Oh, Baby!

Exciting news for the Regan family…

We are expecting our 2nd child in June 2016!

I am over the moon excited (and a little anxious!) about having another baby! Being pregnant for the second time is a lot different than the first for me. Well, first, to say the morning sickness has been terrible is an understatement. I was NOT expecting that! But I am 17 weeks now and finally starting to feel better. And in case you’re curious, the baby is now a size of an apple!

When I said this time around is different, I mean that in the best way because I KNOW now what being a mother is like. And it’s amazing. Our little girl, Taylor Rose, is now a year and a half and getting to be her mom has been the greatest gift. And I get to be a mom AGAIN.

Taylor has changed our lives in the best way. I think I’ve changed as a person too after becoming a mother. My priorities and goals in life have shifted quite a bit since she was born and I have never been happier. I can’t wait to meet our little one and I can’t wait to see Taylor be a BIG SISTER! Summer can’t come fast enough!

Don’t get me wrong, I am little anxious for those first couple months when you are exhausted and endlessly changing diapers. Only this time we’ll have a toddler running around too! Thankfully my mom and mother-in-law are nearby to help us out. I don’t know what we would do without them sometimes!

This time around too, I don’t think we will worry as much. When Taylor was a newborn, we were constantly checking to make sure she was breathing and that we were doing everything “right”. Of course, I’m sure we will have those moments at times but not as often.

We’ll be finding out the gender next month and planning a small gender reveal party with our family. Boy or girl, what do you think?

Thanks for reading and if you have any tips for two, please share!
