My girls....

It's so weird to think that in just 5 months there will be a new member of this family. We are thrilled, no doubt. We can't wait to have another sweet baby, but it's still hard for me to imagine another one. For almost 5yrs now, it's just been my girls! I worry that the girls will be too big to have a connection with this new baby (which I know is ridiculous and won't be the case), I wonder what was I thinking...things are so 'easy' now, we can just grab the girls, jump in the car and go, everyone is old enough to reason with, everyone is old enough to wipe their own butts-ha!, everyone sleeps now. Will I have enough time for 3 kids?! Will I even know what to do with a baby again!? hahaha! Again, I know these are all silly worries, but it's what we Moms do best...worry...about everything! :)
With that all being said, I see photos like this and think...of course, there will be enough time and love and excitement and they will all be the best of buddies! How could you not fit right in with these sweet, fun girls!? They are so excited about this baby, I will have more than enough help from these big sisters! :)

And, a belly pic of the newest Utley. I'm a little over 15 weeks already! HOLY MOLY! Time is already going too quickly. My next appt is next Friday...I will be almost 17 weeks!! It will be time to start scheduling the big u/s, the glucose test-yuck!, etc. I was SO sick until about 14 weeks (just as I was with the girls). But, like a switch, I woke up one day last week and felt like I could run a marathon! ha! I'm sporting a little bump, but nothing to write home about yet! :) In workout clothes, comfy or lose fitting tops, you wouldn't know I was pregnant, but in jeans and a fitted shirt, I have a nice little bump (some days it feels like a big bump-ha!). I am actually excited about getting a bump. I'm sick of just looking like I put on a few lbs! ha!
My predictions, as of now...I still 99.9999% sure that it's a girl (but again, we aren't finding out this time!). My due date is Sept. 9th but I am predicting a birthday of Sept. 13th. (both girls were late, too). Hoping and praying this pregnancy is as smooth and fun as my other 2! I actually love being pregnant and have been so fortunate so far. (I don't usually admit that around other women, but for the blog, I will! haha!)

Aww, what would pregnancy be without a few worries? You are so right that your girls are at the perfect age to be help and if they're anything like Ella and Cade, they'll fight over who gets to help more. So excited for all of you and can't wait to see the newest, little Utley! And you look great, by the way- Brat! haha!

How exciting! I think it's fun you aren't finding out :-)

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
