two marches ago...


in march '09, we painted the future timbit's bedroom.
i always had the best intentions of decorating it with cute baby things but 2 years later the walls are still bare. unbelievable. but i guess that just makes it easier to decorate when ben moves out of this room this summer. yep, he's making room for the baby. we're pregnant - due late september!


i'm slightly horrified at how much i'm showing already at just a little over 3 months. i guess that's what happens when you have absolutely no muscles to hold anything back! while i'm still apprehensive to be adding to our family so quickly (yes, i know - it's not THAT quickly...but it feels like ben is a handful - how could i be lugging an infant around as well?!), our excitement for a second is growing everyday. tim's first reaction to finding out that we were pregnant was, "ben could really use a playmate." :)

at the moment, ben loves babies. he shouts out, "baby!" and "hi!" when he sees a stroller with a baby in it. he loves our friends' baby, kylie - mostly pointing at her hair, eyes, nose, and bellybutton. and he carries his own baby around sometimes (accurately named, "baby"), talking to him, attempting to feed him blueberries, and trying to fit both of them in his chair without squishing him. i know this could change when it's our own baby and it takes all the attention away from him BUT it's still nice to see him enjoying babies now.
