A growing family

We are excited and happy to announce that we'll be ringing in the new year with a new arrival! 
Baby C #2 - Due Date 12/31/11

I am 21 weeks along (tomorrow), and no, we are not finding out the gender of this baby either : )  Everyone will just have to wait until he/she is ready to make its grand arrival into this world.  I have had a co-worker tell me it is surely a girl though, and she is never wrong.  But then again, I had a stranger in the airport this week tell me I'm having a boy, and she has never been wrong either.  So it looks like one of them will be wrong this time around.

I have been feeling wonderfully from a physical standpoint, and have been questioning all along whether I am really pregnant (aside from this growing belly).  The mental side of pregnancy has been more of a challenge for me this time around, which I will elaborate at a future date, but right now I want to enjoy sharing the happy news that Baby C #2 is looking healthy and is growing right on track. 

When we told James that he was going to be a big brother he responded "I don't want to be a big brother" in his classic, pouty, 3-yr old voice.  Luckily he is coming around to the idea, and has told me that he has a baby in his belly too.  Chris has shot down the one name I have suggested, but he seems to be on board with James' suggestion of naming the baby Jellybean.  I guess that name works for a boy or a girl?  

Lots more to come over the next four months!

Congratulations Katie Beth! I'm so excited for your sweet, growing family. My guess is a girl and I think Jellybean is a perfect name :)
