It’s a girl!

Last year, we moved into a new home.  This year, I am expecting my second child.  And it’s a girl!

Yes, I am now 20 weeks pregnant and on my way to becoming a mother of 2.

happy mom- 4mos

I have been very lazy these past few months, as I was still battling with first trimester pregnancy symptoms. But now that I am on my 2nd trimester,  the aversion to food has now been replaced with a humongous appetite, and the constant tiredness is  now replaced with a new surge of energy giving way to my burning desire to travel again and experience Europe before I go for another hiatus.   Needless to say, I feel great again sans the big belly.

True to literature, 2nd timers really do show quite early.  The picture above is an old one when I was still pregnant with Jakub.  This is really how I look like now.

And this did not escape Jakub’s observation.  One day as he was trying to play his make believe game with us, he said he’s a spider, his Tata is the dog and Mama is the elephant.  Oh well…

    Dear Grace,
    I am so so so happy for you! My mom used to say that two kids are easier than one, and in many ways it’s true, because they entertain each other. I wish you all the best!

      Thanks, Naomi! I believe so too. The experiences you share in your blog with your children, I think, is living proof. Too much love and happiness abound.
