It's about time!

I'm outed on Facebook: we are having our second child sometime in early to mid December. Frederick is going through a very strong "MINE!" stage and its hard to see him having a very easy time with another family member in the picture... And taking so much of me up...but I know 6 months is a long time and he will do a lot of growing and learning and developing during that time. I'm sure it will be a challenging and wonderful transition for us all! 
Yes, we will be going back to Blossom Birth and Wellness Center in phx; we had such an incredible beautiful experience there, I couldn't imagine it any other way. 
And no, we do not plan to find out the sex. I actually dislike driving people crazy with that but we loved waiting to be surprised :) :) :) :) 
As my belly is starting to grow outward (much more quickly than I remembered last time) it's becoming more real. It's strange though because w Fred's pregnancy I focused soley on him and myself. And now it's mainly JUST Freddie! But I've been reminded by wonderful Nichelle (my doctor-one of three women who help deliver babies at Blossom) to take time to send this new little one plenty of love and having peace by taking care of myself. I'm learning to slow down a little, prioritize more, and gain lots lots lots more patience with Frederick, Collin and myself. 
I'm much more tired, sick, cold, emotional but less drooly!! And much more excited to give birth because I know how intense, insane, emotional, vulnerable, empowering, strengthening, and..really amazing it will be for me, our new little one, our family. 

Here are some super cute photos of Freddie, my one and only first born.
