So I have a secret. A secret I've had since November. It's a pretty awesome secret too. A few people knew about the secret but not yet "the world". Keeping secrets is fun and frustrating at the same time. Thankfully something happened today and I don't have to keep the secret anymore.
I am sure that some people might have a few guesses by now. Probably had a guess or two just from reading the post title. Some may even be right but probably more are wrong than are right. But the ones that are wrong are most likely close, very close. This secret is so AWESOME and so perfect and I can't even believe how lucky we are. I am sure that by now y'all are thinking out with it already! So okay, out with it. I just wanted a little extra build up to fill the post preview. :-)
Back in November we got a phone call from Reagan's birth parents. They informed us they were expecting another baby due in May and that they want us to parent that child too! Of course we said yes and after that phone call I immediately began to panic a little about how I only have two arms and two hands and one extremely active toddler and how on earth was that going to work with adding a second. LOL The panic didn't last long and the seasoned parents that I told early on laughed at the memory of their own panic over the same thing upon learning #2 was on the way. From then on I've been so excited to add to our family and even more excited for Reagan and the new one that they would grow up together and that the fact that they are genetically related to each other will hopefully help them through those teen year identity crises moments that may crop up.
Well today, at 27w 1d we finally got to get the BIG ultrasound. It was wonderful and amazing and the baby is perfect. No anomalies were found, no evidence of neural tube defects, perfect looking spine, heart and other organs. The tech even processed a 3D picture for us just for fun. Look at this gorgeous face!
