We are going to have a little baby here in less than a month! It's so funny how different my mind-set is with Baby Brother. When I was this far along with Little One I had our bags packed, the nursery ready, and every piece of baby clothing washed with fragrance-free detergent.
With this one, I am so much more relaxed! We haven't even taken a tour of the hospital yet (we're going to do that tonight) I just started getting the nursery together...heck, I just registered last month! There's a lot to be said for experience...
However, there are areas that I am being stretched as I count down the days of Baby Brother's arrival. And I'm not talking about my belly! :0) The first is that I am emotional about a chapter closing between Little One, Momma and Daddy. I really don't know how else to explain it. Our days and moments together are so sweet and fun. I want to savor every moment with Little One. I wonder how I can make the transition more easy for him - I almost feel guilty for the change that is coming his way. The way things are now will never be again. I remember feeling this same way before Little One was born because I knew that the time between me and Hubs would just not be the same. Now please don't worry that I'm not excited about Baby Brother or anything like that. We are thrilled and can't wait to hold, snuggle and love on him!!!
So, I know there are moms who are reading this and have had more than one child - and I ask you this - did you ever feel this way? Any words of wisdom?
I've decided to split this post into two different parts, simply because it was so long! I'll post more tomorrow about the other stretching aspect of my life right now.... :)
Have a great rest of the weekend!
