I think it’s about a year and a bit ago that we made an announcement…about our Ellie girl coming into our lives…

so for our 2nd announcement to our friends and family…this time..it’s a human baby coming into our lives!  We are so excited for the new addition.  This is our rainbow baby for those that knows what that means.  And though we are a bit nervous, we have passed the 12 weeks mark and into the 2nd trimester!  Nick and I have never made it this far, so we are allowing ourselves to be excited now.

Nick also knows I was holding off doing anything for the nursery this time around until we make it pass the 12 weeks.  And then the flurry of “nesting” activities begins (need to catch up on the blog posts!)

One of the first thing we wanted to do was involved Ellie in our announcement – so we did a mini photoshoot at home.  Man. photographing a puppy doing what you want it to do (sit/stay/look) is hard.  It’s just as hard as I understand it to take pics of babies. You have the precious 2 secs before it all changes.

I was so happy with the result, so wanted to share it here:

Baby Chan Announcement

Doesn’t she look like a proud big sister already?!

(side note – we are keeping the baby gender a surprise, so we really have no idea if it’s a boy or girl – but some people thought the saying “big sis” implies i’m having a girl?!  no.  the Big sis refers to Ellie.  She is the older child here.)

Also want to share the pics that didn’t make the cut…but I think it’s still cute.

This was the runner up:

Baby Chan Announcement 2

And the ones that never made it to “editing”:

Ellie is such a cutie.  Some of the shots she looks curious and confused by the little human shoes.  Good thing she’s out of her chewing phase!

Will sharing what we’ve done in the nursery soon – stay tuned!
