Q&As with Anni, the mommy:
Are you expecting a boy or girl?
What is the baby’s name?
Who picked out the baby’s name?
How &/or why did you decide on your baby’s name?
It’s a shorter version on Alexander
Was the pregnancy planned or a surprise?
Planned but came earlier than expected. Lol
How did you share the news with the daddy?
Had to let him know we would be cancelling a cruise we booked due to being too far along pregnant
Is this your 1st baby? If not, what number?
If there are older siblings, how did they react to the news of a baby brother/sister?
Brother still too young to understand.
How did you share the news with extended family and friends that you were expecting?
Lex brother wore a Big Brother shirt to family gathering
Did you have a gender reveal? If so, briefly tell me about it.
Yes. We did a gender reveal in which we used a balloon purchased at the Dr. office so no one knew the gender until we popped it. We also was able to find out the gender in time for brother’s 1st birthday so we got to celebrate Ekin’s 1st birthday and find out the gender to his sibling.
What are some interesting facts about “this” pregnancy ?
Having a toddler to take care of it seems the pregnancy is flying by. Mommy feels a little terrible for not documenting and taking belly pictures like I did with my first pregnancy.
What are you most excited about for the baby’s arrival?
A newborn to snuggle. Can’t wait for another boy so the brothers can have each other to grow up together.
What are you most nervous about for the baby’s arrival?
How is brother going to react to new sibling
