Baby #4

super cool big bro

It’s official … Reid is no longer the baby of our family, he’s a “super cool big bro”! Come September we’ll have a new little one in our crew and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

I’m almost 8 weeks and oh so tired. And nauseous, especially in the evenings. Jemma and Max are so excited and all of a sudden my non-walking 1 year old seems like such a big boy. Last week we had a consult with a new midwife (up north since we’re moving and won’t get to have the same midwife as we did with Reid). I think we’re going to try a birth center birth instead of a home birth this go around.

I’m collapsing into bed soon, but wanted to quickly share and also document Jemma’s favorite name in the chance she is blessed with a sister — Jane Safari! She did confess that it was inspired by Tarzan, but despite that fact, she thinks it’s just fabulous and would love to share a “J” name with a sis. We shall see!

      Yay! How fun! I’m very much ready for the yuck stage to be over. You’ll be in my thoughts in the coming weeks!

    Love Jemma’s name pick! Safari could be trending in 9 months…who knows? :)
