Natalie has news to share…
Natalie will be a fantastic big sister! She likes babies and is increasingly compassionate. She is very concerned whenever someone else is crying – she often thinks its due to a boo boo. She is quick to send her “Mousey” over for some kisses to make the person feel better. We’re still working on sharing, but what 20-month-old isn’t? She also has a lot of fun tricks to share with a little sibling… for example, just this morning at the Children’s Museum, Natalie invented a nose-picking device!
However, Natalie has about six months to wait before she really puts her big sisterhood into action… “Pinto” (bean’s) is expected to arrive around:
So, Natalie and “Pinto” will be about 2 years, 3 months apart. We’re hoping – close enough to be friends with each other, but far enough away that they have their own space.
My pregnancy has been going well so far – I was tired in the first trimester, of course, but getting less so now. My food aversions haven’t been nearly as strong as the first time around, but oddly enough, are pretty similar (e.g. Cracklin Oat Bran – my fav non-pregnancy cereal – and coffee – not for me, but anyone around me). At just more than 13 weeks old, Pinto is weighing in at 1 oz. and is 3 inches long. S/he is definitely eager to show everyone that s/he is here – I feel like my belly has been sticking out for at least a month.
Thanks for sharing in this fun news with us! Love, Erin, Jordan and Natalie
