We are so excited to FINALLY share with you that we are happily (and nervously! LOL!) expecting BABY #2 this OCTOBER!!! We feel so unbelievably lucky and blessed that we were able to get pregnant again. We always dreamed of having two children … maybe even three (we will see if I can convince myself again! LOL) and it was important to Justin for our kids to be close in age (just like Justin and his brother, Matt!) … and let’s face it, I’m no spring chicken anymore!! LOL!!
We can’t wait to find out if we’re going to be having another boy or a little girl … actually, we have had the results in a sealed envelope just sitting on our counter at home for WEEKS and we haven’t decided when and how we want to open it!! I thought it would be driving me crazy knowing that we could know instantly but I haven’t thought much about it, I think it’s driving everyone else mad though! LOL!! I know I’m going to be a blubbering mess, either way, I think it would be so cool to watch Leo grow up with a little bro, just like Justin and Matt … but then again, it would be so fun to have a little girl in our home and to watch Leo take care of his little sister. Either way, I’m just so grateful to have this opportunity again. To anyone out there, who are trying for a baby and are having a bit of a tough go, please know that we’re sending all of our baby fairy dust your way and we’re praying for you as we know that this doesn’t come easily to everyone.
Gender aside, I’m actually more curious to see what it’s going to be like living in a household with TWO children!! I have SO MANY questions!! Maybe you guys can help me along the way?? Like what happens if Leo goes to bed and the baby wakes him up?? I’m sure that happens to a lot of families! Or what if they both need me at once? Obviously, I know there are so many families out there that have two or more children but I already find it to be so busy with just one … I can’t imagine how things will become busier!
I also find myself thinking about my relationship with Justin and work … and me as an individual, I wonder how it will affect my career, my business, and the team?? ALL YOU MAMAS OUT THERE, LET ME KNOW!! LOL!! I already feel like my personal hygiene and fitness has suffered so much in the last year … LOL!!! My ass is lumpy and my toes have seen better days … my hair looks like a combo of Tina Turner and Jane Fonda … how the hell am I going to manage?? LOL!! I also worry A LITTLE BIT about Nacho … I feel like he is a pretty lucky dog but I know that his amount of walks have already been reduced! Eeepp!!
I’m sure most of you are wondering how I’ve been holding up lately and I have to admit, this pregnancy has been completely different than my first! I wasn’t feeling so shit hot in the beginning to the point where the smell of WINE made me want to gag … what the hell?? LOL!! And I couldn’t keep much down except for water so it was hard to find meals that I really enjoyed! But now that I’m passed my 1st trimester I am feeling A LOT better and I’m starting to POP which is SO EXCITING!! I’ve also started buying some new maternity clothes (surprise surprise!! LOL!!) and I can’t WAIT to start blogging more about maternity fashion … look out new mamas and mamas to be … LOL!! I’ve already started linking my favourites over on my dedicated shop page!
Justin, Leo, Nacho and I are so EXCITED that our family is growing, we can’t wait to see how the family dynamic will change (we have been thinking about names ever since Leo was born!!) and I can’t wait to share this new journey of ours with you!! Make sure to check out the vlog below as this time around we made sure to document some moments to share with you, from the bad, the good and the ugly!!! LOL!! We’re also sharing how we revealed the BIG NEWS to our family and friends!!!
I hope you enjoyed the vlog and that you will continue to follow along with us as we embark on this new wild adventure … and to the mamas out there … GIVE ME ALL YOUR ADVICE BELOW!!! I need all the tips and tricks I can get!!!
Jilly, Justin, Leo, Nacho … and Baby #2
