Dear Olive,
We have some pretty amazing news to share. Come April next year, we will no longer be a family of 3, but a family of 4! We couldn't be more excited. (Actually, we're quite a bit terrified too, but definitely mostly excited.) I'm 15 weeks pregnant, and feeling extremely grateful and lucky to have the chance to be a mother to another little person. (I tried to keep this gratefulness in mid as I vomited behind my car in an indoor car park earlier this week.) I feel pretty happy and secure going through pregnancy for a second time. My first pregnancy was lovely because it resulted in you, but it was also filled with many struggles and anxieties, anxieties that I'm just not feeling much of this time around. We are going through the same birth centre, we have the same amazing midwife, and I feel so much confidence in the whole process, and in my body. But telling you and sharing in your joy has been, by far, THE most amazing thing for Shane and I. You are literally beside yourself with excitement to be a big sister (finally!). Something tells me you're going to make a pretty great one.
