Another Gift

Justin and I are thrilled to announce that our family is growing! We’re expecting another baby to arrive in February of 2015.

David is clearly thrilled as well. I mean, have you ever seen someone so excited about something he knows nothing about?

I’m wrapping up my first trimester this week and amΒ veryΒ hopeful that the nausea and fatigue are going to come to a close soon. I haven’t been as sick this pregnancy as I was with David, but the fatigue is unbelievable.

David and the new one will be about 14 months apart. Did I ever in my life think I’d have two kids so close together? No way, but I am really looking forward to watching them grow up together!

We’ll find out if it’s a boy or a girl in late September. Truly, I’d be thrilled with either one. I think it would be so fun to have two boys so close in age, but I’d also love to have a girl.

As per a couple of ultrasounds, everything looks great! I saw theΒ baby wiggling away at my last appointment and it’s just as amazing as it was the first time.

Justin and I are both really thankful and excited for this next baby. In a way, I can’t wait for February to get here, but I’m also trying to savor my time with just David right now.

And he’s pretty easy to savor!

    How exciting! Our sons are the same age and I’ve been thinking about how old he’ll be when we’ll have another one but af least I can live vicariously through you (both!) right now!

    Ah congrats! I have been following your blog for a while now how exciting! My husband and I also just announced we will be having a baby in February and I’m finishing up my last week in my first trimester as well! What an exciting time. This is our first and I am beyond excited and nervous and anxious and everything feeling imaginable I think!

    Congratulations! The cuteness of these pics is simply overwhelming. πŸ™‚

  11. Posted August 4, 2014

    Such fun news to share! In my experience, going from 0 kids to 1 was a bigger adjustment than from 1 to 2. But the 2nd pregnancy was so much harder after chasing around a little one and not being able to plop on the couch whenever you want!

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations, you will love it!!! Love your attitude about gender, we felt the same way, too many fun things either way with finding out that second gender- whatever your baby is will be the perfect addition to YOUR family!

  17. Rachel says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations, Kate and family! What exciting news. I’m sure babies so close in age will bring challenges, but it can definitely be a riot to have a sibling that’s also your built-in best friend. Excited to follow this next chapter in your lives!

    congrats! I have three boys – first and second are 19 months apart and then the second and third 18 months apart. it is hard work, but you are giving David the best gift ever – a best friend for life. the second pregnancy (and any there after) are nothing like the first. it’s not all about you anymore – you need to tend to the little guy!

  37. Anne Marie says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    So happy for you!! You will love having your kids close in age. My two girls are 18 months apart. There are so many benefits. When a shirt didn’t fit my older girl anymore, I’d just take it off of her and put it on my little one. No storing of clothes. They were able to be on the same teams in soccer, same girl scout troop, etc. IT made things a lot easier on us as parents! Plus, now that they are 15 and almost 14, they share all of the same friends. Our house is constantly a huge gaggle of (very nice) teenage girls.
    I’m not going to lie- that first year with two babies was rough! But we got through it and have been reaping the benefits ever since. Congratulations!!!

  38. Posted August 4, 2014

    I have a brother 13 months older and one 19 months younger (and another almost six years younger). I really liked growing up as “peers”. I know it was tough on my parents but got easier as we got older. My mom used to say “I could get in the car and drive around but I couldn’t get out.” It was the era before front packs, back packs, car seats, double strollers, etc.

  39. Kristen says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations! I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and was thrilled to read all about David, and now I’m thrilled to read about your new little blessing!

  40. Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations! We just had our second baby boy and our first little guy is loving being a big brother! It’s just the sweetest thing πŸ™‚ So excited for you!

  41. Melanie says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Kate I am so excited for you and your growing family! What a blessing to be able to have another baby after what you went through with your first pregnancy. Can’t wait to hear if it is a little boy or little girl!!

  42. Constance says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congrats! My son and our future child (15 weeks and 4 days today!) will be 14 months apart! God decided to bless us with another child without us knowing, lol! We are thrilled to have another one on the way and I am truly happy for you!

    That’s so exciting. I hope the nausea and fatigue goes away and pray that the rest goes smooth. My husband and I just found out we will be having a baby in April. We have a 15 month old daughter, she’ll be almost two, when the new baby arrives. Would love to see easy maternity hairstyles, I know my hair goes crazy when pregnant.

    A huge congratulations to you and your family!! What a wonder gift. My niece and nephew are about 14-15 months apart, it’s amazing to watch the two of them grow together and feed each others knowledge. Some days may be more rough than others, but to watch them play together makes it so wonderful.

  79. Sara w says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    How exciting! I’m pregnant with number four, due in December. I loved following your first pregnancy and I can’t wait to see what you get to test and try for the two baby market! I can’t remember if you got the uppababy that converts to a double?

  80. Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations! What an incredible blessing from the Lord! Especially as it took a while to have David!

    So when you were filming the “Ask Kate” video, were you trying so hard not to give away the fact that you were pregnant?! I am laughing that you were just talking about adding to your family in the video!

    • Kate says
      Posted August 4, 2014

      Yep I thought about avoiding the question but I was like “well it’s TRUE. We DO WANT more kids one day” !

  84. Valerie says

    How wonderful, congratulations! You will just love seeing the two of them together. I remember bringing my second child home from the hospital and I didn’t even know my heart could love so much!

  87. Vanessa says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations!
    My oldest two are 14 months apart. It was a bit of a surprise seeing as it definitely didn’t just take one month of trying the first time around, but I love having them so close in age. There were definitely some rough days in there, but I wouldn’t change it.

  88. Stephanie says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congrats! We are expecting our first in January. So excited to share my pregnancy with you πŸ™‚

  89. S K says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    My sister and I are 13 months apart to the day. Everyone always thought we were twins until high school when our personal styles developed and we started doing our hair differently. It’s fun growing up with someone so close. But be prepared for fighting too. With someone so close in age you have to work harder to stand out. They will have lots of good memories growing up with a close sibling.

    But then again my parents had four kids in five years and three months so there were lots of us. Three kids under three years of age for five months…I’m not even going to try and break their record.

  90. Jessica Smith says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    I just found out that I am pregnant with our second child and due early March! Our children will be about 20 months apart. This time around, I will have a c-section due to slight complications with the first one. So any advice you could give on preparing for one, would be helpful. πŸ™‚ Congrats on the news!

  91. Sara E says
    Posted August 4, 2014

  104. Dana says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congratulations! My daughter and son are 14 months and 2 days apart. I won’t pretend it’s easy…the first couple of years are difficult, but after that it is really great. My kids are great friends. Family vacations are nice because they are close in age, not only do they entertain each other, but they could do the same things. We didn’t have to split up or not do something because one kid was too young or small. Now, my daughter is going to be a senior and my son a junior and they support each other in high school. I don’t regret the decision to have them close at all.

  107. Sydni Jackson says
    Posted August 4, 2014

    Congrats!!! I have an older brother who is 13 mo & 3 weeks older than me and we are so close now, and were when we were little!! (The pre-teen years were a little rough hahah). So I’m secretly hoping you have a girl πŸ™‚ I love my big bro!! Btw here’s something to look forward to – we potty trained together so my mom got that done all at once!

    I don’t know why, but “David and the new one” cracked me up. Sounds like a great name for a rock band. πŸ™‚

    So happy for you guys! I had a baby girl in February. Maybe they’ll be birthday buddies? I was due on the 14th but she took her own sweet time and was born on the 21st.

    Hi Kate!!! I’m a long time reader of your blog and was very excited to see you announce that you were pregnant with David, just a few short weeks after I had my first baby!!! I love seeing all your posts trying to figure parenthood out and thinking back to my experiences!!! Imagine my surprise when I open bloglovin today and see David in a big brother shirt!!! It just so happens that I’m scheduled to be induced with my second in 11 days, 15 months after my first was born!!! I can’t wait to read how your pregnancy goes and will be hoping for an easy one… The worst part is being super close to delivery and chasing an adventurous toddler around=) other than that, it’s great!!! Good luck!!!

    Congratations! It truly is a blessing to be able to get pregnant and have kids! I’ve been reading your blog for over 2 years now and during this time i’ve been struggling to get pregnant, just like you have with your first one. Unfortunately it still hasn’t happend to me. I’m so happy you named this blog ‘a gift’. For it truly is a gift! On the other hand it’s also difficut to see women are getting pregnant of their 2nd baboes, while you’re still in a battle field and unsure if you will ever be called mommy. It’s such an emotional and difficult subject. Anyways, I hope you’ll enjoy your 2nd pregnancy! I wish you all the best.

As a mom of four, I can assure you any difficulties you face will be balanced by many more blessings! I love following your blog, your IG profile, and your pinterest account. You are inspiring, beautiful, kind … and a lovely dose of the adult world when I am knee deep in caring for my littles. A final thought – I love the bobby pin under your blog name! Beautiful concept and design! It makes my typography and design heart smile. Have a great day!

    Congrats! My youngest two are only 13 months apart. It was crazy weird being pregnant for two years. They are 6 and 7 now, girl and boy, and are the best of buds. Sure they fight every now again, but honestly no complaints! They don’t ever remember a time in their lives without each other. I wouldn’t have it any other way! The first year with the two of them was the toughest. Coming home with a newborn and a 13 month old who had just learned to walk was sort of scary. Invest in lots of gates and barricade David in the room with you when you have to tend to the baby.

    Praise God! I’m so thrilled for you and your husband! My oldest 2 are 15 months apart and my youngest 2 are 12 months apart and it is wonderful. It’s so fun, so cute, and such a blessing to have kids that are on similar schedules and have similar interests. In all honesty, that first year is tough just because they both still have a lot of needs, but you’ll adjust. Just remind yourself that it will get better, and pray that God keeps David from being a late walker. πŸ˜‰
    Truly, congratulations. I know I’m a stranger, but I’m just so thrilled for your family. I love how God uses babies to be the every day miracles that reveal His love and grace for us.

    OMG Kate I’m so happy for you!! I’ve never commented before, but I’ve been following your blog since last year and I followed you throughout your first pregnancy and read about how long it took for you to get pregnant. This actually brought tears to my eyes πŸ™‚ CONGRATULATIONS!!

    Congratulations!! I have 3 beautiful boys, my oldest and second son are 13 months apart and I love how they have grown together (they are now 5 and 4) like most if not all other readers, I have followed you since your first pregnancy with David and am thrilled that you will be having another beautiful boy/girl to love and care for. Congratulations Kate & Justin and of course David too. I look forward to the next update soon πŸ™‚

    I am so happy for you. I have two little girls who are 17 months apart. They are 6 and 7 now. It took us 5 long years and one miscarriage to have our first daughter. The second one was a surprise and a blessing. I love having them so close together. It was REALLY tough at first….2 in diapers, going through the same stage one right after the other. I wouldn’t change it for the world though and thank god everyday!!!!!

    SO happy for you and your family!!! I started following your blog right after you got pregnant with David and I’m so thrilled to hear this news! I am 28 weeks now with my first and have gone back to several of your posts on various pregnancy/new baby topics time and time again. Can’t wait to see what baby 2 brings for you and your family!

    Congratulations! My little sister and I are 14 months apart! It was great having a playmate growing up! We had our fist share of sibling rivalry πŸ˜‰ but we were never lonely!
