A funny thing happens when you’re raising two kids under the age of 3.5…in the midst of major home renovations…while simultaneously running a photography business in the busy season…and managing a handful of other activities: you run out of time or energy to come up with a creative gender reveal for the new little one you just happen to be carrying at the same time!
I’ve put off doing this thinking that I needed to do a cute picture of the older siblings holding a sign or – something – anything, to make a fun little blog post like I did for the other kids. But you know what? This baby is going to be here before this blog post happens if I wait for the best possible gender reveal post to come together. There’s a whole lot of life going on over here people, so without further adieu, we’re having another GIRL!
We had asked Seven what he wanted and while most kids will say that they want a sibling that is the same as them, he actually said that he wanted another sister. We’ll be sure to remind him of this daily when they’re all in middle school. ;) For now though, he’s very excited to have gotten his wish and Sean and I are thrilled to have another little lady in the house. Serai Claire is just over 1 year right now herself, so quite frankly she is not going to know what hit her. She just lifts up my shirt every once in a while to see what I’m hiding under there and then walks away mystified.
So here we go! Sometime in August we will become the parents of a 3.5 year old, a 1.5 year old, and a newborn. To be honest, Mommy is a little terrified, but I’m sure it’s going to be great. ;)
Thank you to my dear friend, Mandy for taking these beautiful photographs of our kids last December. I love looking at them every day!
