You're one of us Now

I laugh to think that I worried about loving another child as much as I love JJ. Brody has completely captured our hearts. He is so sweet and an absolute delight! I think that he is starting to look more like JJ did as a baby, but he has what appears to be a dimple in his right cheek.. which is so adorable.
When JJ was holding him yesterday he said "he doesn't have any TEETH!" He has been such a cute big brother so far. He is always asking to hold him and to check on him. He has been gentle and loving and it makes me teary to think of the bond that they will always share. Last night some friends brought us dinner (THANKS SO MUCH!) and as I looked around at the four of us gathered around the table, my heart nearly exploded.
Pregnancy is SO worth it.

Sweet post...What a cute lil fam! You are outnumbered by the boy but I am confident you will hold your own! :)

Congrats on your little Brody. He is so adorable! If I lived close I would bring you all the stuff that you couldn't eat when you were pregnant! My first wish when this baby comes out will be a huge glass of OJ!

Congrats. He is so cute and you guys are a cute family. That last picture of your family I am so amazed at how much Jeremy looks like my grandpa Labrum. Wow.

Congratulations! I can see a bit of JJ in him. JJ is so sweet. I love the picture of the three boys in your family. JJ with his arm around Jeremy, looking at his new little brother. So sweet! Do you like being able to bend over and sleep on your tummy?

I understand the feeling you described of worrying about loving another child as much as your first. I felt that way with my first and the second came along. It is funny though how much room there really is in your heart to love! Your growing family is so sweet!

Congrats Rachel! Brody is a doll face! He is so beautiful! It was fun to see you just a few days before after all these years. Good luck with two kids!

Those pictures don't even do him any justice. That boy is GORGEOUS! I want to snuggle him again.
Save me a spot tonight!

he is so cute! I'm glad JJ likes him! JJ seems to like everyone though (except Santa) :) Can't wait to meet the little one and welcome him into the Labrum clan! :) and I agree with Tammy, Jeremy does look like Grandpa Labrum! Congrats again!
