Jackson sort of understands there is a baby in mommy's tummy and he was able to go to our first ultrasound with us. He got really quiet when we heard the heart beat and was trying to figure out what was going on. We think Jackson will be really excited to be a big brother. He loves all things baby and I’m sure he will be very “helpful” when that time comes!
|Can you dig it? I'm going to be a big Brother!|

Yes, we knew we were expecting before we left the Netherlands but it was just too soon to tell everyone. We would have loved to everyone in person but it just wasn't the right time for us.
I think with Jackson we had our big ultrasound early, but they told us at our appointment this week it won't be until we hit 20 weeks. :( I'm sure you all know how patient I am!
It seems that everyone was on to us and was expecting us to announce we were pregnant right away when we got home. So sorry if we "fibbed" to you and told you no! We just wanted to make sure it was all ok before we told! The second time around I am showing alot earlier so there really isn't an easy way to hide it any more!
There seems there is a baby boom wherever we are :) we know so many people in the Netherlands that are expecting, I'm the 4th in our neighborhood, my brother just had a baby on March 21, and Josh's brother and wife are expecting in April. Our family is growing and we're so excited!
