korourke This little biscuit is halfway cooked today!! Woo! #20weeks !! I can't even believe that in just a few short months he'll be here... So many feelings about that! I'd get into them but I'm giving it everything I got to not pass out in my coffee right now ️ trying to get us all packed for our trip tomorrow and wondering why I booked such an early flight 😑 soooooo much laundry to do still! Pat has been out of town only for a night which seemed like a total breeze but I think the afternoon lull is just hitting me HARD right now, oh and maybe the nap refusals... That might have something to do with it too ;) 2d

korourke In case you missed the news over the weekend, we're adding another sweet boy to our family . I still can't even believe it... For almost this entire pregnancy (almost 20 weeks now) I was CONVINCED this little babe was a she, because this pregnancy has been the COMPLETE opposite of my pregnancy with Arlo! Shock isn't the right word for when we found out that this little one was a boy, because I'd been preparing myself that last week before we found out that just because this pregnancy is so different doesn't mean it's necessarily a different gender, could just be a very different little person compared to their big brother! We'll see if that stays true once we welcome this little guy! Anyway, I've been trying to wrap my head around having TWO sons, trying to visualize my life and it looks like a lot of crazy and chaos also it looks pretty awesome and kind of perfect... In a lot of ways I'm relieved, I have such a great feeling of peace about it, I already have a boy so adding another I know somewhat what to expect, I already am set for a boy with the toys and clothes,
So my wallet is relieved too haha our house is pretty itty bitty so they can share a room and I think that will be a blast for them but honestly, boys are so SWEET and love their mama, what a blessing to get double the love and sweetness! Go ahead and watch my heart melt into a puddle!! We're all SO excited and thrilled, I just can't wait to witness their friendship and bond turn into something so amazing over the years! I felt like it was such a gift to be able to give Arlo a sibling, a lifelong friend to have through their lives, and now the thought of giving him a brother just feels like we're giving him SUCH an incredible gift it's an amazing feeling!! Not to say they won't have their fair share of sibling rivalry and I'm sure a few broken bones here and there from adventures and such, but I'm hoping their bond will trump all of that!! 🏼🏼🏼 thank you God for such a sweet blessing to our family!!! 🏼🏼🏼

korourke This is a throwback ultrasound pic from around 12 weeks but lately I have been DYING to see this little one again and find out if they're a he or a she!! I'm not sure what happened! Last week I was enjoying the not knowing and fine with being in the dark for a bit longer, but this week OH HELL NO! Feelings have CHANGED and I feel like I can't even go another hour without knowing!! it's literally all consuming! From the beginning I felt certain that this little one was a girl... Now that I'm closer to finding out I'm thinking maybe boy? Basically , I don't know, but it's driving me CRAZY! so anyway... Originally I had wanted to wait till the gender reveal party to find out with our loved ones, but now I'm seriously thinking of finding out beforehand and just surprising everyone else!?! I'm torn! Anyone have experiences with this??!? 3w
  •   mollyabateman @korourke I don't know why I waited so long... I think its cause my appointment was just scheduled so late... 3w
  •   korourke @mollyabateman can't imagine... Mines not scheduled until like 23 weeks or something crazy... Wayyyyyyy too impatient for that so I'm going to go to the elective place! 3w
  •   mollyabateman @korourke doctors are such a**holes for making us wait soooo long! Don't they know mommies are DYING to know!! 3w
  •   korourke @korourke seriously!! I want to know who these people are that get it scheduled at like 18weeks!!! Like, 3w
  •   korourke @korourke sorry sent too soon like do they schedule it at their very first apt!?! Because when I try to book it they're all backed up! 3w
  •   mirandalynns_fight4fitness I love your post 3w
  •   mrsmitsueda_ 2w
  •   photosr4lovers We just had our gender reveal and I couldn't wait the 2 days until the party so we peaked and just acted like it was a surprise! ITS A GIRL!! 2w

korourke Selfie because... Good hair day ;) On another note, for the past 2 weeks we've actually got ourselves to church almost on time and everything to find that Arlo will no longer hang in the toddler room...? He use to breeze in happily and now we can't get him to even cross the threshold without crying ... So we've ended up leaving and just watching the sermon online 😕 not sure what to do, anyone else have this issue with their tot? Is it a phase? Will we never get to go to church again!?! ;) 3w
  •   alyssakorinek Totally normal!!! Have them call or page you if he won't stop! I have the nursery ladies take my toddler from me and hold him, and they said he's fine and playing in a less than a minute! 3w
  •   ___hannahhill You are not alone, mama! Mine cries the entire time and it's heartbreaking to leave him and come back to see he's still crying! I have the same feelings, will be excited to read through the comments because I love church and miss it! 3w
  •   kyleenbailey 🏻 in this phase for the last 7 years! Sometimes church happens, sometimes it doesn't. Be in the Word daily, fellowship with other believers. My fav app is 'grace to you' I can listen to John MacArthur sermons anytime, it's awesome :) ! 3w
  •   korourke @kyleenbailey oh gurlllll, I bet the struggle is SO real with 4!! Seriously you deserve an award if you make it to church!! haha! I'm in a woman's bible study that I LOVE and Pat watches Arlo while I go to that so I can just focus its amazing and really does keep me feeling so connected! Our Sermons are online too so that definitely helps! I will have to check out this app! 3w
  •   korourke @___hannahhill oh mama! That is so heartbreaking!! Hopefully our little ones outgrow this issue soon! 3w
  •   korourke @alyssakorinek good to hear! That's going to be my strategy for next week!! 3w
  •   korourke @harley_den that's what I'm thinking too! Next Sunday we'll try leaving him and see how it goes!! 🏼 3w
  •   korourke @mrthomasandme that's going to be my game plan for next week!! Thanks girl! 3w

korourke Trying to like coffee again... 3w
  •   korourke @jjdavids oh man, I feel ya with the whole sleep and Daniel tiger thing haha!! Veryyyyyyyy familiar with that! I found that the yerbe mate tea drinks have saved me from being a complete walking zombie!! They have almost as caffeine as a cup of coffee and I just drink it throughout the day and it keeps my eyelids open... Most of the time 3w
  •   korourke @jornicolemcd congrats on your little man!! He's so darling!! Yes you are in definite NEED of the caffeine!! What is this sbux mobile order you're speaking of???? I need to look into this!! 3w
  •   paige_granadahouse Cool I was curious how that works! Thanks for letting me know 3w
  •   jornicolemcd Thank you! We are pretty smitten with him! Do you have a Starbucks app for gift cards/gold card? You have the option to order from closest Starbucks and pick up in like 4-10 mins! It's a god-send! 3w
  •   korourke @paige_granadahouse are you guys expecting?!? 🏼 3w
  •   paige_granadahouse @korourke noooooooo but warming up to the baby idea this year or next! Hehe 3w

korourke Quick walk around the block with these guys today :) Arlo no longer wants to ride in his stroller for longer than .5 seconds, so walks have become a bit of a circus these days with me trying to keep him from running into the street or into someone's yard... Pretty entertaining tho ;) 3w
