16 Weeks and 16 Months

I must admit, it's a little daunting and occasionally gives me a panic
attack to think about having a newborn and a toddler under the age of 2.
But mostly, it's really exciting.
I hope that they'll be good friends growing up.
I can't believe we're 16 weeks along already!
Scarlett's pregnancy went by soooo slowly because it was basically the only thing
we could think about.
But having an energetic toddler to chase around usually takes my mind off of everything
and sometimes I forget that I even am pregnant.
Plus, I know things are going to be soooo busy once this little guy
comes, that I'm trying to enjoy every moment that I can spoil
my little girl with my undivided attention.
Everything continues to go really well.
It was so exciting to find out the gender a couple weeks ago.
I can't wait to have a mini Christopher, but I also don't have a clue
what to do with little boys, so that'll be an adventure :)
I'm getting my appetite back, thank goodness.
Chris was getting pretty tired of having to cook his own separate meals
while I ate my Easy Mac or ramen.
I'm also starting to get some energy back and not be so tired all the time.
(Though I continue to take advantage of any nap time I can get)
And I'm starting to notice a little bump!
And starting to get really achey already, what the heck!
Anyways, I thought that I was also due for a Scarlett update.
It's fun that she's 16 months when I'm 16 weeks along.
She is as sweet and sassy as ever!
Her main accomplishment in the last couple of months is her speech.
Every day it seems she's learning exponentially more.
She's starting to figure out that she can say words and express what she wants.
She loves to say "peez" all the time asking for bites of food.
That girl is seriously never full.
But I can't resist when she's being so cute and polite.
She's also starting to be more gentle and cuddly and gives lots of hugs
and kisses, which completely melts my heart.
Her new favorite thing is all of the Christmas lights outside and begs
all night long to go "side" to stare and point at them.
We're trying to get her used to the idea of a baby in mommy's tummy,
but she has no clue what's going on :)
It's going to be so fun to see these two together!

The Reveal!!

We found out the gender today!!
I took a new blood test that can tell earlier than an ultrasound and they call with the results.
 Chris took the phone call and told me himself for the reveal.
(It just about killed me those two hours knowing he knew)
Sorry for picture overload!
Look at my cute cotton candy-makin' hubby!
What do you think, blue or pink??

Scarlett guesses pink :)

Black and white of course, you can't know before I do!!

Soooooo anxious!



We couldn't be more thrilled!
I've always wanted one of each to start with.

Blue tongue family :)

We already love this little boy so much!!
I just want him to be a little mini Christopher, cause that would just be the cutest thing ever :)
Aaaaand now we can start thinking about names, hooray!
Can't wait to meet you, little one!!
