Announcing Baby Noel Number Three!

We’re officially in for a wild ride... Baby Noel number three is due July 2018!!!


Surprised?! We were too. I was so used to staying up a couple hours after the girls were in bed to relax or get stuff done, but after three days straight of feeling like I wasn’t sure I would make it until dinner time (very similar to how I felt when I was pregnant with both of the girls), I decided maybe I should take a test.  Sure enough, before I could even set the test down for the three minute wait, two unmistakable, pink lines showed up on the screen. When I handed the test to Tyler, you could for sure say he was surprised, especially considering he didn’t know I was even thinking of taking one.  We were both excited, but I’d say Tyler was more excited at first. I was still trying to get over the fact that I was just pregnant like yesterday practically.  Once the initial shock wore off, I was (am) super excited too!  We actually found out a few days before Tyler’s birthday - an extra special early birthday gift? :)

We had planned to try for a third baby at some point, and did hope that Lo and our third would be close together in age, but fourteen months or less was a tiny bit closer than we had anticipated. ;) Nevertheless, we feel so incredibly grateful to have this sweet baby on the way.

Willow obviously has no idea what’s going on, and probably won’t until her mama disappears for a few days and magically comes home with a new baby. Ellie on the other hand seems to get it a little bit more this time around which is super sweet to see! When we first told her, she lifted up my shirt and said “oh no! Gone!” (since there wasn’t a whole lot to see, bless her little heart).  She’s since told me she wants to feel the baby kick and that she wants to come to the hospital when it’s time for the baby to be born after seeing this happen on one of her TV shows.  I’m excited to see what she thinks (and says) as my belly grows, and as she can do things like actually feel the baby kick! :) Ells has also been very consistent with her opinion that this baby is in fact a girl.  Luckily for us, I think she’s still too little to really have a strong opinion about whether she prefers a baby brother or sister and will be happy either way. ;)

That being said, Tyler and I have gotten a whole lot of questions about whether we would prefer a boy since we already have two girls.  Honestly, I would love to have either one.  I think it'd be so fun to have a little boy and mix things up a bit, but we also love having our girls already and totally wouldn't mind adding another one to our crew either.  Really, I am just so excited to hear what this one is!!  We do plan to find out the gender at my 20 week anatomy scan as we did the first two rounds.  The suspense has already been killing us!!

Things have been super quiet around here, I think you can tell why that might be now.  I’ve been lucky to not have morning sickness (just a tiny bit nausea off and on), but have been EXHAUSTED.  I do hope to post a little bit more frequently than I have been soon and can’t wait to share more as I grow this baby!! :)
