It's a(nother) boy!

...and we couldn't be more thrilled!

We are happy to announce (to facebook land) that we are expecting baby boy #2 in July!
As we are both the #2 in our families we are excited to meet our 2nd born and become a party of 4.
Also, loving our siblings as we do…we are overjoyed for both our boys that they now have each other.
I am just about 20 weeks along and all is well. 

We have had a busy first half of this pregnancy with moving and musicals and keeping up with a toddling toddler. We are overjoyed with this blessing and now that we are (somewhat) settled we can focus on preparing our hearts and home for "brother" as we are already calling him. 

As for the streak of boys...
Yes, our son is the 8th Meredith male baby since Christoper was born in 1981 but did you know he will also be the 8th male Barber great-grandchild in a row! SO fun! :) 

Please pray for all of us as we go through this journey. 
With thankful hearts, 
Kate and JJ

Richard Scarry's Color Book

Noah's Book Club: February 2013

Title: Richard Scarry's Color Book
let's learn our colors

Author: Richard Scarry 

Why Noah picked it: My Mom brought this book home from Grandma's was hers when she was little. I love it! In fact, just today Daddy has read it to me 5 times already. And guess what?? I am actually learning my colors! At the end of the book, there is a page with all the colors and I love to point to each one as Daddy quizzes me. I also love to see oranges (a favorite food of mine) and the frog on the green page. We have another book by the same author that I am enjoying lately called Best First Book Ever! it is big and full of hundreds of fun things to look at. Richard Scarry gets an A+ from me!
