So Now You Know :)
Assuming you are reading this blog because you are my facebook and see my blog updates that are posted there, you now know that we are expecting Baby Becker #2!!!! The due date is January 13th, however we are going in 3 weeks to a dating ultrasound that will confirm the date is correct- the doctor thinks that we may be closer to 11 weeks today than 12. But who knows. We have a small firstborn so we may just make small babies...I would be okay with that for obvious reasons! If you don't know what reason that is, I simply ask you to consider what life will be like for me personally on January 13th. Enough said. ;)
Yes it was planned. Yes we are EXCITED! Yes we will find out gender- hopefully in 2 weeks. Yes it was killing us to keep it a secret. Yes this is why my blog posts died for basically the month of June. I have been sick as a DOG and so exhausted that I can barely move, let alone spend time playing and teaching Roman the way he deserves...so the blog had to be sacrificed. As did cooking. I blame that on the fact that I haven't been able to eat very much and I am very grateful that my loving husband has been happy to eat whatever I could think of that would sit well in my stomach.
Do we want a boy or a girl? Either!! Really. Despite my swearing that I want only sons (I'd still be happy if that's what God decided to give us- we have plans for at least 3 Becker children, all relatively close in age.) I actually would like a girl at some point. But only one. And she can come now or she can come later- doesn't matter to me! For Roman's sake, it would be fun for this one to be a boy. I like imagining the fun two brothers 18 months apart could have. So we'll take whatever God gives us and be grateful.
So there it is. Now you know what has REALLY been going on in the world of Beckers lately that I haven't been able to write. I haven't been posting status updates on fb as often as I would normally and I haven't been posting to the blog as often as I think of it because I couldn't say what was really on my mind! Ah, the relief of a secret told. :) So pray for a healthy baby and a happy, NO-NAUSEA momma when you think of us. I can't wait to keep you updated as we go along.
