Guess What, Reese? You Are Going To Be A Big Sister!

Reese, it's time for one of our talks again.I've got some really big news to tell you. Life changing news, really. Something really small is about to change all of our lives forever and we are so excited.

My story starts with this tiny little stick.

Wait, wait, wait, Reese. You don't want to grab that.

Um, this is awkward but...

Mommy peed on it.


I know, its gross. I'm sorry.

But, I think you need to know what this means.

You know how mommy and daddy have been praying for a tiny little addition to our family?


Yes, praying just like that.

Well guess what?


Yepp, it's what you're thinking.

We are having another baby!! That means you are going to be a big sister!!


I am so glad to see you are so excited about it!

I knew you would be. You are so friendly and active and I know you want someone to play with. Well you're little playmate is going to be coming sometime around April 26, 2013.

I want you to know, that you are always going to be so special to us. Mommy & Daddy love you for so many reasons. And you're special in a new way now... you're going to be a big sister!!


I am a big sister and I love my little brother and little sister more than they will ever know. They have been my best friends throughout my life and we've shared both really fun and really hard times together. I know you are going to love having siblings You've already been comforting me when I wasn't feeling well, so I know you will love being a big sister, too!


Remember two weeks ago when mommy was taking those pictures of her stomach and you thought it was so weird? Well, mommy is going to do something crazy brave and post them on the internet every month so we can watch your little sibling grow and tell it about what's happening at this very early stage of it's life.

I know, I'm excited for April, too.... but wait, I don't feel so well...
