Yes, its true. Baby number 2 is on the way! I’m about 9 weeks along now. I’m not sure that it has really sunk in yet, mostly because I don’t feel very different, other than needing to eat every couple hours. I am, of course, very excited for the new baby, especially whenever I see someone with a newborn. But at the same time I find myself almost feeling guilty because Kaira isn’t going to be our only baby anymore. I’m sure that she’ll still be spoiled rotten, but I know she loves all the attention she gets right now. I think she’s going to be a great big sister though, and there’s no way I wanted her to be an only child, so I think she’ll thank us some day. I can’t imagine not having my brothers and sister around, or what it would have been like growing up as an only child. I want Kaira to have siblings like that too.

I can’t quite decide if I want a girl or a boy this time. We really, really wanted a girl the first time, but this time I just can’t decide. I’d love another girl, and considering that everything we own of Kaira’s is pink, it’d be easiest with another girl. But we need a boy too! We can’t not have a boy in the family. I guess if I have a girl this time, that just guarantees that we’ll have a third child at some point!

Kaira will be starting preschool this August. I think she’s really going to enjoy it and that it will be good for her to be around some other kids her own age. At the same time though, it kind of breaks my heart that she’s old enough to go to preschool. She seems to be getting so grown up lately, and I’m not sure if I like it. She’s talking up a storm, saying words that we didn’t even know she knew (and a lot in Spanish, thank you very much Dora), she sings songs, she counts (English and Spanish) and is getting very good at her ABC’s. I’m so proud of my baby. :-)

We went up to Cheyenne this weekend and saw a lot of the family. Grandma Esquibel is 94 now (wow!), so it was nice to go see her. Kaira is now completely in love with her Grandpa, its adorable. They played together the whole time we were there. “Come on Grandpa, follow me!” So cute. She also had a blast riding her trike all through the house and around outside. Its so nice to see how much she likes him though, which probably means we should try to get up there more often.

I saw in my last post that I was just starting work at the hospital (which means it was obviously a long time ago!). The job is going pretty well, I enjoy it and the people that I work with. My schedule changes every week, some are better than others…but hey, its a job!

We’re getting ready (as usual) for more trips. Next weekend we’ll be heading to Lincoln to visit the family there. It will be a quick trip, but it will be nice. I think the plan is to head to the zoo in Omaha, which I’m sure Kaira will love. She’s all into animals, especially since she can name them. We went to the Aquarium here last weekend and she loved it, she’s still talking about all the animals she saw there. A few weeks after that trip, we’ll be going up to Breckenridge for our annual summer vacation. That’s always fun. :-)
