EDD July 22nd, 2012

Yep! Greyson is due to be a big brother next July! We're very excited, even though we know it'll be hard. It's amazing how something that can be the biggest complication in your world can also be the greatest thing to happen to you, all at the same time! Baby #2 is due July 22nd, 2012 and Greyson will have just turned 2 years old. 

The big question on everyone's mind: Boy or Girl? Well we won't know until February or March (yes, we plan on finding out), but according to symptoms and old wives tales they all say Girl. BUT I remember saying Greyson was going to be a girl, but honestly I don't think I ever REALLY thought he'd be a girl. Whenever I thought about my impending baby it was always in the masculine form. But this one I can't help but think of it in the feminine. So we'll see how right or wrong I am in a few months.

I'm only 5 weeks, so it's still too early for any possible morning sickness, though I never had a speck of it while pregnant with Greyson. I broke out a lot with him, but so far there's not a pimple to be seen which I'm incredibly thankful for. I already have to pee all the time, and I'm already hungry all the time. Only with this pregnancy all I seem to want is junk food, so I have to watch it.

I know it's early to go public with this, let alone "Internet public" but everyone already know anyway because Zack and I can't keep our mouths shut. Plus, I feel very calm  and patient with this one. With Greyson I couldn't wait for each doctor's appointment, each weekly milestone. And yes I'm excited for these things, but not nearly as anxious. I guess it's because I've been there and done that? 

Anyway, I hope to get back into blogging. I have a few more things to say, though these things need posts of their own. So all in good time.

So if I don't get to blog again before Thanksgiving, have a wonderfully good stuffing filled thankful time!


  1. SOOOOO excited for you, Christal! I cant wait to hear all about it (so you better be blogging!) as it is so fun to see other people's experiences with pregnancy and birth and all the joy that comes from it. That's so crazy that your babies will most likely have birthdays in the same month! That's going to be one special month! I think it would be precious if you had another boy but I have to admit I'm curious to see what your little girl would be like! I was SUPER sick with Anistynn (I'm sure you remember lol) and I got sick in my 6th week. I found out at 5 weeks (and it was only because I had missed my period - there were NO other symptoms; well except maybe a tender chest, but it wasnt horrible then - it got worse after I found out). So it's funny that right after I find out, I get a ton of symptoms haha. Anyway, cant wait to hear more and take care! :)

  2. I'm thrilled you're blogging again! Where ya been!? I love the picture wo stickin cute! And love the ruler in the back!! Now can you move here so we can have a childerns boutique filled with handmade awesome-ness (ya its a word)

  3. Morland, I've just been too busy and nothing interesting to say! But now I have monsters I can post about, a new baby to update everyone on, and all kinds of things I've done from pinterest! So hopefully I'm back!
