Between the holiday season, a whole lot of morning sickness and a bump that was not ever small, this was not exactly an easy secret to keep. We are over the moon to share that we are expecting baby DeFrehn number three… yes number three! And if that wasn’t excitement enough, we know that we will be having another sweet BOY.
This momma who spent three years uninterrupted as a “girl mom” and who currently has an 18 month old son who is just figuring out trucks, but likes to walk around in his sisters dress-up shoes, I am still in shock that I am going to be outnumbered with boys. Adalynn and I constantly grab each other’s cheeks and say…”Can you believe there is going to be another boy in the house?!” I feel incredibly blessed to have both my princess and these two little guys surrounding me and of course a husband who has had to do more laundry, shuffle kids and do more meals all while running his own business over the past few months.
This pregnancy has been significantly tougher than my other two. I feel like I have barely connected with friends or family and have been living in my tiny hole with my soon to be not so little family. It has been a constant reminder that life is crazy, messy and beautiful in all of it’s seasons…even ones that are spent just trying to get through the day. It also reminds me that my mantra about mommahood requiring a lot of coffee and a lot more grace is most certainly true. (Although, my desire for coffee is only just returning.)
I hope to be coming back to the writing, connecting, social media world, but more importantly diving back into work that fills me up with people I really love. Thanks for letting me live in my tiny hole the past few months, but my baby boy bump and I can not wait to see more of your faces soon.
