i've been a terrible blogger.

sorry i dropped off the face of the earth for a bit folks, but moving is rough! we are finally getting settled in and the boxes are starting to diminish. still lots to do though! anybody want to come finish things up for us? anybody??...anyone? bueller?

anywho-we are glad to be in the new house and are ready for things to get back to normal-we're tired of living out of suitcases and boxes!

on another note, we did find out the gender of baby baker #2 a couple of weeks ago...i know...i know, what a horrible blogger i am...blah blah...i'll get around to sharing soon. promise!

for now here's a shot of my little helper :)

my baby.

it's started to sink in that my baby will no longer be my "baby" when this new little one comes along.  

big brother.

it's hard to take in right now. i'm feeling all sorts of emotions about it and the pregnancy hormones don't help. it's one of the most bittersweet things i can imagine, watching one baby grow up, taking on a new role in life and then welcoming another in his place.

it's the weirdest of feelings, a mix of loss and gain that i most definitely can't describe in its entirety.

whenever the sadness starts to creep in i remind myself that i still have 5 months with this baby sitting in front of me. 5 whole months with rylan as my baby. 5 whole months to kiss his chubby cheeks and to dance around the living room. just me and him.

i'm doing my best to just soak it all in. i love you baby.
both of you.

so they tell me baby is the size of an avocado this week, but i'm thinking otherwise. i usually don't "show" until the end of the day-if you know what i mean-(it's probably just all the food i'm devouring at this point) but i guess it's about that time though because this photo was taken before lunch even.

p.s. you guys should see all the "illegal" things i've been allowing into our house these days...oreos, twizzlers, sour patch kids...the husband is in heaven ;)

p.p.s. i have another appointment this week and we should be scheduling the ultrasound to find out the gender soon! can't wait to know if "baby avocado" is a boy or a girl!
