"Again a Dreamer of Dreams"

In one of my favorite books, "Anne's House of Dreams" by L M Montgomery, I always remember this quaint phrase letting the reader know that Anne is expecting another baby:
" For Anne was again a dreamer of dreams"....

Well, I am happy to convey that I am once again a dreamer of dreams. :-) Dreams of a precious little baby who promises to join us sometime around September 12th this year.
I dream of what this new baby will look like, whether it will be another boy, or a girl this time. I even decorate the baby's nursery in my mind before I go to sleep at night. One version for a girl, and another for a boy.

Ben and I are so excited! The boys were thrilled to hear the good news, although the time until the baby's arrival will seem so long to them.

I had this vintage print hanging in the boys' room for several years, and will use it in this new baby's room, as well. :-)

Congratulations!!!! I must say this post does not come as a complete surprise... someone may have breathed a hint to me already. Heeheehee. :D

How very exciting! I'm so happy for you! Do you plan to find out the gender, or do you like to wait and be surprised?

Jessica said...

Thanks, girls. :-)
Miss Dashwood, the wait until the 20 week ultrasound is long enough. ha So, yes, we like to find out the gender ahead of time. ;-)

So excited, dahling! :D :D I hope it is a girl, but I've become rather accustomed to nephews as well and I'm sure I wouldn't mind another one. ;) I adoooore that picture. As I probably told you when I saw it upon your wall. Heehee.

Very sweet post, by the bye. :)
