Things are expanding at a rapid pace over here in Casa de Dorobek… that’s right my belly and our family are growing! I’m pregnant with baby #2! I’m 17 weeks, ahh! I really wanted to wait until September 24th to spill the baby beans since that is the same day, 2 years ago, that I told y’all about our Max baby! But, I can’t wait any longer! Maxwell is very excited to announce that he is going to be a… big brother!
And all of these adorable pictures were taken by my friend, Sarah. If you are looking for an amazing, affordable Austin photographer, check her out!
This picture was taken after the 5 minute session with his “Hello my name is Big Brother” sticker, and Sarah asked him to smile… gotta love a little baby tude’!
We’ve been talking about being a “big brother” and having a baby a lot. But, I’m fairly he certain he has no idea what “big brother” means. But, he does get “bee bee”. He points at pictures of himself, babies in books, or other babies when we are out and about and says “bee bee”. I guess that is a good start, right?!
After our 5 minute session inside, we thought it might be fun to get a few more big brother pictures outside. Maxwell had other plans, he put on his sunglasses, grabbed the big blue ball, and declared it was time to play… and get really dirty!
The cute picture below, was my first attempt to take pictures of the big brother! Then, I called Sarah 🙂 Also note, this was before he got his 2nd haircut! Oh how I love those curls! Please tell me his curls will grow back?!
Y’all, so let’s be real. I am going to have 2 kids under 2 (for a month)! And let’s talk about a toddler and a baby sharing a room? Is that crazy? I’m thinking the baby will sleep in our room for a few months and then transition the little nugget into a crib in the same room with Max who will (fingers crossed) be in a big boy bed? I’m reading this book called Bringing Up Bébé, where the author talks about how most French babies “do their nights” by the time they are 4 months old. Yea, we need to work on that! When did your babies “do their nights”? Max was about 10 months old! And according to the book, it doesn’t matter if the baby is bottle fed or breastfed! We have a 3 bedroom house, but it is set up with a master suite (in my opinion) very far away from the other 2 bedrooms. So, we currently live on the side with Max. And the guest suite is great for company! Also, moving Max to a big boy bed? That needs to happen in the next 20 weeks or so. Tips? Tricks? Suggestions? Should I just buy another crib?
I feel like I need to read up on my tips and tricks for newborns post! I’m so excited/ nervous all over again. Anyone else pregnant? Due on leap day? Have a birthday on leap day?! How fun would that be?! Tips for 2 under 2?
