Meet the Sullivans: Big Brothers Are the BEST!

Big Brothers Are the BEST!

We've got some exciting news to share today! Owen is going to be a BIG brother!



I'm just over 12 weeks and our next sweet little one is due at the beginning of December!


Owen is so excited to have a sibling and if you ask him, he's really really really hoping it's a boy. Although, I'm sure he'll have lots of fun with "our baby", as he calls it, whether we have a boy or a girl.


He's already been doing his reading to prepare himself, and laying out some ground rules and making plans for when the baby comes, like:
  • He'll hold the baby, and sometimes I can too. 
  • B, granny and his cousins are HIS and the baby has to find its own. 
  • The baby cannot play with his army men or Legos because it will choke (glad he's got that one down). 
  • He, the baby, mommy and daddy will all sleep in mommy & daddy's bed together. 
  • He'd really prefer if the baby were a big boy when it came out, and not a baby, and definitely not a girl. (going to have to work on explaining that one to him)
  • When the baby comes we're all going to be a family! (that's one of the sweetest things he's told me)

We're all so grateful to be growing our family. This is something we've been hoping and praying for for quite some time. I had my second prenatal appointment this morning and everything is looking great! I'll be back with more details next week.

Congratulations, I am so so thrilled for you! I was actually thinking about you the other day hoping that things were going looking up in that department... strange maybe, but I was. I hope your pregnancy is going smoothly and continues to do so! (And baby will be born same time of year as K!.. she was due 12/6 but born 11/30)

Congratulations!! I love that Owen is already laying out ground rules. So sweet. What book(s) did you get for him? We're going to be sharing the big news with our littles soon, so I'm looking for a few good big sibling books to pick up.
