The New Kid on the Block

February 3, 2012 by Jennifer Carsen

Actually, more like the new kid in the womb:

We are delighted to introduce the Chickpea, scheduled to debut in late August (by which point I will undoubtedly be an enormously sweaty, massive, cranky mountain of preggo flesh). We’re all very excited.

Adding to the excitement is the fact that Dan and Alicia are also expecting again. In a truly impressive coincidence of timing, the new cousin is expected six weeks prior to the Chickpea – the exact same spacing that exists between Matthew and Lorelei. We could not have planned it that way if we tried (which, rest assured, we did not).

    Congrats! I checked your blog to find this, although I know a little late now, and I wanted to share my happy thoughts with you as I’m going through the same (due August 13). Excited to follow along in your journey as I go through mine (for the first time!)

      Thanks so much, Leeandra–and congrats to you as well! Please keep me posted as August 13 approaches; it’s quite a ride 🙂

  2. Horray! Congratulations! How are you feeling?

    Let me know if you have any questions on prep for 2! Ooh, I am so excited for you.

      Thanks so much, Alecia! I am feeling great and will most likely be picking your brain as I get further along in the process…I know your girls are about the same distance apart, age-wise, and I am a bit nervous about the logistics of parenting two who are just two years apart! 🙂
