well there went nearly a month with no posts! we have had our 20 week ultrasound and we stayed true to our plan and didn’t find out the sex. the ultrasound tech didn’t even write it down in our file because my fear is that my doctor would accidentally blurt it out haha. it’s actually pretty fun not knowing the sex; i feel like there is less pressure to have everything figured out… or maybe that is because it’s my third child and we have been down this road before.
i do get nervous though (despite it being my third go-around) because poppy seems to become more and more crazy every day. lots of tantrums, crying, screaming, and wanting to get into everything that bastian is playing with. i know once this baby comes, things will be pretty chaotic in our house. i guess you get more and more relaxed with each consecutive kid you have, caring less about messes, naps, clean faces, cute clothes, etc. i am preparing myself for someone to always be crying at our house and probably hearing “mom, mom” 100,000,000 times in a day.
with all the challenges that will come with three kids, i know it will be overshadowed with so many positives. one, i will feel like our family is complete and two, i get to snuggle with a new baby. through all the chaos will be loving memories of siblings growing up together.
lastly, i want to know everyone’s must have new baby gadget. it’s only been 18 months since poppy was born but things i feel keep getting cooler and cooler! like best new diaper bag, sleep sack, stroller, bottle, etc. i have my eye on a dock-a-tot… those things look amazing. let me know what you love!
