Big brother levi??!


I searched and searched for the right t-shirt (ok, I went to three stores) but I couldn’t find one anywhere… so I had to make Levi this one instead:

I didn’t take into account how much the word “brother” would stretch over his little tummy… but I love it.

In other news, it’s soooo weird to think that my baby boy is now a big brother!!!

But yes, that’s right friends, all FOUR of us made it safely through Cyclone Yasi last week.

Finding an open store to buy a pregnancy test and confirm my suspicions two days after the cyclone? Well, that was another issue all together!

But eventually I found one.

Ok, two.

Just had to be sure, you know?

Dear friends, what are you expecting in 2011? 🙂

excited to be expecting,
