Big Brother figured it out

We were waiting to tell Eli about this pregnancy. But last night he and I were dancing with the stars and he looked at me and outright asked, "Mommy - do you have a baby in your tummy?" Of course we couldn't lie, so we told him. He is so excited to be a big brother on earth. He keeps saying he wants a brother, but he says it's ok if it's a sister too. I don't know how he figured it out, but he did.

I began feeling Bubble Jack move last week. I don't remember feeling movement with either of the boys at 14 weeks, but they say that experienced moms usually notice it earlier. It's good to have the reassurance of movements, but is worriesome when I go a period of time without feeling Bubble Jack move and wiggle. It shall be well...

And so our family grows again...

It always amazes me how intuitive kids are!! Eli is gonna make a great big brother.

Glad you are feeling the baby. Always thinking and praying for you!!!

Blessings to you and this new baby! Praying for health and happiness for you all. I came across you at the Baby Loss Directory. I lost my daughter 8 weeks ago b/c of a knot in her cord (she was full term and we were expecting a healthy baby). This is a hard road to be on, but it helps to read others' stories and know I'm not alone!
