It's a ...

I thought this deserved its own post.

In case you didn't know yet, baby #2 is a BOY! Most of our family thought it would be a girl, including me, so we were all surprised! But we can't wait to have another sweet baby boy around, and I'm excited to bust out all Nick's super cute, barely-used baby clothes.

Nick is excited to have a baby brother, and when he's in the mood he likes to give the baby kisses :) When he's not in the mood, he says he doesn't want a baby. In which case we tell him it's not his baby, it's his brother and it's mommy's baby. Then he's just fine with it ;)

The pregnancy is going well. I feel huge and I get tired quickly, but I'm sure that has a lot to do with taking care of a toddler... and being pregnant. I'll be 26 weeks tomorrow, almost into the 3rd trimester. We haven't made a decision on a baby name yet.... I have one I like but we'll have to see if Jacob can warm up to it ;) I'll keep you posted.

Happy New Year!

Well Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
We really enjoyed our holidays, especially Jacob's vacations from work. We hope you had a good holiday season as well :)
Nick especially loved being able to spend time with family at Christmas and opening all his many, many presents. This is a picture of him with all his loot, just from Christmas morning at Grandma and Grandpa Pierce's house:

We taught him all about the birth of Jesus and that it's special to give presents at Christmas time, not just receive them. So he enjoyed wrapping presents for his cousins and watching them open them but I didn't catch any pics of that.

My mom, step-dad and younger siblings all moved to Wells, NV just after Christmas so it was really nice to get some time in with them and help them move. We're all very happy for them because Robert finally got a job and they have really been needing this, but we will miss them. It will be different with them gone. Here is a pic of me and some of my sisters on a girls' night we had before Chelsea and Krista moved. We were sad Emily couldn't make it.

There are a lot of things to look forward to in 2012- one of them is that three more babies will be added to my side of the family! Emily, Rachelle and I are all pregnant :)

We have approximately 15 weeks, 24 weeks, and 35 weeks in this pic :)

Just a couple more pictures...
