You know how everybody always says every pregnancy is different? I think in many cases that’s true, but there’s one thing that my first and second pregnancies share: the nesting instinct. I nested the crap out of the place when I was pregnant with Kellan.
Ever stop to think about what makes you happy? Really, truly happy?
So…we told Kellan.
I think we were both a little nervous to bring it up, and unsure of how to start the conversation. But last night, after dinner and a dessert of fresh-baked banana bread (yay me!), we did it.
