A baby is on it's way

We are excited to announce that we are having a baby, praise the Lord! If you read my previous post, then you already knew this important piece of information. If you didn't know, then SURPRISE! and if you knew already there is no harm in celebrating, once more. (Raise the roof!)



I suspected I was pregnant about 3 months ago.  When I finally got the nerve to take a test, my suspicions were confirmed. Although two positive pregnancy test most likely mean there is a little person growing inside of me, it wasn’t until we saw the ultrasound that it finally felt real.  Indeed it was in there, and moving around like it was having a grand fiesta. Our hearts melted as we saw those little tiny arms and legs just dancing away, and that is the moment we all fell in love with this baby. Now we just wait to finally hold that precious gift from God in our arms.  sigh. 

On another note, Benjamin has been unexpectedly supportive. We thought he might act jealous, but no. On the contrary, he is being quite the exemplary big brother. He likes to rub my belly when I say it hurts, randomly give my belly kisses, and always asks if I am okay. The most interesting thing by far though, is that apparently Benji and the new baby are telepathic. Yup. Mr. Benj often knows the baby's concerns and will express them by saying things like “Mama, baby says he’s hungry” or “Mama, baby says she wants to come out” and “Mama, baby says quiet, he’s sleeping.”  But even with their telepathic abilities, Benji does not yet know if it is a girl or boy. This is why he alternates between “He” and “she”.  I"m pretty sure this makes him the smartest little boy ever!

Although I am only 17 weeks, this pregnancy has been extremely different, and more difficult from the previous. Nonetheless, I am ready to endure what is to come…

Sort of...

Not really...

Awe! You look gorgeous in these pics and much bigger than in real life. You have done a great job covering the bump.

Also.. Benny is the greatest. He is also Rubens son .. And Ruben was super excited for me when I was in the belly .. It's been passed down.

Congrats! I love that your boy is not jealous. Mine never had those jealous feelings though many kept assuming they would. They were always so happy to have a baby join us! Hope the rest of your pregnancy is smooth sailing!
