“Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.” – Marc Brown
Pretty soon Jamisen will find out what it’s like to be better than a superhero! We’re expecting a second little Bramble Bump who is due to arrive in May. We are over-the-moon excited. For those of you doing the math, that means the siblings will be 25 months apart (almost to the day!). This pregnancy has been surprisingly easy. I haven’t been sick that much and other than the normal, first-trimester-tireds and the expanding waistline, it’s been a way easier than pregnancy compared to the first. Soon, our little family of 3 will become a family of 4. We can hardly wait.

Leslie @ LillaSyster Soap Co. says
Congratulations to your sweet family!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! 😀 Congrats!
I was wondering when #2 would come along… Mom said she had a feeling that you’d be announcing #2 soon, IDK how she knew lol. I remember shortly after Jamisen was born you couldn’t wait for another one 😉 Hope you have a good & healthy pregnancy!
PS Mom says she wouldn’t mind sharing her birthday w/ the bramble baby #2 heehee
Clearly your Mom is genius – always listen to her =)
I do love May babies (of course, since I am one, it totally makes me biased) =)
So happy for you!!!
Oh, yes! Awesome family pic, too! 🙂
Congrats, Anne-Marie! Whoo-hoo! I love babies! Everyone should have at least 3…we need more tax payers…lol.

Oh Anne-Marie! How absolutely marvelous! I must admit I was hoping you would be “adding to the family” soon. I come from a family of 9 myself and the more the merrier I say! Congratulations!
We were SO happy when we found out – and my folks were up so we were able to share with them right as it happened and that made it even better!
Congratulations on the new addition! I have 4 ages from 7, 5, 3, and 11 months. Enjoy this time it is precious and you will be extremely busy! Can’t imagine doing all you do with two little ones!
Congratulations! I have two boys and a girl, the boys are 22 months apart and they are the best of buddies. They will definately give you the exercise but it is much fun!
Congratulations! All the best to you and yours!
What Great news! So glad Jamisen will have a brother or sister! I think he will be a great big brother!
Have fun, they grow up so fast!
Congratulations you to and your family. Wishing you all the best.
Wonderful news and I look forward to following the baby updates! Congratulations to you all and a special hug to Jamison, the Big Brother! xx
Crystal Pompee says
Congratulations to you and your family Anne-Marie. My daughter and son are 26 months apart and I love it. They play great together, my oldest is almost 5. Having two in diapers isn’t too bad though. Plus it is all worth it, right?! And another plus in a May baby, although I am a late May baby (Gemini) 🙂
I love May babies since I’m a May baby – so probably a little biased =)
a big congrats!!
Marielitos Archila Garcia says

Congratulations to you and your family! God bless!

Suzanne Alexander says
Congratulations to you and your family, Anne-Marie. What exciting news! A spring baby is so nice (mostly because it means you aren’t pregnant over the summer. My daughter was born in April – 31 years ago!!)
Tell me about it! And in Bellingham, no one has air conditioner so it can get warm for a few months =)
Congratulations to you and your beautiful family! My 2 boys are 22 months apart and they are the best of friends. 🙂
I’m sure that Jamisen would very much like me to have a little boy! =)
Im so happy for you and your family may blessing and enjoy thanksgiving
How exciting…such happy news! Congratulations Anne-Marie! I’m so happy for all three of you! It’s so awesome that you share your family with everyone. It’s so much fun to watch your life unfold! Good luck with your pregnancy and I’ll look forward to watching you grow and seeing your new little blessing!
What great news!! Congratulations! 🙂

Vielen Dank für Deine netten Kommentage, darüber habe ich mich sehr gefreut!
Congratulations Anna-Marie! You look radiant 🙂
I am really happy for you!I Wish you an easy pregnancy!
Congrats, AM! You sent congrats my way when I posted my news over @ my blog that I was expecting, and turns out you are expecting the same month! Exciting!
Our first two were 13 months apart, this one will be 33 months – I am super excited and hope it’s MUCH easier than the first two were. Maybe I’ll have helpers?!
Hope all continues to go well!
Ah, yes, you’ll have helpers! That will be so great for you. My girlfriend just had her third and her oldest are big helpers. She also said they older two conspire to outnumber and trick the parents so there’s that little nugget of wisdom for you too …
Congratulations, just wait until the first time you go from saying we have one child to children. It took us 9 yrs to be able to say it and it was wonderful.
Fab news Anne-Marie, Congratulations!
Congrats, congrats!!! We are so happy for you. You look radiant! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy.
That’s nice of you to say since right now, I’m just in the chubby phase =)

Amy @ Sunbreak Soaps says
Congratulations! What exciting news! 🙂
Awesome news!!! Congratulations! I’m so happy for you. 😀
How awesome is that!
So happy for you. We just found out that our dtr will be having another as well. She should be due in July so it will be great watching yours and hers. Looking forward to updates and eager to hear if it is a girl or a boy.
Oh fun! You’re just a little behind us so I’ll be thinking of you as we hit our milestones. We find out at the end of December what we’re having and I have a really elaborate idea for telling our folks what we’re having involving bath fizzies =)
Awwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!! How precious! Congrats!!!!!! 😀
YAY A-M! Congratulations are in order! I just found out last night that we’re expecting again. So nervous, but so thrilled!
Oh that’s awesome! You’re just a couple months behind me then. We can be pregnancy buddies =)

Congratulations Anne-Marie, Chris and Jamison !! How exciting and such a blessing. All my best to you.

Congratulations to you and your family! Another Blessing 🙂
Just in time for Thanksgiving! Congratulations!
Awww congratulations Anne-Marie, so happy for you <3
Congrats! It really is exciting, isn’t it?
If you’re worried about diapers, try Diaper Free Before Three! I really liked her book, and it helped quite a bit. My daughter was done with diapers shortly after her second birthday.
Thanks for the suggestion! =)
Congrats to your little family’s new addition! We loved the photo of him poking your little baby bump!
Love spring birthdays!
Very Exciting times! I have babies, well they’re 15, 10, 8, 4, and my 9 month old. All different pregnancies but all blessings! I would love to do it again. =)
Hoping you have a healthy and happy pregnancy!
I am excited to see the updates that will be coming. And a high five to Big Bro!
Wow! You are a brave woman! Such a wide age range but it’s good to hear that you’d do it again. We are very excited for baby number 2.
Congratulations Anne-Marie (Chris and Jamison too!!) You have a beautiful family! 🙂
So excited for you and your family! Big congratulations:-) My two are 27 months apart and it worked out well. Close enough to play together and not so close that you have 2 in diapers for very long (if at all!)
We were going to potty train Jamisen around 2 years (assuming he was ready) but his doctor suggested waiting. Apparently, the new baby wearing diapers might set him back a bit so we’ll wait for a couple months after the new baby is born. But then, we’ll be able to say things like ‘Babies wear your diapers and you’re a big brother so you don’t want to wear a diaper, right?” =)
Maybe I was just very lucky! My first child (a girl) was very motivated to potty train. She just decided she didn’t want to wear diapers anymore one day and that was pretty much it. Pullups at night for a little while, but just in case. Boys are usually a little slower I think (mine was) I think it’s better to wait until they are at least interested in the potty. No sense rushing them for sure:-)
Awwwww! How exciting and a BIG congrats to your little family! I will have to make sure I check in more and more for updates! Super exciting!! 😀 😀
Congrats!!! Wow, how exciting!!
Best wishes! Such wonderful news!
Congrats, Anne-Marie! We are expecting our first in May as well. Wishing you continued good health.
Yay! That is awesome. Congrats to you as well – and here’s to May babies, right?!
Congratulations! Your family, including the extended, have plenty of love for many more children. Enjoy every moment.
Jeanine Van Voorhees says
Congratulations and hope this pregnancy goes well for you.
Stacey H. says
Yay!! 🙂 Congrats to you and your growing family!!! My two boys are exactly 20 months apart to the day…I won’t lie and say it’s easy, but it’s definitely worth it in having them grow up together. And to have a May baby, well that is just a wonderful month, not that I’m biased or anything myself since my youngest son, my husband, and myself are all May babies too!
Best of luck to you and may you continue to have a happy, healthy pregnancy! I look forward to all the updates. 🙂
I’m biased too! I’m a May baby and my best friend was born 2 days before me. =) I can’t wait to meet this little one to see if s/he is anything like me =)
Oh my gosh! Congrats! That is so exciting!
Sweet! Your family is pretty cute!!!
Thank you! I think so too but I might be just a tad biased =)
What happy news! Many, many congratulations.
Tc Fergus says
SO excited for you! Our oldest was just over 3 when our second was born, it’s definitely a good thing to have some time between them! Congrats!
I’ve been wondering when baby #2 will come around. I’m so happy for you and your family!
Isn’t it funny how we want to do it all over again?
I know! Though now I’m questioning the wisdom of two in diapers =))
I had two in diapers and it was no problem. I think it was Easier because I never got used to not needing the diaper bag. Mine are 18 months apart and pretty much potty trained at the same time. Congratulations. Have FUN!
Marti Robinson says
Yay!!! SO excited for you! You’re due just before me 🙂 Congrautlations! 🙂
Thunder Bay Soap Company says
Congratulations!! How awesome! I know Jamisen will be a GREAT big brother!!!
Congratulations!!! I’m due with our first in May as well. 🙂
Yay! Little Taurus babies are the best (and of course, eh hem, I wouldn’t be just saying that because I was born in May! ha ha). Congrats to you too.
Mary Schnibben says
Congrats! What a cute little family you have – best wishes for a safe, healthy pregnancy! I just became a grandma for the 5th time in Feb and a great-grandma just a couple mos before that!
I am so very happy for you!!! My first two are 21.5 months apart and I LOVE that spacing!
We were pretty excited about the spacing too. Now, the wait is on to see if it’s a little girl or a little boy! =)
Heather W says
Congrats! I’m expecting my second in April! It is so exciting…
Congratulations!!! My second was easier than my first as well. And my boys were 27 months apart! 🙂 Much love and light to your family!
So much easier – like to the point where I was craving ultrasounds so I could make sure everything was okay!
