Gus has a secret...

...and he'd like to let you in on it!


It’s a good thing he’s got such a great best friend in his doggy, because life will be changing around our household in about 6 months.  


NO NO NO Gus!  We don’t ride Bella!  She’s not a horse, she’s your puppy.  GENTLE Gus!

Wait, what’s that say?

You’re going to be a big brother, in 2012?


How do you feel about this news?


Yeah, we’re all pretty excited. 

Little guy, you’re going to be a great big brother. 


We can’t wait to see if your brother or sister has that same bright smile.  It has just been the light of our life these last, well nearly two years.  The greatest joy we’ve ever known has been watching you grow into the silly, charming, precocious little boy that you are and we get to spend every day with you!  How lucky are we, to be your parents?       


Okay, we said NO GUS!  Get off the dog, we’re serious about this!

Goodness, people keep telling me that he’ll do a lot of growing up between now and January.  Are they just being nice? 


But I’m still going to hold them to it.  ;)

(I've been blogging since we found out I was pregnant, but have been waiting to post them until friends and family were all in on the secret.  So over the next week or so I'll be publishing some of those "flashback" posts.  Warning: I was very neurotic and frazzled at the beginning, I'm happy to say I've calmed down a bit since then, though I'm sure all my worrying and fears about being a mom of two will only intensify as my belly grows.  Truly though, we're so so excited, and feeling incredibly blessed to be adding to our family!)
