Big Announcement :

Baby2 announcement 23

I think the title and the photo above says it all :)!  We are having another baby and Will is going to be a big brother!  David and I are so excited, it’s been such an amazing journey since we found out we were pregnant the first time and Will has been so much fun.  There are definitely trying times but they are far outweighed by the wonderful moments.  We knew we wanted to have our kids be close in age, David was going for Irish twins like he and his sister  but I vetoed that.  I wanted to plan the next baby to be born outside wedding season.  I won he lost ;)!  We are due in 2014 which means I will actually stop shooting about a month before the baby comes.  Much better then last season where I shot a wedding 3 days before having Will!

So our little family of 3 is becoming a family of 4!  It’s amazing how much things have changed over the last year, our announcement photo looks a little different then last time.  We miss Maxie so much but Sam keeps us distracted.  He is getting so big and poor Sadie just looks at us like Mommy Daddy what happened.  There is so much change going on for her.  Hopefully by the time this new baby arrives she will be better buddies with Will.  She has already started hanging around the high chair at feeding time :)!

Enjoy a few photos taken by my mother in law who got a crash course on how to use my camera last night!  I had all kinds of ideas for the announcement photo and about the only thing I remembered was Will’s shirt!  lol!!!  Oh well :).
