And Baby Makes Four...

Thank you all for your warm congratulations, we are so excited about this new baby! I'm feeling pretty good. I didn't have any morning sickness or other issues with Michaela and it looks like I won't with this one either *keeping fingers crossed*. The only thing is that I feel a little more tired than usual, but that is to be expected in the first trimester with a little toddler running around. Philip has been fantastic. This weekend when our schedule was a little off and I felt really really exhausted, he had me lay down for a nap in the other room while he entertained Michaela.

This week I have really started thinking about the logistics of having another baby in our home. What room will we put it* in, do we need to buy any more baby things or do we still have all of Michaela's, how in the world am I going to find time to clean with a baby and a toddler! I'm super excited, and now I know from experience that the more I get organized before this baby comes, the easier the transition will be. I'll be heading to Walmart at some point today to figure out a better organizing system for all of Michaela's toys and other misc. junk that resides all over the floor of the front room! Anyone have any good toy organizing tips?

*We don't plan on finding out the sex of the baby until it is born, but Philip is really hoping for a little boy. I don't mind either way, but I have much more experience with little girls!

Wow, it will be so exciting to have another little one added to the family. We're hoping to have one more too. In God's timing, of course. Congrats again!

Congratulations! Don't worry, you'll find there is never enough time to clean. Just don't let it stress you. They are only young once, you can clean start cleaning again when Micheala starts kindergarten.
