Corbyn's Announcement

That's right, Corbyn's going to be a big brother!
I'm due Cinco de Mayo, but because Corbyn was such an elephant baby, I'll probably be induced before then. At my first appointment, the doctor asked if I had any complications with Corbyn. I said that he was 10 pounds and he replied, "Yes, that is a complication. We'll keep an eye on that this time." So maybe baby #2 will be born on our anniversary - April 27th!
I'm 12 weeks along and feeling good. I've been tired and a little queasy - especially in the mornings - but I haven't been as sick as I was with Corbyn. And I wasn't even that sick with Corbyn, so I'm feeling lucky. We heard the heartbeat on Thursday which really made it seem a lot more real. With Corbyn I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks, but they didn't do one this time. So that little heartbeat was the first proof that there really is something growing inside me!
Of course we'll be happy with either a boy or a girl, but we're thinking pink. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I had a feeling it would be a girl - but we'll see. My mom wasn't as sick with me and Diana as she was with Jared, so that's another indication that it might be a little girl. We'll find out just before Christmas!
If it's a girl, we'll name her Caitlyn Joan Phillips and if it's a boy, we'll name him Logan Ririe Phillips.
We're very excited! Corbyn loves babies right now, so hopefully that will last for the next 6 months until we get a new baby of our very own!

Your neighbor, Amera, is very kind :) not one bit creepy!

I was kinda surprised that everyone knew Corbyn when we went for our walk and called him by name - very friendly neighborhood. Works out well to have a shared backyard!
