Proud Parents of a Peanut

A peanut?? That's right...I have a peanut shaped person living in me. He or she will be born on or around April 4th, and we're pretty excited about it. I went to the doctor for the first time a couple weeks ago, and so far everything looks good. She or he was wiggling their little arm nubs like crazy. It was fun to see. Today, Taylor and W came with me to another screening ultrasound. They gave us a CD with pictures and a couple short video clips, which is extremely cool.

Hopefully W gets over his hatred for other babies -at least the ones mom gives any kind of attention to- in the next 7 months. Cause like it or not, there's gonna be a new baby on the block. :)

Congratulations Stephanie! I think you are the 3rd person I know who has announced this week they are pregnant (and it is only Tues.)! Can't wait to find out if it will be a boy or a girl! And I am sure Warren will LOVE his baby brother or sister.

Michelle said...

Congrats Steph!!! I am so excited for you guys. I can't wait to see what you are having. I hope your feeling well.

Jamie Ortega said...

Yay I am so excited for you guys!!! Dont listen to what others say about it being hard having two kids. Its great! And so much easier the second time around! And I am sure Warren will love his new baby brother or sister.

Carolyn said...

Congratulations!!! That is so exciting! No wonder Amy was saying I had to get cranking so my mom could still compete with Amy in the grandkid dept, haha :)

Sarah said...

You know with all that kicking on the video it looks like a boy. Either that or Warren's sister wants to come out and show him who is going to be the boss...

Kids are funny with babies. Everything seems to just fall into place just when you think it won't.

Congratulations!

Sarah said...

Congrats, Steph! That's fun news. I think mine is a Lemon right now. I love how they always compare them to foods...it stops me craving that particular food for about a week anyway :)

OH, I love the peanut baby already! Cute, cute, cute!

Soooooo, I was thinking ... if Warren ends up totally loathing the peanut baby, maybe W can come chill with me? I mean, just a thought... Just think about it, ok? :)

Congratulations to your cute little fam!!

Jade and Charla said...

I love the little video...they are moving around like crazy. I guess now is the time to move, soon it will be too cramped in your stomach!
Congratulations! Warren will love the baby... it just might take a little bit.
I have been praying for you that you will not get sick - my mom let the secret out a while ago...we are excited for you!

Stephanie,
It was a pleasure to see you here in Lakewood. You always make me smile.
The baby news is wonderful. I forgot to get your home address so we can mail you a wedding announcement for Carly and Davi. Please email me at sjohnson@charleswright.org.
Thank you, take care.
Love,
Sister Johnson

Congrats!

I swear April is the perfect month to have a baby...right at the end of flu/RSV season, still cool enough so you're not dying of heat while 9 months pregnant, starting to get nice so you can go outside and not go stir crazy with a newborn. And then they learn to crawl just as it's getting cold--so they crawl INSIDE not on grass and dirt. And then they learn to walk, just in time for spring and summer. It's perfect! Nice planning! (Did I mention my baby is due in December!?!?!)

Kerri Whitney said...

Hey we are so exicted and happy for you! Hope you are feeling good!

MacKenzie said...
