introducing josiah benjamin! aka: jojo-bean!!!!!!!

Josiah's Profile

Bean is a Boy!

i was right – i was disappointed for half a second, but i am really excited and happy. jeremiah and josiah will be BEST BUDS!

the most disappointing thing, aside from jerry not being able to go to the appointment ( πŸ™ ) is that josiah measured at 2 weeks later than what we thought! so instead of being 19 weeks today, i am 16 weeks 6 days!!!! noooooooooooooooooo! so i’m due august 24. so i’m thinking hopefully he will be born august 18 and keep the 18th tradition up. LOL. (my bday is dec 18 and jeremiah’s is jan 18)

dear josiah,
WOW it feels great to say that. to say your name, and know who you are. you are so precious and wonderful. i love you SOOOOO much!!! it was so wonderful to see you moving around, to see your little face and hands and feet. you are so adorable, and look just like your big bubby did when we saw his ultrasounds! you were a lot less active, which i hope means you will be calmer than your busy brother! lol. i need to write you a song little one.
i am so happy to know you will be in my arms soon!!! i LOVE YOU josiah benjamin!!!!!!!!!!!!
ps, your papa just informed me that no one better call you joe. he doesn’t like that for a nickname for you. πŸ˜‰
love,
mama

God bless and thanks for all the prayers everyone!!!!!!!!!!!

    He is such a cutie! When I went in for my big Ultrasound, they changed my DD to Oct 15, but I refused to accept that LOL. So I stuck with the Oct 7th, and he was born Sept 22, almost a month early.

  15. When we named our son Josiah I didn’t want Joe for short either.
    When we named our son Josiah I didn’t want Joe for short either. Hated it. But I find I call him that often. I also call him JoJo or Jo-Gee. I’m not sure where Jo-Gee came from, but that is one of his nicknames. I call him Josiah probably 70% of them time though:) Congratulations on your little Joisah! What a blessing. You’ll need all new clothes though because your boys are directly out of season. GO SHOPPING! LOL!

  16. Well, Jenn I am so happy that you finally have pics to see Josia
    Well, Jenn I am so happy that you finally have pics to see Josiah. Let me tell you there is nothing more special than brothers. The way they play and love each other is amazing! Well, congrats and thank you so much for coming to the party. I hope Jeremiah had a good time. I think most of the kids did.

  17. Yay!! Congratulations! Woohoo Josiah!

    Congratulations! Two boys are tiring but atleast you can reuse most of Jeremy’s clothes! Don’t worry about due dates, with my first I was a week late and with the second two weeks early…

    I am so happy for you!!!! …. Sorry to hear you are later than you thought… But I kind of thought you might be, because you barely got a positive test on the 18th, and I had one on the 3rd… But whenever Josiah makes an appearance will be the PERFECT day for his birthday! πŸ˜€

    Love the name by the way! πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations again!

    Hugs!

    Wow, he’s absolutely adorable. Look at that profile! I am so excited for you, although I know having your due date pushed back just stinks. Way to have an already long experience be lengthened! Sheesh. Well congratulations. Happy to meet you Josiah!

  22. ::laughs:: AEIRIIEGHGHG! That was my nonsensical thrilled noise!
    ::laughs:: AEIRIIEGHGHG! That was my nonsensical thrilled noise! I’m going to try and get on MSN in a little while (Eli is ALMOST down for a nap), but I’m actually very excited for your little guy. If it makes you feel any better, the odds are that I’m having a second little guy too, and he’ll probably measure small and they’ll probably bump my due date to sometime in September. πŸ˜‰ So don’t sweat it! They think I’m a week later too, so right now we’re probably the exact same time along.

    Thanks for posting so quickly! I was going out of my mind with anxiousness. Hehe.

  23. I’m so happy for you! Congratulations! Jeremiah will be a wonde
    I’m so happy for you! Congratulations! Jeremiah will be a wonderful big brother and little Josiah will be such a happy addition to your family! We are due the same time now. I am acutally due on the 23rd of August but will schedule a C-Section the week before. 2 Boys…what a blessing. Congrats again!
