Haley's going to be a Big Sister!

So I think by this point everyone who reads my blog knows that I'm pregnant. But here is an official announcement.

The new baby is due around April 20th. We found out the day before Haley's first birthday. We told Haley that night. She didn't really understand but she did like playing with the pregnancy test we showed her.

Since we got to make the announcement last time we decided to let Haley tell most of the family the good news. Since she can't talk yet I made her a shirt announcing her status as a big sister in training. The 11 is for 2011 when the new baby will be born. It was nice that the focus could be on Haley with this announcement instead of on me.

I'm sure that with the new baby's arrival Haley will become a complete Daddy's girl. She is already well on her way thanks to the pregnancy hormones that knock me out and require me to take 2 naps a day. I am blessed to have such a wonderful, understanding, and patient husband who lets me get the rest I need. Who knew growing a pinto bean sized human could be such exhausting work.

Well - an "official" congrats is in order! Congrats! Hang in there - this too, shall pass...although it's so hard, isn't it?! I don't know what I'd do if Jeff couldn't come home for lunch/dinner and make food. The kids would starve....or eat graham crackers all day...
