Caia's Sibling




So, some of you know, but many of you don't, we're pregnant! We are 21 weeks today and had our ultrasound to find out the gender of our baby! Doc says everything is perfect!

Our greatest hope was not for either a boy or a girl, but for a healthy baby! We had a fairly emotionally exhausting pregnancy the first time around, and this one has been so the opposite! We have always received good news from our u/s and blood work, and that has been such a gift to us! 

We will deliver here in San Jose, Costa Rica. We have a WONDERFUL doctor! He delivers all of his own patients, he (himself) does an ultrasound each visit and spends a minimum of 30 minutes with us talking, answering questions, asking questions and really getting to know us.

The downfall was the 9 weeks that I threw-up. I won't go into details, I will just say that I lost 10 pounds during those weeks. Caia began walking in the bathroom and spitting in the toilet because she saw me do it so often. She would come in while I was losing my saltine crackers and pat me on the back and rub my hair. Poor Jonathan had to clean the toilet ALL the time--the TRUE downfalls of only 1 bathroom at a time like that! 

But, we all lived through it and have come out on the other side healthy and excited! (I've even said I'll do it again, 2 just doesn't seem like enough!)


  1. Congrats guys! So fun! We are excited for all of you! I'm sure Caia will be an excellent mommy, I mean helper.

  2. YAY!!! Cheers all around from the Hunts! We are so excited for you guys!

  3. Yeah Congratulations. I know you guys are so excited and I love the name. I laughed out loud with hearing Dr. Kamer say "perfect" because I do know that is his favorite word :)

  4. yay! a healthy boy! We can't wait!! Selvi, Viji, and Pooja are here. They say,
    Selvi:'Congratulations Aunty. I miss you and how is Jonathan Uncle and Caia'
    Viji: Congratulations AUnty. I'm happy to hear that you are having a son. I miss you.
    Pooja: I miss you. It's nice to hear you are going to have a baby boy.

  5. WOOHOO! You are a sneaky one. You and JG do good work, can't wait to see this boy!

  6. Oh how wonderful for y'all! I am so happy for you three and love the name too. Congrats!

  7. I am so happy for y'all. Caia is going to be a great big sister!!
