Mommy's Having a Baby

A family of four takes us on their great journey from bump to new baby brother.

My husband, Charles, and I were so excited (and surprised) to be pregnant with #3 that we told our kids, Violet and Charlie, right away. Soon the growing bump became "JohnnyJune," a combination of our favorite boy and girl names. We knew Violet, who was just over 3, would be thrilled by the idea of another baby. But we worried that Charlie, 1 1/2, might not understand why my tummy was getting so big, and that he might be jealous once his brother or sister arrived. To help with the transition, my husband decided to document the new baby's journey.
