Big News | We Are Having Baby #2

I’m finally back, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for so long, but I do have some big news to share with you, and when I say Big…I mean Big because I’m now 36 weeks pregnant and let me say….I am BIG. I’m sorry that I’m just now sharing the news about baby#2, especially since “he” will be here in 4 weeks, but in my defense this pregnancy has been really hard on me. It’s been so much harder than my first pregnancy, and if you read my first Pregnancy Journey you may remember how difficult of a time I had, and to be honest, that pregnancy was a walk in the park compared to this one.
I will share my pregnancy journey as I get closer to my due date (March 13th), as for today I am excited to share that Riley is going to be a Big Sister to a little mister.
So you may be wondering if this little mister has a name….and I’m thrilled to say, YES, but up until about a month ago I could have sworn his name was going to be John Doe…and that’s no joke. Jairus was dead set on a select few names and I didn’t like any of them. I mean the thought of calling the baby growing in my belly a name that I didn’t like was just not going to work for me, and of course every name I came up with was shot down before I could even say it. Frustrating, right?!! So after months of bickering back and forth we finally decided on Reese James Barringer.
Riley on the other hand doesn’t agree with that name, she said his name is going to be “Snakey On-gone Keys” I have NO idea where she got that from but she has decided that is his name…well that and baby brother. She has quite the imagination and sense of humor to say the least. You can tell by the pictures below. Her daddy always says, you need to be in a shell because you’re a nut. She definitely keeps us on our toes and full of life!!
At this point in my pregnancy Riley is pretty go with the flow about “baby brother” but it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions for my sweet baby girl which causes my emotional roller coaster (thanks to all of the wonderful pregnancy hormones) to get that much more emotional. I can’t help but think about how the dynamic of our every day life is going to change, but more than anything, I worry about Riley and how it’s going to make her feel when mommy has to do things for the baby and can’t always drop what I’m doing to play with her. The unknown is both scary and exciting, but I know this little boy is truly a blessing and that everything will work itself out, and while Riley has definitely had her highs and lows about becoming a Big Sister, I know that at the end of the day, she is going to Amazing!
Here are a few more pics of my sweet girl….and one of me, you can see how big I am. This boy has really done a number on me. lol
Until Next Time…..and I promise it won’t be 4 months like it was last time!! 🙂
