Today, we are only a few weeks away from the birth of our little boy. Feeling overwhelmed by my lack of blog posting, I have finally come to the conclusion (with good conscience!) that I need to take full advantage of these few weeks to spend quality time with my oldest while continuing to nurture this little one still growing inside me.
While anxiously awaiting the birth of our son, there’s part of me that’s a little bittersweet. I love spending days with my three-year old girl — building tents, learning to read, cooking together, etc. I know all of that will change – at least temporarily. Tired (and HUGE!) as I am, I am trying to soak up every precious minute with her until her sweet little brother arrives.
I have heard from many parents-of-two (or more) that it’s natural to feel apprehensive about adding an additional child, but in the end, your heart expands to equally love all your children. While I am certain this is true, I’d love to hear how it applied to all of you in real life. Please share your thoughts! In the meantime, I’ll be sure to post pictures of the little one when he’s born and get back to blogging as soon as the time is right.
Anxiously awaiting this baby boy!
