OFFICIAL NEWS: It's a......

.....baby!
Yes, folks I'm pregnant with number 2 and we're officially announcing that it's a boy!
There seem to be a lot of girls going around in the family (on both sides) so it will be nice to get a male heir to carry on the Willard name. We're very excited for all that will be new and different, and for some of the same.
I'm 19 weeks along (4 months) and my official due date is December 28th. That wasn't the best planning on our part (poor little Christmas baby), but sometimes these things happen faster than we think they will. Lucy and the new baby will be almost 2 years apart (22 months). Everything has been fine and great so far. I've had some nausea here and there, but no throwing up and no complications. Honestly, if these last two pregnancies prophesy all my child-bearing, I'll be a happy camper.
One bummer about the due date is that we can't really go anywhere for Thanksgiving. I'll be 37 weeks at that point. So traveling to Arizona with my family is out...and St. George with Casey's family isn't an option either. But we'll have fun with our little three-some family at home. It's the perfect excuse to actually roast a turkey (since I've never done it, but own the roasting pan).

We're very excited for the little guy to come in December and feel very blessed to have a growing family. Since he still looks like an alien, we know you're all dying to see. So here he is. This is a straight-on/close-up shot of his face. The larger top cirle is his head, titlted to the left and those two dark spots are his eyes. His mouth is the horizontal dark slit/line. You can't see a nose (I sure hope he has one, Jacko). The bottom circle area is his body. The dark spots in that area are his heart/other organs. Real easy to make out, right?
I think he looks like a Homer Simpson/Sock Monkey mix. We'll see what comes out in December....

And here's a picture of me in the waiting room this morning.

This is Sara Paske (Jones) and I want to congratulate you guys!! Woohoo! I don't leave ever leave comments, but this obviously deserved one. Your daughter is 4 mo older than my Ava, and I am constantly getting great idea's from you guys. She loves her pedipeds for instance(I bought two pair), she bathes in a tote when we are at the cottage, and I added U-tube clips to my blog after I saw one on your blog. (I hope you don't find this creepy) I also love that your blog is not just about Lucy and that you post fun topics and your opinions. Anyway I could go on but this post is already very long. So just so you know, Dana, you are inspiring people all the world - well at least all the way to Wisconsin.

Garrett Family said...

Congratulations. You look so cute. I'm happy for you and your family. By the way quick question how do you add your own background to your blog? here's my email claudiagarrett@gmail.com thanks for the help.

Hooray! Actually, Nicole had told me you were pregnant a while back, but congrats on it being a BOY! And about those Christmas time babies - totally sucks. I have wanted to get Zeke big stuff all summer and know I shouldn't, but am making his birthday and Christmas lists already. That is very fun that you get to have one of each (although I'll bet you would have been fine with a girl too). Congratulations again and too bad we all can't be as tiny as you when we are pregnant !

Love the ultrasound pic and your non-existent prego belly. I'm excited to meet the little guy. Let's start throwing around names! And then when he arrives we can start throwing pillows.

dana said...

Seriously. He will never escape the pillow throwing now!

Brittany said...
