Big brother tells all

I am so happy to tell you that mommy & daddy are finally getting around to the business of giving me a brother or sister. Yay!! Well, I'm kind of hoping for a brother, but I'll be sweet to a sister too. Mommy thinks I'm going to be a good helper and is starting to teach me many things that I'll need to know in order to be a big brother (it's a big responsibility, you know.) Mommy would really like me to potty-train, but I haven't made up my mind on that one yet.
We're excited to have another February birthday (I sense a pattern here!). We'll be 2 years and 2 weeks apart. The official date is Feb. 20. Mommy is 13 weeks already and excited to be finishing the 1st trimester. (She waited a little longer to tell everyone, because we got to tell her family in person last week!)
The best news is that she has not been very sick, but exhaustion has been a big battle. She said something about having a crazy man to run after all day.........she must be talking about my daddy. But she is already feeling less tired as she heads into tri 2.
So that's all the news for now, I am sure she will be sharing more later. We're all very excited!!!

Congrats!!! I was wondering if you guys might be getting around to #2 soon :) Yay for you. I'm hoping for a girl...just cause I know how much fun my sweetie is, and I think Graham would be a great older brother!

You are gonna laugh, but I thought you were announcing something on your previous post when you put "growing" in parentheses--but no one else said anything so I thought I was mistaken and I didn't dare say "Congrats" if you weren't really pregnant! So anyway, Congrats! :) So excited for you!

congrats. Life is such a blessing isn't it?
We will be praying for this sweet new life you are carrying! Graham will be the perfect age to be a HUGE help to you...and I should warn you that parenting multiple children with your best friend could cause you to experience more joy and love than you ever thought possible this side of heaven!
