As all of you should know by now, we are expecting baby number two – due in November!!  I have had many people ask me the same questions.  Here the questions and the answers:

What are we having?  We’re having a baby.  We won’t know if it’s a boy or a girl until I’m 20 weeks along, which won’t be until mid-June.  That being said, according to the Chinese Gender Chart, we’re having a girl!  According to Steve, the Chinese Gender Chart is good enough.

What does Claire think?  Claire is just as happy as she’s always been.  I look like I've always looked, so she doesn’t realize that we have a baby on the way.  However, Claire loves babies, especially her baby cousins, Allie and Kenley; so I’m sure she’s going to love being a big sister.

What are going to name the baby?  We have not yet chosen names for the baby.  We had Claire’s name picked out long before we found out we were expecting her, so it was easy to name her.  However, baby number two is going to be a challenge for us.  Aunt Lori has offered a suggestion of the name Hannah Grace if it’s girl.  Feel free to offer your suggestions as well, boy or girl.

How am I feeling?  I feel great!  I admit to taking a few naps with Claire these days.  And I’m eating Claussen pickles like they’re going out of style.  But I feel good and am excited about our new baby!

Just when I thought life was perfect, God went and made it even better!!

Congratulations, Amy, Steve, and Claire! This will rock Claire's world! (Not to mention yours.) But a sibling is the best gift that you can give your precious child. Oh, and the artwork, that's just the beginning. Soon you'll have two to think of interesting things to do. But, oh the memories! Congrats, again.

PopPop and MiMi can't wait to be PopPop and MiMi again either!!! The more the merrier! We couldn't be more excited! I'm sure as soon as Claire gets the idea of what's going on she will be so excited! Now we are getting ahead of some of our friends in the grandparent department! What fun! Just think of holidays, birthdays and Christmases!

SO excited for you!! She'll love her little sibling with all her heart, I'm sure! What a gift for your little family!

We have a million girl names we've yet to use, and seem to have run into a bit of a drought with boy names. I think we've used nearly all of them that we liked!
Prayers for a peaceful and beautiful pregnancy for you all!
