A new member will be joining the Bringing Up Bates family very soon. Josie Bates and Kelton Balka are hard at work preparing to meet the newest addition to their family. On social media, Josie has been sharing sneak peeks of all of the preparations they are making.
On her Instagram stories, Josie shared a few new snaps. In one, she wrote that she was working on going through her clothes and “getting baby stuff ready!” She’s been posting photos and videos of the projects she’s been working on around the house as well. She just finished scrubbing the cabinets a couple of days ago.
In another snap, one-year-old Willow is sitting on a blanket outside with her stuffed animals, a snack, and a drink. Josie writes, “Willow sharing with her stuffed animals. I think she’s gonna be a good big sissy!” In a similar photo, the mom calls her daughter “so sweet!”
So, it looks like Kelton and Josie aren’t the only ones who are ready to meet baby Hazel Sloane. Willow is starting to think about her baby sister too. It’s likely that the young parents talk to her about her baby sister to help her get used to the idea. From the photo, it looks like Willow understands what’s going on. She’s certainly growing up quickly, and fans agree that she will be a great big sister.
A couple of weeks ago, Josie had a shower for the second baby on the way. She received lots of nice items and spent some quality time with her family. In her post, Josie writes, “So thankful to welcome baby Hazel surrounded by such amazing friends and family 🤍”
