We got exciting news on Friday: Teddy is going to be a big brother to a…little brother! Yep! Two boys. Actually, including Ian and the dog, make that four boys. One lady. But, I figure there are worse things in life than being surrounded by a flock of men/boys who love me. And Ian has promised to get me jewelry. Lots and lots of Jewelry!
I definitely thought this new baby was a girl. Mainly because the first 14 weeks were so much harder and different than Teddy’s pregnancy. Even my doctor told me she thought it was a girl. So imagine the surprise when low and behold, another boy. And you know what? I can’t wait!
The image of Teddy, showing his younger brother the ropes, playing and rough-housing with him, cheering for each other on their respective sporting sidelines… those images are pretty amazing and I absolutely can’t wait until they take place.
Right now, we’ve tried to communicate to Teddy that the new baby is coming, but it’s still not very clear how much he really understands. I do know that he’s been super cuddly at times, which I love, and hope is him trying to get in some big and little brother bonding time. His younger brother is one lucky little guy to have Teddy showing him the ropes.
