Banks & Baby

 time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin' into the future (cue fly like an eagle by the steve miller band)
i think it's finally starting to sink in that banks is no longer the 'baby' of the family. i can remember  when we first told banks he was going to be a big brother and asking him if he thought it was a boy or a girl... he would repeat "boy or girl", but did not choose one or the other.
yesterday, he was pointing to his aunt kelsey and saying 'girl' then to daddy and saying 'boy' and when i asked him if mommy was a boy or a girl, he replied 'girl'. 
he gets it. in just 2 months, he has learned something new and it amazes me what his little mind can retain. so, of course, we have asked banks what the baby will be. time after time we get 'girl'. not a surprise since no one has thought we were going to have another boy. 
boy or girl, we are so excited, and we plan to wait until sometime in july (when the baby is born) to find out the sex of baby K #2. in all honesty, it is the best surprise ever. i highly recommend waiting... although i highly recommend a lot of things, as my opinions on the subject of birth are almost all strong-willed. i think banks gets this stubbornness trait from his mama. i'm okay with that though, at least we know what we like, right?
we've had two baby dr. appts since we found out we were expecting the first week in November. at what we thought was a 9 week appt, we were told the baby was reading an 8 week status, nothing like moving that due date back from the VERY beginning. the baby's heartbeat was 178 bpm and we were given the approximate due date of july 17, 2014. baby looked healthy and we couldn't complain. dr. K said 'it's a girl, just joking, but that's what everyone will tell you since the baby has a high heartbeat'.
lots of 'baby kisses' from banks.
two weeks ago, we had our 12 week appt. the baby's heartbeat was 162 bpm and dr. K said the exact same thing 'it's a girl'.
I know that Dr. K has NO IDEA what the sex of the baby is, but it's fun to hear the guessing games begin already.
headaches and tiredness are subsiding (a bit) and what they say about showing sooner with your second child is a FACT if i've ever heard one.
i'm getting antsy to start working on the baby's room and trying to narrow my list of 53 names down to 5 or less. i'm name obsessed. 

we cannot get enough of woody.

  1. Love it! Very excited for you guys. I showed earlier, but so far I've gained less weight than with Wes...but I still have 3 weeks. :) If, and that's a big if, we have another child, we won't find out the sex. I can't wait to see if yours is a boy or girl!
