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.
