Women's Hospital. I am using a midwife and will deliver at the birthing center. I'm pretty excited about it...well, as excited as one can be when delivering a baby. I think it's a great fit for my ideal birth plan...let's just hope the baby cooperates.

- This baby will most likely NOT have a "J" name. We do have a few "J" names we both like, but I'm doubting we end up choosing one. We are not the Duggar family.

More info to come. With the winter we've had so far - August seems REALLY far away, but I know it will be here SO fast. We are excited (and a little scared) about this new journey. As we all know, Zone Defense is HARD for Hoosiers.


  1. Yay! And you're only three weeks behind me :o) Seems like July can't get here fast enough but at the same time it's a bit terrifying.

  2. Woohoo!! Maybe Jack is thinking you will deliver at a spa -- Elizabeth Arden Red Door spa?? That comment cracked me up!


Leave some LOVE!
