Fall is Here!

First I want to say thanks to everybody for all the sweet comments and emails. You guys are the best. Hopefully I'll answer the handful of questions I got, in this post.
I am currently about 5 weeks, which makes the baby due in June. The official due date is June 29th. That will make Natalie and new baby about 21 months apart. It wasn't a surprise, we actually planned it. Some people have questioned my sanity. :) And I tend to agree with them some days when I've chased Natalie around all day, but I'm glad they will be close in age. I had some fertility issues when we were trying to get pregnant with Natalie, so we didn't want to put off trying for number two. We were pleasantly surprised that it happened so fast this time around!
We went to the doctor today although it was basically just to confirm that there is a baby growing in there. He did do an ultrasound, but because it's so early all we could see was the embryo sac. I go back in a couple of weeks for another ultrasound. The 1st trimester tiredness is already setting in, but other than that I'm feeling pretty good.

So what else have we been up to? This past weekend we went to Tate Farms. My boss and his wife took his employees and families to the local pumpkin patch. Natalie had an absolute blast. She rode in the corn train with Annessa, picked out a pumpkin in the patch, and played her little heart out in the corn bin. We took so many pictures! Here are just a few of my faves.

Great pics! I love the one with Daddy in the pumpkin patch--SO cute!

Oh--Dani has the very same shoes!

21 months is a great age difference. It's not that bad having them close together; it's much easier when you don't get completely out of the "baby" phase before introducing a new one. Honestly the hardest part is the exhaustion while you're pregnant! Little ones have no patience for Mom being tired and sick...but I'm sure you already know that!

Congrats on the new little one! My boys are 22 months apart. And everyone thought I was crazy too! I also had some problems getting pregnant with Ethan and was pleasently surprised when Owen came so fast. It is work to have them so close together. And somedays I wonder what did I do to myself. But in the last several months my boys have really started playing and laughing together. And that makes it all worth it. They always have each other and I love that! And I get to dress them alike which I think is fun. So much congrats! So happy for you!

I don't think you're crazy at all, it's good to have them so close! My husband and I have been talking about that too...who knows? :)

Welp, you've answered all my questions :-). Glad you're feeling so well.

My goodness, June sure seems like a long ways away. But I know for you, it'll pass by quickly.

LOVE the pumpkin patch pictures. I'm going with Jayla's K class to a local pumpkin patch tomorrow. Can't wait.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
