My kids, the little ones, are obsessed with babies. Payson pretends he’s pregnant all the live long day. Both he and Ember breastfeed their babies all throughout the day. They bring their babies with us on errands, they point out all the babies in the store, they’re just plain old obsessed!
I didn’t know if he’d be able to tell what was on the screen or if the pixelated weirdness of ultrasounds would lessen his excitement. I told him ahead of time that we’d only see a little dot or a small bouncy ball shaped thing and that would be the baby!
The minute he saw that tiny little blob on the screen and I told him I could see the heart beating he was giggling and happy because I’d told him all along (since we found out I was pregnant) that we wouldn’t know for sure if we were having another baby until we saw the baby and the baby’s heartbeat.
So. Yep. Baby #5 will be joining us in early November!
A few more little-kids-pretend-breastfeeding pictures and also some early pregnancy ones of me (yikes) below!
The photo on the right, below, is when I was 8 weeks along.
I’ll do a separate post about the kids’ reactions. Allan and I sat down with each kid alone at different times to tell them. Each reaction was adorable.
